Review: Mezco One:12 Collective Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Collectable Figure

There are a lot of companies out there that produce high-end collectable figures in various scales, the most popular being 1:6 scale, or around 12 Inches.  But these figures are a far cry from the Holiday edition Barbies and the Bob Hope G.I. Joes you might has see at a Toys’R’Us over the years.  Companies like Dragon, Sideshow and Hoy Toys produced beautifully designed figures with cloth costumes and detail accessories that capture the look and feel of the comic or movie character they are producing.  But all this attention to detail is costly and the lower production runs means these figures cost around $200 (Cdn) or more and can only be found at comic/pop culture stores or online.

Mezco Toys, trying to produce an alternative at a lower cost yet with the same quality, has come up with the One:12 Collective.  It is a line of 1:12 scale (around six inches) of figures based on various pop culture properties, from comic books to TV and film.  Like their larger 1:6 counterparts, the sculpt are highly detailed, capturing the look and feel of the character it is based on.  They also have cloth outfits, tailored for the character so that it looks straight from the source material.  Starting off in 2016, they have produced over a dozen of different characters, but they have all been larger, male characters.  Now Mezco Toys has produced the first female figure in the One:12 Collective line; Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.

The One:12 Collective Suicide Squad: Haley Quinn figure is based on the character in 2016’s Suicide Squad movie, as played by Margot Robbie.  How you feel about that depends on your own taste, but I liked the look.  The figures comes in a box with a red slip case featuring the characters name, the movie logo and the One:12 collective logo.  On the back we see the contents of the box and various action shots of the figure  The sides of the cover has the “Q” of the Suicide Squad logo (and “Q” for “Quinn”).

IMG_1844

Removing the sleeve and you get the first look at the figure.  Harley is displayed with her alternate heads, hands and weapons. In behind you can see the base of the stand with the Suicide Squad logo on it. When you open that up, you will find the arm for the stand and the jacket that goes with the figure.

IMG_1845

With the figure in hand, see seem so… small.  Having never had a One:12 Collective figure before, I have no way to compare her with the male figures in this line.  I am a bit.. obsessed with figures I display together be in (or at least close) to scale.  The figure is about 6 inches, which in the 1:12 scale is 6 feet scaled.  Too tall to have be next to a 6 inch Batman (who would be 6’3″ or so).  Margot Robbie is about 5’5″ in real life.  Add that she was wearing 4-inch heels on those Adidas pumps in her Harley outfit, it would bring her to 5’9″.  She’d pair well with figures in the 7 inch scale, I guess, like older DC Direct ones or Mattel’s  DC Multiverse Dark Knight Returns figures.

IMG_1846

The figure is great though  The outfit looks great and close to the movie, but without the wear and tear shown in the movie (no rips).  The shorts fit well and she even has actual fishnet stockings, which are sewn around the legs.  There is a noticeable seam in the back, but it doesn’t distract from the overall aesthetic of the figure.  They even got her tattoos on her, from her face, arm and legs to the ones on her stomach and lower back (if you move up her shirt.)  There is even a red bra painted on that shows through the shirt, like in the movie.  As for the likeness, well, I spend hours on the internet, looking up facts about Ms. Robbie (including the size of the heels on those Adidas shoes) and  painstakingly going over pictures after picture of her in costume and I can say it is a very good likeness.  The butt could be better, but it is a awesome likeness for the scale.

IMG_1847

As for her accessories, she comes with three different heads;  a closed mouth smiling, and open mouth laughing and a blowing bubblegum head.  She has five interchangeable hands; three right hands (trigger finger, gripping hand for the bat and an open hand) and two left (open and gripping.).  She comes with her baseball bat from the movie as well as a gun with the shoulder harness holster.  She also comes with two wrist bands, one saying “Yes” and the other “Sir,” and two spiked bracelet, which can fall off easy and are a bit small.  Lastly there is the coat, with looks like it did in the movie, from the colour scheme to the having “Property of the Joker” on the back.  It fits quite well, though be sure to remove the bracelets and wrist band before you put it on her.

The jacket fits well enough.

 

IMG_1863
The design is authentic to the movie.

