Roger Maris on Steroids?

I recently went out and purchased the new McFarlane Cooperstown Collection Roger Maris figurine and I have to say, it is very anatomically incorrect:

Let's analyze a real life photo of Maris:

As you can tell, Maris' arms are no larger than the average person's arms. No bulging biceps, no ripping veins, nothing out of the ordinary.

Now let's analyze the McFarlane figurine:

In nearly the same pose as above, you can defiantly see a difference in muscle mass. Maris has a wider torso and his arms suddenly blew up to He-Man like proportions. The actual figure has bulging veins and the arms are larger on Maris than the Jason Giambi figurine.
Steroids were not around in 1961, yet his arms seem abnormally large.

If we were to compare Maris to He-Man, you will see that there is not much difference in the arm mass.
