In my other review of the new LEGO Marvel figures for 2022, we take a look at Spider-Man (76226). This one is 258 pieces and also is priced at $24.99 like with the other figures in the wave.
The first few steps of the build is pretty much the exact same as Miles Morales (76225) for torso area. One you get to the arms, there are subtle difference between the two. All the joints have either ball joints or click joints to give him a wide range of motion. You can easily get him in a lot of action poses but the main issue here is at the thighs. Like Miles Morales, the movement on the legs forward is limited and this also limits some of the crouching poses.
Spider-Man does have a few more printed piece for his detailing which includes the head, chest, waist, and legs. I do like how the spider logo on the chest is made up of a printed hood and shield pieces.
For his accessories, Spider-Man does have some web pieces which are the same as Miles but they are plain white.
Like I said with Miles Morales, the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man (76226) isn’t for everyone. Kids will have fun posing him around but his legs do limit what he can do. He also has the head piece that makes him look weird in certain angles.
