Kotobukiya is bringing T’Challa to it’s line of Marvel fine art statues.  That’s right, the leader of Wankanda himself…Black Panther is being immortalized in statue form.

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther made his Marvel comics debut in the pages of Fantastic Four #52 back in July of 1966.   Since then, T’Challa has been an Avenger, part of Fantastic Four and most recently part of Marvel’s Illuminati.

Kotobukiya’s new statue measures 12 inches in height (1/6 scale).  It features Black Panther in his iconic black vibranium suit, high collared cape and gold necklace, claws and belt.

The Fine Art Black Panther statue retails for $239.99 and will be available May 2016.  You can pre-order him now over at Koto’s online store.
