* The British beauty [[Website/YouTube YouTuber]] {{Zoella}} attracted a huge backlash in late 2017 through this; although she'd already had numerous lines of merch and other branded products out, for Christmas 2017 she released, in association with the beauty/chemist's chain Boots, an advent calendar[[note]]A calendar with doors for the days of December on it, which you open to count down to Christmas; there is usually chocolate or increasingly another small gift or item behind the doors[[/note]]. An advent calendar which had only 12 doors on it. An advent calendar which contained small, cheap worthless items like a tiny notepad, a pen, a keyring, a scented candle, a tiny bottle of room spray and (most egregiously) a small cookie cutter. For '''£50'''[[note]]Most Brits would consider £10 a bit much for an advent calendar and most will usually buy one for well under £5.[[/note]]. She quickly garnered negative press, and didn't help herself when she claimed to have had no input on the contents of the calendar despite previously claiming to have full oversight and control of her licensed projects; in the process, also burning her bridges with Britain's biggest beauty chain by placing all the blame for it squarely on them.

* The films of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse always have tie-in toylines, though how large they are usually depends on how "toyetic" the film itself is.[[note]]For instance, the ''Film/IronMan'', ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', ''[[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Spider-Man]]'' and ''Film/BlackPanther'' movies all had larger toylines than ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' or ''Film/AntMan''. The various TV series (''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', and the Netflix shows (''Series/{{Daredevil}}'', ''Series/JessicaJones'', ''Series/LukeCage'' and ''Series/IronFist'') also tend to have less merchandise, since they are aimed at a more adult audience.[[/note]]

** In-universe, the Avengers have had action figures since the Battle of New York. In ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', Stark mentions another cash-in.

'''Strange:''' Stark-Raving Hazelnuts.\\
'''Stark:''' ''[defensively]'' It's not bad.\\
'''Strange:''' Bit ''chalky.''\\
'''Wong:''' I prefer Hulk-a Hulk-a Burnin' Fudge.\\

* During the 1990s and into the early 2000s, Hasbro made figures based on several DC Comics, including the ''Legends of Batman'' line, which was a toyline based on ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' or {{Elseworlds}} ideas; ''Superman: The Man of Steel'', which dealt with ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman'' and its aftermath, ''ComicBook/TheDeathOfClarkKent'', and in Lex Luthor's case, his post-DealWithTheDevil incarnation after ''ComicBook/UnderworldUnleashed''; ''Total Justice'', which while not based on any particular storyline, reflected the then-status quo and gave Kyle Rayner, Wally West, Connor Hawke, and Parallax their first figures; and ''JLA'', a toyline based on Creator/GrantMorrison's run on ''[[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' and later Creator/PeterDavid's ''ComicBook/YoungJustice''.
