This spring/summer saw the start of the Marvel Collector Corp. subscription box service and now this November will see the start of Star Wars: Smuggler’s Bounty! Funko has seen continual success with all of their endeavors this year and will undoubtedly have a hit with their Star Wars themed subscription box.
While the subscription box service took off with Loot Crate, the idea of it seems to have been perfected with Funko’s partnership with Marvel and Disney. I am an active member with the Marvel Collector Corp. and am seriously considering subscribing to Smuggler’s Bounty, and not just because it has a great title. If you’ve yet to read about this new subscription box, here are the details.
Starting in November, for just $25 every other month, subscribers will receive their Smuggler’s Bounty. The box will be packed full of exclusive Star Wars themed collectibles by Funko. The November box will contain two exclusive Pop! vinyls from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as the expected other surprises perfect for any Star Wars fan. Similar to the Marvel Collector Corp, boxes will ship every two months, and there are two member levels available – a monthly plan (Pirate), and an annual plan (Boss) featuring a mystery reward upon completing one year in the program.
If you’re a devoted Star Wars fan then this is the premiere subscription service for you. From the first image released of Funko’s Star Wars: Smuggler’s Bounty, we can see that The Force Awakens villain, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) appears in Pop! vinyl form. It will be interesting to see what other collectibles fans will get outside of the two announced Pop! vinyl figures. Please note that as of this writing, specifics on who the Pop! vinyl figures will be are unknown. With this stated, I would not be surprised if this information leaks out in some way before the November release.
