To get excited for the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premiere, our latest StockX Ambassador, Sydeon, clues us in on what items get her the most hyped for the highly anticipated movie.

As StockX sponsors the upcoming premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on October 26th ahead of its nationwide debut in November, we sent our StockX Ambassador, Sydeon, to roll out the purple carpet. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Sydeon is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers. With a total of 356K followers, she is one of the few Black women dominating the gaming space and being a figure for future gamers to come. As an avid fan of the Marvel movies herself, Sydeon was the perfect fit to represent StockX for the movie and has selected a bunch of products to get anyone in the right mood for the Wakanda Forever. Check below to cop up on some Black Panther products ahead of the latest upcoming installment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

LEGO Marvel Studios Black Panther Set 

The way that Chadwick Boseman brought the Black Panther hero to life will never be recreated. Even outside of the movies, Boseman was found throwing up the signature “Wakanda Forever” salute, just for the mere fact that fans saw him as the Wakanda leader in real life. To continue that legacy that Boseman created with the character is this LEGO Marvel Studios Black Panther Set 76215. With 2961 pieces, this set is a true labor of love for any fan of the Black Panther. The set includes the iconic superhero in his suit doing that same “Wakanada Forever” salute. In addition, the set comes with a display base to show off your love for the character. 

Funko Pop! Marvel Studios Black Panther Black Light

You know what they say about the suit: it makes the hero. And that’s especially true for Black Panther in his Vibranium suit. This Funko! Pop figure brings us back to the first Black Panther movie, highlighting one of the major fight scenes between King T’Challa and Killmonger and introducing us to the true power of T’Challa’s suit. Standing at four inches, this highly detailed collectible showcases that same vibranium suit, ready to take on whatever comes his way. But there’s more to this figure than meets the eye. Not only does it glow in the dark, but it also comes with a special black light effect that makes it even more eye-catching on your shelf. 

Funko Pop! Marvel Studios Black Panther Black Light With T-Shirt Bundle

If you really want to take a deep dive into full fandom, getting the matching tee to this figure will do the trick. The tee features a more animated version of the Funko! Pop figurine and displays a similarly vibrant design to the collectible. And if you’re a fan of the figurine, it also comes with the tee, so you can admire both at the same time and show off your love for the crime-fighting hero. 

LEGO Marvel Studios Black Panther Wakanda Forever Shuri’s Sunbird Set

After the unfortunate and untimely passing of Chadwick Boseman, and from the looks of trailers, King T’Challa, the franchise seems to have shifted its focus to a new leader for Wakanda. Seeing that T’Challa’s sister, Shuri, was always by his side and is considered an engineering genius, we should expect to see her crowned as the new leader of the nation and become an even more developed character within the MCU. As we anticipate seeing more of Shuri and her inventions, this LEGO set of her Sunbird is sure to help build more anticipation for the film.

adidas Ultra 4D Marvel Black Panther

The adidas Ultra 4D Marvel Black Panther is as futuristic as the vibranium suit that T’Challa wears in the Black Panther movie. These sneakers feature adidas’ Ultra 4D outsole, an entirely printed outsole that provides comfort throughout the foot. Whether you’re saving the world or just running errands, you’ll look and feel like a superhero in these sneakers. 

Off-White Shiny Ribbed See-Thru Dress

For her purple carpet debut, Sydeon will be sporting this Shiny Ribbed See-Thru dress courtesy of Off-White. This luxurious piece was designed by the late, great Virgil Abloh for his much-loved label. It’s crafted from a sumptuous ribbed fabric and is see-thru for an alluring look. The dress also features “OFF” branding on the upper chest area.

Amina Muaddi Gilda 95mm Glass PVC Mule

To pair with her Off-White dress, Sydeon is sporting a pair of Amina Muaddi heels. Amina Muaddi is the latest designer making some of the hottest heels. Celebrities from Rihanna to Hailey Bieber have been strutting in her heels and now they’ll be hitting the purple carpet for the new Black Panther movie. These Amina Muaddi Gilda 95mm Glass PVC Mule heels are made entirely in Italy and feature a pointed toe, midfoot strap, signature flared heel, and studded accents throughout the upper.

 

Brandon Blackwood “End Systemic Racism” ESR Tote

Another Black designer that Sydeon will be wearing at the Purple Carpet event is Brandon Blackwood and his eponymous handbag line. The Brandon Blackwood “End Systemic Racism” ESR Tote features the bag’s signature End Systemic Racism phrasing on the frontside of the bag. While purple vegan leather material makes it just the right bag for the movie premiere and the purple carpet. 

Chanel Metal and Strass Earrings

Finishing up her look are these metal and strass earrings from Chanel. These earrings feature the classic interlocked Chanel C logo and is studded in crystals and gold. Look for this piece to be shining on the purple carpet.
