Bandai has released more pictures of their fantastic looking Padme Amidala (Attack Of The Clones) action figure from the S.H. Figuarts assortment. The figure will be released in June 2017 exclusively in Japan. Padme stands about 5.5" tall and she will come with two different heads, two exchangable hands and a Battle Droid blaster. The figure goes up for pre-order on January 20th on the official Bandai webshop for $54.63 and is limited to 24 pieces per person. Fans in the United States will need to order this figure through the secondary market, because Bandai doesn't have the license to sell Star Wars action figures in the United States.
