Mr. Potato Head has been around since the early 1950’s, entertaining millions of children with his interchangeable parts. But what if he hadn’t been created in the 50’s, and instead in the alternate universe of the Steampunk world? One crafty artist spent some time thinking on this very topic, and ended up with Sir Spudnik.
This bizarre specimen is a real Mr. Potato head base that has been covered in metallic and brass-like parts. Artist Sarita Maria felt the need to take things a couple of steps further by creating a mock wanted poster, and a very DaVinci-like blueprint for the toy. The best part is that she detailed the entire process over on her Instructables page.
