Star Wars Smugglers Bounty Subscription Box Review – March 2016
Star Wars Smugglers Bounty is the second box 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 D.C. Comics for the brand new Legion of Collectors!
This is the third shipment of the bi-monthly box!
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).
Each one of the shipments come with a patch and a pin placed in the inner lid. This month’s theme was ‘Cantina’, and we received a Nalan Cheel pin and a Greedo patch!
Here’s a closer look at the patch and pin, along with our first item:
Chewbacca Pen – Value $5?
This month’s small item is a Chewbacca POP topped pen. It’s hard to get excited about a pen, but I actually have a need for one, so why not have a POP topped one?
Here’s a look at the Lil’ Chewbacca on top!
Muftak Wanted Shirt – Value $10?
I’m loving this month’s shirt! Typically, the Funko box shirts have featured the Funko POP version of a character, so I was surprised that this one did not. I’m loving this one, it’s a definite keeper.
Thanks to Chris for sharing her shirt variation:
Red Snaggletooth POP – Value $20 on POP Price Guide
This month featured two new POPs! The first of which is Snaggletooth. I got the Red Snaggletooth from the Cantina scene. It’s also a very rare and coveted figure amongst Star Wars collectors, so I thought it was a cool idea to make it a POP! Word has it that there is a chase variant Blue Snaggletooth in 1 of 5 boxes this month, which is a super-rare figure from the past with roots in the Holiday Special! Did any readers get the Blue chase variant!?
Here’s a close up of the POP.
Ben Kenobi POP – Value $25 on POP Price Guide
I was like a little child when I saw Ben Kenobi was one of the POPs!
His lightsaber is a bit bent, but it’s malleable – so I’m trying to fix it!
Here’s a closer look at the details. I love it!
Verdict: Another great box from Smuggler’s Bounty! I was curious as to the direction they’d go with ‘Cantina’ because it’s wide open for characters. Ben was a great choice, and Snaggletooth was another fun choice – both are completely new POP molds. I’m already excited for the ‘Bounty Hunters’ box in May!
