Funko has revealed the next theme for their Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box: the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope! Their site is currently under construction but look for orders to open up for this box soon if you aren’t already a subscriber.
If you are looking for the full breakdown of the contents for the March Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko, head over to Vanessa Marshall’s (Hera Syndulla) social media channels (Twitter and Instagram) as she as posted an image showing it all.
Orders for the Star Wars Rebels Box closes on March 15.
UPDATE: Vanessa has deleted her social media posts regarding this item.
Yesterday, Dave Filoni took to social media to praise Funko’s selection of Star Wars Rebels POP! figures. In the group shot, you can see the March Smuggler’s Bounty Exclusive Maul as well as another figure rumored to be pack alongside him – can you spot it?
Funko has revealed their theme for the next Smuggler’s Bounty Subscription Box due in March — Star Wars Rebels! Along with that theme reveal, they have also unveiled the exclusive POP! figure inside as Maul from Season 2.
In an interesting move, Funko has officially revealed the POP!s packed in the Smuggler’s Bounty “Rogue One” box coming in November: Jyn Erso (Eadu “Mountain Gear”) and the Imperial Death Trooper Specialist. Since this is an official announcement, we are not considering this reveal a spoiler since these figures are also shown on the back of the POP!s packed in September’s Smuggler’s Bounty as well.
Head on over to StarWars.com for the official announcement as well as an brief QnA with Senior Product Designer, Reis O’Brien.
Despite the majority of retail outlets being devoid of new products on shelves, there are still a few surprises as online retailers are receiving a “new” 6″ version of Rey – which may be just different enough to make you mad/sad. Funko continue to promote like no other brand as teases for the next Smuggler’s Bounty box have sparked some discussion of potential for new characters. The biggest (and most spendy) news of last week was the announcement of an ultra-high end tier of prop replicas from Propshop – the manufacturer responsible for the very same screen used props in The Force Awakens. And finally, we close out Episode #99 with a few new acquisitions to tide us over until the next “must-have” item comes along.
