Marvel's Black Panther is making waves everywhere, and one of its next stops will be on your favorite display shelf. Hot Toys has revealed its upcoming collectible figure based on Michael B. Jordan's fan-favorite villain Erik Killmonger in his regal Golden Jaguar costume.
The 1/6th-scale figure is highly detailed, as fans have come to expect from the Hong Kong-based Hot Toys. The golden hues of Killmonger's suit are striking, as are the noticeable teeth lines that form the muzzle of the mask. The collectible will also feature an interchangeable head featuring Jordan's likeness, four sets of hands and two weapons.
Killmonger has been hailed as one of Marvel Studios' best villains, in a movie that is garnering near-universal praise. Now, fans will be able to bring home their own take on the character to display on their shelves. What's more, it would make for a fantastic companion piece to Hot Toys' luminescent Black Panther figure, which is available now for preorder.
