With every hit film or television show - or even the less-than mediocre ones - comes the chance that there will be a toy line to tie into it. More over, it's highly likely that such a toy line... is going to suck!
We have all been there as children, being gifted a toy around Christmas time that had no business being made. While other kids got Michelangelo or He-Man, others were stuck with getting... oh, look... April O'Neil's fat-ass boss from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (yeah, I'm bitter as hell, so what?)...
Now, you get to relive the God-awful toys from the past with this quiz, which will ask you to name the character or simply grant you mercy by trying to name the movie obscure and hideous toy came from!
