Probably owes more to the toy designers being able to work from the finished film designs after the movie came out. A number of the toys have features that come from early concept sketches (Jazz's sword thing, Ratchet's axe, the LOC Megatron still having the original head) that weren't in the finished film, hinting that the toy designs had to be finalized much sooner than the CGI models.
