Oh man...I definitely didn't want this box. "Droids?" I said, aghast. "Psh, Funko has already Popified the most memorable droids in the franchise. What could they POSSIBLY do to make an entire themed box of droids fun?"

But jeez...THIS looks fun. :bounce:

WOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!! :eek: I am in on a yearly sub anyway, but even if I wasn't that would be a must-have! Funko continues to deliver in a huge way on this sub!

Is it wrong of me to hope there is a chase version with the eyes dimmed? Because that would be awesome

Is there a canon-story behind this or is he supposed to be the unfinished version from ep 1?

I'm surprised by the choice for the droid. One that I never thought of. There are very few that would cause me to skip this box, but that is one of them. At least it means more money for SDCC.

Hmmm...I was patiently waiting for the reveal so I could cancel. Now I'm leaning toward getting it. Like others said I hope we get a shirt. I already have 3PO, R2 and BB-8 socks so while I'm a fan of getting socks, hopefully not this box.

Sure is interesting. Not sure if I love it, but I do agree it's unique and I appreciate the effort of something new.

Still fingers crossed for a shirt!

I've totally changed my mind and I actually LOVE the spoiled item. It took me a bit to think about it, but I am sold. I just love that it's creative and a bit outside the box, pun not intended!

I saw on another thread someone asking about a white Death Star droid that they thought they saw on the back of the SDCC Bodhi Rook box. Some of the speculation was that it might be a second Pop for this box. Figured I'd bring that discussion here!

I've never noticed or paid attention, but do SB exclusives ever appear on the backs of non SB Pop boxes?

Hmm, so there is a precedent. I'm passing on this box anyway, but I hope for the sake of subscribers that it's something more interesting than that.

Yes, although it doesn't appear that it says "Smuggler's Bounty exclusive" underneath the picture. Not that their numbering or box backs need to be that descriptive (or accurate)

This should probably be in a spoiler cut/tag! I would be upset to get spoiled over a month before the box is out. Lots of people come to this thread to speculate.

It's almost impossible to not get spoiled when they release it so far in advance, but I will say I'm happy they seem to have (at least for this box) made it so that you could be fully surprised, unlike the last few boxes where you would see ads for what the main figures were all over Facebook.
