Earlier this week I received my very first Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box! This is a Star Wars themed box that comes every other month. Everything in it is exclusive to this box and it is done in collaboration with Funko, so the odds are good that you’ll be receiving at least one POP vinyl in each box. The first box had the theme “The Force Awakens” for the new movie.
I’ve been trying to stay pretty spoiler-free, so getting this box before the movie came out was a little bit confusing to me, haha. I didn’t really know who the characters are yet and the significance of it.
The first thing you see when opening the box is a patch and a pin for the month’s theme. This is done by the same company who does the Marvel subscription box so I’m guessing you will get this in every box.
There was a t-shirt in this box with I think Kylo Ren on it (and I don’t know who he is yet!). Apparently there were 4 different designs, but this is the one I got. Pretty cool looking.
There was also a lanyard with the Force Awakens logo and a stormtrooper. This is cute and the only thing I really recognize and will use.
Then there were two POP vinyl figures. I don’t collect these so I’m not sure how I feel about getting two of them. I’m sure that it’s great for people that do collect them though! One of the figures is Captain Phasma in a special chrome form, and a tie-fighter pilot.
Overall I think the Smuggler’s Bounty Star Wars box definitely has a good value. Really big Star Wars fans and people who collect POP figures and also like Star Wars will be big fans of this box. As for me personally, I feel like it is a good deal for the price though the items themselves aren’t necessarily what I would prefer. Though I have some friends who like Star Wars so I might be able to give it to them!
That being said, I’m going to get it for at least one more month – January’s box has BB-8 on the front and I think he’s adorable, so I’m hopeful that they’ll be using characters that appeal more to me next time around!
Is this a box you would be interested in trying?
