    Transitional Wave Carded Pics

    Another website has carded pictures of these figures. It's in Japanese or Chinese so I have no idea what the forum is saying.

    I'm looking forward to the Queen & Rabe myself

    New picture of Rabe Handmaiden figure - what do you think?

    Padme Handmaiden was a constant fixture in the Top 10 of my Scene-by-Scene most-wanted figure never made before poll.

    Is this Rabe an acceptable substitute?

    Why Rabe instead of Padme (by name) anyway?

    The Rabe figure PICTURED HERE does look a little too yellow versus orange, but it's the face sculpt that we need a tighter angle on. Can this figure replace Padme? Under most circumstances with the face close enough: YES.

    I will still be out on the fence until I see a really good face close-up.

    And finally, with this figure made, do you think Hasbro will make a formal figure of Padme Handmaiden (likely using this sculpt) afterall, or will this be as close as we ever get?

    This is a "will they change a headsculpt and paint job" question?


    By the way, why is her gun carded out of her hands while she's on a "in the scene" OTC card?

    I realize they wanted to make her more "fun for kids" with a gun, and while the handmaidens probably wore blasters in their skirts , she'd probably look weird holding it in this scene on the Royal Starship. So should they have included a gun with her at all?

    Kids aren't going to buy this figure most likely. Maybe girls more than boys.

    Diorama builders like myself have use for (me?) 13 or more of these figures though, so they probably won't pegwarm. But not one of them will I be posing with a blaster. I don't care about that. It's all scene-filler to me, so I just need them. That's all.

    How I'd use 12 Rabe Handmaiden Figures:


    SCENE:

    2 Handmaidens - when Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan wipe out Security Droids "escorting them to camp 4" in Theed. The Jedi leap from a balcony over a nice column of Sio Bibble, Panaka, Black Travel Queen, Naboo RG's, Security Battle Droids, and I'll use 2 Handmaidens (as I'm keeping my group smaller, with 2 NRG's etc).

    2 Handmaidens - Hanger fight #1 as the Jedi "free those pilots" and "[take] them to Coruscant."

    2 Handmaidens - Royal Starship, while R2 and a bunch of droids save the ship

    1 Handmaiden - as Padme, having that "still miss your mother" moment in the cabin.

    1 Handmaiden - as Anakin comes to visit Padme, but encounters Queen Amidala in her red Senate gown.

    2 Handmaidens - my 2nd Royal Starship, as Queen Purple Return to Naboo Gown (hopefully they make) flies home, 2 handmaidens flank her as she "needs JarJar Binks' help."

    2 Handmaidens - Theed Celebration as the Queen (white gown) gives Boss Nass the Globe of Peace (like the keys to the city).

    Anyway, somewhere I forget myself, as I thought I needed 13 Handmaidens. Maybe it was 14 actually, 2 more for Queen Jamilla from AOTC. I don't recall.

    At least by those using the figure this way, I don't think she'll pegwarm - at least not in my area. I'll be spending nearly $60-70 on this figure alone.

    It's a shame that it isn't a better figure!

    It's interesting that Yarua is the only one with a Republic insignia on the card.

    I agree with the you on the "it should have been Padme" thing, but we'll see when a close up picture shows up. I'm just glad they got around to making a figure of her. How hard is it to think that collectors will buy multiples of these handmaidens and therefore Hasbro would make money. Sometimes I dont understand the way they work.

    I am going to buy at least 2 - 6 if I can find them. This figure will become the new Super Poseable Clone Trooper.

    Looks like a decent figure to me. I might have to buy two. I am not sure. One might do. Thanks for the link Tycho. Hopefully, we will start seeing her soon.

    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    Well I guess Amidala officially claimed Naboo, not the republic. I don't know, but maybe because of the celebration she is not shown with the "republic" insignia. I don't know.

    Sly Moore and Yarua are kind of lame. I will still get them though.

    The queen, Rabe, and Pablo Jill are awesome. I am looking forward to these.
