Wakanda Forever. Jesse Hernandez brings his stylized Urban Aztec aesthetic to the Black Panther with a new vinyl art toy bust from Unruly Industries. Hernandez has infused big cat elements into T’Challa’s vibranium suit from the ring of claws on the forehead and the teeth inset into the mask to the paw outlines on the shoulders. The mix of turquoise blue, silver and gray evoke a predator on the prowl in the dark of night. This is Hernandez’s latest design in a series of busts celebrating iconic heroes drawn from the Marvel and Star Wars universes.
