Smugglers Bounty review #2, but #1?

So much as I wanted to write earlier on this, my mom is in the hospital and of course she takes priority. Writing is therapeutic for me though so I wanted to make a point to take some time out to talk about some of my favorite things.  Maybe I should change the title, but really it states things pretty clearly. Box number 2, yet my number 1 because I missed the first box. I have participated in other monthly subscription boxes, but I have to say that it’s about time there is one dedicated to Star Wars because really that is what I look forward to the most. So here we go!

If you are going to send me a box with BB-8 on it, of course I am going to fall in love quickly. Soon I will be the “overly attached girlfriend” to cardboard BB-8.

Yaaaaa just kidding.

I was pleasantly surprised by how this box was set up when I started opening it and thought it was creative as I lifted the lid and saw this next part:

I have an obsession with pins and patches so these will go nicely with my others that I have. I actually liked that they added this little twist before opening the box all the way. It’s like opening a Christmas present with a new gift in each fold. Too bad this only had 2………..

Check them out up close:

And of course you can’t have too many Star Wars shirts. Whoever says you can makes my heart sad.

But I already have a Chewbacca Funko Pop! you say…..Why do I need another one? you say…….But is he fuzzy??? IS HE??

Some would say that my collection of mugs needs to stop because we seriously have SO MANY. But if they are going to be sent to me, they obviously need a home.  C-3PO made the best “remember me” approach and every time I drink out of this mug, that part will always pop in my head and then I’ll probably end up spilling what I’m drinking because one, I am clumsy and 2, it doesn’t take a lot for me to giggle and then go back to number one of spilling. Really, I enjoyed seeing him again. With his replaced red arm. 🙂

So for $25 every other month, you are getting a $50 value. I know some people may shun me for saying this, but I think it’s actually nice that they send it every other month instead of monthly so it’s not so overwhelming. I say that because sometimes with monthly subscriptions I will leave stuff in the box to put away for later or to keep as a gift, forget I have them, then come back and say, “Crap! Where am I supposed to put all this stuff!” And since this is strictly Star Wars, I need to be able to put my babies away in a safe place. 😉

Honestly? I think it’s worth it. There are so many things that they will be able to do and it’s nice to know again that everything in the box comes from one franchise that I love. ❤

Hope you have a great night!

Much love,

BB-8 and Dahlface ❤
