Classic Corgi Toys
The original Corgi Toy, Serial No. 803 from 1969 is made of metal and rolls on wheels, which causes the periscopes to rotate. There are several known variants -- look for different colors of the hatch doors. This model was produced until 1997 when No. 05401 was issued with some minor changes to the same basic design and size. The box for the 1997 series has a top flap that holds a collectable Beatles Corgi Toy Catalog.
Four unique Beatles figures (2 inches tall) are included in the 1999 limited-edition Corgi Yellow Submarine No. 05403, packaged in a black box. Another edition with this serial number was issued in the year 2000 using the original white and yellow hatch doors.
A smaller "mini" Yellow Submarine Number CC05404 came out in 2000 with hatch doors that are open all the time with the Fab Four, and non-rotating periscopes. Number CC05801 is also a mini-sub, created in 2002, with yellow hatch doors that are permanently closed. Compare photographs of the all different models with descriptions by Model Collector UK.
Corgi also created Beatles toys with the iconic double-decker London bus and a taxicab.

McFarlane Yellow Submarine figures - Series 1 and 2 + Saturday morning cartoon characters
McFarlane created two series of Beatles Yellow Submarine figures. Series 1 was originally released in 1999 and the complete set includes the Love Hand, Jeremy, Captain Fred, and a fantastic Blue Meanie figure. The floating Yellow Submarine in McFarlane Series 1 is fine in the bathtub with the kids. Series 1 was reissued in 2004, due to popular demand, and the Saturday morning cartoon Beatles toy figures were issued the same year.
Series 2 came out in 2000 and the figures are spectacular. First, the Beatles are dressed as members of Sargent Pepper's band, each playing an instrument. The "minor characters" that come with each package are perfect renditions of the psychedelic monsters from the animated movie: Apple Bonkers, Snapping Turk, Sucking Monster, and the awesome four-headed Bulldog.
