Has anyone else noticed that the Saga "Collection" scheme has apparently changed? It USED to be that the main SW characters comprised "Collection 1" and the secondary and tertiary characters comprised "Collection 2".

Now, it appears that Padme Amidala is in the new "Collection 2", as is Yoda. It makes sense, sorta, that Yoda would find his way there, as he comes with a nameless Padawan. But, Padme by herself surely is not a secondary character.

Here's the link and the text:

Collection 1 = More for Kids, Action Features and Main Charecters

Collection 2 = More for Collectors, No Action Features and Secondary Charecters

It's not the first time that Padme has shown up in collection 2. Frankly she belongs in Collection 2. Not many young boys are all that intrested in female figures. Plus she has no action features, so doesn't fit into Collection 1 for either reason. Once they start doing gowns, she will likely always be Collection 2. :)
