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 Boxthe DC Comics box Legion of Collectors, and Disney Treasures.

The theme for this month was ENDOR!

Endor (also known as the Forest Moon of Endor or the Sanctuary Moon) was a small forested moon that orbited the Outer Rim planet of the same name and was the homeworld of the sentient Ewok and  Yuzzum species.

Like the January box, this one has no card.

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

Ewok Patch. The Ewoks are the natives of the forest moon of Endor. They are sentient humanoids that are omnivorous and their average height is about one meter. They are also covered in mostly brown and black fur from head to toe, just like Wicket, who’s featured on this patch!

Socks. This pair of comfy socks features the look of the Sanctuary Moon, the Endor.

I like the combination of black and blue on this one, totally a classic mix to portray the cool look of the Ewoks’ habitat.

Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike. We got another POP! figure mounted on a vehicle.

The back of the box features other POPs you can get in this series.

The Scout Trooper, also known as a biker scout, is a specially trained stormtrooper of the Imperial Army’s Stormtrooper Corps.

The details on both the figure and the vehicle are impressive!

Speeder bikes, also known as jumpspeeders, were open-air repulsorlift vehicles that emphasized speed and maneuverability over stability. The Jedi used the Undicur-class jumpspeeder, which proved popular with civilians. Another civilian speeder bike was the Joben T-85 speeder bike, used by the Jedi Kanan Jarrus.

The Scout troopers have almost the same costume as the stormtroopers, except for the pants. The stormtroopers  don an all-white costume, while the scouts have black pants.

The scout looks ready to attack with his speeder bike!

Equipped with light armor for greater mobility and optics in their helmets that allowed faster reaction times when piloting speeder bikes…

…Scout troopers were expert marksmen, trained in reconnaissance and infiltration as well as additional independence and adaptability than most Imperial troops.

Ewok Mini Plus in Collectible Tin. The tin is so cute and I feel like I am getting a great surprise!

The tin pictures the Endor Moon.

There’s even an Ewok who is guarding the community.

The Ewoks live on treehouses, just like what is designed on this cool, reusable tin!

It’s a cute Wicket keychain!

The keychain comes with a plastic gate latch you can easily attach to your bag.

Ok, so the theme of the box was Endor, not Ewok, and I was thrilled with the Wicket items. But as much as anyone loves Wicket (we all do, nub nub!), I was hoping for more variety and I was happy that I picked up the Walmart Ewok 3-pack a few months back (about the same price on Amazon if you want to pick it up). I really thought some Ewok Pop! variations were going to be in this box (really, can I get a Kneesa to go with my Wicket now?!). Can you tell I’m a child of the 80s and grew up on Ewoks cartoons?!  That being said, the Stormtrooper Funko Ride figure was really great and I’m not disappointed in that – I just want more Ewoks!

Now for the note about shipping. I’ve mentioned a few times already that I’ve been having issues with my Smuggler’s Bounty account. They didn’t properly manage my account transition when they ended annual accounts, charged my annual subscription twice, refunded me once, and thought that was cool and stopped sending me boxes even though I had an active annual subscription. I was actually told that I wouldn’t be getting this box at all, despite paying twice for it, and over the past quarter have sent no less than 60 messages to Funko trying to work out the subscription issues. I ended up buying an extra, after they released them all and made everyone buy them separately after touting that the box was completely sold out. They’re basically the hottest mess in terms of subscription management. While we love the items in the boxes, we can see why Funko is discontinuing their subscription products.

What do you think about the March box?
