We hate to let you down, so we won’t! We’re back with an all-new Toy News Tuesday! We’re the one weekly column right here on ScienceFiction.com where we seek out all of the awesome news you need to know about any announcements and cool happenings in the toy industry and put them all in one easy to find place for you! Well, if you’re reading this, you’ve survived yet another Black Friday, which is worth celebrating! The one major downside to Black Friday weekend though is that it’s an incredibly light time for news. Still, we’ve managed to find some of the best tidbits of the week and compiled them together into the Toy News for the week of November 27th, 2018!
This week Marvel fans are getting a better look at an all new wave of 6″ Marvel Legends figures from Hasbro based on the smash hit ‘Black Panther’ film from earlier this year! We think it goes without saying that Hasbro underestimated just how popular ‘Black Panther’ was going to be when planning out their toylines, so they’re doubling back and bringing us a whole new wave of figures based on characters from the film! Included in the new wave are Vibranium Black Panther, T’Chaka Black Panther, Tactical Erik Killmonger, Ulysses Klaue, Dora Milaje (with three alternative heads so you can army build!) and a basic Black Panther movie figure! If you buy the whole wave you can build your very own M’Baku figure! These are due out in Spring 2019! Check them out below!
