With Spider-Man, both Peter and Miles, being in the spotlight currently, we thought you may want to get yourself a new action figure of the webslinger for your collection. We’ve curated some of the best Spider-Man action figures from various adaptations to ensure that there’s something for everyone. However, there are some alternate universe Spideys on this list as well.

Spider-Man Advanced Suit Hot Toys Action Figure

Authentic down to the last strand

Let’s start things out with the video game version of Spider-Man in his Advanced Suit. This 12-inch Hot Toys action figure uses real fabric over the action figure to make it look as authentic as possible. It also comes with a number of accessories and gadgets that were seen in Insomniac’s first Spider-Man game. As you’d expect, it costs a pretty penny.

Pros

  • Use of real fabric hides joints and make the figure look highly authentic.
  • Numerous accessories and alternate parts.
  • Alternate eye-lenses allow for in-depth customisation.

Since everyone’s already talking about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, our first entry is Hot Toys’ take on Peter’s Advanced Suit. This one needs a bit of investment, but it is highly detailed, and looks lifelike thanks to the use of real fabric for the suit, as it hides all the joints. It also offers a large variety of accessories based on Spidey’s abilities and upgrades in the first game.

GamerVerse Spider-Man Marvel Legends Action Figure

Same suit, great price

However, if you want to go for something that won’t cost a kidney, the Marvel Legends line by Hasbro also has an Advanced Suit action figure. This figure is sleek, highly articulated, and comes with alternate hand gestures and webbing designs. As part of the GamerVerse line, this figure is highly detailed and looks exactly like Pete’s Suit from Insomniac’s first Spider-Man game.

Pros

  • Highly articulated and posable.
  • Comes with a number of accessories.
  • Can be posed exactly like game cover.

While the Hot Toys action figure will burn a hole through your pocket, this Hasbro one will let you have a highly articulated version of Spidey’s Advanced Suit on your shelf for a fraction of the cost. This is the action figure you want if you’re a fan of the Insomniac video games, and you also plan on eating for the next two months.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Miles Morales

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Miles Morales

Got a minute?

2023 is more about Miles Morales than Peter Parker, given that he’s co-starring in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and was the lead in Across the Spider-Verse. This Marvel Legends action figure depicts Miles’ avatar from the movie, including his new and improved suit as well as his fresh hairstyle. It also comes with alternate hand gestures and an unmasked alternate head.

Pros

  • Great likeness to the movie version.
  • Head can be swapped out for an unmasked version.
  • Includes hip articulation unlike many other action figures.

Miles has been the spotlight Spider-Man this year, given the smashing success of Across the Spider-Verse and also that he’ll probably have to save Peter from the symbiote in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Where Miles was an understudy in the movie and game prequels, he is now a Spider-Man who can stand on his own two feet and do the heavy lifting when needed.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Cyborg Spider-Woman

Mad Max: Spidey Road

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse treated us to hundreds of different Spider-Men from all over the multiverse. While not part of the main crew, Cyborg Spider-Woman was one of the stand-out Spideys, especially during the huge chase sequence where Miles tries to escape Miguel O’Hara and legions of other Spider-People. The fact that she’s massive and has a cannon for a right hand may have something to do with it.

Pros

  • Highly detailed armour and cannon hand.
  • Based on a fan-favourite character.
  • Has a massive cannon for a right hand.
Cons

  • Not too many points of articulation.

In a multiverse of infinite possibilities, of course there’s a version of Spider-Man that looks like they belong in Mad Max. Cyborg Spider-Woman is part machine and isn’t afraid to use that huge cannon, even if it’s against some poor Spider Society newbie. She was one of the stand-out characters from the movie.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Spider-Punk

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Spider-Punk

Oi Oi!

Undoubtedly the coolest Spider-Man, Hobie, a.k.a. Spider-Punk, is Spidey if he was a Rage Against the Machine superfan. With his give-a-damn attitude and anti-establishment views, he quickly became everyone’s favourite secondary character from Into the Spider-Verse. Naturally, this action figure comes with the trademark guitar and devil horns hand gesture. If only it included an unmasked alternate head too.

Pros

  • Comes with the guitar and devil-horns hand gesture.
  • Just so damn cool.
Cons

  • No unmasked alternate head.

Hobie is arguably the coolest Spidey in all the Spider-Verse. Whether it’s just how great his suit is, what he fights against, or just the fact that he looks cooler without the mask, he was easily a fan-favourite from the start. Unfortunately, we don’t get an unmasked version – maybe it was just too cool for the manufacturers.

Tamashii Nations MCU Iron Spider

Activate instant kill!

For the MCU fans, this version of Spider-man is the one we see in Avengers Endgame. It features the Iron Spider suit with the trademark spider legs coming out from the back. This Tamashii Nation action figure is highly detailed with numerous points of articulation, and is a great prize for any MCU Spider-Man fan.

Pros

  • Highly detailed and articulated.
  • Features numerous accessories and alternate pieces.
  • Best MCU Spider-Man suit.

This is the suit that Spider-Man goes to when dealing with Thanos-level threats. Yes, it was Iron Man who made the suit and had it sent to him, but it’s easily Peter’s strongest suit. That being said, Tamashii Nations does an excellent job of detailing it and bringing it to life.
