Sen-Ti-Nel might have been the first to do this whole “Tony Stark makes Iron Man suits for the other Avengers” thing, but I have to say, Tamashii Nations does it better with their choice to make the armors actually look different. That said, Sen-Ti-Nel does still make cool-looking pieces for their Fighting Armor line, and Black Panther over here is definitely one.
As I mentioned earlier, the figure clearly shares a lot of parts from the first Iron Man release, but it does have the nuances of Black Panther’s design, most notably the diamond-shaped fang-like decorative pieces on its chest. The same design also carries to the Arc Reactor piece, further completing the look. Both arms and legs also have these blades that give accents to an otherwise monotonous armor.
Outside of the included display stand and replacement hand parts, Black Panther comes with a spear that mimics the Vibranium Spear he uses in the comic books. On that note, I don’t think the whole suit is made from Vibranium either, but then again, there’s no fiction that accompanies this figure so you can imagine away.
