Why is the Sontaran action figure articulated differently to the others, making it considerably wobblier?

The Sontarans were humanoids with large, bulbous heads and short stocky bodies. They had grey-brown skin and deep set features. Sontarans generally had three digits on each hand (two fingers and a thumb). ("The Two Doctors") Some Sontarans also had vestigial hair, generally in the form of beards, which grew white with age. ("Shakedown" (Virgin New Adventures novel #45)) Sontaran blood was green. ("The Two Doctors", "The Last Sontaran" (Sarah Jane Adventures story))

The Sontarans reproduced by cloning, meaning each Sontaran was nearly identical to each other. There were some instances in variation, such as the number of fingers ("The Sontaran Experiment") or skin colour ("Shakedown" (Virgin New Adventures novel #45)). The mass cloning techniques they possessed allowed their hatcheries to produce up to 1,000,000 Sontarans in 4 minutes. ("Lords of the Storm" (Virgin Missing Adventures novel #17)) All appeared roughly the same age, with the exception of General Sontar, who appeared older. ("The Infinity Doctors" (BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel #17)) The rare Pureblood Sontaran had increased status and were higher in the hierarchy. Occasionally, genetic defects would crop up and the afflicted Sontarans would be sent to work in menial labour. ("The Betrothal of Sontar" (Doctor Who Magazine comic story)) Due to Sontar's high level of gravity, the Sontarans had great strength and resilience in lower gravity environments like Earth or Gallifrey. ("The Two Doctors") Despite this strength, Sontaran muscles were designed for load bearing rather than leverage. ("The Time Warrior") They were also vulnerable to Coronic acid, which burnt, or in some cases even disintegrated them. ("The Two Doctors") If severely wounded, a Sontaran would enter an anabolic coma. In most cases, they would then die, but sometimes they would later wake up. ("Shakedown" (Virgin New Adventures novel #45)) They absorbed energy via the Probic Vent on the back of their necks. This vent was also their crucial weakness, as any sudden contact to the vent would stun them. The penetration of a sharp object into the vent would kill them. ("The Time Warrior", "The Invasion of Time")
