Day 120: Star Wars Heritage Etched Foil

Heritage-Foil

Item: Etched-Foil Card
Artist: Jan Duursema, Dan Parsons
Set: Star Wars Heritage
Manufacturer: Topps
Card: 5 of 6
Price: $132 (for 2 boxes of cards)

Star Wars Heritage was the first set from Topps to include images from all six films. Of course, with Revenge of the Sith not released until the following year, there were only a few cards which revealed very few details. In addition to the 120-card base sest and 30 stickers, there were two sets of six etched-foil cards in the same style as Star Wars Galaxy. This card comes from the first  wave of cards.

I purchased two boxes of Star Wars Heritage from Fadads Collectibles in October 2004.

Day 118: Padmé Naberrie with Pod Race View Screen action figure

Ep1 Padme Naberrie

Ep1 Padme Naberrie card back

Item: Padmé Naberrie with Pod Race View Screen action figure
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Episode I (1999), Comtech Chip #4
Price: $4.99

This is the first action figure of Padmé, as portrayed by Natalie Portman, in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. It is No. 4 in Hasbro’s line of Episode I figures, While stranded on Tatooine, Padmé is in disguise as a handmaiden of the Queen of Naboo. She is packed with the view screen on which she can watch Anakin’s podracer during the Boonta Eve Podrace.

The CommTech chip plays the following lines:

  • “I’ve been trained in defense, I can take care of myself..”
  • “You’re a funny little boy, how do you know so much?”
  • “These junk dealers must have a weakness of some kind.”

I purchased this figure during midnight madness at the Bellevue Toys R Us on May 3, 1999.

Day 115: Queen Amidala (Naboo) action figure

Ep1 Queen Amidala
Ep1 Padme Naberrie card back

Item: Queen Amidala (NABOO) with Blaster Pistols
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Episode I (1999), Comtech Chip #6
Price: $4.99

This is the first Queen Amidala figure from Hasbro. Some fans were annoyed that by naming this figure Queen Amidala, it spoiled the deception that Padmé, the Queen’s handmaiden was actually the Queen of Naboo.  This figure comes with the pistol used in the courtyard, while a later figure in this outfit comes with ascension gun used to reach a higher floor in Theed Palace.

The CommTech chip plays the following lines:

  • “Now viceroy, this is the end of your occupation here.”
  • “I am Queen Amidala.”
  • “This is my decoy, my loyal bodyguard.”
  • “If we do not act quickly, all will be lost forever.”

I purchased this figure during midnight madness at the Bellevue Toys R Us on May 3, 1999.
