For whatever reason, the regular Doctor Strange isn't the first numbered figure in the Doctor Strange series. That goes to what I consider the less interesting astral form variant, but I didn't get that figure, so here is the regular Strange figure. This is Doctor Strange in the movie version of his classic costume (he does have the yellow gloves in the movie, but only in the mid-credits sequence). Depending on how you define accessories, he has one or three. There is a mystical shield (or perhaps some other sort of magic) that he can hold, and both the Cloak of Levitation and Eye of Agamotto are removable. There are also alternate hands posed in a magic gesturing pose. The Benedict Cumberbatch likeness works better from some angles than others. I think they went a bit overboard with the grey on the temples, though.
