Funko Smuggler's Bounty - Resistance

Last week, both Loot Crate and Smuggler's Bounty arrived on the same day! I already posted the Loot Crate, so here's the latest Smuggler's Bounty box from Funko.


This is only the second Smuggler's Bounty but it seems like they're going to keep changing up the character on the box to fit with the theme.


Here are a BB-8 patch and Poe pin. Poe pin! C'mon everyone, say it with me a few times. Poe pin, Poe pin, Poe pin. One of these days I should probably translate the Aurebesh writing on these. As big of a Star Wars geek that I am, I can't read this.


I'm still not sold on these Pop! mugs. They look fun but I don't think I'd ever actually use it. I do like the fact that they put a red handle on it to match 3P0's red arm. I'm not a big fan of the red arm but I guess it shows how strapped for resources the Resistance is. I also didn't think the costume looked great in the new movie, it looked more like a plastic molded Halloween costume than metal.


You're guaranteed at least one exclusive Pop vinyl in each Bounty box. After getting Han last time, it's cool to get Chewie. But what makes him exclusive? He's flocked!


If you're wondering what flocked means, here's a close up. He's kind of fuzzy.


Best bros foreva!


Finally, here is an exclusive Pop shirt. Just like last time, it's a great design that I'd love to wear but will never be able to because it's not made for someone that grew up with the original movies and doesn't wear skinny jeans.

This box was okay for me. I love Chewie but don't really care about the mug or shirt (because I can't wear it). I'll probably cancel my subscription at some point and only get the ones where the theme sounds like it will be good. The next one is slated to be Cantina themed so I'm still along for the ride. Really hoping for a band member Pop!

  1. I debated signing up for this. I now regret not doing it.

    1. Haha, I'm almost the opposite. I debate cancelling and then don't.

  2. How about cutting out the image on the shirt and sewing it to a shirt that fits? Might look cool as a reverse appliqué.

    1. Interesting idea! Might be too crafty for the likes of me though lol

    2. You need to cultivate some crafty friends then! ;-)

  3. So how much smaller was the T-shirt than what you needed it to be? I'm typically XXL but can occasionally get away with XL. Would Funko's XXL still work or should I bump up to XXXL?

    1. It's not much smaller, if you can get away with an XL, I'd stick with XXL. You can always change it between deliveries.
