Taking Gritty out of the box and turning him around we get a very good look at all the orange that is on him. From his head down to his Flyers Jersey. He is decked out. Funko even managed to capture the googly eyes that the real mascot has.
ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with. NONE!
ARTICULATION: How can we pose the figure? Let's find out.
Gritty’s head is on a mushroom peg, however, due to all his hair and his hands being up, you can’t get more than a little movement left and right.
