Will the real Mr. Potato Head please stand up

On February 23, Don Rickles, the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story features, was given a sneak peak at what his alter-ego will look like in real life, or rather audio-animatronics life, when Toy Story Mania opens this summer at both Disneyland’s California Adventure and Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It had been reported that Mr. Potato Head would be able to remove various parts of his body, just as both the toy and movie versions of Mr. Potato Head are able to do. From the above image it indeed appears that Mr. Potato Head will have no trouble getting a grip on himself.

Toy Story Mania will be an interactive style attraction which combines the elements of a video-game and 4-D technology, along with the ability to interact with Toy Story characters.
