A post shared by Hot Toys (@hottoyscollectibles)

As avid collectors know, Hot Toys (Booth: F01) always brings excitement and anticipation to the convention with their highly sought-after releases. This year, they kick things off with a reveal of the PS5 blockbuster “Spider-Man 2” figures: the 1/6 scale Spider-Man: Peter B. Parker (Advanced Suit 2.0) and Miles Morales (Upgraded Suit).

The red version, which was previously an ACGHK exclusive and soared in aftermarket prices, now features additional metallic claws on the back and a redesigned web pattern. Alongside it is the all-new Miles Morales figure. These limited edition pieces are restricted to 3,000 worldwide, with only 300 available in Hong Kong.
