The summer movie season is getting heated up, and the recent release of Star Trek has me thinking about all of the absurd merchandise that has come out over the years.

Star Trek certainly isn't the only franchise that has gone way too far in the quest to make a buck—it's bitter rival Star Wars also comes to mind. The battle between the two franchises has been fought on many fronts, but the question about who has the stupidest merchandise has yet to be debated.
