With Christmas just around the corner, fans of Spider-Man: Miles Morales can add something new to their wishlist this year. Hot Toys has recently announced a new set of Cosbaby collectibles, and this time, the 1/6th scale figures are based on Miles Morales and his countless adventures as Spider-Man.
The Cosbaby figures feature Miles in his iconic black and red Spider-Man suit while he does his signature poses. Each one also features the classic bobblehead look, which is a signature feature for Cosbaby products.
In addition to that, we can see that this Cosbaby collection touts the character’s unique powers, which made an appearance in the recent Spider-Man: Miles Morales game.
The creative team behind this collection designed them with convenience in mind i.e. the figures can easily be displayed anywhere and everywhere with the use of magnets. There are 7 figures included in this collection, and each one of them is unique.
Although, there’s an obvious focus on Miles either sitting on rooftops or web-slinging. There’s even one figure wherein Miles is sporting a winter outfit, which is a clear reference to the recent Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game as it’s set during the winter season. The bobblehead figure definitely looks adorable wearing a scarf and beanie.
Unfortunately, Hot Toys hasn’t announced the release date or the price for these adorable, must-have collectibles, but interested buyers will be happy to know that pre-orders will be available soon.
So far, this partnership between Insomniac Games and Hot Toys is the biggest one yet with the purpose of promoting the brand-new game. Before the game was released though, the studio collaborated with Jaden Smith to hype up the game.
In this partnership, Jaden Smith released a new music video for his song called “I’m Ready,” which is featured in the game itself. The music video in question features gameplay from Spider-Man: Miles Morales cross-cut with Jaden singing on a roof.
Jaden’s song and music video are only two of the many ways Insomniac promoted the game. As a matter of fact, the developer even partnered with Adidas, who is selling a pair of shoes that are completely inspired by Miles’ own sneakers.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales was released last week alongside the launch of the PlayStation 5. Since then, the action-adventure title received numerous positive reviews from both critics and players alike.
On the one hand, players loved and appreciated Miles’ character development as well as the surprising twists and reveals. On the other hand, other players enjoyed the brand-new gameplay mechanics that set the game apart from the Arkham Asylum-inspired mechanics of the first game.
The first Spider-Man game released on the PlayStation 4 might be a favorite amongst many fans, but it’s also great that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is setting off on its own path without completely shadowing the footsteps of the former title.
Without a doubt, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is one of the reasons why many flocked to the PlayStation 5 when it was released. As a matter of fact, Sony’s next-gen console outsold Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and S in Japan.
