Weirdest movie-related promo item you own?

I am curious to see what odd promotional items people on this forum own. The only weird thing I own is a cereal box for the John Waters' movie Serial Mom. I don't have a pic of it now, but I will put it up when I get a chance.

So, what do you have and how do you display it?

(Mods, not sure if this is the correct forum or not. Please move if it isn't)

Most of the odd promo items I have sitting around are from DVD releases - like the bar of soap for "Fight Club" and the brain-shaped "stress ball" that you squeeze for "Hannibal".

I have a 4 foot tall VHS stand for video stores for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, with little plastic propellers for the plane and everything. It's kinda 3d! Heh, not sure why I kept it so long...used to be a huge Indy fan when I was a kid.

Miniature tool set with "The Borrowers" printed on it.
Kicking myself for not snagging the blow-up thingy for "Bubble Boy"- it was a small replica of the bubble suit with arms and legs and the name of the movie on it.

From my old video store days, I still have a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas shot glass, a Boogie Nights coaster, a Frighteners pen and a Nightwatch flashlight (clever). None of these are really weird, but cool none the less (especially the shot glass).

I love my "pencil" from Dumb and Dumber with erasers on both tips. I keep it on my desk at work.

Dont think its weird but I got a pair of 3d glasses and a plastic replica of the Freddy Kruger glove back when Freddy's Dead came out. I think the glove was just the one they sold for Haloween back then and maybe even now but it was free w/ the movie when we saw it early.

It's not so weird, but it's the largest: a two-foot, 4-inch thick square post branded Walking Tall.

That and a Bride of Chucky rubber head mask.

I got a big bag of replicas of those drug statues from Traffic. They must have sent me 30 of them.

And no, they didn't actually contain drugs.

I have a set of Chow Yun Fat stamps, it's actually pretty cool.

I also have that scary looking Ralphie bobble-head doll from the Christmas Story set.

Wow. That's my favorite so far. Did you ever have one of those lazy days where you just feel like using it?

A tin of Jiffy Pop with Scream artwork on the cover and a mini-tin of Altoid-like mints for Gosford Park. I also used to have a Soul Food oven mitt, but I can't remember what happened to it.
