Funko STAR WARS Smugglers Bounty Box!


First there was Collector Corps and now there is the Smugglers Bounty! Funko and Star Wars teamed up to create a bi-monthly box based off Star Wars and you know damn well I had to join.

I got the very first box in November and I had plans to do an unboxing video but then it became December and now it's January. I scrapped that idea and decided to just make a blog post to show what I got.


Just like the Collector Corps, the Smugglers Bounty came with a patch and a pin. I got a First Order Tie Fighter patch and a Kylo Ren pin. I still have no real idea what to do with all these pins and patches. I was going to throw the Marvel ones on a jean vest but now that I will have Star Wars ones, I may scrap that idea.

Or I may do just do a Star Wars patch vest and sell off my Marvel ones.


I got a Kylo Ren POP shirt! I heard there were different options for the shirts and I ended up Kylo Ren. I haven't been a huge fan of the Collector Corps shirts, I have only liked 1 so far but I love them as POP characters so I'm going to be keeping this one.

And we got a Star Wars The Force Awakens lanyard because I really need more lanyards. Almost every sub box throws them in and I have a huge collection. My work badge has been carrying Aperture Labs and a Halo one just so I can use them. I may get rid of those and use this one instead. It has an adorable First Order Stormtrooper on it.

But really, I'm getting sick of the amount of lanyards I get in my sub boxes.



CAPTAIN PHASMA CHROME POP!!! I knew we were getting her in the box and she is awesome in person. I never got around to buying the non chrome release because I knew she was going to be in the box. I have decided that if there is a variant release of the character, I'm going to get those instead. My Force Awakens POP figures are just that, all variants. But yes, Captain Phasma is my favorite of everything in here.

First Order Tie Fighter Pilot POP!! She was the surprise POP figure that no one knew about.  I guess there were two versions, one with the red stripes which I got and one without the stripes. The one with the stripes is pretty cool. Sadly, the piece that connects to her mask broke (poppped?) off. Since it took me almost two months to open it, I doubt Funko will exchange it and if their CS is anything like Collector Corps, I may not get a reply anytime soon. I'll just glue it or something.

Overall, I really loved the first Smugglers Bounty box. My second one is actually in trasnit somewhere between UPS and USPS. I'm excited for the second one and have been trying to avoid spoilers.

Did you go for the Smugglers Bounty Box? What are your thoughts on it? Which Tie Fighter did you get? Which shirt did you end up with?

EDIT: I forgot about FUNKO FRIDAY being today and the theme for this week is Show & Tell!!

The Smugglers Bounty box was something I was completed excited for because it took 2 of my greatest loves : Star Wars and POPs and turned it into a bi-monthly box. This was the very first box and I love it to bits. I actually just found out that the Tie Fighter one I got is considered the chase figure so wow! I have never been that lucky!

My second box has finally arrived - missing between the UPS and USPS hand off - and I can't wait to crack that one open!!

Star Wars x Irregular Choice Han & Leia Flats!


In case you didn't know, Irregular Choice teamed up with Star Wars to create a collection of limited edition shoes. I got my first look during Star Wars celebration and I fell in love.

There was a pair of Han &  Leia flats and I wanted them. I love a lot of characters in Star Wars but Han & Leia are my favorite. I love them as solo (yes, I know) characters and of course together. The flats were floral, had glitter, and a photo of them on the shoes. They were like if my grandmother took the ugly floral fabric from her couch and made me shoes. They were amazing. They were taking pre orders at Celebration but I had already spent so much money I just couldn't do it... that and they were very expensive. Like $150+ up expensive. I figured if by the time they were out and I had them money, maybe I will do it.

They got released finally and they sold out quick. I never got a chance to stare at them online to hum and hmm over it. Every single style they created, sold out. They had some with lightsaber heels, R2-D2 heels, flats with C-3PO or Darth Vader. All of them gone. I got wind that one site got some in stock. After whining about them (it's what I do best) and finding some discount codes, my mother helped me get them.

Merry Christmas to me!!


They arrived a week before Christmas and they were just as amazing as I remembered them. Look at the box for them!! The tissue paper!! Oh man, they went all out and props to Fun.com for the care they took in boxing the box up and shipping them to me.

Okay enough about the box. Let's check out the shoes!



Oh they are so pretty! Check out the embroidery on the shows. They went with Leia's classic outfit and they used a photo of her with the blaster. Haha.. I like her ANH outfit but my favorite outfit of hers will always be Bespin/Cloud City.



Here's a close up shot of the shoes. The photos are digitally printed but they feel really smooth and match the fabric of the shoe. The flowers on the front are embroidered and you get four of them on each side and guys, there's a tiny heart. I love them. On the outer heel of each shoe the Star Wars logo is embroidered in black and gold. The heel and sole edging are in gold and black glitter.

So cute.

But that's not all either. They even decorate the bottom the shoes!



I have yet to wear them because I don't want to ruin the bottom!! I have heard that there are clear protectors for Irregular Choice shoes made because they also have awesome designs on the bottom. Once I track some down, I will get back to everyone about how comfortable they are. I think the art they used was from the DVD covers.

Oh my god, I just love and adore these shoes. A big thank you and many hugs to my mother for them. I was pushing sales on the apps but she gave me half to buy them. I am so glad more items are being released for the female fans and I can't wait for more Star Wars shoes. Shoes are my second weakness. Purses is the first.

Best Christmas Ever!

Have you guys seen the rest of the collection? Did you buy any? Which ones are your favorite?
