Are you ready for Mr. Potato Groot? Perhaps it's time for Daredevil to whip up some mashed justice in Hell's Kitchen? Could you be having a Vision of a spud? Is Star-Lord baking in that long leather trench coat? My friends at PPW Toys have just announced the latest additions to their ever-growing line of PopTaters - a collection of pop culture-inspired MR. POTATO HEAD figures created under license from Hasbro. After bringing forth popular characters like Ant-Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk, four more MARVEL icons are getting the Potato Head treatment, with the titular character from the Netflix Original Series DAREDEVIL joining THE VISION, and two GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (Groot and Star-Lord) as 6" collectible figures. Each of these PopTaters will be available through comic and specialty shops, the PPW Website, or from my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check them out below...

Having several PopTaters in our collection here at Rock Father HQ already, I can certainly recommend picking up a few.