 

As it comes with a stand and a posing post, this figue is mean to be displayed and posed.  She has good articulation, with the head being on a post with a ball joint.  She can look up, down and side to side with ease.  The heads are easy to swap and I never felt like I was going to break it when I swapped heads.  The arms are also ball-jointed at the shoulder and you get a good range of motion even with the cloths goods in the way.  The elbow is, sadly, single jointed and hidden by the shirt and you can rotate the arm at the elbow.  The hands attach at the wrist, also ball jointed and, though the post is small, they are easy to exchange and stay on well.  There is a diaphragm joint beneath the breast and articulation at the waist, though she can’t turn side to side much.  The waist joint is the most noticeable, with her low riding hot pants.  She is articulated where the legs and crotch meet, with each leg being able to move forward a fair bit but no much back.  Her legs can spread a part a fair bit, but not to a split.  With the fishnets being two pieces around each leg, it does not hinder the movement.  The knees are single jointed and can bend to almost a 90 degree angle and the ankles joints allow side to side pivot, left and right turning but little forward and back movement.

IMG_1853
Use the stand and posing arm for dynamic displays

 

This figure is definitely a high quality figure.  Compared to the DC Multiverse Suicide Squad Harley Quinn, this figure stand out in quality and attention to detail.  The faces, body and outfit really capture the likeness of Margot Robbie playing Harley in that movie.  But like the 1:6 Scale figures, the quality comes at a higher price point.  This figure retails for about $89.00 US (I paid $108 Canadian from a Canadian distributer) so it is a pretty big purchase for a 1:6 scale figure (mass market 6 inch figure retail for about $30 CDN)  But if you have already bought a One:12 Collective figure, you know the quality that is put in it.  If you haven’t and you pick up this figure, you’ll know soon enough.

IMG_1854
Heads and hands swap easily.

Comparing the Mezco Harley Quinn (center) with the Mattel versions.  I think a One:12 version of the one in the dress would be sweet.

 

The One:12 Collective Suicide Squad Harley Quinn figure is out now.  You can check your local comic, toy and hobby shop for availability, or you can order online from various resellers.  I got mine from Canuckables.ca, a Canadian source for toys and collectables.  This is not a plug;  I just saying where I bought it from.  For more information on this line and upcoming and current figures, you could check out www.mezcotoys.com.

Subscription Box Review- DC Legion of Collectors: Teen Titans

It’s my first post of 2018, and we are starting off with the latest DC Legion of Collectors  box by Funko.  This month’s theme is the Teen Titans, based off of the “New” Teen Titans comics that ran from 1980 to 1996.  Will this box rate a “Boo Yah!” from Cyborg?  Let’s take a look!

For those unfamiliar with the Teen Titan’s history, here is a little back story.  Originally conceived as a team made up of the sidekicks of various Justice League members, the Teen Titans featured Robin, Kid Flash, Speedy (Green Arrow’s sidekick), Aqualad and Wonder Girl. The group had two series in the 60’s and 70’s (plus a cartoon that omitted Robin) and was mildly successful.  But in the 70’s, the trend was to age up the sidekicks:  Robin and Kid Flash went to college, Speedy became a heroin junkie.  Aqualad… got wet, and Wonder Girl went to comic book limbo as she never really fit into the Wonder Woman comics at the time.

Then, in 1980, the series was revived.  Guided by the creative Team of Marv Wolfman and George Perez, the series reunited Robin, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash along with Beast Boy (then called Changeling) from Doom Patrol.  It also introduced three new characters:  Cyborg, Starfire and Raven, all who are would be familiar to those who watch the recent cartoon.  The new series was called “The New Teen Titans” because, well, it was new at the time, though most of the characters were pushing 20, so, not teens.  The series saw many of the other Titans returned (Speedy got off the smack, Aqualad was…still wet) and show the evolution of two of its characters: Robin, looking to get out of Batman’s shadow, adopted the name Nightwing, and Kid Flash took over as the Flash after Barry Allen died (he got better 25+ years later), leaving the team and eventually joining the Justice League.  The comic was a hit and even had a crossover with Marvel’s #1 team at the time, the X-Men.

IMG_1806

But enough history, let’s look at the box.  The lid features the silhouette of Nightwing in his 1980’s costume.  I had always called it his disco costume, not only because of the large collar, but also because he was written by Marv Wolfman, which made me think of the 70’s DJ, Wolfman Jack (side note, I have see pictures of Marv and he is not nearly as hairy as my 10 year old self though he’d be.).  Beside, he was the writer; George Perez probably had more influence in the design.

