Day 192: “Clone Wars” by Cat Staggs

Cat Staggs

Title: “Clone Wars”
Artist: Cat Staggs
Size: 16″ x 24″
Price: $15

Cat Staggs seems to have taken four of the images she drew on sketch cards for Topps’ The Clone Wars trading cards and combined them into a print. Clockwise from the top left, we see Asajj Ventress, Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano.

I purchased this print from Cat Staggs at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 4, 2009.

Item: “So This Is How Liberty Dies, With Thunderous Applause…”
Set: Star Wars Galactic Files series 2
Subset: Classic Lines
Manufacturer: Topps
Card: CL-6
Price: $65.94 (included in complete set)

After years of manipulation and deception on a galactic scale, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine seizes ultimate control of the Senate under the pretest of defending this union of myriad worlds from Jedi aggression. Aware of what is truly transpiring, a forlorn and bitter Padmé Amidala comments on the irony of this tragic development.

My boxes of Galactic Files series 2 cards did not contain the expected inserts, so I bought a nearly complete mini-master set from Cedar Cliff Collectibles in August 2013.

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.

Day 189: Queen Amidala Theed Invasion action figure

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.

Item: Star Wars Celebration III badges pin set
Event: Star Wars Celebration III
Price: $170

I couldn’t find a good picture of the pin set, so I’ve included a photo of the actual badges. As you can see, both the adult and child badges for Saturday feature Senator Amidala. The adult badge has art based on Revenge of the Sith, while the child’s badge has art based on Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series.

I pre-ordered the set from Intergalactic Trading Company at Star Wars Celebration III in Indianapolis, Indiana, and received it later that month.

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.
