Black Panther Toys Reveal Erik Killmonger’s Golden Panther Costume
Here’s an interesting look at the Golden Panther costumer aka Golden Jaguar for Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger in the upcoming film Marvel’s Black Panther.
Details are very scarce but what we know so far for Black Panther is that Erik Killmonger here will be vying for the right to become the leader of fictional Wakanda. And it’s this claim to the throne that sets him at odds with the current Black Panther and the current ruler of Wakanda, Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa.
We’ve see several moments in the Black Panther trailer where the two are what seems to be in a gladiatorial match. It’s assumed that at a later point in the story, the Fruitvale Station and Creed star will be getting his own Black Panther armor.
Thanks to the toys from HasCon, we get our first look at Erik Killmonger’s own “Black Panther” armor featuring a gold collar and bands…
There’s also a 6-inch figure still featuring Killmonger and the ‘Golden Jaguar’ costume plus some nifty weapons to boot. First we get to look at is the Killmonger figure in it’s packaged form.
And here’s the Erik Killmonger Golden Jaguar costume out of the packaging..
I’m hearing the blue things are what visually represents a higher form of vibranium. Sadly, we don’t have details for the costume. Even people who actually got to talk to the Black Panther cast had zilch over the costume or the hows and wheres as well.
