Marvel Tsum Tsums

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.
