The Top 10 Most Expensive LEGO Spider-Man Minifigures
4th January 2022
In 2002 the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man film premiered in cinemas and at the same time LEGO picked up the licensing rights to start producing sets based on the much-loved, web-slinging superhero.
20 years and 8 films later, LEGO is still producing new Spider-Man sets for us to buy and in that time, we've gotten a wide range of Spider-Man minifigures. Being one of the most popular superheroes, if not the most popular, it’s no surprise that many of his minifigures are now extremely valuable. In this article we countdown the top ten most expensive.
The prices and images for these minifigures have been taken from bricklink.com, my go to place for buying new and used LEGO.
10. Spider-Man 2099
Current Value: £29 / $36
This futuristic version of Spider-Man was included in the Spider-Man's Spider Crawler (76114) set from 2019. Although the set only recently retired, this minifigure is already nearly worth as much as it’s RRP.
Spider-Man 2099 had his movie debut in the post-credits scene of the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and is expected to have a more central role in its sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which is due to come out in 2023. The man behind the mask is Miguel O'Hara, a talented Irish-Mexican geneticist, who lives in New York.
Characters that have only appeared once in minifigure form, as is the case with Spider-Man 2099, have historically fetched large sums after they’ve entered retirement, so it’s no surprise he makes this list. Depending on his prominence in the movie sequel his popularity and notability may increase, which would likely see this minifigure’s price rise even further.
9. Iron Spider-Man - Mechanical Arms with Barbs
Current Value: £44 / $53
This minifigure was included in the Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown (76108) set from 2018. It depicts Peter Parker in the armoured version of the Spider-Man suit, which makes use of nanotechnology. The suit was created by Tony Stark and given to Peter upon becoming an Avenger, which he later made use of in the Infinity War to fight Thanos. The gold mechanical arms make this one of the most unique minifigure versions of Spider-Man, which contributes to his price. Another factor is the huge popularity of the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
8. Spider-Man 3 - Dark Blue Arms and Legs, Silver Webbing
Current Value: £66 / $80
This Spider-Man appeared in five different sets, by far the most of any minifigure on this list. Use in multiple sets reduces a minifigures rarity and thus their value, but these fives set were all released way back in 2004. This means the number of Spider-Man 3s that have remained in pristine condition is going to be much less than ones included in more recent sets. Back then, there were also fewer LEGO collectors around.
Although this minifigure has been given the name Spider-Man 3, it portrays the superhero as he appeared in the second Spider-Man movie, where his adversary was Dr. Octopus. He has identical printing to the version of the web-slinger that appeared in the sets from the first movie, and only differs from the use of a darker shade of blue.
7. Spider-Man 1 - Blue Arms and Legs, Silver Webbing
Current Value: £71 / $86
This minifigure captures Spider-Man as he appeared in the first movie and was included in two sets from 2003: The Origins (4851) and The Final Showdown (4852). For a minifigure this old, the design is excellent and features some impressive silvery printing on both his front and back. There is even detail printed onto his hips. Personally, I prefer this light blue colour palette over darker shades, as it gives the minifigure a more classic look. The quality of the minifigure, and the fact he is one of the oldest Spider-Men, is the reason for his high price.
#6 - Spider-Man 1 - Blue Arms and Legs, Silver Webbing, Neck Bracket
Current Value: £100 / $121
This was the very first LEGO Spider-Man to be released, having appeared in the Spider-Man Action Studio (1376) set from 2002. He is identical to the version that featured in the 2003 sets, except this one features a neck bracket piece. This allowed him to be attached to a clear rod so builders could simulate him flying through the air. The inclusion of the neck bracket adds a significant amount to his value because this piece only appeared in red in two sets, one being the Spider-Man Action Studio and the other being the Wrestling Scene (1375), in which the next minifigure on this list appears.
#5 - Spider-Man 2 - Balaclava Face
Current Value: £103 / $125
This Spider-Man minifigure is one of the most iconic and is a must have for any collector. The unique balaclava face printing instantly takes you on a trip down nostalgia lane to that scene in the first movie where a fresh-faced Peter Parker enters the wrestling competition. Although the printing has a faded look to it, it very accurately recreates the primitive first Spider-Man costume Peter makes for himself. This minifigure was included in two sets: Wrestling Scene (1375) and Spider-Man's First Chase (4850).
#4 - Spider-Man in Black Symbiote Costume
Current Value: £425
This minifigure is my personal favourite Spider-Man. It shows him in the black symbiote costume, that appears in the third movie where the symbiote arrives on earth and latches onto Peter Parker. Compared to many other Spider-Man minifigures, the design is quite basic and could have been improved by some more detailed printing. However, there is beauty in its simplicity.
Besides being one of the coolest looking Spider-Men LEGO have ever produced, it is also one of the rarest. Since 2011, LEGO has brought exclusive minifigures to San Diego Comic-Con to be given away for free to lucky winners. Normally they bring three or four figures to each Comic-Con, and while no one knows the exact production numbers of each minifigure, it's rumoured to be around 2,000 - 3,000. Spider-Man in Black Symbiote Costume was given away at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, and due to the limited number that are in existence, he now fetches a very high price on the aftermarket.
#3 - PS4 Spider-Man (Comic-Con 2019 Exclusive)
Current Value: £600 / $800
This minifigure was given away at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con and resembles Spider-Man’s videogame counterpart in the PS4 Spider-Man game. It features some cartoony printing and black outlining which causes the details to really standout and helps make this one of the most aesthetically pleasing Spider-Man minifigures.
#2 - Spider-Man (Miles Morales) (Sony PS 2020 Exclusive)
Current Value: £800 / $1,000
This minifigure was another exclusive given away at the San Diego Comic-Con. This one was from 2020 and shows him in the classic Miles Morales suit. LEGO and PlayStation ran a contest to give away this minifigure, which required people to play and complete Marvel’s PS4 Spider-Man game in order to win the “End Game” trophy. This allowed participants to be entered into a prize draw where only 1,650 of this Spider-Man were given away. This number could very well make this the rarest Spider-Man minifigure. It subsequently rarely comes up for sale, so is difficult to place a value on. However, a price of £800 / $1000 plus is reasonable to expect, but it could be much more.
#1 - Spider-Man (Comic-Con 2013 Exclusive)
Current Value: £5,000 / $7,000
Taking the top spot is this very detailed and very rare, classic looking Spider-Man, which was given away at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. The printing is exceptional, especially that on his eyes, and makes this one of the most realistic depictions of the famous web-slinger. Like the other Comic-Con minifigures, it comes up for sale very infrequently, so valuing it is difficult. A market price in the range of £4,000 - £6,000 / $5,000 - $7,000 can be expected, which makes it one of the most expensive LEGO minifigures ever.
