Here we have Miles Morales from Ultimate Spider-man comics. He’s originally from the Ultimate Universe in the comics, and first appeared around the time Peter Parker died in that universe. He has since grown in importance as a character and even stayed in the mainstream Earth-616 of the comics.

The first Marvel Legends version of Miles came out after the 2012 The Amazing Spider-man (Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker). The movie had a series of action figures and Miles Morales Spider-man was one of them. He comes with a clip-on web shield and a grey base (not pictured).

The second version came out in the Space Venom BAF Wave. The wave had both Ultimate Peter Parker Spider-man and Miles Morales Spider-man. Space Venom Miles comes with and unmasked head, and 3 pairs of hands; a pair of fists, web-shooting and wall-crawling hands.

You can see that they have completely different body mold. Walmart Spider-man was released in 2012 while Space Venom Spider-man was released in 2016.

Differences

The Walmart Spidey is taller and bulkier than the Space Venom Spidey. In the comics, Miles is actually younger than Ultimate Peter Parker who is 16 years old, so the smaller frame of the Space Venom Spidey suits him better.

Walmart Spidey looks like Miles hit the gym too often lol. The figure really have a buff physique.

One thing that doesn’t match for the Walmart Miles Spidey is the feet. He has really small feet! It’s not proportionate to the muscular body, lol. Looks like he skipped leg day!

The head sculpt is different, but both looks ok to me. However, I prefer Space Venom Miles Spidey’s head as the eyes looks more like in the comics, with a thicker red outline, as compared to Walmart Miles Spidey.

The front spider logo is also different. Space Venom Mils Spidey has his logo stretched longer downwards as compared to Walmart Miles Spidey.

You can also see that the Walmart Miles Spider-man has a shoulder butterfly joint, which is absent in the Space Venom Miles Spidey.

The back spider logo is the same, albeit different in size. You can see the muscular shoulder muscles of the Walmart Miles Spidey even covers his neck. Lol.

The Space Venom Miles Spidey has a bigger bicep, cos, you know, he’s been hitting the gym. Lol. The Space Venom Miles Spidey looks better on the shoulders, with the weblines on the costume extending all the way to the top of arms (deltoids).

My Verdict

The newer Ultimate Spider-man (Space Venom BAF Wave) is definitely better than the Ultimate Spider-man (Walmart Exclusive). The new body mold fits the character and the extra accessories are great; multiple pairs of hands and the unmasked head is a winner. If you missed the Walmart Miles Spidey, don’t even bother finding him.

Above are them lined up against Pizza Spidey. You can see the adult Spidey is clearly taller than both of them.

Both Ultimate Spider-men (Peter Parker and Miles Morales) line up nicely with one another. Even without the shoulder butterfly joint, their articulation are still quite good.
