This Padmé Amidala figure was among the first Episode 1 action figures released back on May 3rd, 1999. The figure has 6 swivel joints and came with 2 blasters. Padmé's hard plastic skirt is not removable and prevents the figure from being able to sit down (i.e. to fit in a cockpit). The head sculpt turned out pretty good and it does look like Natalie Portman in the movie. Both blasters fit nicely into Queen Amidala's hands and the figure has a firm stand and no balancing problems. The paint application is done nicely as well. Overall it's a pretty good figure, which represents Queen Amidala as seen in The Phantom Menace quite well. Sure, this Padmé figure is about 10 years old now, but it still holds up very nicely with modern released figures.
The young and newly elected ruler of Naboo, Queen Amidala desperately attempts to save her planet from the greedy Trade Federation with help from Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
