The Figures

Here we have Miles Morales Spider-man; on the left is the Walmart Exclusive from back in 2012, and on the right is from the Space Venom BAF Wave in 2016.

The Walmart Miles comes with a figure stand and a clip-on web shield, and the Space Venom Miles comes with 3 pairs of hands and an alternate unmasked head.

These two figures are on a completely different body mold, with the Walmart Miles being in the early Hasbro era of using that sort of body mold, and the Space Venom Miles being a new ‘teenager’ body mold (which Hasbro subsequently reused plenty of times, as usual lol).

Differences

The Walmart miles is slightly taller, and has a more muscular body mold as the torso is a retool of the Toybiz Bullseye body (which was used plenty of time by Toybiz and subsequently Hasbro too). The shoulder muscles are really oversized; Miles is nowhere that muscular in the comics.

The design on the torso is similar, but the Space Venom Miles’ design is stretches out further down the torso. The web design also goes over the shoulders on Space Venom Miles, and to me, it looks better than the Walmart Miles.

The spider logo at the back is almost exactly the same in design, but different in size.

You can barely see the Walmart Miles’ neck because the shoulder muscles are really big lol.

I prefer the head sculpt on the Space Venom Miles too; the web lines on the head are more evenly apart and the eyes are better sized with the thicker red border on it, just like in the comics.

The Walmart Miles’ eyes are big and the web lines are not evenly apart; the top half of the head has the web lines further apart than the bottom half of the head.

There’s also that circular thing at the nose area of the Walmart Miles that looks awkward to me, lol.

The knees on Walmart Miles protrude quite a bit as if its swollen, and even though he has muscular and big torso, his feet are smaller lol. Look at that difference in size compared to Space Venom Miles.

The unmasked Miles head looks great to me. He has a smiley expression.

The head can’t be swapped to the Walmart Miles as the Walmart Miles has a different head peg.

Here’s the clip-on web shield. Miles never had any sort of shield on the comics lol. Such a gimmick accessory thrown in by early Hasbro. Thank goodness Hasbro doesn’t do that anymore.

Here are some size comparison with other figures. Both Miles scale decently well with the Retro Spidey and Pizza Spidey. They also scale well with the female teenage body mold in the form of Spider-girl.

80th Anniversary Captain America looking a good size bigger, as he should be.

Here’s a comparison with MCU Iron Spider, since he’s a teenager too lol.

Articulation wise, both have about the same points of articulation, except that the Walmart Miles has shoulder butterfly joints, and ball hip joints.

Besides that, their points of articulation are the same, except that the range of movement on the Space Venom head is better than the Walmart Miles’ head.

TL;DR

Miles Morales Spider-man (Walmart Exclusive):

+ Costumes design accurate to the comics

– Overly muscular for a teenage body (not accurate to Miles’ physique in the comics)

– Small feet

– No alternate hands, comes with web shield which Miles never used in the comics

– Eyes are too wide and big (not comic accurate)

Miles Morales Spider-man (Space Venom BAF Wave):

+ Comes with 3 pairs of hands (wall-crawling, web-shooting and fists) and an unmasked Miles head

+ Costume design accurate to comics

+ Body physique follows the appearance of Miles in the comic

My Verdict

*Miles flexing on Ultimate Spider-woman lol.

Between these two, I definitely prefer the Space Venom Miles. He’s better proportioned, and not to mention that the alternate hands and head are really great.

This Walmart Miles was quite sought after as he was the only Miles figure we had for a few years before the Space Venom Miles was released. Don’t think anyone would be bothered to get this Walmart Miles anymore lol.

“Aye-aye Captain?”

“Shield buddies?”
