View Full Version : Padme pilot variation

01-29-2003, 04:06 PM
What was the variation with the Padme pilot? I was fortunate enough to find one with the sticker and without the sticker when it first came out. I noticed there was no major discussion on the boards about this figure (or maybe I missed it. If I did, forgive me.)

So what's the hubbub, bub?

Under the sticker, Hasbro has this ludicrous reasoning as to why Padme is in that costume and who is aboard the decoy ship, I believe because Lucas had this in the film until after Hasbro made the figure and then Lucas changed the plot - he did that several times with Ep 2.

Here's Thrawn's news post about it: http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=ssnews2.setup&category=starwars&topic=31&show_article=484

and Hasbro's correction: http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=ssnews2.setup&category=starwars&topic=31&show_article=570

Here's a thread I started about this variation, someone moved it though: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14039
