Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

It's something to do with Naboo mythology. For practical purposes, the constantly-switching energy barriers prevent radiation and plasma leakage into surrounding areas of the generator complex while still allowing for maintainance crews to enter and exit without shutting the entire field down to do so.

But the different curtains of energy are supposed to hearken back to ancient Naboo myths about the different doors or barriers that lay between their ancestors and the source of creation/paradise/heaven...the different barriers a Naboo native would have to go through to reach that mythic Eden or paradise, if you will.
