Added DiffLines:

** Due to complicated licensing issues, very little Comicbook/SpiderMan merchandise was released for ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. There was also absolutely nothing for Helmut Zemo, the movie's BigBad.

** Malucia from ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheSecretDoor'' averts this for the first time; she's the first BigBad to get her own doll. The cat burglar from ''WesternAnimation/BarbieSpySquad'' continues the trend, also receiving a doll.

** Generally speaking the Classic line spends a lot of its time correcting this, giving toys to either previously-toyless yet recurring characters from both cartoons (like Queen Marlena and Count Marzo) or one-off villains from the original series (like Icer, Fang Man, Batros, and the above-mentioned Strongarm), and the two Evilseed's. Filmation Count Marzo, Shakra and the others are still waiting, though.

* Out of all the characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' (a show that's actually ''concurrent'' with a toyline, thanks to both LEGO and Creator/CartoonNetwork working together to make it), the only characters to lack a set are Major Nixel (TheDragon) and Muscle Nixel (one of his minions, only seen in the ''Calling All Mixels'' app game).

This was eventually extended to even more characters in the "Every Knight Has Its Day" episode, which introduces more background Mixels from currently-introduced tribes.

** In ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'', Mirage/Dino only has a die-cast, non-transforming car toy (because Creator/{{Mattel}} holds the rights to Ferrari - said robot's alternate mode - toys) and a miniature Cyberverse figure; sadly, the latter's only a repaint of Sideways from ''[[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen Revenge of The Fallen]]'' and looks nothing like Dino in either mode.

He later got an actual Deluxe class toy in the ''Age of Extinction'' toyline, but he was released only in Japan and was a retool of Sideways (similar to the Cyberverse figure mentioned above), but this time he kinda looked like Dino in robot mode.



*** Spike's eventual toy was the head of Cerebros, the head of Fortress Maximus. Younger Spike eventually was released with the redesigned MP-10 version of Masterpiece Optimus Prime.

* There have been tie-in action figure lines to the movies in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, but characters like [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Peggy Carter and the Howling Commandos]] and [[Film/TheAvengers The Other]] don't have any actual figures of them in the aforementioned action figure lines. The Other is especially odd since Hasbro even bothered to make a Skrull warrior action figure, despite the Skrulls not appearing in ''Film/TheAvengers'' in any way.

* Despite being one of the title characters, no toys have ever been released for Kazooie of ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''. Banjo got one toy release based off of his ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' appearance, but because Kazooie was not with him in that game, she was not included. Interestingly, there ''had'' been plans for a Banjo-Kazooie toy to be released, but it fell through and only the finished, painted prototype (which ended up [[http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/now-you-can-own-this-rare-prototype-banjo-kazooie-toy-for-20k/ selling on eBay for a cool twenty thousand dollars]]) was made.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfHeMan'' had important supporting characters who didn't make the cut into the toyline, like Mara and Crita, the main females from each side. Mara even got [[http://www.he-man.org/collecting/prototypeitem.php?id=2777 a prototype]] before the toyline cancellation. She and Crita then got their own figures years later.

** Fan favorite Nightbird, a female ninja robot introduced in "Enter the Nightbird." Though she's never seen again after this episode [[EnsembleDarkhorse she's not likely to be forgotten any time soon]]. She was finally given a toy in 2015, which was a redeco of the Arcee action figure that had been released the year before.

** ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' had a few characters who were introduced apparently to promote new action figures, but said figures never materialised - Strongarm and Lizardman for instance. The Sorceress and King Randor didn't receive action figures until the final wave despite being major characters in the cartoon.

* Despite coming out with four video games (three for ''Creator/{{DC Comics}}'', only one so far for the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/ Marvel]] Heroes (but its loaded with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters), ''Franchise/{{LEGO}}'' has only managed to come out with actual mini figures of the primary heroes (and villains) in both universes. Several heroes (and villains) that are shown in the video games have yet to have actual figures made of them.
