List Rules Vote up the toys that look the least like the actors they supposedly represent

After seeing a movie, most kids want every single toy based on the film. Multiply the excitement after you just saw your new favorite movie and you're scoring a figure from the brand new toy line! But remember the disappointment and confusion that set in when you looked at that little plastic head and thought "Wait... why does my favorite hero's face look like it's melting?" This list plunders toy chests of yore to find the action figures that look nothing like the characters and stars they were supposed to represent.

Sculpting those tiny little faces can't be easy. There's probably always someone standing over the sculptor's shoulder, making sure that the job is done quick and cheap. Remember, it's all about that bottom dollar so who cares if it actually looks like Alan Rickman or Michael Keaton? Hopefully, as time goes on, these actors have been in bigger, better movies that warranted even cooler toys or the old designs are getting an update thanks to movie fans with deeper pockets than they had when they were 9 years old.

Regardless, these terrible toys remain as testaments to merchandising gone horribly awry. Vote up the tie-in action figures that are the most off base!
