The Flickr alias Ginger Troll 'Potato Daddy' photo collection revamps the classic childhood toy Mr. Potato Head. Ginger Troll has definitely given Mr. Potato Head some serious upgrades and alterations to his traditional attire, as this sculpture is decked out in futuristic battle gear and metal-finished armor. Although wielding a pretty intimidating drill-like weapon, this figurine is still adorably cute.

With what appears to be a jet pack on his back, glow-in-the-dark goggles and a metallic chest plate, this childhood trinket is ready for some serious combat. In a few of the 'Potato Daddy' images 'Mr. Potato Daddy' is seen battling it out with another toy, also holding a similar daring drilling weaponry. Let's hope this classic toy's new upgrades protect him from the battles ahead.
