Funko Smuggler’s Bounty Box Review — Cloud City
By Guest Reviewer Cameron Ramos
I know that I’m not the only Star Wars fan that loves to collect figures and merchandise to represent my passion for the galaxy far, far away. Luckily for fans like me, Funko and Amazon have partnered up to continue Funko’s Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box which sends Star Wars fans exclusive collectables every other month! If you’re a fan of Funko Pops! and other exclusive merchandise, this is the subscription box for you. For $30 you are guaranteed 3-6 collectibles in each package, including an exclusive Smuggler’s Bounty Funko Pop! that you can only get in the box. This month’s box theme was Cloud City, and in my opinion it was the best Smuggler’s Bounty box yet because I am a huge fan of the exclusive Pop! that came with it. Let’s take a look at what was inside!
Lando Calrissian Keychain
It wouldn’t be a Cloud City themed box without a collectible representing the Baron Administrator himself, Lando Calrissian. Typically, many of the items in the Smuggler’s Bounty boxes are designed in Funko’s unique artistic way. What is cool about the Lando keychain that came in this box however, is that instead of it looking like a Funko Pop! head, it is designed to look just like a picture of Billy Dee Williams. This is sure to look great on a key ring or backpack!
Chewbacca Carrying C-3PO Mystery Mini
Poor Threepio! Everyone remembers when our favorite golden protocol droid was gunned down on Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back. Luckily our heroic wookiee Chewbacca found C-3PO right before he was about to be incinerated, and he was nice enough to carry him around on his back before reassembling him. This Mystery Mini of Chewie and C-3PO is really cool and unique. It’s the first time that I have seen two characters represented in one Mystery Mini. I was hoping that this moment was going to be included in some way in this box, and I am so happy to add this fun collectible to my Star Wars Mystery Mini collection!
Boba Gets His Bounty Movie Moment Pop!
And this is why Star Wars and Funko collectors should subscribe to Smuggler’s Bounty! Cool exclusives like the Boba Fett and Han Solo frozen in carbonite Movie Moment Pop! is what makes these boxes so worthwhile. I’d argue that this scene in The Empire Strikes Back is one of the most iconic scenes in all of Star Wars, and to have it represented not only in Pop! form, but also as a Funko Movie Moment display piece, is so great! When I subscribed to the Smuggler’s Bounty box on Amazon, I did so hoping that this moment from the film would be represented in some way, but I never imagined it would be as cool as this Movie Moment Pop! The level of detail that Funko put into these figures is incredible. The base looks just like the floor from the movie, and there is a lot of detail in the figure of Han frozen in the carbonite casing. What I like about this Movie Moment Pop!, too, is that it comes with a really cool background that can be used when displaying the figure on a desk or book shelf. The background looks just like the one in the movie, and if you look closely you’ll see a Pop! version of Darth Vader’s shadow at the top of the platform in the backdrop. This is one of those collector’s items that might go down as one of my favorites ever and if I didn’t subscribe to Smuggler’s Bounty, I would have missed out on it!
So what do you think? Did you subscribe to Smuggler’s Bounty this month and are you as happy as I am with what was inside? Does this make you want to subscribe to the December Smuggler’s Bounty box? Drop a comment bellow! I can’t wait to see what your thoughts are. Happy collecting, and may the Force be with you!
