Okay, so it seems that the flurry of Tom Hanks Pop figures Funko has released this month isn't only about his beard. They appear to be celebrating all things Tom Hanks - and with good reason. He's a legend. He also celebrated his birthday on July 9th, so that might have something to do with it. Either way, our Funko Pop collections are better for it now that a series of figures from the movie Big are up for grabs.
The collection includes a Pop figure of Josh Baskin wearing his piano outfit, Josh in the oversized suit after he becomes a child again, and a 6-inch super-sized Zoltar fortune telling machine. You can pre-order all of those figures right here with shipping slated for September / October. Naturally, you should go aver the Zoltar Pop first because that's going to be a BIG seller. Note that a Josh Baskin white tuxedo Pop will be heading to Target as an exclusive in the coming months.
In other Tom Hanks-related product news, USAopoly released the Toy Story Collector's Chess set earlier today, which replaces the standard pieces with full-color sculpted PVC figures of Disney / Pixar's franchise-favorite characters. Pre-orders for the Toy Story Collector's Chess set are available right here for $59.99 with shipping slated for September. A breakdown of the character pieces can be found below.
