* AllThereInTheManual: A good portion of background info merely glossed over in the comic (Baron's rise to power, the Toymaker's previous involvement in an anti-Baron smuggling operation/art collective, the Second Industrial Revolution, etc.) was mentioned on the comic's minisite. The section the information was included on is [[LostForever has been broken for a matter of years]].

After a rough start, the robot [[{{Fembot}} Tiffany]] (named after an old song called [[FallOutBoy "Tiffany Blews"]]) is activated. She needs to experience life in order for her programming to function properly. Baron, being the dominating figure that he is, won't be having any of that. Tiffany is implanted with other people's memories, averaged out to maintain a balanced. On top of the Toymaker dealing with a failing factory and a robot going through an existential crisis living with a man she might not even want to love comes another complication...[[PygmalionPlot The Toymaker has fallen in love with his creation]]. She might just feel the same. With Tiffany caught in the middle of the Toymaker and the Baron, who ''won't'' come out worse for wear?

The entire comic [[note]]with logoless/textless cover pages, the addition of a few additional pages in issue one and the absence of issue one's stinger and the final page of issue 5[[/note]] [[http://fallouttoyworks.keenspot.com/d/20120326.html is available to read for free online]] through Atomeka Press. The comic is also available through Comixology (with issue one for free) and through a trade paperback with bonus material. A Motion Comic adaptation is currently in DevelopmentHell. If and when it does get released, it'll feature the voices of Patrick Stump (as the Toymaker), Pete Wentz (as Crybaby), Creator/AnnaFaris (as Tiffany), and Jaime King (as Gravity Welles). DevelopmentHell isn't new for Fall Out Toy Works as in its initial run, the releases for the last three issues took much longer than expected due to the writer being in a coma and Fall Out Boy went on break around the end of the series run. Ouch. The series is intended to expand further into a multimedia franchise with toys, fashion, and animated movies.

Added DiffLines:

* OrwellianRetcon: The trade paperback and webcomic version take out the final page of issue 5, which changes the tone of the ending drastically.
* PlotHole: The {{Stinger}} for Issue 1 shows a clean-cut Toymaker working on Tiffany's heart with the caption "ONE YEAR LATER." The second issue contradicts this, with a struggling Toymaker only ''just'' getting the idea of making her a heart a year later, with someone else actually doing the work on it. This stinger is cut out of the webcomic version but is still in the trade paperback.
** The OrwellianRetcon of the final page of issue 5 in the webcomic and trade paperback version fixes the SurprisinglyHappyEnding that seemingly took the "bite" out of TheDogBitesBack [[spoiler: and Mr. Moth's death]], making it merely an AmbiguousEnding.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDogBitesBack: In issue 5, Tiffany's anger at both the Toymaker and the Baron continually not allowing her to define herself leads to [[spoiler: her removing her FakeMemories, taking out Baron's airship, and escaping using Toymaker's mechanical wings]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Rabbi who creates Tiffany's heart is confronted by one of Baron's MechaMooks and is never heard from again, though you can probably assume the worst, knowing the Baron.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Long before Fall Out Toy Works' conception, an announcement about a Fall Out Boy comic came from Del Ray Comics along with promotional art. This comic would have been a one-shot "graphic novel" with the band as characters in a fictional narrative. Sometime later, news came that the project was canned due to Creator/BongoComics (who had previously ran Radioactive Man comics featuring FallOutBoy's namesake and Simpsons side character Fallout Boy) not wanting people getting the comic based on the band mixed up with the comic based on the Simpsons character. People cried foul as Bongo had never released any actual Fallout Boy comics, nobody involved with the production of TheSimpsons or related spinoffs had any legal issues with FallOutBoy up to that point, and while "Fallout Boy" is copyrighted to Matt Groening, "Fall Out Boy" has been copyrighted to the band since its inception. Phew! Turns out the ''real'' reason was that FallOutBoy hadn't actually approved Del Ray's concept but Del Ray had gone through with announcing it anyways. Del Ray countered, claiming FallOutBoy hadn't said anything about rejecting it. Either way, it's not happening.
** Turns out the Del Ray pitch wasn't the only time FallOutBoy had been approached with a comic deal.

With a story that explores WhatMeasureIsANonHuman, the [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove nature of love]], whether or not love is any less real if it's programmed (into a human OR a robot), and a very, ''very'', [[GainaxEnding weird ending]], Fall Out Toy Works manages to be nothing (yet everything) one would expect from a comic book based on FallOutBoy. Much like MyFairLady [[XMeetsY meets]] Film/BladeRunner, but [[MindScrew weirder]].
