    Sources over at Yahoo.com have reported that the estate of Elvis Presley has signed a deal with Hasbro and PPW Toys to release an Elvis Presley version of the popular Mr. Potato Head toy. The King as a spud? Will he have a black leather jumpsuit a la the '68 Comeback Special? A white suit with studs and bell-bottomed sleeves and pants? A military version of The King? The possibilities are indeed endless.

    The spuds will be unveiled during August's Elvis Tribute Week. And turns out, the Elvis Potato Head will be decked out in a jumpsuit. A second potato head will be released during the holidays in a black leather jumpsuit! Will it have big pouty lips and a slicked back, greased up pompadour?

    What other rock 'n' roll icon should be immortalized in as Mr. (or Mrs.) Potato Head? I'd love to see the get ups on a Lady Gaga or James Brown potato head.
