Smuggler's Bounty

Disney and Funko have announced a new bi-monthly subscription box for Star Wars fans called Smuggler’s Bounty:

For $25 every other month, members will receive a box full of Star Wars-themed Funko items that focus on a different part of the Star Wars universe. The debut box — themed The Force Awakens — will ship this November and contain two exclusive Pop! vinyl bobbleheads from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as a host of other surprises perfect for fans on both sides of the Force. The first box’s design, previewed below, features the villainous Kylo Ren (in Pop! form) and Death Star-esque vertical lines for a First Order-approved look. Boxes will ship every two months, and there are two member levels available: a monthly plan, and an annual plan that includes a mystery reward.

You can sign up today at smugglersbounty.com for the premiere box. Very tempting the path to the darkside is. Speaking of which, Star Wars and Marvel both now have fun subscription boxes, why doesn’t the overarching Disney brand have their own subscription box? I’d subscribe.

Yesterday Apple announced their upcoming Apple Television device. The new device will have video game capabilities and not just for mobile games. It was revealed that Disney Infinity 3.0 will be released for the device, which means you’ll be able to play the Star Wars levels and characters on the new gizmo.

The Disney Infinity 3.0 starter pack will include the Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano figures, the  Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic playset, a wireless Disney Infinity 3.0bluetooth base and an MFi (made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) controller designed specifically for the game and Apple TV.

Not many details have been released but it appears Disney will be releasing a bluetooth Disney Infinity figure dock for the device, which is better than the ones released for the video game consoles because it doesn’t need to be plugged in to the system (which I’m sure has caused a share of accidents).

 

StarWars.com has a preview of a new book called Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.

Our book focuses on the characters, creatures, locations, and ships of Star Wars, but along the way, we cover everything in-between. We delve deep into the obscure facts and trivia of Star Wars, all displayed within a jungle-gym of fun and often humorous text, photos, diagrams, hidden gems, Easter Eggs, and oddities. If you love numerical trivia, foreign language phrasebooks, comparative charts of alien livestock, lists of obscure Ewok paraphernalia, perusing the edible delights you might find inside a Hutt’s tummy, digging for hidden lifeforms inside a clone’s nostril, or just amazing your friends with endless trivia to both delight and overwhelm, then this is the book for you!

Star Wars Uprising

The mobile game Star Wars Uprising has been released this week, and features canonized stories from the 30 year gap between Return of the Jedi and the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We previously featured a trailer for the game this summer. I tried playing it last night and just got too annoying with the point and move structure of the game to keep going.

Warning: the next page contains images and information about the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I don’t really consider any of it spoilers, but you have been warned in case you want to stay away.
