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.
Again, this month's theme is BOUNTY HUNTERS, highlighting the species that made up a murderer's row of assassins in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. Check out our unboxing below and we'll meet you on the back end to share some thoughts:
Smuggler's Bounty delivers yet another solid box, repeating the success month after month and establishing it as an impressive value. I love the shirt, and the pin/patch is great. But is it time for a slight change? If BOUNTY HUNTERS and last month's CANTINA tell us anything, it's that Star Wars has its game down. Whether they stray from the plan any time soon will probably depend on whether it makes financial sense, proving our point last month that quality and consistency can go hand in hand, even if there's a tad 'yawn' factor seting in. Next up is the intriguing JABBA'S PALACE.

Before diving in, let's review the details:
