Seriously, these things will be haunting your nightmares for weeks to come, so you should probably avoid reading on if you’re of a sensitive disposition. We really can’t believe how bad some of these unofficial pieces of merchandise are, and how or why anyone ever buys them. Check them out and see what we mean!
