'Black Panther': Exclusive sneak peek at Marvel movie's tie-in toys

Yahoo Movies

It’s been three long months since the breathtaking Black Panther trailer debuted, showcasing Chadwick Boseman‘s solo superhero outing, which hits theaters Feb. 16, 2018. Since then, we’ve had extremely limited looks at the anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe entry, having to settle for a tantalizing action scene at San Diego Comic-Con along with a handful of costumes and props. But today, Yahoo Movies exclusively unveils the upcoming line of toys — which offer a few clues to the film.

Next spring, Hasbro will release a slew of Panther-themed playthings, from action figures of varying magnitude to role-play items that let fans channel their inner Wakanda warrior. The toys give us a glimpse of Michael B. Jordan‘s villainous Erik Killmonger costume, tease the Panther’s upgraded Vibranium-powered supersuit, and also provide a sneak peek at the hero’s shape-shifting vehicle, the Panther Jet. The toys will be publicly debuted at Hascon, Hasbro’s inaugural convention covering all its lines, including Star Wars, Marvel, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony, which runs Friday to Sunday in Providence, R.I. In the meantime, click through to get a taste of Black Panther.
