T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure: Hot Toys’ Regal Depiction of the OG Black PantherMarch 12, 2019
Hot Toys’ T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure is a screen-accurate recreation of Wakanda’s former ruler and a must-have addition to the personal realms of dedicated Black Panther fans.
Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series is known for collectibles that boast consistently jaw-dropping fidelity and the company’s line-up of pieces inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe are certainly worthy of that lofty pedigree. The T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure joins other figures based on 2018’s Black Panther film, including T’Challa as the titular alter ego and his formidable nemesis, Erik Killlmonger.
The T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure stands out as one of Hot Toys’ 2018 Toy Fair Exclusives. Beyond that distinction, the piece boasts the requisite level of detail that discerning collectors have come to expect from the company’s high-end action figures. The figure stands 12 inches tall and features a brawny commanding build with over 30 points of articulation.
The centerpiece of Hot Toys’ TChaka Sixth Scale Figure is the painstakingly detailed costume. The helmet is impressively realized with authentic contours and gold accents, although not removable. The figure’s tailored black body suit is even more remarkable. The suit features authentic textures, gold accents and has the added benefit of hiding the elbow and shoulder joints. Other fabric components include a multi-colored Wakandan tribal sash, a matching waist garment, as well as knee-length trousers and utility straps.
While the Hot Toys T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure doesn’t come with an overflowing trove of accessories, what’s there has been faithfully rendered. The figure comes with three pairs of gloved hands (fists, and open palms with and without claws extended) and a faux-Kimoyo bead bracelet. Rounding out the set is a two-piece hexagonal display stand with the Black Panther symbol etched on the platform and the movie logo and name of the former king emblazoned on the surface.
Hot Toys’ T’Chaka Sixth Scale Figure released as a Sideshow Collectibles exclusive in December 2018 at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $220 USD.
