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.

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.
