Mr. Potato Head Rejoins ‘Star Wars’ To Become ‘The Yamdalorian’

Mr. Potato Head is the ultimate non-binary plaything. He can be anything to anyone at any time. He can even be Mrs. Potato Head. With the right parts, the decades-old Hasbro toy can turn into any amalgamation of made-up or licensed beings. Now, the spud has decided to take up the role of protector and bounty hunter. Yes, the starchy one is now The Yamdalorian.

Mr. Potato Head’s The Mandalorian edition comes with 14 pieces and includes a little red-nosed Grogu. While the little green guy isn’t exactly shaped like a potato, he does retain the same eyes and nose as the classic toy. Sadly, none of the parts are swappable, so he’s basically an accessory for the main toy.

Mr. Potato Head is aimed at children 20 and up. So, you know what that means? Every collector in his 40s will be buying these things up to keep in mint, unopened condition for decades to come!

I like the idea of the Mandalorian being just some bald guy with a great mustache underneath all that Beskar armor. Too bad they went with that other guy. I’m all yamed out, folks. Mandotato Head will cost $15.99 and is available for pre-order right now over at the Big Bad Toy Store. He’ll be sprouting up into stores this February.

Potato isn’t a stranger to the Star Wars franchise. He’s been Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Luke, R2-D2, Kylo Ren, a stormtrooper, and more. I am surprised we haven’t had a Star Wars Potato Day TV special yet with CGI spuds reenacting the entire saga. Oh, no! I’ve given Disney an idea they’ll surely run with and cause even further tears in the fandom!

What have I done?!

Oh, well. What do you think of the tater toyline and its link to the Star Wars franchise? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
