Found a Spudtrooper!

Last week I went driving around for no particular reason and wound up at the new Wal-Mart Supercenter in Mayodan (I'll refrain from once again ranting about how it makes no sense whatsoever for Rockingham County, North Carolina to have three Wal-Mart Supercenters). Anyway it had just been open for a day so I figured they might have some of the newer Star Wars loot. Including this one thing in particular that I'd been looking for some time now.

And on the Star Wars toy aisle, there it was. I bought it immediately and brought it home. Behold the Spudtrooper...

It has somehow become a big deal among our circle of friends to be able to find a Spudtrooper (helped no doubt by Darth Larry's very disturbing infatuation with Star Wars Mr. Potato Heads). With that in mind I'll post the requisite "meeting" photo between my Darth Tater and Spudtrooper:
They should make a Palpatine Mr. Potato Head: it could be all wrinkly-skinned. But in the meantime I'm just happy to have Darth Tater and the dreaded Spudtrooper sitting atop our TV set where they now reign over our living room.
