Marvel’s latest superhero is making his solo big screen debut, but before Black Panther (aka King T’Challa) takes us on a tour of Wakanda, it’s time to grab a few goodies to celebrate the film. Right now, Fandango is giving away a free poster with every ticket purchase to see Black Panther. Check showtimes below.

Now, finding the right merch would seem like a simple task given the marketing machine behind Marvel properties but there’s quite a lot to sift through given the marketing machine behind Marvel. Go figure.

So we’ve gone ahead and cherrypicked some of the best stuff out there just for you.

1. Funko POP! Black Panther Keychain

Take Black Panther with you everywhere you go with this pint-sized keychain of the King T’Challa clad in his suit of armor.

2. Funko POP! Black Panther Vinyl Figures

Not everyone loves the protagonist, which is why Funko POP!’s set of vinyl figures (sold individually) is so attractive. Pick between Black Panther, Black Panther in Warrior Falls grab, Erik “the bad guy” Killmonger, Princess Shuri, and Dora Milaje operative, Nakia.

3. Black Panther Claw Pendant Necklace

Inspired by T’Challa’s suit of black armor and cat-like qualities comes this stainless steel double claw pendant necklace. The lariat style necklace hangs on a 30-inch chain with claws coated in black PVD.

7. Black Panther Life Size Cardboard Standup

8. Black Panther Sneakers

They may not have the sound-proof, undetectable qualities of Shuri’s “sneakers” (get it?) from the film, but these black and gray high-tops do feature a super comfortable lightweight construction, and a super earth-friendly vegan leather material. The shoes are unisex. A size 8 men’s will fit a size 10 in women’s, etc.

9. Black Panther Zip-Up Hoodie

It may look like any other black zip-up hoodie but this one from ThinkGeek features faux leather sleeves and kangaroo pouch, as well as glossy black prints of a panther head across the back and chest.
