The figure features thirty (30) points of articulation throughout the neck, arms, torso, and legs and comes with eight (8) interchangeable left and right hands molded to punch, grab, and spin webs of any size. Standing nearly 11.5 inches tall, the figure is a match for both the physique and visage of actor Tom Holland.

The mostly fabric costume consists of a red, sleeveless, zippered hoodie layered over a light blue, long-sleeved sweatshirt and matching sweatpants. Adding to the display options, the mask features three (3) pairs of plastic eyepieces that collectors can swap out to add a modicum of expression to the fledgling Avenger. The suit also features red fabric socks, and molded plastic shoes and web-shooters.
