2018 will be a big year for Marvel as toy manufacturer Hot Toys is set to reveal a ton of new action figures later this year.

Many of the action figures will be based on characters that appear in the Black Panther movie.

Hot Toys made the announcement earlier today on its official Facebook page. You can read the full written statement posted down below.

It's gonna be another remarkable year for Marvel as we are expecting so much more to come! Arriving shortly, you are about to see some magnificent collectible figures inspired by the upcoming blockbuster Black Panther!

This is just the beginning. Get hype and stay with us for more Marvelious announcements about the never-before-seen ALL-STAR LINEUP from the most epic Marvel blockbuster after Black Panther!

As you can see from the picture posted above, it shows you a preview of what the Black Panther figurine looks like. With this announcement, more characters from the movie are also going to get the Hot Toys treatment.

Black Panther is not the only Marvel Studios movie out this year.

Avengers: Infinity War comes next and then after that is Ant-Man and the Wasp. We can be sure Hot Toys will be releasing a toy based on Thanos so you can have a great villain in your collection.

It remains to be seen if Hot Toys will be making figurines based on New Mutants, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2. Hopefully they do since those three movies should include characters that were never put on the big screen before.

Anyway, Black Panther is the first comic book movie out this year as it will be released in North America on February 16th, 2018. Will you be purchasing merchandise from the film?
