Hot Toys Continue to Amaze with Black Panther’s Shuri.
At SDCC last month Hot Toys revealed a lot of new product from the MCU, Star Wars etc. One of the many highlights from their show was Black Panther’s Shuri.
I currently don’t have any Hot Toys figures but they look very impressive and Shuri is no exception. I’ve seen the film and there are many fantastic costume designs and Hot Toys are really taking advantage of this to release some truly fantastic figures.
I have to say Shuri looks absolutely perfect. She’s wearing her armor that she wore in the final act of the film and it looks stunning. All the details and intricacies of the costume and makeup are intact and she looks amazing. The jumpsuit and sash look incredible, It’s tailored very well. Especially the sash with the silver buckle and intricate pattern looks outstanding.
The likeness of Letitia Wright is spot on, even though her facial expression is a stoic it’s still very emotive. The hair sculpt is incredible as well and it looks incredibly lifelike as you can see all the braids perfectly sculpted and the decoration as well. The pattern at the back of her head looks fantastic too.
Accessory wise she comes with a spear, Kimyo Beads Bracelet and her Vibranium Gauntlets which actually lights up using blue LED lights. They are fantastic accessories with the highlight being the Gauntlets.
She also comes seven interchangeable hands a pair of fists, a pair of relaxing hands, gripping hands and a gesture right hand. As well as a display base with the film logo printed on it. The fists are primarily for the gauntlets and the gripping hands for the spear.
Shuri is 11.5 inches tall and features 28 points of articulation and will be released in late 2019.
This figure looks absolutely outstanding. The sculpt, paint and tailoring alone is amazing. This figure would really pop in your Black Panther display or Hot Toys display. It’s an absolute must-have if you’re a fan of the character and the film.
