Padme, she's good... She's very crisp, good detail, and beside the elbow pin being **** (absolutely, totally, BS), she is truly an awesome figure. Great articulation, love the Droid blaster and wish I could buy packs of these alone, and I thought the deco was pretty spot on but that one pin... But she isn't the wave winner like some are saying.
Luke is the wave's winner at this point. Here's why.
Hmmmm... I think you convinced me to pick up the Luke. I had considered it a repaint and wasn't going to bother, but it sounds like it's a worthwhile purchase. I was really torn on Padme since I wanted to upgrade her, but again, I wasn't sure it was necessary. My collection is still boxed so I don't have the figures handy to see how badly upgrades are needed, but you sold me.
