The parts selection is impressive for a set at this price. Lots of various bricks, plates, and oddities for your money. The Figure selection exceeds the standard for this price point too. I just wish more detail would've went into them.
Out of the two Black Panther sets, this one has the most material seen in the trailers. The Royal Talon Fighter will surely be valuable to T'Challa, as well as the inclusion of both main bad guys and T'Challa's girlfriend/bodyguard. Killmonger's Tribal Mask is AWESOME, but his Vibranium suit will be more sought after.
Build Experience: 5/10
The main build can be simplified as a rectangle with a bunch of fins on it. Lego did a good job with it, it definitely captures the look well, while using less stickers than the Rhino. The only intentive and unique feature of the construction is that the Fighter leans forward and has Technic connected fins across both side of it.
The Royal Talon Fighter has adjustable minor fins and two stud shooters. One thing I was impressed with was the use of interior space for this build. There is room for w pilot and passenger, as well as two prisoners in the cell area. Killmonger will have to have his mask removed when taken prisoner though.
Overall Rating: 7.25/10
This set captures the look and feel of the vehicle well and includes a host of must have characters for the movie, but falls short on playability. Its substance lay in owning Black Panther's jet and a group of main characters, but it won't be your most prized and interactive vehicle.