IMG_1807

The lining has artwork featuring the Titan members most would be familiar with (i.e. from the cartoon)  The art seems to resemble George Perez’s work.  I could be wrong.

IMG_1808

First out of the box is the T-Shirt.  There are two variants this month and both feature Beast Boy.  Once has him changing from a tiger, the other (i.e. this one) has him changing from a eagle.  I personally like the Changeling name better than Beast Boy, especially since he was more mature over the course of  the New Teen Titans series.

IMG_1811

There is no flap any more and we only get a patch this time.  Cyborg is featured on the patch in his 80’s design.  It is good that this character has evolved over the years and now is part of the Justice League franchise.

IMG_1813

We get a comic this time, too.  It is a copy of The New Teen Titans #1 from 1980.  IT features a new cover by artist Phil Jimenez, the original story from 1980 and a couple of Who’s Who in the DC Universe pages from 1986 featuring the team and the Titans Tower.  The cover is really nice and the story, well old, still holds up.

IMG_1809

Next we get…figures!  I really like the Funko figures we have been getting and I have said that I wanted more.  There are four different figures available and you get two of them per box:  Cyborg and Starfire are featured here, but Raven and (disco) Nightwing are the other two.  Funko said there may be a way to order the figures you are missing, and I hope these turn up at comic shops and EB Games along with the other original members.

IMG_1815

Finally, we get to the Pop!  It is Nightwing, in all his pop-collared glory!  In the comics, Dick Grayson, looking to distance himself from Batman (and wear big boy pants), decided to give up the Robin identity (which Bruce fills really quick!) and takes the name Nightwing, based on a hero he met/heard about (depending on the story) who protect the streets of the bottle City of Kandor..  Dick used that name exclusively since them, only dropping it to take over as Batman for a few months in the early 90’s and from 2009-2011 (Note.  Kandor did have a modern Nightwing for a while when Power Girl went there for a bit.)

IMG_1816

And that is it for the box.  I really enjoyed this one as we got a lot of cool stuff and figures!  The figures have been improving over the years with these ones slightly larger than the Suicide Squad ones.  They also have ball-jointed arms (Starfire even has a ball-jointed head!)  The Golden-Age Superman figure from last April also had ball-jointed arms, but I never noticed until I compared him to Starfire! And we get a Pop of Nightwing! This is a good buy for both old and new Teen Titans fans.

The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships in March 2018 and will feature the Green Lantern Corps.  I am hoping for a Ch’p pop, Funko If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ .  The deadline is 1 March 2018.  By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)

Subscription Box Review- DC Legion of Collectors: Justice League (Movie)

It is November, so it is time for the last Funko/DC Legion of Collector’s subscription box of the year.  To probably no one’s surprise, the current theme is the Justice League movie, coming to theatres 17 Nov 17.  What’s in the box?  How many Pops do we get?  Can Jason Momoa make Aquaman seem cool?  We will answer two of those three questions in the review.

IMG_1793.JPG

The box design remains the same.  This time, we get the shadow of Aquaman, as portrayed by Jason Momoa. He is holding his signature weapon, a…Quindent?  It is not a trident, because there is too many prongs.  Maybe it is a giant shrimp fork?  An Atlantean pitch fork for kelp farming?  Hopefully the movie cleans that up.

IMG_1795

The inside liner features the symbols of the six heroes from the movie..  We also get the Justice League movie logo.

IMG_1797

No patch again, but we do get this pin of the Batman.  He is wearing goggles, which makes me think of Nite Owl from Zack Snyder’s other superhero film, Watchmen.  Snazzy pin, though.

IMG_1798

Next it this T-shirt.  This black shirt features a straight up illustration of the heroes in the Justice League movie.  The art reflects their look in the movie, but depicts the characters in a way more akin to the comic book, not going for the actor’s likeness.

IMG_1799

Next, we get stationary, featuring the Flash (think about it!)  These sticky notes feature a running Popified Flash.  All of the pages are the same, so no flip book action, which would have been cool, but more expensive to produce.

