Smuggler’s Bounty is a bi-monthly Star Wars subscription box from Funko and the only official Star Wars subscription box (in the galaxy). Everything inside is 100% exclusive to the box and designed in collaboration with Funko!  Funko also produces the Marvel Collector Corps Box and the DC Comics box Legion of Collectors!smugglers-bounty-september-2016-unboxing

Thank you, Funko, for caring enough to keep your packaging clean by putting the label on the underside of the box. I love the unboxing experience to start out perfectly!

Behold! Your share of Smuggler’s Bounty! An exclusive patch & pin! The theme for September 2016 was DEATH STAR!

Everything inside the Smuggler’s Bounty Star Wars box for September!

The information card. I love this “boxing” experience card where they detail the creation process behind the items.

Vader Patch with Death Star: I love heroes but Darth was definitely needed on a patch!

FYI – the lettering on both these items is Aurebesh and it reads Smuggler’s Bounty.

Storm Trooper Pin: He may be white but there’s no balancing the dark side of the patch with this pin!

Vader vs. Kenobi Battle on the Death Star Shirt: In case you were wondering about the pull of the dark side of the force on Funko, Kenobi’s saber comes out on top!

FYI – the information card (and the Funko unboxing) show this as a Sith versus Jedi shirt. That clearly didn’t make it into the final because I’ve only seen Vader v. Kenobi! The design is slightly different and doesn’t say “Obi-One” like the one on the card. WHEW.

Death Star Luggage Tag: These are not the bags you are looking for.

A look at the back (See, not your bag!).

Grand Moff Tarkin POP! (est. $18 on PPG)

Darth Vader Bespin Pose POP! (est. $22 on PPG)smugglers-bounty-september-2016-11 Such a great villain and this box was so timely! Star Wars came on the other night and I could. Not. Stop. Myself. I had to watch it! (Star Wars as in IV). Peter Cushing was so great.  And those sunken cheeks?! I cannot.

Typical Tarkin with hands behind his back. smugglers-bounty-september-2016-8

And Darth in the Bespin duel!smugglers-bounty-september-2016-9

If you were confused or wondering what Bespin is, it’s the planet on which this occurred.

Luke… I am the most necessary Pop in your collection…smugglers-bounty-september-2016-10

He reminds me a bit of Lord Helmet!

This was a good solid box and Pop collectors will be thrilled with these molds! I definitely loved it, but I also like the non vinyl Funko items, but not everyone does! The only real quibble I have is that Bespin is not the Death Star. FYI – you can get Bespin Luke pre-duel and post-duel to match this figure.

Check out the spoilers for the November 2016 ROGUE ONE box! (Careful, actual Pop spoilers in those spoilers).
