Well now, at least every Padme figure from TPM has finally been produced. It took 13 years.

So for the 3-D release of AOTC, which Padme(s) will it be? The "iconic" looks for her that were never produced yet (indicated by my numbers) are (1) Palpatine's office and (6) the yellow waterfalls dress - either which would look really good carded. The nightgown is not so far-fetched. They made her in a nightgown for ROTS with the Padme Evolutions 3-pack. However she was pregnant and did not include the outer robe (would have to be cloth), not to mention the kohoun creatures originally shipping with the 2002 Electronic R2-D2.
So there are 7 AOTC Padme figures left to be made (and how many freaking Arena figures of her do they need to do?!!! - an improved one from the action scene could be issued for Saga Legends, but not take up regular line space). I would say 2-3 of her next most iconic AOTC figures could be made for the Episode 2 three-D release. That would leave 4 left for future years, with the packing to leave for Coruscant eventually being a smart choice since she wore this look in the Gennedy animated series as well (a variation of it).
hair in buns from Coruscant Landing Platform (1)
nightgown - DONE 2009 Evolutions
black dress - "something's happening" (2)
gold dress with head wrap (3)
Ruminitions sequence (4)
blue dress with gloves - Anakin leaves for Mustafar (5)
Senate silver - Birth of the Empire (6)
meeting with Obi-Wan (7)
Mustafar - DONE 2005
Birth of the Twins - (8)
There are 9 ROTS Padme figures left to be made (and I'm sure Mustafar will be re-carded, but they could do that in Saga Legends). Her ROTS choices are far less colorful and appealing. The (6) Senate silver one is probably the next most important to make. I'm not sure if Hasbro will do "birth of the twins" - plus it's so plain and similar to her other white-clad figures or Leia's white dress. The funeral figure is grim and also questionable. I think the blue dress with sleeve gloves from when Anakin leaves for Mustafar, as well as her hair-in-the-Leia-buns-look from her first appearance are the next best choices after the Senate. Both the Senate and the blue dress figures would look very good carded. The gold dress figure "Hold me like you did by the lake in Naboo" might also look good, and similar to the Padme Refugee Freighter figure that's shipping currently.
I could eventually see most or all the AOTC Padme figures being made. I'd have my doubts about the ROTS ones.
Of everything shown on this page, there are only a hand full I'm interested in. Ratts Tyrelle is an absolute must for me.
I want one episode 1 figure packaged. It will either be a second Ratts Tyrell, Qui-gon, Darth Maul, Obi-wan or the Battle Droid, depending on wich one I am able to find in good condition first. Everything else? I'll probably pass on simply because I don't really have a place for it in my collection, and honestly, because I just didn't like this movie. I have a feeling this next year is going to be very light for me. But that's ok, as it gives me time to hit ebay to pick up the two or three figures I havn't been able to find over the last 10 years that I wanted.

Yesterday I had a great time at our Christmas party for the 69th Pennsylvania Infantry re-enactors! It felt like a great belated birthday party for me
K-Mart had their basic figures on sale for $4.99 (not the Black Series) but a closeout store called Ollie's, I had the most luck with over the past few
Are now available in specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals. The pens are skinny little things, reminding me of some skinny bobblehead pens that
Breezy with highs in the forties and lows in the upper twenties at night. Not as bad as Oklahoma where my son is going to school, though:
Ran a 5K race this morning in below freezing weather. At least it was sunny and not too windy. I ran faster than last year, but slower than two years
A bowl of Golden Grahams cereal to eat, water to drink.
I just learned that a friend of mine got to meet Mandela in person, when my friend was on his Peace Corps. time in South Africa.
Rainy, upper 40s/low 50s, breezy and cloudy. Just like late fall/early winter is supposed to be, right? Even in SoCal.
Sigh. Buckeyes, you had a great "regular" season. We'll see where they go for their bowl, but now it's not going to be in Pasadena.