IMG_1800

Next we get… a straw!  A subliminal message to all the Zack Snyder haters to “suck it”?  No.  It goes with this!

IMG_1801

It is a Wonder Woman tumbler with a lid.  It is made of a very thick plastic and seems durable.  It is a nice change from the coffee mugs.  I am going to have to fight the wife over this one.

IMG_1803

Now, we get to the Pops.  Yes, we get two of them: Steppenwolf and Aquaman.  Both of these are exclusive to the Legion of Collectors.  First is Steppenwolf.  A general of Darkseid’s army and a vanguard for his invasion forces, he will take you on a magic carpet ride of destruction.  I’m sure he was born to be wild.  Next we get Aquaman..  He comes with a stand to show him bursting out of the water..  He is shirtless and we get to see his tattoos.

IMG_1805

 

IMG_1804

So that’s the box.  This is a really solid one and I like all the items included.  The pop vinyls are probably the highlight for me (as they should be) with the tumbler and T-shirt close behind.  I hope the movie will be as good or better.  I plan to do a review of it next weekend, providing I go see it.

The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships in January 2018 and will feature the (mostly) Teen Titans.  It looks to be based of the comics, not the crappy Teen Titans GO! cartoon.  You cancelled Young Justice of that, WB?   If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ .  The deadline is 1 January 2018.  By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)

Subscription Box Review- DC Legion of Collectors: DC’s Most Wanted

Funko has shipped out the latest DC Legion of Collectors subscription box.  This time the theme is DC’s Most Wanted, again focusing on the villains.  Will it be any good?  How many Batman villains take up spots in the box?  Let us see!

The box has the Scarecrow on it.  That’s one.  Nothing out of the ordinary here.

The inside liner features an assortment of villains (8 in total).  Half of them are (surprise) Batman villains. though I think Catwoman should be considered an anti-hero at this point.  The other half are from the rest of the universe, with two Superman villains (Luthor and Bizzaro), Black Manta and Deadshot, who, wait –  started off as a Batman villain!  I’ll count that as two.

There is not flap for the patch and pin this time.  In fact, there is no pin!  The patch does feature Black Manta, an Aquaman villain that deserves some recognition.

Next in the box is a Funko Pop luggage tag… of the Joker.  That’s three!  I know that the Batman Villain box was ten months ago, but there was a Batman themed box last time.  Could you please spread the love, Funko?  A Captain Cold or Kalibak luggage tag would be nice.

Here’s something new!  We get this set of almost chibi versions of DC baddies.  We get  (clockwise from the top left) Harley Quinn, Black Manta, Deathstroke and Sinestro.  I won’t even ding the Batman count because three out of the four didn’t originate in the Batman comics.  Besides, this year is Harley’s 25th birthday so she gets a pass.

Next, we get the t-shirt.  The design shows off six of DC’s major villains each who oppose a major hero.  We got Luthor (Superman), Ares (Wonder Woman), Sinestro (Green Lantern), Black Manta (Aquaman), Joker (Batman) and Captain Cold (the Flash).  All six sure live up to the Most Wanted tagline so I like it.  I won’t ding the count, though I think Circe or Cheetah would be better for a Wonder Woman villain.  Ares was in the recent WW movie though. so I see why he is there.

Finally we get to the Pops.  We get two awesome-looking Pops;  Lex Luthor in his Battle Suit and the man who broke the Bat (that’s 4!), Bane.  Both look great, with Luthor’s battle suit nicely detailed and Bane having his Venom tubes running to the back of his head.  I love the more dynamic poses the Pops have been in recently.

Overall, I liked this box.  The stickers were nice in lieu of the pins, because I really have no use for them (or the patches, for that matter) but the stickers I could put on my laptop.  My one gripe is the abundance of Batman villains so soon after a Batman box.  Batman is popular.  I am sure Batman-related Pops would do well at retail.  This box should have the lesser-known villains: Mirror Master, Fatality, Doctor Psycho, Lord Manga Kahn… okay, maybe not the last one.  This box does have a pretty awesome shirt and some great Pops, though.

