Funko Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty Subscription Box - Cantina [March 2016 Unboxing]

I cancelled my subscription to Smuggler's Bounty but when Funko released a hint about what was in the box, I had to resubscribe! There was a bit of trouble of re-subscribing due to a payment error on their website, but after some back and forth with customer service, I was good to go!

My box arrived quite early this month, with it arrive last week. The theme this month was Cantina and the box came with an adorable picture of Greedo.

Like all Funko subscription boxes, a pin and patch are included. The pin features a cantina band member and the patch has Greedo.

Next there was a Chewbacca Pop Pen. Funko recently started releasing these pens in stores, mostly Marvel characters. I believe they run around $6-8 in stores in Canada.

There were four designs for the t-shirts this month. All of them are "Wanted" shirts. I was hoping for Han Solo, but I got Muftak insead. I was hoping for another Funko Pop shirt but I guess they don't do that every time!

Finally, there were two Funko Pops included this month. The clue that they gave was that both were new molds and one was going to be Ben Kenobi. There is a Obi-Wan Kenobi pop already with his hood up but the Ben has his hood off and is holding a light saber.

The next is a Red Snaggletooth - one of the random aliens found in the Cantina scene. There was also a 1 in 5 chance of receiving the chase Blue Snaggletooth! The Blue Snaggletooth is in reference to the action figure that Kenner made in 1978 - they only had a black and white photo of the character as reference but the alien in the movie wore red and not blue.

I wasn't a huge fan of the items this month but you can't say the value isn't there!

The Smuggler's Bounty box is available in Canada and the US only and ships out every other month. The cost of the box is $25 usd + $14 shipping to Canada ($7 shipping in the US), with a guaranteed value of $50. The May theme is Bounty Hunter.
