DC Heroes get the spud treatment this year

The annual Toy Fair is happening this week in New York, and with it comes all sorts of announcements and pictures of various toys you’ll be able to buy later this year, from Avengers Legos to Back to the Future hoverboards.

And joining Spider-Man, Elvis, Optimus Prime, R2D2 and a whole bunch of other pop culture icons in becoming spuds are Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, who get the Mr. Potato Head treatment this year. According to USA Today, the trio of tators is just the tip of the iceberg, as more DC heroes and villains are set to become Potato Heads next year.

Toy Fair kicks off today

Today is not only Valentine’s Day — the day you buy your sweetie a bunch of comics — but also the start of the annual Toy Fair in New York. Last week The Hollywood Reporter had a rundown of licensed toys expected to be “hot” at this year’s show, including, not surprisingly, lines for Toy Story 3 and Iron Man 2.

So what better way to celebrate than to post an image of Tony Starch, a mashed-up potato who combines both of Disney’s big movies into one awesome toy? Cool Toy Review has a whole gallery of new Iron Man toys up, and you can find more Toy Fair images on their site.
