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?

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!?

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!

What did you think of Smuggler’s Bounty Cantina box?

$50+ worth of exclusive Star Wars merchandise. Including but not limited to: apparel, accessories, toys and memorabilia.

I love this box but I still haven’t thought of what to do with the patches. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just opened my box and I got the blue snaggletooth!! I also got a freakin awesome tee with Han Solo as the wanted person! This has made my night, and I startled my husband with my whoop when I opened it 🙂 I can send a pic of both, just let me know where to send…

There is indeed a blue Snaggletooth! Rumor has it that the ratio is 1/5. Here’s some info about the blue Snaggletooth Pop and the history behind the vintage figures.

This is the first box i didn’t get, bedcause i was tired of it being ALL POP. then they have a sweet shirt that i’d actually wear. i probably would have got this if i’d known

now i’m tempted to get the next one

We got the Momaw Nadon t-shirt with jungle green lettering.

The Chewy pen is adorable!

Hey I copied some advice from the funk fanatic forum that might help with the bent light saber

“My POP has a bent sword, arm, foot, etc. (also works for Legacy figures with stuck joints)
For something thin like a sword, run it under a hair dryer until the vinyl is flexible. Hold it straight until it cools. For something thicker like a foot or arm, boiling it in water will make the vinyl soft enough to bend and reshape. Careful, it can get mighty hot!”

I’ve used the hair dryer trick with one of my pops that had a warped sword its pretty easy and quick

Eric

Thank so much for the advice!

I just realized I got the 1 in 5 variant of the the red striped tie-fighter in the first box. Loved the T-shirt variation I got in the second box. Should get this box tomorrow. Looks fun!

Oh wow, I didn’t realize they had different shirts! Mine was orange colors and had Ponda Baba on it! Super cool.

Eric

That’s awesome!
