    Angry Late question about Padme...

    Just how do I keep her from moving that darned arm every time??? I just don't like the way she looks.

    I actually bouth her and Obi Wan with that droid because they were the only figures i found here, other than Deluxe Dooku, Mace Windu and Obi-Wan... i didn't like any of them.

    First of all, your in the wrong section, this belongs in the Saga figure section. Don't worry though, a mod will move it when they get a chance.

    Secondly, unlike the Zam and Han figures with similar action features, Padme's arm does not lock down. But don't worry, Hasbro has stated that there will be a new version of Padme in this same outfit next year. She won't have an action feature, and will be heavily articulated. The outfit may not be torn though, and she will likely come with her cape.

    Actually, there is a way to lock down the arm, but it's not entirely intentional on Hasbro's part. Since the gearing can slip and ratchet if forced to allow for better quality, you simply turn the figure so the arm falls down, then you hold the arm down and turn the body back to its original position until it clicks. At this point, you can leave it as it is or turn the waist even further back until the arm pops back into the original up position then simply ratchet the waist back to "normal".

    Really? Is that confirmed, Jar Jar? That's a figure I'd love to have!

    Has anyone tried this? I did, and it worked great.. the arm stays down just fine. Except now I can't get it back to it's original position.. any ideas on how I can get it back to the way it was?

    No, I wrote that completely without trying it in the hopes that it might break all your figures, AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Actually, if you "turn the waist even further back... the arm pops back into the original up position then (you) simply ratchet the waist back to "normal"." That works for mine just fine, that's why I put it in there. The other option is to hold the arm UP and turn the waist forward instead of back, you'll feel it grab and then pop and it'll be back in it's original UP position.


    As for the standing issue, mine stands just fine with the arm up or down, I doubled up the chain on the left arm to act as a counterbalance.

    Well I think I did something wrong, because the first time I tried it.. it worked perfectly! The arm stayed locked down, and when I turned the waist the arm sprang back into place.

    Then, I tried it again.. and now the arm seems to be permanently limp I turned the waist in all sorts of directions with no luck. Do I have to hold the arm down (or up) as I turn the waist?
