Review : Marvel Legends Black Panther, Black Panther

Welcome to our review of the 2019 release of Black Panther from the Marvel Legends 6 inch line of action figures. Black Panther is part of the 2nd wave of figures from Black Panther, a complete wave of Marvel Cinematic Universe figures with a build-a-figure of M'Baku.


Packaging 4/5

The 2nd wave of Black Panther figures retains the design of the original wave with a gold Panther Head backing for the figures, a blue name strip and a blue and gold theme to the side artwork panels.

There is a change to the rear of the packaging with the promotional image of the figures now replaced with an illustration from the movie. While this looks great, it is a shame to lose all images of the figure from the box. Even the BAF checklist now uses movie images and not the figures.

"After the death of his father T'Chaka, T'Challa must assume the Black Panther mantle as the next king of Wakanda."

Black Panther sits in an inner tray and is held in place only by the design of the insert with no ties or bands. An alternative head sits to one side, while the arm of M'Baku sits underneath this.
