The accessories remains the same also with two head options and three interchangeable hats. Popeye's comes with 6 versions of his pipes, three of which have added smoke effect.
We have seven interchangeable hand options, a telescope, compass and two cans of spinach, one crushed. There is also a soft good duffel bag for Popeye to stow his gear in. And the whole figure sits on a display stand with anchor motif.
The figure will arrive in this innovative Spinach Tin packaging
