This Padm+¬ 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. Padm+¬'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 Padm+¬ 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.
