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 business owner. He has a growing collection of 200ish 1:6th scale stock and custom figures (and more and more Lego sets and Mezcos). Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the stupid money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building dios.
