No September Smuggler's Bounty Box (at least thru Funko)

Postby eljefe81 » Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:39 pm

I could be wrong, but I thought the original plan was for September to be the final Smuggler's Bounty box thru Funko, and then it would transition over to whatever 3rd party provider is picking up the box. However, if you go to the Smuggler's Bounty page, they indicate that it is finished and that they will be announcing soon how the future boxes will be distributed. You can still order past boxes thru the site, and sign up for notification of when the new boxes will be available.

Yeah, Funko has Zero F's for Smuggler's Bounty. They just emailed subscribers to tell us they are dropping it and not doing a September box. They still are not announcing the retail partner that will take it over. Whatever...lame.

They already said months ago that GameStop would be taking the wheel from here on out.

Oh ok, thanks for the note. Why don't they just say that in their official comms? Their comm today just says a retail partner.

Did they? I don't remember seeing that listed anywhere (definitely not in any kind of official announcement).

I got the email today. There’s no mention of the founder’s gift so it seems this is a way to avoid sending that out since we didn’t finish out the year?

This is what Funko said back in February. We need to hold them accountable:
Annual Gift
As an Annual Subscriber to Smuggler's Bounty, you will receive your annual subscription gift. Even if your annual subscription is not completed and Funko issues a refund for boxes not fulfilled, we will still send you the Smuggler's Bounty Annual Subscriber's gift. Annual gifts will be delivered within a month of your annual renewal date.

Maybe the pops going forward with a 3rd party retailer will also be exclusive and very cool. I'm with you, the pops are the reason I subscribed and I always felt it was worth the $$ for the pops. I didn't care much for most of the other bits, especially those damn socks.

I forgot about that. Weird that they didn’t mention it in the goodbye email.

If they forgot to design something, a chrome gold C-3PO should be pretty quick and will do just fine. ;-)

I hope we don’t see the quality of Smugglers Bounty decline with it going to a 3rd party retailer. I’m a little worried about it after seeing the first Disney Treasures box from Hot Topic :(

At least I could find some use out of a handerkerchief, even if it's just to use it as a napkin once and throw it away. But the socks that are one size fits some? I mean, I guess I could use it as a napkin, but that'd be weird.

We should come up with a list of uses for all the "throw-ins" that most people can't use with the subscription boxes. And yes, I know some people with the right sized foot and specific taste love the socks. ;)

Handkerchief
    One-use napkin.
    Oil rag.
    Christmas present for your frenemy.

One Size Fits Some Socks
    Hand puppet
    Container for marbles.
    Christmas present for your frenemy.

Keychain
    A link for a keychain rope to go with your 100 other keychains
    Halloween giveaway.
    Christmas present for your frenemy.

Wrist Sweatbands
    A pear warmer (like the wrapping around an asian pear).
    Something to fling at your friends.
    Christmas present for your frenemy.

So on, and so forth. :)
