Sings da theme toon
Indiana Jones. Professor of archaeology, expert on the occult, obtainer of rare antiquities and...er, dead ringer for a tubby comedy potato! It's true because everyone's favourite whip-cracking action hero has been given the root vegetable treatment in the shape of Mr Potato Head: Taters of the Lost Ark.
This fantastically daft movie/potato tie-in comes with all the accoutrements associated with the good doctor, including that famous fedora hat, leather jacket and bullwhip. He's even brandishing a gold-coloured idol like the one from the legendary opening scene. You'll be so impressed your head is liable to implode like Belloq's after he opened the Ark and saw all those dirty peelings.
Speaking of Raiders of the Lost Ark (which we were, kind of), this tomb-raiding spud will play three different segments from the movie's rousing theme tune every time you press his hat; hold it down and you'll hear the whole shebang. All together now, 'Daa-da-da-daaa...'
Vegetarian-friendly faux leather jacket
As well as his Indiana Jones gear, Mr Potato Head: Taters of the Lost Ark comes with non-heroic essentials such as shoes, ears, teeth and a mouth. And that's just as well because he'll need his faculties firmly in place when he's fleeing from that big King Edward you keep rolling towards him. In fact, when it comes to creating ridiculous Raiders-style scenarios, the possibilities are endless. Why not chuck your spud in a pit filled with worms posing as snakes, or re-enact that famous Nepalese bar room brawl by adopting a comedy German accent, slipping on a leather trenchcoat and giving Mr Potato Head a good going over.
Gold coloured idol spud
If play acting's not your bag you can plonk this daring potato on your desk and re-arrange his features to your heart's content whilst quoting lines from the movie: 'Dr. Jones, again we see there is nothing you can possess which I cannot take away.' He really is a must-have plaything for any fan of root vegetables disguised as iconic movie heroes. And that means you! How odd that it should end this way for us after so many stimulating encounters.
