They come with posable hands, and small items eg phone, notebook, pen, watch and magnifier for Sherlock, plus gloved hands, and John gets a cup of tea!
Closeup of Sherlock and his skull:
You can't actually see the detail in these photos - Sherlock is wearing a black wool coat, with a satin lining, and when you open it he has a navy wool scarf on over a black suit. It's incredibly well-done. I haven't taken John out of the box yet - didn't want to take Sherlock out at all but it was difficult to photograph him otherwise.
His violin, of course:
And these are the background panels that come with them:
When I slid the slipcover box out of the packing carton, I dropped the carton onto the floor and Ziggy spent time happily jumping in and out of it. It wasn't until I picked it up to take it out to the bin that I discovered the artwork in the box:
They both look like they've had a hard night on the turps, in that, but I love it anyway. :-)
Happy Christmas to me!
