$249.99 $349.99?* / £299.99. VIP Early Access has a date set for November 4th, 2022, and then November 9th, 2022 for everyone else. That will give you just enough time to build it before the premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 11th, 2022.
*The Press Release shows it as $249.99, but LEGO’s sales page lists it as $349.99. Whoopsie-doodle. I’m sure no one at all is going to get upset over that…
This is a “life-sized” bust of Black Panther, or so they claim. It looks a bit on the smallish side if you ask me ’cause you can’t tell me those hands are scaled 1:1 to an adult male’s hands.
The bust can be built with the hands up in the “distinctive “Wakanda Forever” sign with his hands” or displayed without them.

WAKANDA FOREVER! WITH THE NEW LEGO® MARVEL™ BLACK PANTHER™ SET
7th September 2022: Today, the LEGO® Group is excited to announce the new LEGO Marvel™ Black Panther™ set – celebrating one of the greatest superheroes of all time! Based on the character from the award-nominated blockbuster, the new set lets you immerse yourself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as you build Black Panther in brick form.
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.
The Black Panther character first appeared in 1966 in the Fantastic Four comic book, and was made ultra-popular with the release of the 2018 mega-hit film Black Panther, which truly solidified his place in popular culture, and inspired millions with his honour, pride, and courage.
In the much-loved film, Black Panther (King T’Challa) inherits the throne of the ultra-futuristic but secret African kingdom of Wakanda, which is powered by the alien metal of vibranium. When King T’Challa is challenged by the supervillain Killmonger for control of his nation, he must use his Black Panther superpowers of lightning-fast speed, brilliant ingenuity, and supreme fighting abilities to defeat his enemy, protect his country, and save the entire world. Now Marvel Studios have confirmed that the film’s sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is due out in cinemas on 11th November.
The LEGO® Marvel Black Panther set is available at the RRP of €249.99 / $249.99 / £299.99 exclusively for LEGO VIP members from 4th November 2022 and from LEGO Stores and www.lego.com/Black-Panther from 9th November 2022.
