The first new faction outside of the core box, the Wakandans burst into my MCP collection. Offering another great selection of sculpts, with one particularly annoying to put together.
First up is thier leader, the king of Wakanda himself…
A fairly simple sculpt that does a great job of personifying the Black Panther. It’s the dynamic pose that really makes this one stand out. That balled up energy, ready to pounce look is perfect.
Then we have his chief adversary…
Killmonger is a pretty bland mini to be honest. I love the touch of the panther statue but nothing else really makes him stand out.
Shuri looks great but is by far the most annoying yet to put together, nothing major if you have experience but some fiddly bits, looking at you gloves, are frustrating to say the least.
Another strong mini, but much like Killmonger it’s another that doesn’t stand out.
Saying that though I would like to revisit all of the additional characters to add some free hand. Some traditional African patterning could really add a bit of wow.
