I'd say I'm embarrassed to tell you how many stores I went to looking for this and how many trips it took me to said stores. But I'm not.

Somewhere somone was saying "This is not the toy you want" .... but I ignored that Obi-Wan-ism and prevailed. Unfortunately I've been on the 'wait list' here @ amazon for months....and no luck (not their fault - Hasbro isn't saturating the market I guess). I refused to pay $20 and up on ebay for a less than $7 toy.

But it's not a toy. It proudly sits on my desk at work for all to admire, "oooh and aaah" over and laugh about. And they do.

I could care less about educational value or durability. It sits on my desk!!!!

(and yes, I bought two!...one to keep in the original packaging.)

In general, I don't support contaminating Mr. Potato Head with mindless marketing madness. But for this, I will make an exception. Darth Tater is just too darned cute. In fact, he's so cute I suspect that he's more a parent's toy than a kid's. I'm also a bit disturbed that Darth only has one outfit. A Potato Head must have at least a couple of alternate face pieces, hats, and equipment to have real play value. But dang, it's cute.

My friends are Star Wars geeks and their little ones follow along. Their 3 year old even hums Darth Vader's theme song. I bought this for his birthday recently. I guess I must be easily amused because just the names got me giggling - Darth Tater and Spud Trooper. I bought Darth at Target and Spud at Giant grocery stores. Darth has a light sabre and Spud has a potato masher. The quality is okay. No different than past Potato Heads. This little boy got a lot of typical boy toys - Buzz LightYear, race car sets, die-cast cars and planes, etc. I figured if nothing else, his parents would get a kick out of them. Well, he played with these taters for hours. Even his 4 year brother along with my 4 year old boy got into it. This toy worked out surprisingly well for us! Highly recommend!

We call our 2 year old grand daughter Tater Tot so this was purchased as a gift for her grandfather. He soon discovered he would not keep it. Tater Tot enjoyed this immensely!! She plays with it for hours and has made it the grandpop of her Tater family.

As a toy it does what a Potato Head should. As a collectible, this is a must for those that fondly remember having one as a child.

I hope this helps.

Got my "Darth Tater" at the mall yesterday! This thing is even funnier "in person" than its picture! A couple of choice lines from the packaging: "Together we shall rule as father & spud!" + "As a Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Tater was once a promising young Jedi who lost his roots!" I've been taking this thing around my office all day and getting tons of laughs! I confess - I'm 35 years old...a bit too old to be buying toys. But this thing was just too hilarious to pass up! Anyone who gets one is sure to enjoy it! (p.s. The arm pins go through the cape to hold it in place)

I was really shocked to read reviews and see that we were the only ones who had a problem with this toy. The peices don't stay in at all!! Mainly the door on the 'behind' compartment, it falls into the body cavity constantly, and once you get it in place, any movement, and it falls again. The peices don't fit right in the holes, and it's not interchangable with regular potato head peices!! They are either too loose or too tight for the body. Very disapointing. And for the person who reviewed this toy to be a bad example for kids, get a grip! It's a toy. You don't like it, don't buy it. I don't think my kids are going to try to take over the galaxy because Mr. Potato Head weilds a red lightsaber.

My fiancee and I went to 2 Toys R Us stores to get 5 of the Taters to distribute among family (all recipients were 25 and older)! It was definitley worth the trip! The idea adds a nice twist to a classic toy and movie. The best part is the lightsaber and mask. I can almost hear him say "Luke I am your Tater." Definitley a must have!

I ordered this months ago, and it finally came yesterday. SO CUTE! I'm also much more popular at my firm, because people keep coming to my office to check out the new spud. Bear in mind, it has the teeth, ears, lips and tongue, but doesn't come with the traditional Mr. Potato Head mustache. You won't miss it.

I have been collecting Mr Potato Head for years ( I probably have the largest collection in the UK ) but this takes things to a new level, I am going to love this one, I think you could quite easily go further and get a stormtrooper, rebel pilot, even a princess lea using mrs P, rock on Hasbro, I will buy loads

This toy caught my eye and I, the parent, had to buy it. Yes, I am guilty. It is limited in parts, but so is the regular "potato head" when you buy it. It is priced about the same, so you choose. It turned out to be a good thing for me because I have 2 kids and had only 1 "potato head" at home. We already have a silly suitcase loaded with parts. It was win win for us. We now "have it all". I would like to suggest to the toy makers to make a deluxe Star Wars potato head. Ideally it would come with Leia's hairbuns, Yoda's ears, a stormtrooper helmet, Jar Jar ears, etc. (You get the picture)
