Last week the first ever box of Funko’s Smuggler’s Bounty, the Star Wars subscription box, started arriving at homes. The first box featured a Star Wars: The Force Awakens theme, complete with two exclusive Pop! figures: a chrome Captain Phasma and a First Order TIE Fighter Pilot. If you heard the latest episode of “Now, This is Podcasting!” (and if you didn’t…WHY NOT???), you heard Jason do a live unboxing during the show. He was one of the lucky few to receive the exclusive chase variant First Order Special Forces TIE Pilot.
The Special Forces TIE Pilot chase variant had 1:5 odds. Those odds were actually kind of surprising to me and now I’m even more bummed that I didn’t get it. The box also contained one of four First Order-themed shirts, which were evenly distributed. None are more rare than the others. I’m told that there won’t necessarily be a chase variant in future themed boxes.
Check out my first ever unboxing in the video below and don’t forget to sign up for the next Smuggler’s Bounty featuring the Resistance! The deadline to sign up is January 15th!
Spoilers! An inside source told me that one of the exclusive items in the next box will be “flocked.” What are your guesses?
