Star Wars Action Figures
Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon these at the Dollar Tree!! $5 each!
You can see the review for Han Solo in a PREVIOUS POST.
Padmé first met Obi-Wan, shortly after the Invasion of Naboo started, when he and his mentor, Qui-Gon Jinn rescued her from the Trade Federation's battle droids, they do not have much interaction with each other. However, throughout the Clone Wars the two become close friends.
In Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Padmé's friendship with Obi-Wan became strained, after Anakin told her of Obi-Wan's manipulations to use him as a spy for his own purposes, she did not believe him when he told her of husband's dark deeds, mainly because she was in denial and partly because of what Anakin told her, to reassure herself that what he had said was not true, she traveled to Mustafar to ask Anakin herself; unknown to Padmé, Obi-Wan had stowed away on her Naboo star skiff, so he could find Vader and kill him.
Before Padmé's death, she told Obi-Wan that there was still good left in Anakin and one day he can be redeemed, but Obi-Wan didn't believe her. Padme's belief in her husband proved right when he sacrificed himself to save their son, Luke.
Thank you Curtis (Obi Wan Kenobi) for collaborating with me on this special project.

Princess Leia Hoth Photo Shoot
Hoth was a remote, icy planet that was the sixth planet in the star system of the same name, located in the Anoat sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. It was the homeworld to the primitive wampa species.
It notably hosted Echo Base during the Galactic Civil War, the temporary headquarters of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, until the Galactic Empire located them, initiating a major confrontation known as the Battle of Hoth. In the months following, scavengers established temporary base camps on the planet to scrap the AT-ATs destroyed.
In the months after the Battle of Endor, rumors that the New Republic intended to repurpose Hoth into a prison for those who remained loyal to the Empire, however the credibility of the rumors were dismissed as Chancellor Mon Mothma had been dedicated to a pretext of justice over punishment. Meanwhile the war returned to Hoth, where it became the site of another battle during the Iron Blockade.
Padme Amidala Photo Shoot
Padmé Amidala Naberrie Skywalker, simply known as Padmé Amidala, is a major character in the Star Wars universe, and a main character in the prequel trilogy. She first appeared on screen in the 1999 feature film, The Phantom Menace as the young Queen of the planet Naboo. Padmé is the secret wife of Anakin Skywalker, the mother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, and the grandmother of Ben Solo.
As Queen Amidala, Padmé met her future husband, Anakin. Ten years later, she became the Senator of Naboo, and was reacquainted with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin. She and Anakin attempted to maintain a platonic relationship, but they ultimately fell in love. Secretly marrying each other on Naboo, Padmé became secretly known as Padmé Skywalker, but the couple struggled as they had to keep it a secret and because of their duties to the Republic. At the war's end, Padmé became pregnant with Anakin's children. When her husband fell to the dark side and became Darth Sidious' new apprentice, Darth Vader, Padmé lost her will to live and died right after giving birth to her children, Luke and Leia.
