Packaging - ***
The same size and style as the previous Queen Amidala Portrait Edition
packaging. You can see all sides of the doll without opening it up,
and the packaging is bright, sturdy and well designed.
Unfortunately, I know from opening these boxes up that the Queen will have
all kinds of odd ball twisties and cardboard inserts in her dress.
Sculpting - ***
Nicely done, although since the Queen had that 'porcelain doll' look to
begin with, it isn't hard to replicate. The paint work is extremely
good however, and the eyes are very detailed.
Articulation - *
The articulation on this body is very poor. Think of it as a poor
version of Barbie. Neck, shoulders, waist, hips and knees are it,
and the feet are too small and rubbery to hold her up without the included
Uniform - ****
The real reason you buy something like this. The detail, quality and
work put into these portrait edition outfits make it well worth the
fifteen bucks. This outfit is a particularly beautiful shade of uh,
purple I think (I'm color blind :). It isn't a perfect match for the
movie version, but it's damn close.
