Black Panther, the first Marvel Studios film of 2018. will take us deeper into the world of Wakanda. Diamond Select Toys will be along for the ride with a variety of collectibles, including new Marvel Minimates, Marvel Gallery PVC dioramas and a new Marvel Select action figure.

First up, the Black Panther Minimates will see the release of two assortments of 2-packs, plus a box set, with exclusive characters at three retail locations:


At Walgreens, an assortment of four 2-packs will include:
– Black Panther & M’Baku

In the Marvel Gallery line, two new PVC dioramas will capture the hero and villain of the film, Black Panther and Killmonger (to be revealed). Each will stand approximately 9 inches tall, and when placed together, they can face off in a battle inspired by the film. Packaged in full color window boxes, they are in scale to other figures in the Gallery and Femme Fatales PVC lines, and both were sculpted by Rocco Tartamella. Look for these dioramas to release in the spring at comic shops and specialty stores.


Finally, the king of Wakanda joins the Marvel Select action figure line, allowing you to recreate the action of the movie. This 7-inch scale action figure of T’Challa features 16 points of articulation, and comes packaged with a diorama combining Wakanda’s technology and rocky terrain. It will come packaged in the famous Select action figure packaging, with side-panel artwork for easy shelf reference, and it was sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios.
