Marvel Basic Series - SHURI!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Shuri & Vibranium Blast Sunbird - Hasbro 2022

Don't worry, no real spoilers. I just saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever earlier tonight and I loved it. The legacy characters that I felt didn't get a chance to shine in the first movie all got their moments, and the new characters introduced were all perfection. Best of all, I felt that the 161-minute runtime allowed for more of Wakanda to be featured as well as the Dora Milaje (both things I felt didn't get enough lingering focus in the first movie). An amusing takeaway was that I think Hasbro could easily fill another whole Marvel Legends wave with great looking characters. At there very least there could be a few more 2-packs. This Basic Series Shuri figure was one of the first pieces of merchandise released for the movie. There is a second "Battle Action" basic series figure of her in stores as well, but her arms are awkwardly re-posed. But this one with the Sunbird vehicle is a classically-posed, simply-posed figure like we used to see with every MCU film. Let's check out Shuri below!

The Sunbird vehicle has wings that can be placed forward or pulled-back. Also there is a button on the side of the circular rotor that will launch the blue discs. This is the type of vehicle that flaps and hovers like a dragonfly. It's a shame there isn't an action feature to mimic that motion.

Shuri features 5 simple points of articulation.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Shuri with her Titan Hero Series figure.

And here she is with 2018 Basic Series figure from the first Black Panther movie.
