LEGO’s best Spider-Man minifigure returns in Marvel magazine

One of the best LEGO Marvel minifigures to date will be available for an affordable price once again in a future issue of the LEGO Spider-Man magazine.

Launched as a sister title to the official LEGO Marvel and DC magazine earlier this year, Immediate Media’s Spidey-focused publication kicked off with a free foil-bagged minifigure of the web-slinger himself. Issue 2 is now starting to arrive on shelves in Germany, complete with a Carnage minifigure, and Promobricks has confirmed what we can expect from Issue 3.

While it reportedly doesn’t land on shelves until early 2023, the third issue of the LEGO Spider-Man magazine will come with the best Miles Morales minifigure yet. The same iteration of the character originally debuted in 76171 Miles Morales Mech Armour, a pocket money-priced set that’s since retired – leaving the mega-expensive 76178 Daily Bugle as the only way to get your hands on the sublime design.

Between its hood, torso print and dual-moulded legs (still a rarity among superhero minifigures, alas), this really is the strongest Miles Morales we’ve seen in LEGO, and arguably one of the best Spider-Man minifigures in general. If you missed out on 76171 Miles Morales Mech Armour and don’t want to cough up for 76178 Daily Bugle, the mag is your best bet for adding this minifigure to your collection.

Miles also includes a skateboard, a spider and two power blast elements, increasing the value proposition even further. Issue 3 of the LEGO Spider-Man magazine will likely retail for £4.25 in the UK (though that price has yet to be confirmed), and will apparently arrive in stores in Germany on January 19, 2023. A release in the UK will presumably follow in February, based on the timeline of other Immediate Media titles.

The publisher’s library also includes Star Wars, Minecraft, Super Heroes, City, NINJAGO and more, but the appeal across all of them for adult fans is – of course – their free LEGO. That’s sometimes minifigures and sometimes mini-builds, traditionally in foil bags attached to the front cover, though the publisher is slowly transitioning to paper bags as part of the LEGO Group’s overall sustainability ambitions.
