Hilariously Inaccurate Toys/Collectibles of characters

What are some of the worst interpretations of characters you’ve ever seen in collectible or toy form?

I’ve seen some pretty bad ones, but I’d love to see what others have seen.

While I know this is G1, I can’t help but throw this in here.

That’s Wreck Gar, by the way.

I know that Transformers toys were typically designed before the show, but I have also heard that for the 1986 movie it was sort of the opposite at points.

Most g1 minibots (except for Seaspray, powerglide, beachcomber, and huffer)

G1 Galvatron’s toy

G1 Cyclonus’s toy

Well, those were designed before the show models were created, so I’m not sure how well that applies…

G1 galvatron and cyclonus still stand, however.

To an extant.

I got a reverse case:

Toy was made first, and the episode used a discarded character model.

Here’s the colored model sheet:

Okay, this should speak for itself VERY well.

let’s not forget the Tripredacus council, whose toys came out BEFORE the animation

At least they only showed up for a total of maybe 10 minutes by the time the show ended.

What’s that based on?

Focus on the proportions.

Oh. I guess it’s not too accurate. I just didn’t know what it was.

Man, Transformers can’t seem to get a break

Ah, yes. The infamous Lugnut McDonalds Happy-Mean toy. I still have this. It’s in my room. …Why?!

Oh! I almost forgot about this!

I think the show’s Jetfire looked so different because of legal reasons.

This should explain all.

So I have a few I can think of that aren’t accurate at ALL to their characters:

All of the Max Steel (2013) toys in the US

Bonkle Mask of undarkness


Any American Megazord that came out after 2006 (minus the legacy ones)

That’s all I can think of for now.
