* ''A lot'' of ''Franchise/DisneyPrincess'' or just plain ''Disney/{{Frozen}} merchandise uses a stock image of Elsa using an earlier model. The model is notably off model compared to the finalized Elsa. That stock image was actually the first leaked image of Elsa's final design, which caused [[InternetBacklash fan outrage]] due to how "ugly" Elsa looked. Elsa was received much better when her final model was shown off. Nowadays people probably don't wince at the image however it does still look off, especially her eyes.

* The ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} figure from the ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' line. Since it's just a repaint of the Creator/JeremyRenner Hawkeye figure from ''Film/TheAvengers'', it just looks like movie Hawkeye with some purple paint splashed on his costume, rather than his actual outfit from the show.

->"Starlight though... what the hay? I think that's actually Starlight's weird otherwise-unseen cousin trying to impersonate her and failing, or maybe a [[{{Doppelganger}} Changeling]] that's having an off day. Other releases of her are downright awesome, so why does this one look so wrong?"

With most countries flourishing in the free market, they sell a truckload of toys to tiny tots and toddlers everywhere. However, for every well-modeled [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Transformer]], there will be a few misshapen ones to take its place for a cheaper price. Whether they have flimsy plastic, terrible paint jobs, outsourced from a decrepit factory, or maybe TheyJustDidntCare... here are some toys that will ensure your children will have nightmares tonight.

Highlights include various characters inexplicably dressed as everything from pirates to some sort of stereotypical nerd with plaid overalls, the oddly frequent "two mouths" problem, Shadow's left hand being accidentally replaced with a foot, and Amy with unevenly-sized eyes.


Added DiffLines:

* This sometimes happens with ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', most often the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Generation 4]] toys. The most infamous is probably Pink Celestia (Princess Celestia is supposed to be white, but [[ExecutiveMeddling that's not what the toy stores wanted]]). Princess Luna is pretty much never accurately depicted in standard brushable form. Daisy (known as Flower Wishes in the toy line) is an Earth pony in every depiction... ''except'' her Cutie Mark Magic brushable, which is a pegasus. Factory errors can also be rather interesting, attaching one pony's head to another pony's body or giving them the wrong Cutie Mark. The small "blind bag" figures sometimes have rather noticeable paint errors, and the "Favorites Collection" release of Lyra Heartstrings frequently has uneven eyes.

** Ironhide and Ratchet for instance, have proper heads in all non-toy related material, but their original action figures don't. This is because the original figures were made in Japan for a different purpose- ''before'' the concept of Transformers came into play. Those figures were meant to be "armor" used by human pilots, but the idea was shelved when the toys were re-worked into transforming robots. In fact, there are even Bot-con and fan surrogate modifications that can be applied to these toys to give them actual heads.
** Some other noticeable ones include Swoop not being the same color as his cartoon model (he was in the predecessor line ''Diaclone'' however), many characters (Trailbreaker, Bumblebee, Mixmaster of the Constructicons) having mouthplates instead of proper mouths, Jetfire going from his [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross VF-1]] form to a generic jet between the toy release and show and Galvatron being grey instead of purple (This was corrected in a re-release in 2005).

** Recently (2010-2012) third party companies have started developing cartoon accurate figures or accessories that fit specific toys or toylines. The "heads" for Ironhide and Ratchet are an example. Some of these companies went even further and released knock offs of the original toys in their cartoon accurate color (KO Diaclone Blue Swoop being an example related below). There's a lot of controversy in the fandom about this, to say the least.

** Scale issues. While the whole franchise never kept [[UnitsNotToScale scale between characters consistent]], let alone knew what such a term meant. This toyline had it the worst. For instance, Tankor, one of the largest characters in the show, was only sold as a not-as-large Mega class toy. Whereas Nightscream, one of the smallest, was given a huge-ass figure that was in scale with literally '''''no one else'''''.

** Supreme Cheetor. [[BlatantLies Hyped up to be]] ''[[BlatantLies the]]'' [[BlatantLies most show-accurate representation of the character to date]], was, in fact, the [[HypeBacklash least accurate]] out of the whole toyline to that point. With weird translucent green patches all over the figure, wild proportions and an inaccurate paint job (the normally purple spots in the show became black). And that's before you get into the [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking nightmare-inducing face]] he was given. Yeah sure the Mega sized figure wasn't accurate either, but at least it wasn't lying about it.
* Even though this was intentional, the characters in the first three ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' movies (touched upon in the Animated Films section), look ''nothing'' like the toys.

* Usually invoked with [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies Plush toys]] due to their chibiness, which is often shown with a lack of or simplified facial features such as eyes or noses.
* There are many toy lines based on films and video games that feature notoriously bad likenesses to the characters they are supposed to be based on, even as of late with more advanced scanning and sculpting techniques generally making it easier to duplicate the likeness of an actor or computer model in action figure form.

Added DiffLines:

** The Mask of Life piece, included with the 2008 Toa Ignika and 2009 giant-sized Toa Mata Nui sets, is off model due to the faulty sculpting of its connection port making the mask attach to the heads at a slight angle.
** The Mask of Creation on the ''Toys/{{Bionicle 2015}}'' Hero Pack's packaging uses an outdated prototype design which looks nothing like the actual mask.

* General Grievous from the LEGO ''Franchise/StarWars'' Buildable Figure line has a pair of extra toes.

* Neither the [[http://www.disneystore.com/vanellope-plush-wreck-it-ralph-12/mp/1318526/1000267/ plush toy]], or [[http://www.disneystore.com/vanellope-von-schweetz-talking-doll-wreck-it-ralph-11/mp/1318586/1000259/ doll]] (Which is [[UncannyValley creepy in its own right]]) of [[Disney/WreckItRalph Vanellope von Schweetz]] have the exact bits of candy in their hair. The plush toy for instance, actually has ''less'' candy; and both have the wrong color mints (White & red, instead of the green & brown in the film proper). The eyes are also wrong on both as well.
