Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty Subscription Box Review – Jabba’s Palace
Star Wars Smugglers Bounty is a 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 Legion of Collectors!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
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).
Deliveries now come with insert cards – which I think is great, and displays more attention to their subscription boxes from Funko. I hope it bodes well for the future of these boxes since they can improve in a lot of areas.
This month’s patch and pin feature a Gamorrean and the Bounty Hunter Boushh (Spoiler Alert: it’s actually Leia!).
C3PO POP Top – Value $15?
There is no shirt this month – and I’m ok with that. Instead of the shirt, our wearable is this C3PO hat. Funko has featured two new lines in this month’s Smuggler’s Bounty, and this hat is one of them.
The hat says ‘Programmed For Etiquette”. I’m probably more likely to sport a POP hat than a POP shirt – so I think this is a good exchange for me, personally.
Jabba Mug – Value $10-15?
The Jabba item in the Jabba’s Palace box was a POP mug. I can’t lie, when they promote that Jabba’s Palace is the “largest Smuggler’s Bounty box size to-date” you expect a big Jabba POP – so this was a major letdown for me. I like the mug, but most subscribers are in this subscription for the POPs.
R2-D2 Jabba’s Skiff POP – Value $25?
Thankfully – there is a POP this month. And, it’s awesome. This is definitely one of the cooler POPs from this subscription, in my opinion. A dusty, dirty, R2-D2 that you can just envision by Jabba’s side!
Boba Fett Plush – Value $10?
The second new line they featured is this plush. I pretty much never like receiving a plush in any box – and I’m not sure how these really differ from the existing Mopeez line – they’re incredibly similar. This item is a bust for me this month.
Verdict: They set my expectations pretty high with all of the gigantic box callouts, only to let me down. The R2-D2 POP is really great, which was enough to bring this up to a ‘meh’. I surprisingly like the hat much more than I thought I would, so that made the box a bit better for me as well. While the Jabba mug is something I’ll use – you expect a big presence from Jabba in a Jabba’s Palace box! Maybe I’m greedy, but I’d love it if they just guaranteed 2 POPs, or a super-size POP/POP ride each month. I get that they want to test new lines of products (which they also did in the latest Legion of Collectors box) but sometimes it’s best to stick to what you do best. POPs.
