It’s been over four years since the release of Marvel’s original Black Panther film and the wait is finally over for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The second official installment of the Wakanda story picks up in a post-Endgame world where new and unknown powers threaten the safety of the fictional country. The absence of the late Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa in the film and trailers makes it clear that the mantle of Black Panther will likely be passed on to another of the franchise’s leading roles.
Last month, StockX teamed up with Marvel to support the initial Purple Carpet screening of the film. As the official sponsors of the Marvel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Purple Carpet, StockX sent one of our ambassadors, Sydeon, to cover the event. With the Purple Carpet and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s official release now behind us, we’ve pulled together a short list of must-have Marvel picks based around the film. If you love all things Wakanda, StockX is the place to grab collectibles, apparel, and sneakers to commemorate it.
If you’re looking to celebrate one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel universe, look no further than the LEGO Marvel Studios Black Panther set. This model recreates King T’Challa’s iconic helmet in all its reflective black and silver glory, along with a sturdy engraved name plate and base. With detachable hands and articulated fingers, this elegant bust perfectly captures the essence of Black Panther, and is an essential add to the collection of any die-hard fan of Wakanda’s Royal Family. Right now, the set is available on StockX for below its original retail price, making it a no-brainer to add to your current collection or holiday wish list.
The Hasbro Marvel Legends Legacy Collection Black Panther Premium Electronic Helmet is a great option for anyone who’s looking for a high-quality and authentic roleplay experience. This helmet features all of the details that you would hope to see in a replica helmet, including vivid vibranium light effects and flip-up/flip-down lenses that can be triggered with a single touch. It also has adjustable sizing to ensure a comfortable fit, making it ideal for cosplay, Halloween, or just wearing around the house. This helmet is a must-have for those who love Black Panther and are looking to add something memorable from the movie to their collection.
Though we haven’t yet seen the movie, it’s clear that Shuri, Princess of Wakanda and T’Challa’s younger sister, will be playing a gigantic role. This action figure, released in 2019 by Hot Toys, features a Movie Masterpiece version of the Black Panther character played by Letitia Wright. This figure delivers an authentic rendition of Shuri from the original Black Panther film with seven pieces of interchangeable hands including a pair of LED light up Vibranium Gauntlets. If you’re looking to grab a collectible version of Shuri, the potential favorite to take up the mantle of Black Panther in Wakanda Forever, this action figure is a must-have.
Those who are actively keeping up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe will remember that the beloved Black Panther character made his original debut in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. After this, he was a crucial part of Phase 3, appearing in several films and helping to shape the overall arc of the MCU. This Hot Toys Marvel Movie Masterpiece Black Panther Civil War Collectible Figure beautifully captures the majesty and strength of Black Panther in his original debut. The figure comes with six pieces of interchangeable gloved hands, including a pair of fists, a pair of clenched hands, and a pair of hands with claws. At over two and a half feet tall, this 1/6th scale figure is a must-have for any true Marvel collector. StockX fans will not want to miss out on adding this incredible piece to their collection.
A lot of merchandise and collaborations have been released in the leadup to Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. One of the biggest and most exciting of those collaborations has come with adidas, where Marvel and the activewear brand have delivered a collection of sneakers and apparel for the film. One of the sneakers released as a part of that collection is the adidas Ultra 4D Marvel Black Panther, which is made with recycled materials, a 3D printed midsole, and features Wakanda-inspired design elements. Additionally, this particular sneaker from the collection is available on StockX for below its original retail price, meaning you can rep your favorite superhero franchise for less.
Go underwater for one of Marvel and LEGO’s latest deliveries with the LEGO Marvel Studios Black Panther Wakanda Forever King Namor’s Throne Room Set. Featuring what is presumably a scene from the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie, this set includes three minifigures: Shuri, King Namor, and Attuma. For those who aren’t totally clued in on the new film, it’s expected that Shuri, Princess of Wakanda and the late T’Challa’s younger sister, will be taking up the mantle of main character in this film. King Namor and Attuma, who haven’t yet been introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, are the film’s villains and this LEGO set depicts his underwater throne room. With the film’s official release now behind us, it’s the perfect time to get your hands on this LEGO set.
The introduction of Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that comes laden with sadness and strife from the very beginning. In Captain America: Civil War, the Black Panther is revealed shortly after the death of T’Challa’s father, King T’Chaka. This Funko Pop Marvel Black Panther T’Chaka figure features the late King T’Chaka during a time when he held the mantle of Black Panther. His suit is noticeably different from T’Challa’s, which is more purple and silver than gold. Additionally, T’Chaka’s Black Panther character can be seen wearing a purple kente cloth wrap over it.
This officially licensed Marvel Black Panther Wakanda Necklace was released late last year but makes for the perfect piece to show off your love for the franchise. In the movies, this necklace is synonymous with the mantle of Black Panther or King of Wakanda and its claws store the iconic Black Panther suit. The necklace features ten stainless steel premium metal claws and includes a clamshell display case and certificate of authenticity.
