Super Impulse, maker of World’s Smallest and other miniature toys and collectibles, has created a new mashup combining the Potato Head from Hasbro with a series of pop culture classics, to create new collectibles.

The four new collectibles include Gene Simmons of KISS, Transformers’ Optimus Prime, Bob Ross and Garbage Pail Kid, Adam Bomb. Each Poptater includes an authentic Potato Head featuring interchangeable facial and body parts, including one surprise original piece. 

“Potato Head is an instantly recognizable icon, a toy that most of us had as kids,” says Alan Dorfman, co-founder, Super Impulse. “Poptaters is the perfect iconic update for the 2020s – fun and funny. We are 

co-branding with very recognizable, fan-favorite personalities to create a line of hilarious figures. And the more you collect, the more mix and match options there are among the characters.”  

Available on Amazon.com and at other retailers, the figures have 4-inch bodies that nearly double in size with accessories and include transparent, stackable collector display packaging. The mashups are also available in portable 2-inch keychains. Series 2 is expected to launch this spring with Sonic The Hedgehog, The Office Dwight, The Big Lebowski “The Dude” and Good Luck Trolls.
