Hasbro seems to really be pushing Mr. Potato Head these days. After the Toy Story movies I think he definitely enjoyed a bit of a renaissance and it’s clear the company is trying to keep that momentum going. Their strategy as of late has been releasing the man of spud in various costumes. First we saw a handful of Star Wars related outfits including Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper and R2-D2 and now he’s really going 1980’s style with a full Optimus Prime getup that was just revealed at the UK Toy Fair.
This is hands-down my favorite version of the recent Mr. Potato Head incarnations and if it wasn’t for the fact that my desk already has an authentic Optimus Prime figure standing guard I would definitely add this guy to my collection.
Optimash Prime should be available sometime this year for about $20.
