I'm more impressed with the Padme all the time. They've nailed Natalie Portman's size and demeanor perfectly. It's like a tiny Portman in there.

It's a bit hard to tell from the pic but Rabe looks a bit too light in color. Maybe its just the pic. I've been waiting forever for this figure so I'll limit my complaints.


I still hate the lazy card modification. That scene description thing on the front bubble is craptastic. Their choice of backgrounds are less than compelling, too. All those great shots of exterior parts of Naboo, all bright and full of color, and they pick the bland white Royal Starship throne room, and drop the throne directly behind the figure. Then they pick an outside shot of Naboo for Padme that has no contrast at all. Sloppy.

At last - at long last - handmaidens.  She'll pass for Padme.  Like Chewie, I'll buy many.   :)

Celebration Padme: perfect.

Yeah put me down for 5 Handmaidens and a Padme, I cannot believe it took them 5 years to do this obvious Army Builder.  I bought 5 Padme Tatooines on clearance this Spring to double for the Purple Gowned Handmaidens seen on Coruscant, 5 of these beauties will be just lovely!

Padme looks amazing, the list shrinks by one, there are 2 more must haves for Episode I (Return to Naboo and Pre-Senate) IMO, this was a huge one and another I can't believe took 5 years to get

Anyone else get a cancellation of Wave 1 from EE? It sounds like they're rolling orders into Wave 2... where the ratios are different, not bad, but not army-builderific like Wave 1 was.

Hasbro gets a case assortment right for once, and prompty cancels it. Good job, you tools.

$79.99?!?  :o

Cripes!

I guess that means that the retail on these suckers is gonna jump back up to $6-7 per figure!   >:(

I wonder if TRU/Target/Wally will jump before or after Christmas?

I know I'll be jumping... out of SW toys, if the price goes up.

But, don't you see? That's the nostalgia part of the "Post-OTC" prequel figure line. Its designed to make you think back fondly to the days of Episode 1, and 5.99-6.99 figure prices. Hooray Hasbro!

Meh, I was excited about Padme but her paint apps are HORRIBLE.  Her face is not very good at all.  Same goes for Rabe (a face only a mother could love!) but her paint is pretty cool actually



Padme looks like she is bowling for some reason to me, its odd how she's articulated

Looks like I'll be passing on this wave. Though I may pick up Padme and the Wookiee senator later.
