The January Funko Smuggler's Bounty box has arrived! The theme this month is The Resistance, also from Star Wars The Force Awakens. The adorable BB8 is printed on the front of the box. The box was pretty hefty....
This is what you first see when you flip over the cover of the box:
All the Funko subscription boxes comes with an iron patch and a lapel pin. We got a very cute BB8 patch this month.
And also a resistance x-wing fighter pilot. I'm not sure if it is supposed to be Poe Dameron or not...if it is, it looks nothing like him! What do you guys think?
The t-shirt this month is another Funko Pop branded one and features all the good guys in the resistance. I read that the tees come in four different colours, all with the same design. I got charcoal grey. I switched the size to small this month since the last one I got in medium was HUGE. However, I'm hoping I can still fit this after it shrinks in the wash.
The Funko Pop included is a flocked Chewbacca! Funko gave a clue earlier on that something would be flocked and I think most people guessed it would be Chewie, since he's the only hairy character in the Resistance. They didn't use a printed Smuggler's Bounty Exclusive box this time and actually reused the same box that regular Chewbacca (that looks exactly the same except without the fuzz) comes in and stuck an exclusive sticker on instead.
Here's a look of Chewbacca outside of the box. You can take the stand off since it's only attached by two pegs.
The last item is a Pop Home item - a C-3PO mug. The handle is red which reflects the red arm that C-3PO had in the new movie. Very cool! I'm not that big a fan of the Pop mugs because they are really bulky and awkward to drink from.
Here's everything that came in the January 2016 Smuggler's Bounty box. Only five items this time. I think their debut box was a lot better!
The Smuggler's Bounty box is available in Canada and the US only and ships out every other month. The cost of the box is $25 usd + $14 shipping to Canada ($7 shipping in the US), with a guaranteed value of $50. The exchange rate has been dropping so it cost me over $56 this month. The March theme is Cantina - maybe we'll finally find out if Han shot first??
Check out the Funko Smuggler's Bounty if you want to subscribe to your own box! You have until March 15, 2016 to get your order in for the next one!
