Do we have an exact opposite of this? Toys that are part of the official line, but does not appear in the series/movie? This troper owned several Star Wars toys that, much to my frustration, turned out to be absent from the movies.

I wonder if we need a note to the effect that "the toyline hasn't hit the shelves yet, therefore the entire cast is toyless for now" is not in fact an example, as per the huge wall of Transformers Prime description I just deleted.

Just started a major page cleanup. As I said in my edit reason: I can't stress enough that this isn't when the opressive toy companies can't be bothered to make your favorite character. It's when the writers create a character, toyline be damned.

Characters from non-toyline driven media necessarily cannot count. This is supposed to be the one character who isn't based on a toy, not the one character who didn't get one.

If you're interested, feel free to take it to YKTTW but I don't think it will get far. It's something that happens, but doesn't really mean anything.

I originally made this trope about the companies not making your favorite.

No, it was not about characters created for the show originally.

I'm glad to see this trope is back.

Was it ever gone? Or rather, was there an incarnation of this page before this one that got cut?

Yes, there was an old incarnation of the page.