The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships November and will be based on the upcoming Justice League movie.  Will it feature something Batman related?  Probably.  I am hoping for a movie Parademon Pop.  Make it happen, Funko!  If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ .  The deadline is 1 November 2017.  By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)

Subscription Box Review- DC Legion of Collectors: Batman: the Animated Series

I just got the latest DC Legion of Collectors subscription box from Funko today.  This month’s theme is Batman: the Animated Series, the modern classic that kicked off a wave of superhero cartoons that prized good storytelling over selling toys.   I have been looking forward to this box so lets takae a look.

IMG_1746The box features the silhouette of the Penguin (from his 1997 redesign when the series was revived on the WB) done in blue.  The box is rather large this month.  Other than that, it is just a box.

IMG_1747

Opening the lid, you can see the box’s interior is decorated with art done in the DC Animated Universe style, which Batman: The Animated Series started.

On the top flap are the pin and patch, as always.  The patch features the Joker (in his original design for the series).  As you can see, it is a nice looking patch.  The pin features Catwoman (again in her original design) on top of a diamond-shaped background.

IMG_1750

Under the flap we have the comic book.  It is a reprint of The Batman Adventures #1, which tells stories in the style and set in the BTAS universe.  This was originally published in 1992 and I remember actually having this issue.  It is a self contained story written by Kelley Puckett with art by Ty Templeton and Rick Burchett.

IMG_1752

The T-Shirt this time features a Pop version of the Batman the Animated Series logo.  Done in black, white and red, it looks awesome on the black t-shirt.  I think I have a new favourite shirt.

IMG_1754

Next is the Pop!  We get a Mr Freeze pop vinyl, which was the most requested pop for the BTAS pop line.  Mr Freeze’s colours are cartoon accurate and even has a dome over his head.  The body is well done, if in the standard pop stance, but there is some nice detail with his gun, and the tank on his back.  This definitely the Pop to have for any Batman fan.

IMG_1758

Finally, we get to… the Dorbz Ridez?.  We get a Dorbz Batman along with a little Batmobile for him to ride in.  The Batman can be taken out of the Batmobile easily enough, but the tires to not roll.   I think it is great.  I like Dorbz well enough, it is just I am running out of room with my Pops and this…this isn’t helping.  Oh, the trial of being a collector…

IMG_1759
He looks too happy. Alfred must’ve made cookies.

That is all for this box.  There was a lot of awesome stuff this month.  My favourite has to be the T-shirt, though.  The next DC Legion of Collectors box ships late August and will feature DC’s Most Wanted, centering on the villains.  If you wish to get the next box, you can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ .  The deadline is 1 August 2017.  By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)

Subscription Box Review- DC Legion of Collectors: Wonder Woman (Movie)- May 2017

Funko’s DC Legion of Collectors have returned once again with a new box in its subscription.  This time, to probably no one’s surprise, the theme is the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.  Will this box be worthy of the Amazon warrior princess?  Read this review and wonder no more…

First we start with the box.  The overall design of the Legion of Collectors’ boxes is still intact, with the featured character’s silhouette on the top, this time being WW.  It is a different outline of Wonder Woman than the Women of DC Box from September of last year, with the tiara looking like the DC Cinematic Universe version.  The inside of the box features pictures of Wonder Woman in various action poses.  They seem to be original drawings (or from design art from the film) and I don’t recognized the art style.

Next, we get to the standard patch and pin.  Of course, both are centered on Wonder Woman this month.  The patch centers around the tiara and eyes of Wondy.  It looks nice and you can tell it’s the movie WW because in the comics, her eyes are blue.  The pin is of the movie logo, with “Legion of Collectors” on the bottom.

IMG_1702

Next we get…socks?  Yes, forgoing a T-shirt or hat, we get these Funko Wonder Woman socks.  They are dark blue with red heels and a picture of a POP Wonder Woman on each sock.  There are WW logos and stars done in a lighter blue.  They are a bit tight on me (I am size 10.5 US in shoes).  I don’t know why they didn’t go with a shirt (I’d unironically rock a cool POP WW shirt.)  Just socks seems like a let down.

IMG_1705

IMG_1706

Next we get another Funko product, a Pint-Sized Heroes figure.  These look like tiny versions of their Dorbz figures.  This one comes in a blind bag, but there is only one of Wonder Woman.  It’s cute, but could be a choking hazard to young kids or dogs.

