You know the new "Mr. Potato Head". I was wondring for those that had if it is fun up close and personal. Fun for a kid and adult. And for me, just cool as a collectible or is it really a piece of turd when handled and not even worth retail price?

Thanks for comments on this...

Same here! I almost bought two, just to keep the one from getting lonely, since it was so cheap. I saw them at ONE WalMart, Toccoa, Ga. I never saw them at any other retail store other than that one, and after that day I haven't seen a single one anywhere.

Is it worth it? Are you trying to get a return on your investment or something?

That was sort of my thought with this thread. It is what it is. Only you can decide if it is 'worth it', but for seven bucks and change, I wouldn't put too much thought into it.

That one was valid. ...Quit at me!)

Good luck finding one anywhere right now. I saw them last month when the ROTS toys went on sale but haven't seen one since. We got one and have been looking for one for my son's teacher (he told her about his and she has to have one for her son).

Picked one up when they were released. Its a cute little toy and looks nice displayed by the Star Wars DVDs. Neat idea by Hasbro IMO.

Just giving this a bump. Amazon (Toys R Us) has them in stock now. I picked up one from Ebay for about the same price with shipping.

We have(might be "had" now) at the Target that I work at last night. I was thinking of buying it but decided against it.
