Vinylmation Speculation with Mike Boon: Toy Story 2 Mr. and Mrs Potato Head

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We’d like to welcome back Mike Boon for another series of Vinylmation Speculation. Last time we saw his thoughts and designs on future Muppets series. This week we’ll see his ideas for a second Toy Story vinylmation series. Each day this week we’ll see two new designs, ending on Saturday with a design he thinks will make a great chaser. As with last time, All these figures look great and we are proud to show them to the community. Thanks again to Mike Boon!

  Mr. Potato Head
Toy Story (1995)
Voiced by: Don Rickles
Licensing issues with Playskool no doubt put a damper on any attempts to include Mr. Potato Head with Series 1, but he would be a vital addition to a second series. The head of the figure and one ear could be clear plastic along with, perhaps, the feet. This could give the impression of his feet being just barely attached (as on the real Potato Head). The back could either show the inside of his little compartment (for example, his other eyes) or a different expression.
Mrs. Potato Head

Toy Story 2 (1999)
Voiced by: Estelle Harris
If you are going to include Mr, Mrs Potato Head makes for a terrific partner. She’s been designed to complement Mr. Potato Head on the shelf and could be approached in much the same way with options for clear plastic and a possible alternate expression on the back.

“I really like the use of the ears in these two. The contrast of Mr.’s Ears ear symbol with the heart in Mrs.’s is a very nice addition.” – M.C.

Mike Boon joins us every day this week with his speculation of a Toy Story 2 Series vinylmation. For past posts click here. You can also check Mike out at his own blog:

I hope there’s not another TS set. 1 was good but they’re gonna have to use obscure characters and/or characters that look distorted (i.e. above.) Only one I could see would be Slink.
