First shown off at the 2018 San Diego ComicCon, Hot Toys officially launched the pre-order for Shuri – the break out character from both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
As we saw at SDCC, the likeness to actress Letitia Wright shown in this pre-production figure is spot on and continues the line of amazing likenesses to come from HT over the last couple of years. In addition, Shuri comes outfitted in a movie-accurate costume on a newly-developed body and the following accessories:
- Seven interchangeable hands; 1 pair of fists, 1 pair of relaxed hands, 1 pair of spear-holding hands, 1 gesturing right hand
- LED lit Vibranium Gauntlets
- Kimoyo Beads bracelet
- Black Panther themed stand
Shuri retails for $228.
Also up for pre-order, the Wakandan Throne – the seat of the Black Panther. Retailing for $110, it looks to be a nicely detailed piece that stands approximately 32.5cm tall and 19cm wide (12.75″ x 7.5″). Price seems a bit high on this – but to be expected for anything associated with Black Panther – but it would make a great display piece and should just fit into the ubiquitous Detolf shelf.
Trevor is a New York-based Creative Director and owner of The Brand Counselors. He has a growing collection of 150ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
