I was just surprised at how so many of the Hasbro toys had so little to do with the plot. They are pretty uninteresting as toys, so I expected a little more role in the movie.
There's a very subtle indicator of which vehicles from the toy line are in the movie and which ones are not. That being a single line of text on the toy packaging. If "THE FORCE AWAKENS" text is on the package, that vehicle appears in the movie. Vehicles like the speeder bike, assault walkers and the Jakku speeder don't have that "THE FORCE AWAKENS" text, and it doesn't appear to be a coincidence that they aren't in the film.
