maybe I'm crazy.... but does anyone else think that a Mr. Potato head would be a great base to build a stompa around?? I'm thinking specifically the body and feet. The nose and glasses could probably go... :P Has anyone tried this?

I think it is possible, it would be awesome base to build some armor off of. The feet would need some work to make them look more stompy.
:cheers

Gentlemen...welcome to the Lorax effect.. those wishing to learn it be warned...part of the process involves snorting a gerbil and whacking yourself with a clawhammer.

This has gotta be one of the most insane ideas I've ever seen, but hey insanity is fun! Seriously though, I'm a lil doubtful that it would work, especially if someone wanted to preserve the Mr. Potato Head look. However if someone did successfully build a Stompa that looked like an orky Mr. Potato Head, I'd probably have to buy them a drink

Leave the nose as a shout out to its heritage! You'll need some serious armour plates going on there, because right now the Mr. Potato head I know of is much to round to be orky

That deserves a good 'ol hearty "Brilliant!" and of course the promised drink should it ever be built :thumbs

One of the best ways to sum up the ork mentality I have ever heard.

DEFINATELY go with daemoncow's plan! If you don't, I will.

Sounds weird at fist but actualy this is a great idea. Make sure you keep its rounded shape n just clad it in thin plasticard. This will be a bit of a job what with having to Supa Gloo all the plates on. But after that the rest should be simple.

Excellent idea - though you'd have to come up with a clever way to fit the belly gun in. Maybe it could come out of the mouth...
But see, amid the mimic rout
A crawling shape intrude!

I'd say, try and keep some of the roundness to the body and square out the feet. But, whatever you do, KEEP THE HAT!!! :yes :yes :yes

I have a TOP SECRET project on the back burna....I will be looting ideas! Some great looking plans worked out already. Please give him a big metal mustache to go with his Iron Gob. It should count as a D class weapon.

Not that I want to sound like an expert on the Potato Head thing, but that one photo shown is an old one. New M.P.H's have removable plug in arms... making a perfect port to plug in your orky arms! There are also a lot of fun new ones such as Darth Tater, R2-Potaa2, Spud Trooper and more, which all have some neat parts that could make a spiffy conversion! Dang you! Now I want one too!! One question, would that be a stompa which rules would you use? :thumbs

The finished product NEEDS to have swappable parts. I'm thinking build the core shape, making it look Orky and all, but have some magnets located under the surface in certain locations (eyes, mouth, belly gun, hat) so the 'accessories' can be swapped around (bonus laffs for in-game hijinks). That, it needs a name. I suggest the Masha.
