With the sequel to the 2018 Black Panther film hitting theaters this November, it comes as no surprise that new LEGO® sets based on the movie are hitting shelves. In fact, we’ve reported on several already due on October 1. While those were Minifigure based sets, today’s announcement of a new movie tie-in is geared more to adults. A life-sized Black Panther bust is coming soon. The bust features the late Chadwick Boseman’s version of T’Challa.
The official press release describes the set as follows:
The LEGO Marvel Black Panther set represents a life-size bust of the iconic superhero and can be positioned in either the distinctive “Wakanda Forever” crossed arm pose – or without. It is the perfect piece to display in your home to show your love for LEGO building, and the iconic character of Black Panther/T’Challa.

I have not collected any of the bust/helmet sets we’ve seen over the last couple of years. They are not my style. With limited display space, I have no where to keep them. However, the detail on Black Panther’s mask in this set is impressive, even for me. I think I prefer the model without the hands in front… something strikes me as off about the hands. It is neat that designers included both display options. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
