We're still a few months out from the release of Black Panther, but a new line of action figures from the Marvel Studios movie showcases some pretty cool outfits.

For one thing, villain Erik Killmonger is sporting a Black Panther suit with a golden vibranium weave, very much in line with the Panther suit from the comics. According to Comic Book Movie (who got the images from Yahoo! Movies), the word is that Killmonger (played by Michael B. Jordan) will don this suit for a climactic battle against T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman):

But the Wakandan ruler has a few new duds of his own, including a suit with some kind of blue, electric-looking weaving through it:

The new pics also showcase T'Challa's traditional outfit, a new look for T'Challa's sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), and some of the weaponry associated with each of the characters. All the images can be seen over at Yahoo! Movies

From its casting to its production design to its first intense trailer, we're getting nothing but positive vibes about Black Panther. While these are just action figures, they continue to emphasize what is hopefully the cool and unique aesthetic of the entire project. What do you think of it all? 

Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Boseman, Jordan, Wright, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. It's out in theaters on February 16, 2018.
