The last few years has seen the rise of an empire. Not a tyrannical empire hellbent on galactic domination. Oh no, this empire is an empire of collection domination, and they use the highly effective two ‘A’s’ method…

Awesomeness and AWWWWWW! Yes, I am of course referring to Funko and their ever increasing line of Funko Pops.

Funko Pops are an incredible way to build a collection of your favorite film, TV, and video game characters. They are extremely affordable and look simply spectacular! Funko may have outdone themselves with their latest upcoming Pop release.

At some point, next month Target will be selling this special edition Darth Vader with TIE Fighter Deluxe POP. This is worthy of any Star Wars fan’s collection and definitely, meets the Awesomeness and AWWW criteria.  No price has been listed on the Target or Funko website yet, but when something looks that dang good then what’s a few bucks aye?

There is no word as of yet if this will be available outside of the U.S. Fans around the globe will be praying this will be flying into stores near them.

So if you’re looking to add to your Star Wars collection this June, this is a purchase that is definitely worth “Targeting”.

 

Some people like Star Wars and some people really like Star Wars. There are occasions though when the Galaxy Far, Far Away consumes your very existence, and this is very much me. I have loved Star Wars for over 20 years, it was and always will be my biggest passion.

Photo Gallery – Smuggler’s Bounty Mystery Minis Darth Maul

Published

on

One of my favorite modern Star Wars collectibles has to be Mystery Minis from Funko. Mystery Minis are basically figures packaged in a small box that looks exactly like every other box in the case. The idea is that the identity of the figures are kept secret until you open the box. While Funko POP have taken a nice section of my display room, the Mystery Minis are quietly building their case as my favorite Star Wars Funko product.

#Note – Funko provided a sample Smuggler’s Bounty box for the purpose of this review.

Upon opening the newest Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko, I was pleasantly surprised to find another Mystery Mini in this box. Last month’s box contained a Star Wars: The Last Jedi Luke Skywalker Mystery Mini! Unlike last month’s box, there is only one available figure (there were two different versions of Luke).

We will review the entire box during next week’s podcast, but this piece was just too cool not to share. Darth Maul is one of fandom’s top Star Wars villains, even though his theatrical appearance lasted all of about six minutes. The overall look of the character immediately made him one of interest to collectors and fans.

The overall sculpt of the piece fits right in line with the rest of Funko’s Star Wars Mystery Minis. He comes with the same base that all of the figures come with, so he can interlock with the rest of your  figures. The paint application is also spot on. My only complaint is one that I have with this entire line. Figures with lightsabers always seem to have them bent, due to the packaging process. I doubt this is something that can truly be fixed, but a little hot water will probably allow you to bend it back in place.

Check out the photo gallery below!

This figure is well worth the price of the Smuggler’s Bounty box!

The only problem I have now, is deciding where to put him. To this point, Funko has only released Star Wars Mystery Minis based on Star Wars: A New Hope, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I guess he will be the official start of my Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Mystery Minis collection.

About Smuggler’s Bounty from Funko:

Each box costs just $25. With that $25, you get $50 in value of exclusive, high-quality collectible products including but not limited to apparel, accessories, toys and memorabilia. No fluff, no filler!  You can pre-order your box at smugglersbounty.com!
