Hoth Han Solo with Tauntaun – Value $36 on POP Price Guide
This was THE big item of the month – and maybe of the subscription so far!
Hano Solo on his Tauntaun is the Smuggler’s Bounty’s best POP yet – similar to the Hulkbuster for Collector’s Corps!
Like all Star Wars POP figures – they are removable from their base and have bobbleheads. Han’s head bobbles while the Tauntaun does not.
This is the kind of POP I always hope to get in these exclusive boxes! More of this, please!
Wampa Plush – Value $10-15?
Since the POP was a large amount of the value, the other two items were smaller this month. This is a super-soft Wampa plush.
The Wampa has beads in his lower-half to make him sit upright!
POP Socks – Value $10?
The last item is a brand new line from Funko – POP Socks.
The sock design shows off the POP version of Darth Vadar and a Stormtrooper.
The socks are definitely on the thinner side – closer to a dress sock than and everyday sock. I’m also not sure how well these will fit all subscribers – mine are a bit tight, so I can see some people not being able to wear them.
I love getting socks in subscription boxes – so this is really a combination of two things that I’m looking for in boxes: socks and POPs!
Verdict: We all came here for the Tauntaun POP and it did not disappoint in the slightest. The POP alone is worth more than the box – so I’m fine with the remaining items being smaller. I’m also never unhappy about receiving socks and am wearing them right now, so they are also a win for me this month- and Buckles has claimed the Wampa – so everyone wins.
