Star Wars Smugglers Bounty Subscription Box Review – November 2015
Star Wars Smugglers Bounty is the latest in the line of Funko 100% exclusive subscription boxes! Funko has teamed up with Marvel for Collectors Corps, Marvel/Star Wars for Smugglers Bounty, and next year, DC for a DC box!
This is the very first shipment of Smugglers Bounty!
The Subscription Box: Star Wars Smugglers Bounty
The Price: $25 a box plus $6.95 shipping (boxes ship every other month)
The Products: Each box includes exclusive collectible product created by Marvel/Star Wars & Funko including apparel, collectibles and accessories worth $50.
Ships to: US and Worldwide (For international subscribers: Items over $20 in value will have duties/taxes that will range from 12% – 18% depending on the Province. There may also be a collection fee from the posted country).
Like Collectors Corps, each box comes with a patch and a pin placed in the inner lid. Here we get a First Order Tie Fighter patch and and pin featuring Kylo Ren.
Funko Captain Phasma Shirt – Value $10?
Here is this month’s shirt. It follows the Funko line of t-shirts which feature a Funko POP’d character.
The Force Awakens Lanyard – Value $5?
The small item this month is a lanyard. I wasn’t too excited for this, but now I’m realizing it can probably be used for anyone with collector tickets or anything like that when going to the first screenings of The Force Awakens.
here’s a close up of the graphic on the lanyard.
Captain Phasma POP (Chrome) – Value $25+ on Amazon
This chrome POP is AWESOME! The chrome is, in fact, the part that is exclusive to the Smugglers Bounty version. I’m late to the Star Wars Funko collection, and I’m now realizing just how many there are to collect!
Here’s a shot out of the box.
Tie Fighter Pilot POP – Value $20+ on Amazon
This Jet Black Tie Fight POP is also exclusive to Smuggler Bounty. The difference from other Tie Fighter Pilot POPs is that this is the First Order Tie Fighter model, so it’s a different costume/mask. I love how sleek it looks.
Here’s a shot out of its box.
Verdict: I’m happy with the first shipment from Smugglers Bounty, because I’m really in it for the POPs, and they deliver here. The only thing I was disappointed with was the lanyard, but its such a small item that I’m ok with that being the disappointment. I’m really excited to see where this subscription goes – The next theme is ‘The Resistance’! It also gets me excited for their eventual DC box!
