Update 2: I’m proud to present the exclusive first look at the cover and sample page from the LEGO Collector catalog, issued by the company in honor of the 50th anniversary of the LEGO brick. Click the images for full-sized versions.

Fantasia Verlag, a German publisher that specializes in collectors catalogs, will be releasing “LEGO Collector,” an 800-page guide of every single LEGO set ever produced since 1958 through 2008, all in glorious color. It’s going to be €23 in Germany, but there are currently no announced plans for releasing the guide in the US, despite the catalog including all sets unique to the US, Asia, or Australia.

From the press release:

50 years of play, fun and joy – around 8.000 LEGO® sets in one book
Key data LEGO® Collector:
· Expected date of publication: May 2008
· Around 800 pages
· Bilingual: English / German
· Around 8.000 sets printed in colour
· One chapter for every year: 1958 – 2008
· Additional information: number of components; available from/until
· Rating (1-6 LEGO® Bricks) to establish the rareness of sets
· Extra: Chapter with key rings
· Extra: List of all published Service-Sets
· Index to quickly find the desired sets
· MSRP 22,90€ (Germany); the price may vary in other EU countries due to different
tax regulations

I must have this catalog. I’ve reached out to my LEGO contacts to see if we can expect it here.

Update: LEGO has confirmed to me that this will be released in the US at some point in the future. (This year, I suspect.) More details to come!

    The cover image doesn’t display correctly because it’s CMYK. Most (if not all) browsers will need it to be in RGB.
