New Black Panther figure strikes a pose at Madame Tussauds New York
Black Panther, member of the Avengers and king of Wakanda, has just been unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York, keeping watch against the New York City skyline, just as he did over his kingdom.
Inspired by the iconic movie poster advertising Marvel’s “Black Panther” film, Madame Tussauds New York has created a new T’Challa figure, based on the king of the fictional county, Wakanda, striking a pose in his famous vibranium suit.
“We worked closely with the amazing team at Madame Tussauds to bring to life the Black Panther suit that fans know and love from the Marvel Studios films,” said Brian Crosby, creative director for Marvel Themed Entertainment. “The detail really is stunningly accurate and we’re sure that it will be a hit with Marvel fans young and old.”
Leading film industry special effects costumer providers, FBFX, helped design the suit, which includes a built-in “vibranium effect” that infuses the suit with kinetic energy, causing it to light up with a distinctive purple glow when guests interact with it.
Black Panther joins a host of other Marvel super heroes, including Captain America, Thor, Nick Fury, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, The Hulk, and Spider Man, along with Tony Stark’s Mark XLIV Armor, better known as “The Hulkbuster” from the movie, “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
As an add-on to Madame Tussaud’s standard admission, visitors can purchase tickets for the new Marvel Universe 4D film, immersing viewers in a special-effects filled battle between galactic guardians and trickster Loki in a bid to save the world.
Wax Museum admission is $36.99 per person, and $43.99 with the 4D film. A 10% discount is available when booking online.
Guests visiting the venue are encouraged to purchase tickets and review safety protocols before arrival. Those age 12 and up must show proof they have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination to enter.
