Day 173: Black Series #01 Padmé Amidala action figure

20150326_005749 20150326_005803

Item: Padmé Amidala action figure
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Line: Black Series 3 3/4″
Number: #01
Price: $9.99

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.

Day 172: Marvel Star Wars #1 sketch variant by Roy Cover

Star Wars comic 1 sketch Roy Cover

Item: Padmé Amidala sketch on cover of Star Wars #1
Artist: Roy Cover
Publisher: Marvel
Image Size:6 1/4″ x 7 3/4″
Price: $80

Marvel took over publishing Star Wars comics at the beginning of 2015. Issue #1 had over 100 different covers including a blank sketch variant. After missing out on every Topps Star Wars Masterwork sketch card by Roy Cover, I jumped at the chance to buy this larger color sketch where the Senator is depicted in the blue outfit she wore on Tatooine with Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

I purchased this comic on eBay directly from Roy Cover with a Best Offer of $80 on July 14, 2015.

Item: Star Wars: Attack of the Clones Little Golden Book
Illustrator: Ethen Beavers
Author: Christopher Nicholas
Publisher: A Golden Book
Price: $4.99

The full Star Wars saga has been given the Little Golden Book treatment. The Attack of the Clones book not only features Senator Padmé Amidala on the cover, but in six of the illustrations inside the book. We start with the assassination attempt on the Coruscant landing platform. Next, we see Anakin Skywalker saving her from two kouhuns. The Senator travels home to Naboo and we see her with Anakin Skywalker in a meadow. We don’t see her on Tatooine, but when the story moves to Geonosis, we see her captured by Jango Fett and then in the Geonosian arena. Finally, we see  Padmé and Anakin marry on Naboo.

I purchased this book July 22, 2015, at Books-a-Million, six days before its official release.

Day 148: Padmé Amidala and Leia Organa puzzle

20150325_174631 20150325_174645 20150325_174659

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.
