Starting a new weekly/biweekly (as I get around to it) feature at JD.com, what's missing from the Hasbro line. First up...Episode I Padme Amidala.Padme Handmaiden
While fleeing from the invading armies of the Trade Federation, the wily Amidala disguises herself as a Handmaiden to lessen her risk of being captured. Padme rides aboard the Royal Starship in this outfit. A Handmaiden was a choice in Fan Choice #5, perhaps this figure has a good shot at being made.Amidala Travel Gown
One of the few figures to be made as a 12" figure and not in the 3-3/4" line. This lush purple gown was worn aboard the Royal Starship as the Jedi and Panaka are discussing where to land the Starship for repair. Also note that she also wears this gown to Qui Gon's funeral. There is a good chance this one might get made eventually, especially since they made the 12" Figure.Amidala Pre-Senate Gown
Worn while in the offices of Senator Palpatine, this gown is very ornamental in nature. A nice nod to the kamino style dresses of Japan! Not seen for very long, this figure is a real long shot.Amidala Post-Senate Gown
After her Senate speech, Amidala confides to Jar Jar that she is unsure of what will happen on Naboo. She is dissapointed in the political machine that is the Senate. This gown is seen when she greets Palpatine on his return to Naboo after the defeat of the Trade Federation. Another good choice for a figure, one that represents multiple scenes.Amidala Naboo Celebration Gown
One of my personal favorite scenes of The Phantom Menace is the closing parade featuring the Naboo and Gungans celebrating the defeat of the Trade Federation. One of the most demanded figures yet to be made for Episode I, the Celebration Gown Amidala was a strong rumor for late 2004. Lets hope this one pans out!
Stay Tuned for Part 2 of this report where we look at the 10!!! Padme figures yet to be made for Attack of the Clones.
Mucho thanks to the Padawans Guide
