There are two things I’m a sucker for: blind boxes and Star Wars. So when Funko announced that they were going to be releasing a blind box with exclusive Star Wars items, I basically threw money at my monitor. That was back in September.
Two months later, the box finally arrived. Now, let me tell you – I am thoroughly pleased with the box. This month’s theme was the first order, which is the Empire side of the new movie, so I instantly knew I would love it. I always had a soft spot for the Empire (sorry, Rebels!), so having an entire box dedicated to that made my heart squee.
Let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
Upon opening the box, you get a patch and a pin. I thought the presentation was awesome – usually you open the box and you see everything right there, but I felt like this gave it a bigger reveal. Plus, I love the designs of both and I will definitely rock the pin on the lanyard they also had in the box.
The one thing Funko is known for is their cute little figurines and I am in love with them. I have tons of them in various places throughout my apartment and at work. There are three available for you to get in the box and they are all exclusive to the box. You’re not finding any of these in a store. I already have a Captain Phasma one at work, but the chrome version looks so. much. cooler. And a little Tie Fighter Pilot in black and red? I love it! The other one you could get it a pilot in an all black suit, but I am happy with the one I got.
The last two items were a t-shirt (pictured) and a lanyard. I love getting lanyards, though I never use them all at once. I love, love, love getting t-shirts, especially cool ones. I like the design of this one – it’s cute, yet geeky. It’s right up my alley.
One thing that I love about this box is everything (and I mean everything) is 100% exclusive to the box. You’re not going to get these in a shop or anything – and to me it makes it worth the $25 price point. Not to mention, the two figurines alone would almost make up the cost of the box, plus you get a shirt and some sweet extras. Not bad, Funko!
And there you have it! The first Smuggler’s Bounty box by Funko. Did you pick up one? If so, were you happy with it? If you haven’t, pick up the next box (The Resistance out in January) here!
’til next time, xo!
