New LEGO Marvel keyring changes design of Black Panther minifigure

A new LEGO Marvel keyring has appeared on the official online store, changing the design of the LEGO Black Panther minifigure. 

Accompanying the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sets on October 1, 2022, will be 854189 Black Panther Keyring – the latest accessory depicting a minifigure that can join you in your daily life while attached to your keys, bag and more.

By itself, it’s not quite as exciting as the three Black Panther: Wakanda Forever models coming next month, reusing the same Black Panther minifigure that appeared in 76204 Black Panther mech Armour. 

However, there’s a key difference between this new keyring and other Black Panther minifigures. While other iterations of the character depict the ears as facing backwards, the keyring has them pointed forwards. In this position, they resemble horns like those used for Daredevil’s outfit in 76178 Daily Bugle

It seems likely that this is a mistake, though it suggests that this is how the ears will be positioned in 854189 Black Panther Keyring.  

Considering that the upcoming Black Panther minifigure in 76212 Shuri’s Lab has them pointed backwards, this may not be a permanent change to future Black Panther minifigures. 

854189 Black Panther Keyring will cost £4.99 / $5.99 / €5.99 and launch on October 1.
