I’ve been getting the Smuggler’s Bounty Star Wars box since it came out – this is the third one with a different theme each time. The theme for this month was “Cantina.” I’m more of a casual Star Wars fan so I’ve been trying to decide whether to keep getting the box based on the theme. But I liked the idea of a Cantina box so I remained signed up for this one!
For those of you not familiar with Smuggler’s Bounty, 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 in each box so far there’s been at least one POP vinyl and a t-shirt.
If you wear a lot of t-shirts like this I think the box is a really good value. I’m picky about my geeky shirts though, and as I’m a casual fan there are some things I probably wouldn’t wear or would really get. This month’s shirt, however, I totally love! There were 4 designs and you got one of the 4. Each was a “wanted” shirt with a different character on it. I was so happy to get the Han Solo shirt!
This box had two POP vinyls in it. The first one was Obi-Wan Kenobi. I like this figure but wasn’t sure at first if it fit with the Cantina theme – but my husband pointed out that when he’s in the Cantina is when Obi-Wan does something “really awesome with a lightsaber,” so I’ll accept that. The other figure was “Red Snaggletooth.” I’m sorry hardcore Star Wars fans but I had no clue who/what this was. I tried googling and the best I can really come up with is that he was basically some random alien hanging out in the cantina. So, there you go. Obi-Wan got the honor of being unboxed and hanging out on my mantle with the other vinyls, but I think I’ll be trying to trade of sell old snaggletooth.
There was one other little item in this box as well – this adorable Chewbacca pen! He’s adorable and I love that this was included.
There was also the pin and patch that you always get to go along with the theme. I guess it’s a nice idea to have something like this for each box but I’m not sure what I will actually do with these patches and pins!
I very much enjoyed this month’s box, particularly the t-shirt and Obi-Wan. However, I did put my subscription on pause because I didn’t feel like the next theme was quite up my alley. It’s “Bounty Hunter,” which I know a lot of people will love, but it’s really not my thing (just never been a Boba Fett fan, sorry!). I’ll still be looking forward to seeing what everyone gets in that box, and seeing what the following theme is if I want to reactivate!
What do you think of this month’s box? What was your favorite item in it?
