We felt a strange disturbance in the Force when the first consignment of these wonderful characters arrived for testing at gadgetshop HQ. For there was something eerily realistic about dressing a plastic potato as an Imperial Stormtrooper, complete with laser masher for added authenticity (set to stun to spare the skin of the Princess, naturally). For there's simply no mistaking the somewhat startling news that Mr Potato Head has gone over to the dark side to become the ever-faithful, armour-clad henchman of Darth Tater. Indeed, it took our colleague Geoff some while to accept this as hard fact. But he took it like a man in the end.Now, with the Jedi in retreat and Tater's shock troops - and potatoes - spreading out across the Galaxy with mashers at the ready, few can stand in their way without fearing a dashed good chipping. And, when the fun has been had and the Rebel Alliance crushed, the Spud Trooper's many parts and accessories stow neatly inside his potatoey body. Which is thoughtful of him. Beware. The Force is strong in this one.
The fries are strong in this one!
From a galaxy far, far away came the hit saga we all came to love and know as Star Wars. Since the original movie hit the screens in 1977, people have been enthralled by the galactic struggle between Good Vs Evil, and to celebrate the release of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, Mr. Potato head has embraced the roots of evil and turned to the dark side!
Darth Vader had stormtroopers to protect him, so it's only natural that SpudTroopers would be created to serve Darth Tater. "Freeze or I'll mash you!" The mighty SPUD TROOPERS have sworn their allegiance to Darth Tater. Now the Rebel Alliance must flee to keep them from getting fried!
Never underestimate the power of the Spud, Darth Tater may be the root of all evil, but SpudTrooper is the eyes and ears of the Empire. However, in a duel between the two, it would probably end up in a fry!
SpudTrooper comes with a mask, a potato masher, a set of teeth, a nose, a set of ears and eyes, a potato body, a pair of shoes, and two arms.
So will you join SpudTrooper and become a 'chip' off the old block of evil?
