Hasbro sent us some of their Forces of Destiny Toys for free to play with and Review. Opinions are 100% our own. Affiliat eLinks are contained within this post.The Forces of Destiny line of toys is based on the web series on YouTube. These are a series of shorts about the women of the Star Wars Universe. The dolls are not only the women, however. There are droids and there is even a Kylo Ren doll and a Chewbacca one. But, for the most part these are female figures. Much of the voicework on the series is done by the people who play those characters in the movies and on the cartoons like Star Wars Rebels.

I received my Smuggler’s Bounty box the other day and I opened it. I wasn’t that thrilled with what was inside this time. I felt that there could have been better things and I was also missing some of the things that I have really enjoyed about previous boxes, namely the patches and pins. What happened to the patches and pins. Then some of the boxes had been enclosing card that explained the choices behind some of the items included and how they came about as well as their significance. That was missing. The overall contents of the box were okay but I would have liked something else. I did an unboxing video that you can see below. Tell me what you think of the latest box and if it lives up to the standards you have come to expect from the Smuggler’s Bounty subscription.

I also got my second year founder’s trophy. It is revealed in the video as well.
