The World of EPI is set to introduce a detailed line of collectible dolls based on the characters from Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Dr. Lisa Williams, founder, World of EPI, designed the Fresh Dolls Fierce collection in collaboration with Marvel to bring the warrior characters from Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” to life.
Series I is slated to hit retail this October, in advance of the film release on Nov. 11, and features 11.5” articulated collectible dolls based on lead characters Shuri, Okoye and Nakia. Created with attention to detail, these dolls feature custom-blended skin tones, authentic and first-of-its-kind hairstyles, detailed fashions and replica playable battle accessories in the likeness of each character. Each 11.5” doll has multiple points of articulation to recreate warrior poses and action from the movie.
“The ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Fresh Dolls celebrate the brilliant and empowering Wakanda warrior characters and authentically bring their distinct attributes to life,” says Dr. Williams. “Together, we can ensure Black and Brown children everywhere can embrace their individuality, build their confidence and foster imagination during positive play. It’s imperative that children of all ethnicities grow up seeing a true representation of their beauty in the dolls they play with.”
