*** MP-20 Wheeljack comes with a hypno-chip disruptor when purchased through Amazon.jp. Interestingly, his faceplate (unremovable without dismantling the head) hides a face similar to that of his ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' counterpart, which goes completely undocumented in the instructions. A similar thing is in place with MP-01 Optimus Prime - under his faceplate (which can move to simulate speech la the cartoon) is a series of squares similar to what a dying Optimus Prime had under his broken faceplate in the Marvel comics.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' toys are known for giving newer versions of Optimus Prime the iconic chest-windscreen in robot mode, even if it's not going to be the windscreen in vehicle mode. Likewise, Alternators Tracks and Animated Bumblebee, to name a couple.

** Given that Soundwave figure also represents the ''[[TransformersWarForCybertron War for Cybertron]]'' version of Soundwave, that makes this a video game example as well; indeed, most of the ''War for Cybertron'' cast have bodies that resemble some combination of their various G1 Earthen and Cybertronian appearances.

The eyes of the figure can alternate between cartoon blue and the original toy's red. Later iterations of the toy even include a crown Grimlock wore during his stint as Autobot leader in [[Comicbook/TheTransformers the Marvel comics]]. *** MP-13 Soundwave has a chest display and attachable empty energon cube (both abilities he displayed in the cartoon), as well as a sensor that attaches to either one of his arms. This sensor only appeared in ''one episode'' ("Fire on the Mountain", for those interested). *** MP-14 Red Alert comes with sparks that attach to his head to recreate the damage he had in the episode "Auto Berserk". *** MP-20 Wheeljack comes with a hypno-chip disruptor when purchased through Amazon.jp.

A similar thing is in place with MP-01 Optimus Prime - under his faceplate (which can move to simulate speech la the cartoon) is a series of squares similar to what a dying Optimus Prime had under his broken faceplate in the Marvel comics. *** MP-21 Bumblebee has three swappable faces, one of which is the visored, more robotic face that his original toy had. *** MP-22 Ultra Magnus has, in addition to a Matrix of Leadership, a hidden face similar to the white Optimus Prime repaint that the original toy used. *** MP-27 Ironhide has several gadgets originally used in miscellaneous cartoon episodes, oftentimes [[ForgottenPhlebotinum never to be heard from again]]. He also has a "battle sled" similar to what the G1 toy (infamous for [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy not being accurate to the cartoon or comic]][[note]]Page image Ratchet was a repaint of Ironhide, so imagine that toy painted red and that's G1 Ironhide.[[/note]]) had. *** MP-29 Shockwave has an alternate translucent purple hand and gun barrel, referencing the ones the original Shockwave toy had. One hand even does a salute (referencing a single gesture done in "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1"), and some even reference what were possible [[OffModel animation goofs]] (namely having a removable gun hose and barrel to emulate the curious lack of it he had in the aforementioned first episode, and a miniature version of his own gun mode that he wielded in "Desertion of the Dinobots, Part 1"). ----

** Don't even get this troper started on the LEGO movie. Amongst other things: *** Dozens of allusions to stop-motion movie-making, incredibly popular amongsts it's fans. The entire movie's animation was made to resemble that. *** The gunfire a minifig dodges consists out of lightsaber parts. * ''{{Transformers}}'' toys are known for giving newer versions of Optimus Prime the iconic chest-windscreen in robot mode, even if it's not going to be the windscreen in vehicle mode. Likewise, Alternators Tracks and Animated Bumblebee, to name a couple. * Another Transformers example would be Generations Soundwave. Obstensibly, it represents the one from WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime while in the altmode he used on Cybertron. In actuality, he looks almost exactly like G1 Soundwave, except with a vehicle mode.

* The Death Star Playset of 2008 had a megaphone piece with neon orange stud on the end, resembling the blasters of 1999 until 2007, being swapped with more realistically looking models. Granted, there wasnt that much time for [[IncrediblyLamePun building up]] the mythology part.
