I still distinctly remember when Guns N’ Roses and Metallica played at Arrowhead Stadium when I was in middle school…and I was not allowed to go…

The reason I was not allowed to go will not be explored in this article, but all I can say is that I’m still not over it…

But back to my point: at school, the day after the concert, TONS of kids who had been there had concert shirts on…but some of them looked like cheap imitations…and that’s how I learned about the wonderful world of bootleg items!

Now, are you ready to see some pretty funny bootleg examples?

Let’s take a look.

1. Transformable Tomas.

Your kid is gonna love it!


2. A lot going on here.

I need some time to think about this…


3. Did E.T. really ride in a sidecar?

I don’t remember it that way…


4. That’s a strange-looking Ninja Turtle.

Is that supposed to be Donatello?


5. I’m just so confused…

He-Man! What do you think you’re doing?!?!


6. I’m a huge fan of The Sampsons.

Boy and Mom are my favorite characters.


7. A total nightmare.

Would you let your kid get near this thing? I didn’t think so…


8. Does whatever a sipdre can!

My favorite superhero.


9. Hmmm. Very confusing.

I kind of see what they’re going for here…


10. I can picture these on an older gentleman in Florida.

Just try to picture it…


11. I thought he was called something else…

But, I guess I’m wrong. Again.


12. A Tick Tock Orange Juice.

Remember that classic film?


Yeah, I’d say those are pretty bad…

And now we want to hear from you!
