The figure it self is 1 of 7,500 made. I kind of wished that it was still in the box, but since I purchased it loose, I wanted to customize it and make it one of a kind. T'Challa is glossy black molded plastic. He has a flexible head from left to right, flexible arms,legs and feet.
He wears a full length Leather duster with short leather cape, tuned up collar on the coat. I call this the "Coat of Arms" because it is loaded with an inside holster holding a Desert Eagle semi-automatic pistol with three extra clips, He also has a 9mm Baretta as back up with three extra clips. The strap for the clips are sewn to each sleeve of the coat for easy access.The 9mm is strapped to his left thigh. The coat of arms also has attached in it's compartments two of those laser knives.I don't remember the correct name for them. I saw that he used them in the graphic novel "The Client". So you know I had to make them. In the back of his coat under the cape is a compartment for a police baton. He carries it like a samuri sword.
He also has sewn into the coat a strap for 3 shells for his bazooka, which he carries in a army duffle bag along with an M-16 and a sniper's riffle. BP also comes equipped with an attache case with all sorts of built in Hi-Tech goodies.I actually barrowed this concept from the "Punisher" and "The Bat Man".
I figured since Bat Man had a utility belt, what could I do to make Black Panther just as equipped for urban and jungle warfare. My next venture to complete this concept of the Black panther is to get him a Hi-Tech vehicle. I'm thinking some type of motorcycle. I'll modify and customize it, Black Pantherize it.
The only paint used is on his eyes.
