Butler it was the collected, out of print, Star Wars newspaper strip collection.

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 4, 2012

You may (or may have not) seen this new 2012 Queen Amidala at retail, but she's pretty neat.  The sculpt is good, the deco could be a smidgen better, and overall it's a big improvement over 1999.  Read on!
