    This is essentially the opposite of small details in toys that get overlooked in fiction

    I'll start

    CW Bruticus' grey head (while i prefer the black head)
    Shockwave's gun that he holds
    POTP Elita-1's car mode

    Masterpiece Shockwave actually came with the small gun version of himself, so it wasn't overlooked.

    Typically nothing, because toys come first.

    The Purple (occasionally white) Pannels on the sides of blitzwing's head.
    Sl(a/u)g's Redhead never seems to get love.

    Hard subject to tackle

    Exactly. This is a weird thread. Especially when you consider that until the around the movie, every toy was from another toy line and had existed in some cases half a decade or more in advance of the show.

    Most G1-y Swindle toys leave out his arm cannon.

    Basically zero Bumblebee toys from RID15 bothered to include the headlamps on his chest except the one Takara repaint of the Minicon Armor Toy.

    Not the adventure warrior though! Even tho it had the molded slats...

    Masterpiece figures aside, didn't a lot of the original Ark crew display various abilities and weapons that weren't relevant to their toys?

    Yea because not all of them had models made for their toy weapons and also it was cheaper for characters to shoot lasers from their fingertips and shit instead of holding a gun is something I've read.

    Sideswipe toys rarely come with his weird jackhammers, and isn't one of the Lambros supposed to have a jetpack?

    Edited because I just saw the post before mine - where the hell is my red-headed Ratchet?

    Has Sideswipe’s rocket pack ever actually appeared other than when he handed it to Optimus?

    Devastator's drill hands. They were done with a addon but think of any toy that has him use his drill hands. Next devastator, give us thy drill hands and let thee join giant tool hand club.
