Octobers theme is currently not known, which is a little worrying

It should be The Mandalorian and then next up, The Risse of Skywalker. Maybe Amazon has to wait until triple force Friday to announce?

Does the ending of smugglers bounty mean the others could be on their way out as well? There are only two more boxes left of smugglers bounty based on an email funko sent out. I hope the other boxes don't meet he same fate.

I'd say it is likely. Mystery Box companies and product seem to be completely dead.

They are fun at first but then you end up with a lot of stuff you would have never bought and nowhere to put it. I have a Friend that sends what they don't want in their x-mas gifts. It's like shopping all year without the work.

I am really sad to see Smuggler's Bounty ending - I looked forward to it every single time. After buying our house I had to cut back on the Pops I buy, but SB was non-negotiable.
Pops I want Funko to make:

Taylor Swift, Q from Impractical Jokers, Danger Mouse

That is somewhat sad to me because it was a loot crate box my wife that got me as a present that got me hooked on Funko. So I have to give credit to loot crate for introducing me to such an awesome product in 2014, and I haven't looked back since.

That's how a lot of people started. I did Loot Crate for nearly 3 years. I dropped out in December last year.

Same. Personally I've loved getting SB the past few years. It is one of my favorite things and has provided a number of Pops I always hoped would get made and hadn't. Probably not long before MCC goes away as well but I love getting that one too. :(

Go grab 'em real soon. Funko just officially announced that we are down to the last two Smuggler Bounty boxes. Sad though that's it's already ending. :(

Same goes with me. I have all the Smuggler Bounty boxes, as well as all the Marvel Collector Corps boxes since Day 1. \:D/ \:D/

But come to think of it, there was just too much Star Wars POPs that they have already produced thus far, it would probably be wise to stop the box, and focus on the store exclusives instead.

can't believe there's only 2 more left... I wonder if sales dipped after funko stopped doing boxes themselves and handed it over to amazon

The thing with star wars is that a majority of people only know the popular characters (vader, luke, yoda, etc.) And you can only do so much with certain characters. Maybe funko figured the obscure characters wouldnt translate into sales.

I think subscription boxes in general have been in decline. It probably didn't help that each month had different amounts of purchases being made, which makes it hard to source the right allotment ahead of time for each box. It probably would have been best if they made it where you had to subscribe to 6 boxes at once, by a certain date, and then they could source the materials to fit the subscription size. It would make for a lot fewer subscriptions, but also make the Pop!s (and other items) more sought after since they would have a more limited run.

I just watched the Funko unboxing of the box...and i must have cringed so many times @__@

Part of me wishes they at the very least researched how to pronounce the character's names T__T

Not all that surprised by the news these are ending. I always thought the sub box craze would be temporary and when funko stopped managing it, I figured that was the beginning of the end. The model is too hard to sustain unless you require a longer term commitment. Plus, not sure it was because they were running out of ideas or the cost got to be too high, but the quality has really dipped and it started way before funko stopped managing them.

Anyway, it was a good run and I'm glad I got all the boxes. In the end though, I do feel like I paid for a lot of filler I wouldn't have bought otherwise so I'm not too sad about it...and neither is my wallet.

Not surprised this is ending solely based on the fact that they are running out of characters to make.

The con exclusives are event cool anymore they’re just chrome so it’s no surprise they can’t think of anything to actually put in the boxes.
