I love Funko. There’s just no other way to put it. I love their fun sculpts, their approach to their licenses, their ocean of exclusives at every con, and their new Star Wars exclusive subscription box, Smuggler’s Bounty. When this new box was announced they revealed that the first box would have two exclusive figures from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Last week, the official Star Wars Twitter revealed the very first exclusive: a chrome Captain Phasma Pop! bobblehead.

I’d say the responses were fairly positive:

I’d say the Twitter fan community said everything that needs to be said. Everyone has been DYING for a true chrome Captain Phasma collectible since they first saw the character. Other toy manufacturers have failed miserably to date. No surprise–Funko understood what the fans really wanted and killed it. I can’t wait to have this figure in my hand.
What’s even crazier? This is the first of two exclusives released. Given how amazing this collectible is, imagine what they’re saving!
If you haven’t signed up yet, NOVEMBER 12TH is the deadline to sign up in order to get the first box with Chrome Captain Phasma. Don’t wait!
