Quick Peek at Exclusive Marvel Legends Black Panther!
May 14, 2017

It seems like it’s taken forever to get here, but the time is almost at hand!  As a Black Panther fan, I was excited to get the new retail exclusive Marvel Legends Black Panther.  I’ve taken a few quick pics, so that you can compare him to the previous (Blue Panther?) version this figure was based on, as well as to the original Toy Biz version, and a custom figure.

 

Essentially, Black Panther is a better painted version of the previous release, which has become quite scarce.  If you’re like me, the previous Black Panther figure was a bit frustrating; he was a nice sculpt, but was way too blue for my tastes.  This new version corrects this oversight, and includes a few new (re-used) accessories.  Black Panther includes a spear, extra hands, a necklace, and a cape.  Astute collectors will be able to spot most of these pieces, such as Adam Warlock’s cape.  I can’t be sure, but the necklace may be new.

 

Here are a few comparison images, showing the new Black Panther alongside the previous version, Toy Biz, and a custom figure.

Look for Black Panther to start showing up at retail this month.  Happy hunting!
