I can't say I really understand the Tsum Tsum trend. They started in Japan (of course) as a cute stackable line of plush Disney character collectibles. I always thought they were supposed to be gerbils or something, but apparently they are shaped this way just to be stackable. Either way, between the fact that they were plush, large (7-11"), over-stlyistic (in my opinion), and centered on characters I wasn't interested in collecting, they were just completely off my radar. Then the Marvel characters started and I began to pay attention. But I still wasn't tempted because of the plush thing. Then along comes Jakks with a license to produce small vinyl versions. I honestly wasn't planning to get any until I came across this 9-figure Women of POWer set at Walmart. Getting an instant collection like that was quite an incentive. I actually think I will try to get all the ladies in the collection now that I'm only missing a few. They're pretty cute little additions to my collections. Let's check out the Women of Power below!
Included in the set are:
Gamora Wasp Black Widow
Ms. Marvel Spider-Gwen Thor
She-Hulk Spider-Woman Medusa
Like the original Disney plushes, these vinyl minis come in three sizes. The small ones are roughly the size of a jelly bean, the medium ones are about the size of a grape, and the large ones are roughly the size of a peach pit. Each character will eventually be available in all sizes. So you could stack up three small-medium-large Medusas if you wanted.
The only existing female character not included in this set are Black Cat, Mary Jane, Nebula, and Tigra. And coming in Series 03 will be Squirrel Girl and White Tiger. They were just unveiled over at tsumtsumcentral.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
