Item: Padmé Amidala Snow Bunny
Set: Galactic Files Series 2
Manufacturer: Topps

Series 2 of Galactic Files includes a large section of cards depicting characters from Expanded University sources. While most of these characters exist only in the EU, there are also cards for Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Luke Skywalker. This card is based on Star Wars: Clone Wars but uses a realistic re-imagination using the likeness of Natalie Portman.

I purchased two boxes from Dave & Adam;s Card World.

Following the release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars in cinemas, Topps released two sets of trading cards. Far rarer of the two was the set of trading card stickers.  Padmé Amidala was featured on three character stickers (40, 42, and 43) and one scene card: Amidala Joins The Fight (71). With her limited role in the film, Senator Amidala does not appear in the three main sets of chase cards.

I bought these cards from a variety of sources, but probably completed a set with the cards I bought at Target.

Much like the Star Wars Galaxy sets produced by Topps, the Rebel Legion costuming group created a series of  art cards to raise money for Make-A-Wish. This set was distributed at Star Wars Celebration VI. I own both the original sketch and the card created from it.
