This notebook from Japan is part of a recently released collection of Star Wars notebooks by Kokuyo. There are two sets of 5 notebooks. This one comes in a set with Boba Fett, Han Solo, R2-D2 and a stormtrooper, as you can see below. The other set has Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, Yoda, Darth Vader and Chewbacca notebooks. The have 30 pages and are 179mm x 252mm (or roughly 7 x 10 inches) so they’re on the small side.

All of the notebooks have a different image on the back cover: Princess Leia giving R2 the plans to the Death Star for R2-D2, Greedo for Han, Slave One for Boba Fett, Vader for the stormtrooper and Salacious Crumb for Jabba (as you can see above). They’re all the same on the inside: lined with a stormtrooper on one side and R2 on the other.

The images used are the same line art images that I’ve seen on other products (the Jabba was used on a baseball cap made by Fresh Caps a few years ago, for example). It’s always a little disappointing when licensed products reuse artwork like this, but it’s probably preferable to reusing the same stock photos of the characters that we always seem to see.

When I bought these, I figured I wouldn’t be returning to Japan anytime soon, but as it turns out we found a reasonably good deal on airfare, and so our whole family will be heading to Japan in June to visit my wife’s family. Maybe I’ll pick up some more of these.
