#StarWarsSmugglersBounty Unboxing: December 2015

The first Star Wars/Funko box arrives with geeky goodness.

Review by Matt Cummings

Subscription boxes have gone from newest fad to what-have-you-done-for-me-lately. Its meteoric rise has seen truly amazing boxes (last month's Loot Crate) and frankly awful ones, sometimes by the same company (see our ripping of the September Loot Crate). At the same time, a franchise like Star Wars has chosen to remain on the sidelines. For a franchise with such an amazing fan base, one would have thought the people at Lucasfilm would have deep roots in sub boxes and might moved forward a lot sooner. Regardless of the reasons why, it's time to celebrate their arrival with a great first submission from Smuggler's Bounty.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
  • The cost for a Month to Month is $25 (plus S/H), or $150 (plus S/H) for a one-year subscription.
  • You get one box every other month, with SB promising $50 in value and no fluff.
  • If you choose the Smuggler membership (yearly), you are promised an additional gift on your anniversary. Guess which one we chose.

  • Sporting a theme of The First Order, this first box features baddies like Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren. As you'll soon see, Smuggler's did the right thing to wait, letting fans decide what worked in these boxes and then basically grafted those expectations into this box. A gander provides all the proof we need. We'll meet you on the back end to share some thoughts:

    Quality First Attempt
    In many ways, Smuggler's Bounty bypasses all the problems which earlier Marvel Collector Corps, Geek Fuel, and Loot Crate experienced, both with shipping problems and the quality of certain items. As you can see, each and every one of SB's products is worth their weight, with the Funko figures going for three times their worth on the secondary markets. I also like the no-fluff promise, which means we only get high quality goods.

    Who knows if we'll be saying this next time, when SB presents The Resistance, but for this round, score one for the bad guys! If you missed out on this box, The Resistance is now available for pre-order.

    #TombRaider Official Trailer

    Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



    Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

    COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

    Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



    Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
