Caps Announce Tom Wilson 'Castaway' Bobblehead

The inspiration was drawn from Wilson's 2015 Halloween costume

Thanks to Capital One, the latest installment of the Capitals' all-fan bobblehead giveaway is Tom Wilson dressed in a volleyball costume.

The inspiration was drawn from Wilson's Halloween costume in 2015 in which he dressed up with former teammate Michael Latta as the pair from the movie Castaway. Latta went Tom Hanks, and Tom Wilson was - well, Wilson the volleyball.

And if you're thinking you've seen a version of this bobblehead before - you're not wrong.

In 2016, the all-fan bobblehead giveaway choice was left up to the fans. There were three choices in the running: Braden Holtby, Justin Williams, and Tom Wilson.

Holtby ended up winning the poll in which the Caps dubbed #CapsElectionNight by about 1,800 votes.

Wilson's bobblehead came in second place and now Capitals fans are finally getting another shot at this one of a kind item.

The new and improved version of the bobblehead features a Weagle on the volleyball as well as coconuts and a starfish on the sand near his feet.
