With less than six months until Black Panther hits movie theaters, Yahoo! has unveiled a first look at the film's upcoming toy line, including a sneak peek at villain Erik Killmonger's previously teased Black Panther suit.
Included in the batch of new toys are multiple Black Panther figures, including T'Challa in his new and improved suit for the 2018 film, as well as one that showcases the hero's vibranium charged suit, which was teased in the exclusive trailer showcased during Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Also joining the line is T'Challa's half-sister, Shuri, who stole in the show with her gauntlets in the film's first teaser trailer.
Even better for fans? Not only will there be a Shuri figure, but Nerf will be releasing the Nerf Vibranium Strike Gauntlet based on her character's famous gauntlets.
As exciting as those all are, it's the first look at Killmonger's own Black Panther suit that is sure to get fans talking. Fans who were able to get into Marvel's Hall H presentation at SDCC this past July have already gotten a sneak peek at Michael B. Jordan's villain, but this will be the first time the general public gets a feel for what to expect.
The suit isn't much different from T'Challa's, with the coloring and markings being the main differences.
Other toys set to be released include a 2-in-1 Panther Jet, Titan figures featuring both Black Panther and Killmonger to go alongside the 6-inch figures, a Vibranium Power Black Panther FX Mask, Vibranium Power FX Claw, a Slash Claw and a standard Black Panther Mask. Hasbro will launch their Black Panther toy line this spring after making their public debut at Hascon, Hasbro’s convention covering all its lines, in Providence, R.I. -- with the convention running through Sunday.
Opening February 16, 2018, director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani.
