    I will probably pass on the Stormtater but a Tater Fett would tempt me..

    What about a Palpatato? :p

    I laugh just about every time I see this guy when I walk into the room. That alone has already been worth the money. Anyone else laugh the "good laugh" just by looking at Tater?

    Yup! I love mine. He sits on my top desk shelf, and is looking at me right now.

    There's no Tater in France yet. :_|

    I'd do (nearly :) ) anything to get one.

    Well, the Entertainer here in the UK has him in stock. Their site is [link=http://www.theentertainer.com/pws/Home.ice]here[/link], just search on Tater. They ship internationally and are reliable.

    I went to a walmart in Concord, NC right next to the speedway. There are over 50! Darth Taters. I promise that if you go there they will have one for you, it's only like an hour drive. :D

    If anyone's found one in a Wal-mart, where was he? I've checked three Wally Worlds in my area-so far no luck. :(

    I hope I can find one before all the local yokels here realize how popular he is and buy him in mass stock, then sell him for a ridiculous price. They're good at that. :mad:

    Darnit, I never thought I'd like a tater this much!

    Maybe I should go to the managers of the three WWs and say, "I find your lack of Taters disturbing." ;)

    In lieu of the tater jokes, here's mine:

    "Luke! Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as tater and spud!"

    I found ONE at Kaybee toys in Oprymills Mall in Nashville. I snatched it right up and took it home. I had to open it and check it out and noticed that the back panel that holds everything inside the spud was missing. Very disappointed in the missing piece, but I love the Darth Tater and would buy the Stormtrooper one when it comes out.

    Here on the DFW area in Texas I haven't seen him lately. He is most awesome. I bought one for my desk at school and my 7th graders love changing him up. I wil have to say he is my favorite toy of ROTS line. Maybe a Yoda Tater? Green...yummy!

    I've had him guarding my monitor at work about a week now and I have had a lot of great comments about him. The boss brought his duaghter in and she said it was so cool.

    I've now developed a Mr. Potato head obsession - I find myself having to restrain myself from wanting to buy every Mr. & Mrs. Potatohead that shows up at thrift shops around me....

    Guess I feel Darth Tater needs some fellow tater followers :p


    BTW - I'd LOVE to see a Palpitato! Hee hee hee! :p

    Palpatato. Haha :p

    I'll probably get the Stormtater since I got Darth Tater. I saw lots of them at Wal-Mart in their tent, where I got mine. But after that, I never saw them again.

    It was shown at the Austrailian toy fair IIRC.

    I'll have to find the pics.

    Edit: Found [link=http://www.mousedroid.com/feature/toyfair2005/image/hasbro47.jpg]it[/link] at mousedriod.com. Should of guessed since it was Austrailian and all

    I like the way that he has a potato smasher in his hand instead of a gun. That is freaking funny.

    We need an Obi-Wan Potato.

    Would have been cool if Darth Tater came with alternate Anakin hair etc. lmao... allow us to maim Anakin and rebuild him as Darth Tater!

    After not seeing Darth Tater *anywhere*, I finally found him yesterday at Walmart. He's one cool little spud.
