MAFEX Spider-Man Homecoming Figure Revealed & Photos!

Still over five months from the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming in theaters, the merch hype for the movie continues to build! Hasbro announced their non-Legends 6″ Spider-Man Homecoming figures last week, and Bandai Tamashii Nations confirmed they had a license for figures from the movie as well today. And so as not to be left in the dust, Medicom has also made a reveal of their own: the Medicom MAFEX Spider-Man Homecoming figure!

Traditionally, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Medicom MAFEX (“Miracle Action Figure EX”, for those wondering) line. The joints on MAFEX figures have typically looked a little too funky for my tastes.

But all that’s begun to change in the past year, as some of the fantastic MAFEX Star Wars figures have been really winning me over to Medicom’s side. And what do you know–their Spider-Man Homecoming movie figure is looking pretty stellar too…

And looking at the extreme range of flexibility that this Spidey is going to have, I think I can deal with some slightly unsightly joints as the trade-off!

Articulation on MAFEX Spider-Man Homecoming Movie FigureThe poses that can be achieved with this Spider-Man movie figure are downright awesome and are going to be a ton of fun to recreate.

While it’s not at the Hot Toys level (nor should it be expected to be), the Tom Holland portrait looks pretty excellent here for a 6″ figure head. I’d be very surprised if Hasbro does a head that’s any better (if they make one at all).

Quite a bit more in the accessories department than we typically get with our domestic Spidey figures.

One advantage that the Spider-Man Homecoming MAFEX figure definitely won’t have over the domestic Hasbro Marvel Legends or Diamond Select Toys Marvel Select figures is the price-tag.

MAFEX is an import line, and a pricey one at that–the figure will retail for 6,800 Japanese yen (around $60 U.S.). That’s likely to be about the same or even more than the Bandai S.H. Figuarts Spider-Man figure, so personally, I’ll be waiting to see that version before making any buying decisions as far as import figures go.

MAFEX Spider-Man Homecoming FigureThe Medicom Spider-Man Homecoming MAFEX action figure should be up for pre-order in the next few days, and is scheduled to be released in October 2017. Medicom doesn’t have a domestic license for Marvel figures, so you’ll have to either import yourself or purchase from an importer like BBTS if you want this one.

What are your thoughts on the first high-end 6″ Spider-Man: Homecoming movie figure to be revealed, Marvel collectors? Are you in for this action figure, or biding your time to see what the competition produces?

  1. I am hoping this means Hot Toys will be revealing their version sooner rather than later.

    Those upset about the drought of Spidey merch last year because of the licensing issues will be very happy this year, I think.

  2. It looks cool, but ultimately the webbing being embossed into it just annoys me.
    No Spider-Man has EVER had the web pattern etched into his suit.
    It’s just wrong and LOOKS wrong.

  3. It puts the terrible Marvel Legends 3-Pack one that we got to shame.
    Deep deep shame.

  4. Wait those terrible looking Homecoming figures we saw last week were 6 inch figures? CHRIST! They looked like 3 inch figures, the quality was terrible.

  5. Looks great. I hope it comes with more accessories than that though… I was spoiled with the Amazing Spider Man and all his accessories.

  6. the face will never look that good. I got Wonder Woman and Kylo Ren and they look nothing like the promo images.

  7. I’m actually pretty excited for this figure to come out. Once I save up money, I’m definitely buying this beauty of a Spiderman figure. I received my MAFEX Amazing Spiderman 2 DX figure set last Christmas, and while it is fun to pose with, the joints get too loose quickly, which is unfortunate since it has been only 2 months with this. But this Homecoming figure looks (pun included) amazing! I love how it looks movie accurate to the Civil War and Homecoming suit. Just perfect. Only thing I hope is for the joints to not get too loose after a while. Other than that, beautiful piece of art.

  8. I hope they keep the magnetic feet/hands gimmick from the ASM2 deluxe figure. Its my favorite part of that figure.
