Item: Padmé Amidala and Leia Organa 100-piece puzzle
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Size: 10″ x 13″
Price: $1 – $3

This puzzle features three images of Padmé Amidala and two images of Leia Organa. For Padmé, two images from Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones. Similar to Day 89’s mini-puzzle, her Geonosis arena outfit and Naboo Picnic attire are seen. Her Naboo Celebration outfit from the end of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace is the third image. Leia is seen in her two iconic outfits: her white robe from A New Hope and her Jabba’s Prisoner outfit from Return of the Jedi. This is just one of very few items that have featured Padmé and her daughter.

My puzzle records are rather non-specific, so I can only guess that this was bought at Walmart.

When Padmé Amidala is under the protection of Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker on Naboo, she wears a beautiful, multi-colored dress. Even though we only see the collar and her hair, the look is so iconic that you can tell that this is what she is wearing in the sketch.

Years before he created a print with all of Padme Amidala’s costumes for Star Wars Celebration IV, he did some prints of single outfits. In this print, Padme is portrayed in the wedding dress she wore for her secret wedding on Naboo to Jedi Anakin Skywalker.

I purchased this print from Jason Palmer at Dragon*Con on September 5, 2005.
