Having already released several Mr. Potato Head Star Wars crossover toys over the past few years, Hasbro has decided to let PPW Toys give it a try. From the looks of the photos I'd say they are going to do very well.



MR. POTATO HEAD travels to a galaxy far, far away with an all-new line of Star Wars Collectible Figures. Under license from HASBRO INC. and DISNEY CONSUMER PRODUCTS, PPW TOYS is releasing a line of Star Wars MR.POTATO HEAD figures starting summer of 2014.

These Star Wars Spuds are highly detailed, fully-functioning collectible toys with a variety of fun components to mix and match. Detachable pieces include lightsabers, blasters, body-armor and costumes. Designed with collectors in mind, these unique toys will be a must-have for fans of all ages – whether for play or display.

The first wave includes four classic Star Wars characters: R2-D2, Yoda, Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with these two very important, iconic brands and we plan to take full advantage of the Star Wars universe of characters” says Dean Gorby, Business Manager for PPW TOYS. “Although several characters have already received the MR. POTATO HEAD treatment by HASBRO, our line was designed with collectors in mind from the start. We love what our team has created so far and are fired-up about the next wave of characters already in the works.”

This product will be available at specialty retailers and e-tailers in the US, Canada and Europe Summer 2014.

Created in 1952, MR. POTATO HEAD, the first toy to be featured in a television commercial, became an instant hit with youngsters. Over the past 60 years, the beloved character has emerged as an American icon, a true evergreen brand with broad demographic appeal.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
