You knew it was coming!



Quote :
To coincide with the release of the new movie “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” Hasbro will release the all new Mr. Potato Head: Taters of the Lost Ark! The toy will officially hit stores on May first, but I know it will be a huge hit at the Toy Fair in February. The toy comes with 12 mix-and-match parts inspired by Indiana Jones, including the jacket, whip and famous fedora.

Yeah, there are a few issues with this spud. The hat has the wrong bash, the whip isn't flexible, and the Golden Tater Tot is just... weird. But I think this will make a fun toy nonetheless.

Well I guess now we can all "hold on to our potatoes!" short

But seriously, what's with the clown nose... and his...uh..."feminine" way of holding the whip? ha.

The more I look at this, the more I don't care for it. Overall, there's not an accurate piece of gear on him.

Hat: Teardrop bash / funky ribbon
Jacket: Potato skin?
Ears: Harrison's don't stick out that far...
Eyes: Standard, no biggie
Nose: Jonesy nailed it. Clown nose
Smirk: Doesn't even cover the basic grin lines on the head
Shoes: Not quite the moc toe of Alden
Hands: Sipping tea with granny?
Whip: Should be flexible. Looks odd coiled solid
Idol: Looks more like a Chicken McNugget.

Y'know, I wasn't planning to be so critical of this. But Hasbro should be able to get better details, as they are doing the main toy line. Yes, I'm aware it's a Preschool toy, but so are the Adventure Heroes, and they look awesome.

Thanks, Hasbro. You just saved me a few bucks. clap

Well if you want you can use it as a make shift Sankara stone. Just remove all the pieces and there you go!
