  • Comments: The frigid ice world of Ilum was one of the most sacred locations of Jedi power in the Republic. Nearly every Jedi made a pilgrimage there at least once during their training to receive visions in the Force-rich caves and construct a first lightsaber. The Jedi temple there was subject to a vicious Separatist attack that might have dealt irreparable damage to the Jedi Order had it not been for the timely intervention of Padmé Amidala.

    R2-D2: Though foul weather and cold can sometimes endanger astromech droids, Artoo did not hesitate to rush to his mistress' side and warn her of an impending attack.

    C-3PO: This uptight protocol droid, sworn to serve and protect Senator Amidala, provided a much needed distraction.

    Padmé Amidala: Quick-thinking and brave, Padmé made a career out of snatching victory from the very jaws of defeat. On Ilum, her sharp eye and keen mind - along with a thermal detonator - saved her from an ambush by a squad of heavily armed chameleon droids.


    Chameleon Droids: So named because of their ability to seamlessly blend in with their surroundings, these modified probe droids launched devastating sabotage and sneak-attack missions across the galaxy. They destroyed the crystal caves on Ilum, and nearly dispatched two Jedi Knights in the process.

    Points of Interest:
  • R2-D2 is a repaint of 2004's SAGA R2-D2 (Jabba's Sail Barge) 04-45.
  • C-3PO is a repaint of 2005's ROTS C-3PO (Protocol Droid) III-18.
  • Padmé Amidala is an all-new figure. She was originally planned as a single-carded exclusive.
  • The Chameleon Droids are all-new. One has been cast in translucent plastic to simulate "stealth mode."
  • This battle pack is inspired from chapter 16 of the Clone Wars animated micro-series.
