The latest swag-filled pack from Funko’s Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty subscription service is dedicated to the film that many consider to be the pinnacle of the original Star Wars trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back.
A fitting follow-up to past Smuggler’s Bounty boxes that have celebrated more recent additions to Star Wars’ cinematic universe (including Rogue One and The Force Awakens), the Empire Strike Back box comes packed with exclusive items inspired by the venerable fifth act in the series. Standard items include a patch and pin that feature Yoda and Lando Calrissian, respectively. While there’s no tee shirt, collectors will find the debut pair of Pop! socks adorned with black and white Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Pop! heads.
Unsurprisingly, the attractions of the Smuggler’s Bounty Empire Strikes Back box are the collectibles. In addition to a 6.5-inch tall plush Wampa, fans are treated to the deluxe Han Solo with Tauntaun bobble-head. The roughly 7-inch tall piece features the (irremovable) winter-clad Captain atop his moribund snow lizard. The craveable exclusive is superbly crafted and comes with a removable base emblazoned with the Star Wars logo.
The Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty Empire Strikes Back box began shipping to collectors in January. To learn more about it or for more information about the subscription service’s prior releases, be sure to check out the official site. In addition to the latest information regarding the various membership options, pricing, and the sign-up process, prospective subscribers can find the inside scoop on what’s due to ship in the coming months, including the Star Wars Rebels box that’s set to arrive in March.
