< Box Office Prediction: Boo 2!...
Hasbro has unveiled the full set of Marvel Legends figures for their Black Panther line, with the announcement that Nakia and Killmonger will be included in the new wave. One of T’Challa’s female bodyguards, Okoye, will be the build-a-figure for the series.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2017, Hasbro announced a number of new waves for their Marvel Legends line , along with a Black Panther movie series that will feature Namor the Sub-Mariner (in his classic green trunks) and Black Bolt. At HASCON 2017, Hasbro added the Invincible Iron Man to the set. All three figures come with interchangeable heads, while both Iron Man and Namor have interchangeable hands as well. No new Black Panther figures were revealed at New York Comic-Con 2017.
The remaining figures for the Black Panther wave were announced by Hasbro this week at London Comic-Con 2017. Releasing alongside Namor, Black Bolt, and Iron Man are movie versions of Nakia, Eric Killmonger, and of course, Black Panther. Collecting everyone in the wave except for Iron Man and Black Panther will allow fans to build Okoye. The three previously-announced figures are the only comic book-inspired figures in the wave.
Eric Killmonger’s figure gives fans a spectacular, close-up look at the character’s “Golden Jaguar” costume that was spotted in the Black Panther movie’s second trailer. The vibranium suit is a variation of T’Challa’s “Black Panther” outfit. The figure also comes with interchangeable clawed hands and two vibranium weapons.
Nakia, one of the Dora Milaje sworn to protect the King of Wakanda, is packaged with a dagger and a pair of chakrams (African ring-shaped blades). Black Panther comes with an interchangeable Chadwick Boseman head and two fists. Okoye, the second Dora Milaje in the series, wields a spear when fully assembled.
Aside from the Marvel Legends figures, other Black Panther toys were shown at London Comic-Con as well, such as Black Panther claws, masks, and vehicles. Action figures outside of the Marvel Legends line were also displayed.
