Item: Queen Amidala (Coruscant) action figure
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Episode I (1999), Comtech Chip #10
Price: $4.99

This is the third action figure of Padmé, as portrayed by Natalie Portman, in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. It is No. 10 in Hasbro’s line of Episode I figures, When addressing the Galactic Senate on Coruscant, Queen Amidala of Naboo wears this red gown.

The CommTech chip plays the following lines:

  • “The Naboo system has been invaded by the droid armies of the trade.”
  • “I’ve come to resolve this attack on our sovereignty now”
  • “I suggest new leadership is needed!”

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

Item: Queen Amidala Theed Invasion action figure and Jedi Force File
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Power of the Jedi
Year: 2000
Price: $5

The Power of the Jedi line of Hasbro 3 3/4″ action figures sees Queen Amidala of Naboo in the red gown she wore when Theed was invaded by the Trade Federation. The bulbs in the skirt do not light up. Supposedly, there is a variation in the color of the legs of the figure, but I can not confirm that it exists. I have never opened the Jedi Force File to see what it contains. If I still have duplicates of the figure I might do that..

I purchased this at Target or Toys R Us in 2000.

Day 184: Queen Amidala Celebration Ceremony figure



Item: Queen Amidala Celebration Ceremony
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Original Trilogy Collection Transitional Figures
Number: ’05 #4
Price: $4.99

The back of the card reads: “Queen Amidala and the inhabitants of Naboo celebrate their victory over the invasion of the Trade Federation. The Queen wears a decorative parade gown as the jubilant crowd cheers their freedom. The Gungans present Amidala with a Globe of Peace to thank her for her heroic efforts to protect the inhabitants of Naboo.”

When the original trilogy collection figure line came to an end, Hasbro continued to use the same general design for a handful of figures before the Revenge of the Sith line began.

I may have purchased this figure at Walmart.

Hasbro’s 3 3/4″ Black Series began in 2013 with what had originally been planned as a wave of Droid Factory figures. Padmé Amidala kicked off the line as figure #01 and was joined by seven other figures in the first wave. It had been since 2002 that Amidala was produced in a midriff-baring figure in this scale. In 2015, the figure saw limited release on a Droid Factory card.

I purchased this figure at Toys R Us in Summer 2013.
