Not sure if this is the right place to put this, so please move it if neccesary.

Are they still making these? I have only just started collecting these an think they are great!

I so far have Darth Tater, Spud Trooper and R2-Potatoo. Are there plans for any more?

I can't really think of any other charactors that rhyme with potatos. I thought of WEDGE Antillies, but he's not really a "main" charactor so would have much apPEAL (get it??). I suppose they could make a fullsize Pricess Tater, she would look good with the 2 buns on the side of her head!

Any ideas of what they could do next? Here is a list of potato related words that could be useful:-

Potato
Tater
Spud
Fries
Chip
Wedge
Fritter
Roast
Mash

... I'm sure there are many more quirky words that could be used. Any ideas?

I love the Star Wars Mr. Potato head's. I haven't seen the R2-Potatoo at retail, but I do own several of the other Spuds. From what I've read, they aren't planning on making anymore, though I think they should. I'd very much like to see a:

Tusken Tater

No more Star Wars taters are planned. I'd love to see at least accessory sets (Boba Fett and Threepio are just asking to be made).

There are Optimus Prime and Spider-Man spuds on the way though.

Off-topic, but Hasbro is making MLB Potato Heads with team jerseys, hats, and baseball accessories. I saw the Chicago Cubs head at TRU today. The "Sports Spuds (http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2558497)" are smaller than the Star Wars heads and are packaged in a clamshell.

They are smaller yet cost more. Gee, I guess MLB costs more to license than Lucas.:rolleyes:

Well thanks for clearing that up for me guys, doesn't look like my collection will be growing in the near future then.

Wel they could also make a Luke Frywalker since they mentioned him on the back of the R2- Potatoo box. the could even make a Anakin Frywalker as well.

I checked again today and TRU's price is $10 for these things. Check out the sports-spuds.com (http://sports-spuds.com/) for more team info. Looks like Hasbro has NBA and NHL licenses too.
