Celebrate THE SANDLOT’s 25th Anniversary with New Funko Pops!

Are you feeling super old today, like it’s been for-e-ver since you were a carefree kid spending your summer playing baseball with your friends? If you’re not feeling that way already, you might after you hear this: The Sandlot turns 25 on April 1. Yeah, twenty-five. But we’re not telling you this to make you feel old; we also have awesome news, too: Funko is celebrating the anniversary of the beloved kid’s classic with all new Pop! figures for the film.

The newest announced figures from Funko, which we first saw at EW, include Scotty Smalls sporting a black eye and wearing his ridiculous large-brimmed hat, Benny “the Jet” choking up on the bat to try and make contact so he can utilize his speed, Squints looking ready for battle—both on the field and verbally—and Ham pointing to the fences in his best impression of that lady “Baby Ruth.”

Of course you can’t pay tribute to The Sandlot without honoring The Beast.Complete with a lost baseball in his mouth, Hercules the dog will be available as a GameStop exclusive. And in honor of one of the creepiest kisses in movie history, Target will have a special two-pack featuring poolside Smalls and lifeguard Wendy Peffercorn.

All figures will be available in June, just in time for summer vacation.

So yeah, we feel a little weird knowing the movie is now old enough to have a kid of its own playing at the Sandlot, but that doesn’t mean these won’t help remind us of a time when our biggest concern was whether we should play baseball or go to the pool.

What other character from the movie would you like to see get added to the line? Step up to the plate of our comments section and let us know.
