For this month of July, Funko celebrates the galaxy’s most “adorable” gangster in Smuggler Bounty’s Jabba’s Palace. Yoko and Cameron are back with an unboxing video that showcases some of the most memorable scenes at Jabba’s abode as seen in Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi. We mentioned last time that Funko has already come full circle with its tribute to the classic Star Wars trilogy starting with March’s Mos Eisley Cantina as seen in Episode IV: A New Hope and May’s Bounty Hunters which took hint from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
Let’s take a look at what’s inside this month’s Smuggler’s Bounty, but be warned, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD – Jabba has never been this so cute.
As you can see, the Jabba’s Palace Box is quite larger than the usual Smuggler’s Bounty offerings due to the bulky size of the Funko Pop! Home Jabba the Hutt Ceramic Mug. Here’s the complete list of the rest of the box’s contents.
- Boushh Leia patch
- Gamorrean Guard Pin
- Funko Plush Boba Fett (this is, by the way, the very first plush that Funko created under this line).
- Funko Pop! Home Jabba The Hutt Ceramic Mug
- Funko Pop Tops C3PO Snapback
- Funko Pop! R2-D2 (Jabba’s Skiff)Vinyl Figure 121
Up next is the Smuggler’s Bounty September Box where Funko pays tribute to the infamous Death Star. The September subscription box features the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. It is quite interesting to speculate on the reasons behind the selection. Could it be that Funko is setting up the stage for a much wider and grander fan reception considering that the month of December marks the theatrical release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? If so, then focusing on the Death Star theme is an excellent way to prep up fan interest.
This next box of Smuggler’s Bounty retails at a discounted price of $25 available for pre-order until September 15.
