Elvis, played by Mr. Potato Head

by Jamie Sanford on September 16, 2010

People, it’s a LICENSED ITEM. Priscilla said yes to this! However, I couldn’t have Rockstar Week without Elvis, his legendary excess and ridiculousness is part of what made him great.

Mr. Potato Head is ready to take the stage as he pays tribute to Elvis Presley in this unique collectible toy. The first in a series of Elvis-themed Mr. Potato Head collectibles, this 6” tall figure is the perfect size for playing or proudly displaying. The Spud “King” comes with a variety of components to mix and match including a jumpsuit, shoes, hair, two arms, a guitar and a face with the classic Elvis Presley “snarl”. All the pieces are removable and compatible with future versions of Elvis Mr. Potato Head toys so you can create your own Elvis Spuds that are truly “All Mixed Up”! Ages 2+

Oh boy.

The Elvis version of Mr. Potato Head is a “Shop Elvis” bestseller at $19.99 on ShopElvis.com.

The ThinkGeek Annoyatron

by Jamie Sanford on July 29, 2010

Pointed out on Twitter – I wish I got more recommendations, it makes things so easy! I’m glad I got sent back to ThinkGeek – I hadn’t been in a while and I have a number of GeekPoints to spend.

This small item is the Annoyatron. Here’s the product description:

The Original ThinkGeek Annoy-a-tron would be useless against an army of Snowbots, but it’s very effective at disturbing that guy in the sales department or your “friend” down the hall. With its thin design and embedded magnet for easy hiding, the Annoy-a-tron can be placed in a variety of locations. Select one of the three sound choices (2 kHz, 12 kHz, or alternating) and push the switch to the on position. Place it in a proper hiding spot and let the “fun” begin.

The Annoy-a-tron generates a short (but very annoying, hence the name) beep every few minutes. Your unsuspecting target will have a hard time ‘timing’ the location of the sound because the beeps will vary in intervals ranging from 2 to 8 minutes. The 2kHz sound is generically annoying enough, but if you really really want to aggravate somebody, select the 12 kHz sound. Trust us. The higher frequency and slight ‘electronic noise’ built into that soundbyte will make a full-grown Admin wonder where his packets are.

So basically, this is MEAN. It could be entertaining for a while though.  The Annoyatron is available from ThinkGeek for $9.99 for a single item.
