Padm+¬ Amidala a.k.a. Queen Amidala,Theed Invasion was released in 2001 as part of the Power Of The Jedi toy line. The figure was quite detailed for its time and despite its age still holds up with modern released figures in 2009. The paint application on the face is flawless, and the head sculpt looks very nice. It's not exactly the way we see it in the movie, but it's very close. Because of the hard-plastic, non-removable dress, the figure can stand very securely without the need of a stand, but you won't be able to make Padm+¬ sit like you saw her in the movie. Both legs are molded individually, but that doesn't make much of a difference since you can't move them. Overall it's a decent figure, and as of 2009, this is the only representation of this main character from these specific scenes from The Phantom Menace.
Queen Amidala is a skilled leader who is committed to maintaining her people's way of life. She is a peaceful leader who always looks for the solution that requires the least amount of military action. Although she has been trained most of her life to enter into a leadership role - the Trade Federation blockade and certain invasion will put her skills to the ultimate test.
