Funko POP’s take on Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston’s character in Crimson Peak) has arrived to join Lady Sif, my first foray into the world of tiny adorable character figures. I had him on my shortlist of figures I might get, and when I saw that he’d been released, I ordered him in a moment of severe weakness (last week was very, very stressful and exhausting). I think he looks delightfully fretful, and since I’ve been worrying a lot lately, I figure he can worry with me, or possibly for me.
I like the companion figure of Edith Cushing too — the little candelabra is such a great accessory — but I already have one more figure on the “must buy” list (Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock, holding a violin) and several on the “strongly considering” list, and my budget can only cover so many little vinyl folk. I’ll have to sternly remind myself that just because I like something, that doesn’t mean I have to own it.
