Exclusive ONE:12 Collective Miles Morales Spider-Man!

Plot twist…! A couple weeks back, I was lamenting that the SDCC 2017 Mezco ONE:12 Collective Exclusive for Marvel was X-Men Deadpool, when what I really wanted was one of a million possible costume variants of Spider-Man. I’ve been watching the Mezco Toyz website the last few weeks to see what the DC exclusive for Comic Con would be, but instead Mezco hit us with a real surprise–the ONE:12 Collective Miles Morales Spider-Man is a second Summer Exclusive!

SDCC 2017 Exclusive Mezco Spider-Man Miles Morales 6 Inch Figure

Plenty of folks complained that the ONE:12 Collective X-Men Deadpool figure was a “stupid” exclusive choice (I like that quirky costume, though it wasn’t the exclusive I had in mind either), but that SDCC Deapool had no troubles selling out like lightning nonetheless.

So, hey–if one Marvel ONE:12 Collective Summer Exclusive figure is going to be lava hot, why stop there, right? And so, this morning Mezco Toyz surprised collectors everywhere with a unique character coming as a summer convention exclusive: ONE:12 Collective Spider-Man Miles Morales!

Close-Up of Miles Morales Mezco Summer Exclusive 2017Now this is a reveal that well and truly through me for a loop. Up until now, all the Mezco ONE:12 Collective exclusives have just been costume variants of the same character, so getting an exclusive unique character like Miles Morales–a character who’s had his own comic series and is a major player in the modern Marvel Universe–is definitely a shocker.

Mezco ONE 12 Collective Miles Morales SDCC Exclusive FigureIf Mezco Toyz is prepared for the demand for this popular character and made a decent supply of this item, thenĀ  all is well and good. But if Miles is a really low-run exclusive (a la Classic Punisher), a lot of collectors are going to be really cheesed off.

ONE 12 Collective Miles Morales Figure and AccessoriesAs far as accessories go, this 6.2″ Spider-Man Miles Morales ONE:12 Collective figure is pretty light. You get the display base, six interchangeable hands, four weblines… and that’s it. For an 80 dollar action figure with 0% new tooling, that is not a whole lot.

Summer Exclusive 2017 Miles Morales Mezco ONE 12 Collective Spider-ManI also think that at ~16cm (6.2″) tall, this figure is going to look a mite too tall next to the other figures in the Marvel ONE 12 Collective line. While Miles is technically “Spider-Man”, he’s still a teen and not fully-grown. Luckily, Spidey should be in a lot of crouching poses, so it may not be as noticeable as it would be on other characters.

Mezco Miles Morales Spider-Man ONE 12 Collective Figure ExclusiveThe Miles Morales ONE:12 Collective figure is now up for order on the Mezco Toyz website, and will also be available at their booth at San Diego Comic Con 2017 from July 19-23. If you are a non-attendee, do not delay on this one–it’s going to sell out online, and it’s going to do so quickly.

What do you think about the selection of Miles Morales as a Summer Convention Exclusive, Marvel collectors? Is Miles too integral a character to be so limited, and will you be pre-ordering one?

  1. I actually really like this one. I am falling behind on these MEZCOs and the prices seems reasonable to me. They are like a cross between Hottoys and Marvel legends.

  2. I have so many on pre-order right now. I need these things to start coming in. Add this to my pre-order list.

  3. The rim of black inside the red outer rim of the eye is a REALLY odd choice. I’ve never seen that in any comic iteration of MM before.

    • To be honest, I don’t think that’s what that is. Mezco’s site notes that this figure has acrylic lenses, so I think that “black inner rim” is just the way the light’s interacting with the eyes, and the white part being inset to make room for the acryclic lenses, so it’s actually the red rim casting a shadow inside the eye.
