The Weirdest Movie Merchandise Of 2013
The strangest tie-ins seen this year

submit to reddit

These days, you don’t just make a movie – you make a Monopoly set (The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug), a watch, a cologne, a soft drink, a hat, a bag, a tent, a mask. 2013 has continued this tradition with the tenacity of a thousand wargs, with all sorts of odds and sods cluttering up warehouses all over the globe. Here are just a few of our "favourites", but please feel free to add your own suggestions in the comment box below.

IRON MAN 3

Robert Downey Jr.’s third standalone outing as everyone’s favourite billionaire playboy philanthropist came with quite a few suits, and even more merchandise.

1 Denny's
I was in the States just before the first Hobbit came out and spent more time in Denny's eating from their separate Hobbit menu than I probably should have. I did acquire a taste for Pumpkin pie though, so every cloud. More
