A mash made in heaven? Marvel reveal new Mr Potato Head heroes…

February 12th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Ever since the Mr Potato Head Darth Vader we here at FTN have loved the idea of our favourite characters as, well, spuds…

Marvel have just released images of the latest Mr Potato Head characters… Thor, Wolverine and Iron Man.

Here’s the full press release and images:

MR. POTATO HEAD is ready to save the world as MARVEL’S WOLVERINE, IRON MAN and THOR

Los Angeles, CA (February 11, 2013) – MR. POTATO HEAD gets ready to slice, blast and smash into action as he takes on the Marvel Universe in a series of collectible toys launching Summer 2013.

Under license from HASBRO INC. and MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT, PPW TOYS is launching a line of MR. POTATO HEAD figures wearing the costumes of the beloved MARVEL Super Heroes! These unique collectible- toys will initially be previewed at the upcoming NY Toy Fair in February.

 Although several Marvel characters have already received the MR. POTATO HEAD treatment by HASBRO (Spider-Man and Iron Man), the PPW TOYS line of figures is targeting fans and collectors.

 Like other co-licensed Spuds developed from PPW Toys, the new Marvel line is being designed with collectors in mind from the start. The attention to detail, scale and consistent design elements will make these a must-have for both MR POTATO HEAD and MARVEL fans of all ages. The Spuds are fully-functioning collectible toys with a variety of fun components to mix and match, or collectors can proudly display them thanks to their compact size and design intricacy.

The line-up for 2013 includes WOLVERINE, IRON MAN, and THOR and the line will be available at specialty retailers and e-tailers starting Summer 2013.

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

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
