Nerd Buy: ‘Tommy Boy’ Funko Pop! Vinyls

by Phil Wheat

“If at first you don’t succeed, lower your standards.”

Originally released in 1995, the cult comedy film Tommy Boy, starring the late Chris Farley alongside David Spade, joins the Funko Pop! vinyl range early next year – with Pops of seven-year college graduate Tommy (Farley) and his dad’s sycophantic assistant Richard (Spade).

Tommy Callahan Jr. is a slow-witted, clumsy guy who recently graduated college after attending for seven years. His father, Big Tom Callahan, owns an auto parts factory in Ohio. When Tommy arrives back home, he finds he has a position at the factory waiting for him. His dad also introduces Tommy to the new brake pad division of the factory and to Tommy’s soon-to-be stepmother, Beverly, and her son Paul. But when Big Tom dies, the factory threatens to go under unless the new brake pads are to be sold. Therefore, Tommy must go on the road to sell them, along with the assistance of Richard, Big Tom’s right-hand man. Will Tommy save the company, or will the factory, and the town, go under?

Released in the UK in March 2018, look out for pre-orders of these two new Funko Pop! Tommy Boy vinyl figures going live at places like PopinaBox.co.uk very soon!
