More Civil War merch is coming for you. This time it’s courtesy of Hot Toys and takes shape in the form of Black Panther! Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and leader of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, T’Challa made his comic book debut in Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966.
The new sixth scale Hot Toys figure is based on Chadwick Boseman portrayal of the character in Marvel Studios upcoming feature film, Captain America: Civil War. The figure features movie accurate costuming, with newly developed helmeted head with silver trim, several sets of clawed hands (in various states of openness) and a Captain America: Civil War themed figure base. Kinda surprised is the lack of a non-helmet portrait based on Chadwick Boseman. Perhaps they just couldn’t get the actor’s approval for his likeness.
Retail and availability for the figure to be released soon. Check back soon.
