The closer we get to May 6th, the more promos, features, tie-ins, and collectibles we will see spotlighting the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Over the past few weeks, Hot Toys, often in partnership with Sideshow Collectibles, has been revealing a number of Marvel collectible figures, such as Deadpool, Captain America, Iron Man, and more! They have also debuted pretty much every character seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron in the last year.
Their latest offering is on the Wakandan king T’Challa, also known as the Black Panther. Portrayed by Chadwick Boseman in the upcoming sequel, Hot Toys has gone to great lengths to capture the essence of the character and the look which will be seen next month and the future standalone Black Panther film.
Though not scheduled to be made available until between the fourth quarter of 2016 (Oct.-Dec.) and first quarter of 2017 (Jan.-Mar.), hopefully this bad boy can be filled for all those having it on their holiday wish list. Here is the official description from Hot Toys:

Storyline of Captain America: Civil War, courtesy of IMDB.com:
After another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps, one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
