The next Marvel movie will be Black Panther in February 2018, and Diamond Select Toys will be releasing a 7" Select figure of Black Panther in their Select MCU range.
Up to now, all we had seen of this figure was a silouette. Now Diamond have given us the first proper look at T'Challa. He will come with the standard 16 points of articulation, swap out hands and the usual diorama which is a mix of Wakanda technology and rocks. We aren't sure if this is still representative of the "Warriors Falls" as per the first blurb we saw on this figure.
The release date says Spring 2018. Based on current run-rate - excluding the protracted Guardians figures - the Select are running about 3 months after the movie release, so May will be the safest bet. He will be priced as per normal, around $25 in US, £22-£25 here in UK.
