2 Fierce Sideshow Statues Pay Homage to Black Panther Legacy • The Pop Insider
Marvel fans, treat yourself to a pair of high-end collectibles while you wait Black Pantheris next this year!
The 2018 release of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Black Panther left a permanent mark in the hearts of Marvel fans. To celebrate the film’s legacy, collectibles maker Sideshow has announced two new statues that pay homage to the film’s central character.
The Black Panther 1:4 statue measures approximately 26.5 inches and is sculpted from polystone. The statue features T’Challa in his signature on-screen vibranium panther costume, standing on a piece of Wakandan architecture depicting the panther goddess Bast and gazing into the distance. The statue comes with two heads, T’Challa in his Black Panther mask and an unmasked variant.
The Black Panther Designer Vinyl Collectible Bust, meanwhile, gives the character an urban Aztec twist. This upper body bust depicts T’Challa flexing the claws of his suit in a Wakandan salute. The costume itself is reimagined in urban Aztec style – designs that are a “combination of graffiti and ancient indigenous culture” – and glows when displayed under black light.
Fans can pre-order both of these collectibles on the Sideshow website.
