Each bi-monthly delivery of Smuggler’s Bounty has a Star Wars related theme. Past themes include Jabba’s Palace and Bounty Hunters – this month’s theme was Droids!

Please Note: Our shipment was missing the information card for the second delivery in a row – which is a bummer because it’s my favorite information insert in the biz!

Themed Patch + Pin – Value $10?

As always, you’ll be greeted by a patch and pin on the inner lid. This month features a C-3PO/R2-D2 combo patch, along with a Battle Droid pin.

R2-D2 and BB-8 shirt – Value $15?

This is my favorite shirt from Smuggler’s Bounty! It’s a peek into the critical scene at the end of Episode 7 where BB-8 and R2-D2 come together to finish the map and locate Luke.

C-3PO Unfinished POP – Value $20-25?

This is definitely one of the cooler POPs in my collection – and while Smuggler’s Bounty has featured incredible POP Rides, this might be the best individual POP from the subscription.

The unfinished C-3PO has wires and circuit boards all over!

This one is sure to be a rare find in the future.

R5-D4 POP – Value $20-25?

This is definitely a cool idea for a POP. R5-D4 was ALMOST Luke’s right-hand droid – instead, a malfunction forced the Jawa crew to take him back in exchange for R2-D2.

I think they did a great job with the paint. It has that Tatooine patina and sand.

This time – you get to keep your very own R5-D4!

Verdict: I’ve always said that I can’t complain with a double POP month – this month feels like a big winner with 2 amazing POPs, and a shirt I think that everyone will enjoy. I do like the patch and pin as well, but I never have much use for them – it’ll go onto our pin board!

  1. I didn’t have the info card either. Second time in a row.

  2. That is a fantastic shirt and amazing POP of C-3PO. Can this box still be purchased?

    • If you subscribe to the next box you can go back and get this month’s box while supplies last. Members can get the last two months boxes.

  3. I really miss them adding a cup or hat. 2 pops a t shirt, pin and patch seems to be such a basic box.

  4. That Pop is so creative! Love it!

  5. I think this is one of their best boxes yet!! The shirt is a great design, and the C-3P0 looks amazing! I love how they r5-D4 look like an old, dusty Droid!

    • The C-3P0 is definitely cool, but the R5-D4 is a bit mundane – it’s too similar to all the R2D2 and Chopper Pops. Would have rather had a more unique-looking droid like a Battle Droid or AP-5

  6. At least they are attempting to make up for May’s sorry excuse for a box. I love that shirt, and I noticed on the Luke with Landspeeder POP that they did a great job getting all the Tatooine dust on there.

    • Kimberly, what are you talking about?! May’s box was the best one yet!
