Ten of the most baffling action figure accessories of all time.Ten of the most baffling action figure accessories of all time.

Move aside Tickle Me Elmo - this year robotic hamsters are all the rage.  The price might be a factor in this as well as these little robots will only set you back about eight or ten bucks. They also leave less of a mess than a real-life hamster, which is nice.

Most of these are actually strange and funny with the lone exception of the 'butter stick'. I'm surprised that this hasn't gained a more widespread popularity worldwide. Portable, easy to apply, and best of all its butter on a freakin' stick.
