Updated: Feb 11, 2023

Today we will be taking a look at Miles Morales from the Into the Spider-Verse animated movie. If you haven’t seen it yet I would suggest checking it out ASAP. This shows the story of Miles learning to become Spider-Man just after he got his powers and the death of his universe Spider-Man. The Marvel Legends Series is a lower-tier toy line that both collectors and non-collectors alike would be interested in. This is an action figure line based on the characters of Marvel Comics, initially produced by Toy Biz, then by Hasbro. This line is in the 6-inch (150 mm) scale, with spin-off lines in the 4-inch (100 mm), 8-inch (200 mm), and 12-inch (300 mm) scale. these figures tend to look good inside and outside the box.


PACKAGING: Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.

Spider-Man comes packed in the stranded Marvel Legends Series box. The top of the box has the Build-A-Figure logo, this wave is for Stilt-Man the Legends Series logo is right below it. Spider-Man is displayed in the middle through the large window that showcases the figure as well as the accessories. This gives great visibility to collectors that may not be opening it. On the bottom of the box, you have the Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse logo as this is a part of the movie’s line. On the left side of the box, we get some artwork of Miles with his mask off. On the back of the box, we have a picture of Spider-Man as well as a small bio as well as the rest of the figures you need to complete Stilt-Man. Flipping the box to the right side now, you see we get the same artwork again.


OUTSIDE OF THE BOX: Let's open the box and take a closer look at the figure.

Taking Spider-Man out of the box we get a really good look at him. We also get to see all the details they put into the figure. He really does look like he came right out of the movie.


ACCESSORIES: Let's see what kind of accessories the figure comes with.

Miles Spider-Man comes with, a Miles alt head, 2 fists, 2 web thwiping hands, and a Build-A-Figure piece.


ARTICULATION: How can we pose the figure? Let's find out!


BALL-HINGED SHOULDERS - Gives the arm 360-degree rotation and also the ability to raise and lower the arm.

SINGLE JOINTED ELBOWS - This allows you to bend the arm about 90 degrees.

SWIVEL BALL HINGE WRISTS This allows you to turn his wrists in a full 360-degree circle while also bending them up and down.

AB CRUNCH - This cut lets you be able to bend the figure front and back at the Abs.

WAIST SWIVEL - This lets you be able to turn the figure around 360 degrees at the waist.

BALL JOINTED LEGS - With this it allows the legs to move out to the side along with some front and back motion.

UPPER THIGH SWIVEL - The leg can rotate around a full 360 degrees.

DOUBLE-JOINTED KNEES - The joint allows you to bend the leg itself back to the butt of the figure.

SWIVEL JOINTED ANKLES - The ankle hinge allows you to bend the foot front and back and also to the left and right.


SIZE COMPARISON: How does the size of this figure compare to others?

Spider-Man stands right around 5.5 inches tall. Here is our new Miles Spider-Man with the older Miles and with the new Peter Spider-Man from the retro line.


RATING: What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?

PAINT JOB 5/5 - The paint job on this figure is very well done. He does look like he came right out of the movie

FIGURE SCULPT 5/5 - Same with the sculpt, it is very done that he looks like he stepped right off the screen

POSING 4/5 - Posing would be a little bit better if he had double-jointed elbows.

ACCESSORIES: 4/5 - Some open hands, so you could do the “Hey”, would have been nice.

DURABILITY 2/5 - Due to how skinny his legs are I do feel like the legs will snap at any time when I am moving him around and it does have me a little worried.

OVERALL SCORE 4/5 - The figure overall is really good, just a few small nitpicks.
