Disney has been releasing Tsum Tsums, versions of their characters that look like mutated guinea pigs. And, since Disney owns Marvel, they have released the first series of vinyl figures. I picked up one of my favorite characters, the Winter Soldier.
I really don’t understand the appeal of these figures, but I can’t deny that they are appealing. Despite being a fearsome brainwashed assassin turned superhero, this version of The Winter Soldier, is, well, cute. In a world that seems to get crazier by the news cycle, maybe a little cuteness isn’t so bad.
