Did you guys notice that her holster is removable?

nope, but i noticed she's way too tall, her chest is too big, and the pose sucks.

I don't hate it, but I don't like it. It's kind of weird. Nowhere near as bad as the Anakin, but not great. Looked better from far away while I was madly throwing stuff into the cart my girlfriend was holding. Oh well. I am sure we will get 20 of them.

I kind of agree. I wasn't planning to get Padme at all, but once I saw her this morning she didn't look as bad as the pictures. Really the only thing I still *hate* about the figure is her V-hips. I despise any figure with those joints, but otherwise I kind of like her.

let's hope that the pilot padme is better.

Leather clad Padme' appears to have articulated knees! That's always a plus!

Is Padmé Arena able to keep her right armpit covered or is she stuck in that "Feel lucky today bastard"- pose?

:confused:

"Removable holster"? Heck, this thing flew off my figure when I pulled her from the bubble tray; and once I found it again, I wasn't even sure what it was! For a minute, I thought it was an animal bone she was carrying around.


Besides her frontal attributes, this figure's behind is also sculpted in a "saucy" way (aka Sir Mix-a-Lot wouldn't miss her ;) ), I think Hasbro wanted this to be a "fanboy favorite", as if all us heterosexual fanboys are just buying figures waiting for the "hot chick" Star Wars figures. There are like 4 female humanoid characters in all of SW, I doubt most SW fanboys are fans because of the ladies.

Upon closer inspection of the"holster" it appears to resemble some sort of animal tooth.

Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong...

Eh. The whole hype with Portman is just like the hype with Maul and him being such an awesome villian just because he had horns and a double bladed lightsaber only with Portman it's not horns and a double bladed lightsaber that's drawing the hype. :rolleyes:

Anyways, I think the really only good thing in the package was a more sturdy blaster since the Battle Droid's is pure rubber (well Padme's blaster looks more durable) and the pillar is kinda cool.