IMG_1708

Finally, we get to the Pops!  We get two this time:  A new Wonder Woman Pop and one of Doctor Poison.  The Wondy one is new, with a more dynamic pose than the one in the Batman V Superman line.  She is getting ready to use her magic lasso with a determined (for a Pop!) look on her face.  Doctor Poison, a character that can be traced to the early stories in the 1940’s, is in a stand-at-ease type pose, similar to the Grand Moff Tarkin Pop for the Smuggler’s Bounty Death Star box, but with her hands in front.  Her outfit looks like the one from the movie and they even gave her the half-face mask she’s been rocking in the trailers.

So, that is all that is in the LoC box for May 2017.  I must admit, I an a little disappointed with the lack of a t-shirt  The socks aren’t really my thing, but they even got a hashtag for wearing them to see the WW movie (#SockItToEmWW).  The two Pops helps to make up for the shirt, and the Pint-Sized Hero WW gives you another Funko item to try.  Still, and I will keep repeating myself, I wish they’d include more of those 3 3/4 inch Funko action figures, like the Suicide Squad ones or the first appearance Superman from March.  A movie WW in that size would have rocked, Funko.  Well, with this subscription, sometimes you get more, sometimes you get less.

IMG_1712

That is all for this time.  The theme for the next DC Legion of Collectors box is Batman: the Animated Series, the classic cartoon from the 1990’s that spawned the DC Animated Universe (Superman: TAS, Justice League, Batman Beyond.)  You can subscribe at https://legionofcollectors.com/ in order to get your box.  The deadline is 1 July 2017.  By subscribing, you can order boxes from previous months like this one. (supplies are limited.)

This Review is for entertainment purposes only.  I have not received anything from Funko, DC, Warner Bros or the Kingdom of Themyscira for doing this review.  The item was purchased with my own funds.  All opinions are mine and any picture staken are for review purposes only.

Subscription Box Review: Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty- March 2017 – Star Wars Rebels

Just when I think I am out, they pull me back in.  Funko got around to doing a box based around the popular Star Wars: Rebels cartoon.  I could not pull out of the sub if there was a chance to get some cool merch with my second favorite Mandalorian on it (Sabine Wren), so I let it go for another round.  Will it be worth it?  Let’s see.

IMG_1651

The box has the Star Wars Rebels logo and a pop style Ezra on it.  Other than that, the box is the same one we’ve come to know and love.  Next!

IMG_1652

Under the lid we see this month’s pin and patch.  The patch is of Zeb Orrelios, the Lasat honour guard who is the team’s muscle.  His look was based on the Ralph McQuarrie sketches for Chewbacca.  The pin is of Sabine Wren (yes!), or, at least, her helmet.  Both are pretty decent.

IMG_1657

Next is the shirt, featuring the main Rebels cast in Pop form.  The blue and orange in the picture looks good on the black shirt.  There are no variants for this month’s shirt.

IMG_1659

Next is a Hikari of the Ghost’s resident droid, Chopper.  This is supposed to be a Hiraki Mini, but it is larger than my Darth Vader one from months back.  It stinks as well.  I mean there is a strong plastic smell.  There are five colours variations that you can get (red, orange, silver, black or white.)  I am still not a big fan of these figures.

IMG_1660

 

Finally we get to the Pops.  We get two.  One is Darth Maul, who has recently been featured on the show.  He was reveled to be alive on the Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon. with a robotic lower half.  The other is another holdout form The Clone Wars:  Captain Rex, one of Kenobi’s and Anakin’s trusted clone troopers.  Now aged and grizzled and on the run from the Empire, he also helps the Rebels.  Though both are on the series, I am disappointed we did not get one of the main characters, they are still cool looking Pops.

IMG_1661IMG_1662

So that was the Rebels box.  I am kind of disappointed by it, as there is no Sabine pop and I don’t like the Hikari Minis.  Still what we got was good so, it just the was it goes.  Maybe a future Mandalorian Box will get me the unique Sabine Pop I want to pair with my Boba Fett.

IMG_1663

The next Smuggler’s Bounty box will ship in May 2017.  May’s theme is Star Wars 4o0 anniversary. You can subscribe to Smuggler’s Bounty at https://www.smugglersbounty.com/  You can also purchase the previous boxes like the one just reviewed, but supplies are limited.  The deadline to subscribe for the Empire Strikes Back box is 15 May 2017.
