"There are things I cannot do. I cannot watch while people suffer, I cannot sit when something must be done, I cannot judge those who are different. There are things I cannot do. Run, hide, ignore. There are things I cannot do. But there are certainly things I WILL do." - Queen Amidala, TPM Tone Poem
It's no secret that fangirls (and even fanboys) in the Star Wars community are always screaming for more Padmé/Queen Amidala merchandise. Why isn't she a character that's recognized more often? It beats me. She has always been one of my favorite characters because I greatly admire her strong will and compassion towards others. Not to mention the fact that she has the greatest wardrobe out of all of the characters in Star Wars. Yep, I said it.
My buddies, Alex and Steve, over at Black Series Rebels are releasing this Queen Amidala action pin entitled "The Monarch" this Saturday, June 30th at 9am PT. In case you haven't heard of them, each month they release two Star Wars pins which help them keep their amazing Star Wars show on YouTube alive. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to their channel today! You can start off by watching the episode I was a guest on, because why not?
Keep in mind their pin drops sell out extremely fast! So clear your schedules and set those alarms because if you're a fan of this little lady or the Star Wars Prequels in general, you don't want to miss out. Their new pins (Yoda is also part of this weekend's release) will be available to purchase here.
This is honestly one of my favorites of their pin releases so far! As always, their pins are of such high quality and have two posts on the backside for extra security. I love the simplistic design based off of Queen Amidala's intricate Thrown Room Gown seen in The Phantom Menace and I'm so happy to have this in my Star Wars collection!
