About maybe 15 years ago, here in Germany (probably existed in other countries, too, but I don't know for sure), there was a Star Wars collection. I don't know how to name it otherwise. It was something where you subscribed to a magazine and got weekly issues with some pages, which you could collect in given folders.

I think it was officially licensed stuff. It contained a lot of information about the stories happened in the movies, but also about planets, species, technology and also a lot of information which is now considered EU, like things that happened long after ROTJ. It also had a lot of very detailed blueprints of ships, crafts and weapons.

I don't have those old folders anymore, and they were not complete back then (still I had 3 or 4 folders with estimated 300 pages). I want to see if I can find this collection somewhere online or in physical form, but I don't know what to look for other than "Star Wars Collection". Maybe someone knows what I mean and can give me additional information about it.

I know that I can probably find all information I ever wanted to know about Star Wars in some Wikis, but I liked that collection.

    You can find all the information you ever want to know about Star Wars by searching here and if it’s not on here yet by asking here ;) – Edlothiad Nov 1 '17 at 10:54

This could be the The Official Star Wars Fact File.

This was published by De Agostini as a weekly magazine between 2002 and 2005. It ran for 140 editions and was organized into six major categories:

  • Battles & Events
  • Characters
  • Planets & Locations
  • Droids
  • Weapons & Technology
  • Vehicles

It was published in Germany and in most of Europe

  • Yep, the Fact File, that was it. Thank you =) – Matthias Nicklisch Nov 1 '17 at 11:58
  • Glad to help :), I saw the adverts for this collection here in the UK at the time, but wasn't in the position to collect them. I guess it stuck in my memory though - Star Wars geek that I can be ;) – Alith Nov 1 '17 at 12:01
