The 2018 release of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) Black Panther left a permanent mark on Marvel fans’ hearts. In celebration of the movie’s legacy, collectible manufacturer Sideshow has announced two new statues that pay homage to the film’s central character.

The Black Panther 1:4 Statue measures approximately 26.5 inches and is sculpted from polystone. The statue depicts T’Challa in his iconic on-screen vibranium panther suit, standing on a piece of Wakandan architecture portraying the panther goddess Bast, and gazing into the distance. The statue comes with two heads, T’Challa in his Black Panther mask and an unmasked variant.

The Black Panther Designer Vinyl Collectible Bust, on the other hand, puts an Urban Aztec twist on the character. This upper-body bust depicts T’Challa flexing his suit’s claws in a Wakandan salute. The suit itself is reimagined in the Urban Aztec style – patterns that are a “combination of graffiti and ancient indigenous culture” – and glows when displayed under blacklight.

Fans can preorder both of these collectibles on Sideshow’s website.
