EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

This Vibranium Power FX Claw is the weapon of choice for Black Panther, and it's obvious from the decor. All along the exterior of the claw are fine molded patterns, simulating either interwoven vibranium fibers, or simply aesthetic flourishes. Looks are this toy's greatest asset. The claw is molded in black with bright silver paint apps and soft rubbery metallic gray knuckles. At the ends of each finger are translucent claws, and on the back of the hand, you'll find a purple button to activate the light and sound features.

Demonstration batteries are included, so while you'll be able to open and play, you'll want to replace the batteries before too long. Adjust the wrist strap, grip the handle and you're ready for battle. It's a little uncomfortable, but also, my hands are probably a bit bigger than what the designers had in mind. Press the aforementioned button to activate the sound features. Swing the claw quickly to get attacking sounds. You really have to swing it fast in order to get this feature to work, so be mindful of your surroundings. Make contact with a surface and press lightly down for some sick metal scratching noises. This also makes your claws glow orange, simulating friction heat. Super cool.

Is It Fun?

Despite the difficulty in triggering the motion-activated sounds, this is still a fun role-play toy. The scratching sounds and glowing claws are just too awesome!

Who It’s For

The Vibranium Power FX Claw is great for young heroes age 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

- You can activate sounds by either swiping the claw in the air, or dragging the claws across a surface. The motion-activated sounds require a strong movement to trigger, so be careful of your surroundings while playing.

- Demo batteries are included.
