Item: Padmé Naberrie with Pod Race View Screen action figure
Line: Episode I (1999), Comtech Chip #4
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.
