LEGO Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sets aren’t entirely accurate
The LEGO Marvel sets for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever can now be compared to the Marvel Studios film, revealing a mixed level of accuracy.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now in cinemas worldwide so it’s time to see how accurate the LEGO models are to the source material. Those who haven’t seen the film are advised to click away now to avoid spoilers as it’s going to be hard to avoid them in this article.
With three builds of varying sizes for the Black Panther sequel, let’s see how they compare to their respective scene, if any.
3 – 76211 Shuri’s Sunbird
Price: £44.99 / $49.99 / 49.99 Pieces: 355 Minifigures: 4 Available: Now
76211 Shuri’s Sunbird doesn’t appear to be based on any one scene in the film and the presence of an oil rig on the box art suggests that a scene from the film was cut or changed in production.
While the Sunbird vehicle is included in several moments throughout the movie, the minifigure selection includes characters from the final battle and the confrontation on the bridge, so it appears to be a mixed bag rather than being based on any one scene.
2 – 76213 King Namor’s Throne Room
Price: £29.99 / $34.99 / €34.99 Pieces: 355 Minifigures: 3 Available: Now
76213 King Namor’s Throne Room is close to being accurate, to an extent. The throne closely matches what can be found in the film but there are no scenes where it and the included Wakandan submersible are in the same place. Instead, it is used to rescue Riri and Shuri by Nakia.
However, if the submersible had been replaced with a brick-built diving suit, you could have argued that this set is instead based on Namor’s tour of Talokan. As it stands, 76213 King Namor’s Throne Room’s individual aspects are very accurate but together, it’s another mixed bag.
1 – 76214 Black Panther: War on the Water
Price: £79.99 / $89.99 / €89.99 Pieces: 545 Minifigures: 5 Available: Now
The largest LEGO Marvel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever model – 76214 Black Panther: War on the Water – is the most accurate of the trio with much of the model and minifigure selection matching the final battle of the sequel.
However, another Talocan warrior to battle the Wakandans could have been included and the two included drones don’t appear in the battle. Despite that, it’s still accurate to the finale of the film.
