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.
After taking a post-Star Wars Day break from the show last week, Flyguy and I are back to discuss the latest in Star Wars collecting. A mysterious Black Series set of astromechs turned up in Hong Kong and we speculate on its destination. Funko dropped their new Smuggler’s Bounty this week and we break down its contents and criticisms. Plus, Rogue One had a series of “spoilers” drop this week in terms of characters names, aliens and vehicles. All of this and more PLUS our latest acquisitions on Episode #97 of The Realm Recap.
Last night, Funko streamed a live periscope video giving hints at the upcoming Cantina Smuggler’s Bounty Box coming in March. They stated (and reiterated via Twitter above) that the box will include two all new POP! figures* that will only be available in this box. If you wish to stay surprised, avoid watching the video.
Make sure your POP! collection is complete buy simply subscribing at SmugglersBounty.com by March 15.
*Han and Greedo shown above are not the exclusives issued in the box.
Just days after the official close of “The Resistance” Smuggler’s Bounty Box, they’ve started arriving on doorsteps. We won’t spoil the contents for those that wish to be surprised with the reveal.
