The World of Epi is set to introduce a highly detailed line of collectible dolls based on iconic Marvel Studios characters. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Dr. Lisa Williams and multicultural doll pioneer World of EPI authentically designed the Fresh Dolls Fierce collection in collaboration with Marvel to bring the strong, powerful, and brilliant warrior characters from the film to life.
Series I is slated for release in October and includes 11.5-inch poseable collectible dolls based on main characters Shuri, Okoye, and Nakia. Created with great attention to detail, these dolls feature striking character likenesses, custom blended skin tones, authentic and one-of-a-kind innovative hairstyles, intricate fashions, and replica playable battle accessories. World of EPI is the first to mass-produce natural locs hairstyles, worn by Nakia in the film.
“The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever The Fresh Dolls celebrate the bright and powerful characters of Wakanda Warrior and bring their distinct attributes to life in an authentic way,” said Dr. Lisa Williams, Founder of World of PPE. “Together, we can ensure that black and brown children everywhere can embrace their individuality, build their confidence and foster their imaginations during positive play. It is imperative that children of all ethnicities grow up seeing a true representation of their beauty in the dolls they play with.
Each 11.5-inch doll has multiple points of articulation to recreate the poses and action of the warriors from the movie. They wear a stunning outfit inspired by the beautiful and intricate costumes from the film, and come with their own signature accessory.
