Cute???? What in the world will it ever take to convince Elvis fans that these two sluts do NOT CARE about Elvis?????

Hasn't he been enough of a laughing stock???? Mr. Potato head???

Lisa and Priscilla are still just saying "Gimme the Money Honey". That's all that matters about Elvis to them!!!!

Lisa and Priscilla can go sleep for all I care, this is disgusting and I do not think I would like this if I was Elvis. Are you kidding me? Forget Graceland and and anything that will these 2 wenches make money, I will only endorse products from other people who own rights to things concerning Elvis and I am not even really a fan of his, but I think this is insulting. Screw Priscilla it more her than LMP.

It's funny how someone who says she is not really a fan can see when Elvis has been degraded and minimized by Lisa and Priscilla, but people who call themselves Elvis fans will go to any lengths to make excuses for the way these two have allowed Elvis' memory to be treated.

"JUST GIMMIE THE MONEY, HONEY!"

All Priscilla needs to make her happy in life is Elvis' money, publicity for herself, and another woman's husband to sleep with.

Then she's happy.

What's the big deal?

There's absolutely nothing wrong with this at all.

EPE, rightly, wants Elvis to reach to people of all ages, and young children certainly are generally unaware of him.

Elvis wouldn't have minded.

What about all the Elvis-related crap that was around in the fifties?

The Potato Head is a part of American culture (it was featured in Toy Story of course) and so is Elvis Presley.

It isn't tasteless or offensive.

It's fine.

Who am i to judge pris or lisa? I guess i see things in a different light.I think we all have Pris to thank for having acess to Graceland like we do. I don't agree with everything they do, but hey there's not a thing i can do about it!!!!!!!! Like i said it could be worse.Elvis never seem to mind all the other stuff put out there and that Love Me Tender doll was just plain ugly. Hopefully it will help encourage future Elvis fans!!!!!

I hate it, but the reality is that it's no different than the ELvis dolls, purses, lipsticks and other crap that Park sold and licensed in the 1950s

with Elvis's name, picture and song titles

Making Elvis into Mr. Potato Head is far different from making dolls of Elvis as Elvis, etc. Mr. Potato Head is insulting.

And the stuff that came out in the fifties was all flattering, not like this.

You are not going to make future Elvis fans by making ugly and insulting figurines of him. What gets new fans is seeing his handsome face and hearing his good music. Not thinking of him as Mr. Potato head.

And yes, I think we do have a right to judge Priscilla and Lisa. This is their fault.

As far as thanking Priscilla for letting us into Graceland, that is to line her own pocket and get her own face on television.

And if she had not broken Elvis emotionally, he would be alive and healthy now, and we would not need to be touring the home of a dead man.

Observer Rules has never been any place but up the coast with Phillip Lean and back down to Sydney after spending the night with him. What the hell she is going on about no one knows.

I don't have to go to Graceland to know that if Priscilla had not broken Elvis emotionally, he would be alive and well right now, and we would not be touring the home of a dead man.

And what is wrong with the fifties items?
i so happen to collect them.
lol
I would agree that the Mr.Potato Head may bring young kids into the world of Elvis.
There is a lot worse items that EPE has allowed out that is worse then Potato Head. Like Love Me Tender singing Toilet paper.

Prissy sent Elvis to an early grave? That i do not agree with , and i am not a Pris fan. Elvis had Linda after Pris so there was to much time in between to say she caused his early death.
That i would blame on Dr Nick and Elvis himself.
just my opinion

Really there's not a lot wrong with the 50's stuff in my opnion EXCEPT that Love me tender doll. I think it looks like a cupid head with some western clothes on,but i guess it was cool for the 50's. I have seen some awsome 50's memorabilia. The record player is awsome. The Elvis skirt is something i would love to have. The jewlery is great. I would wear that skirt everytime i visited Graceland if i had one.

Absolute nonsense, and the ravings of only the most deluded of fans.

Millions of men have their wives walk out on them and go through divorce, and Elvis was no different.

"Broken Elvis emontionally"? BROKEN?!!! You are quite ridiculous indeed.

Elvis wasn't even in proper love with the woman. The worst thing about it was not seeing Lisa as much, but he got over that to.

You're quite deluded.

Thanks joe! The one (skirt) they have at Graceland looks small also. I love the 50s memorabilia exhibit in the tropy room , i love all the gold , platinum records and grammy's and all but that memorabilia exhibit must really take some of the older fans back in time. They say the presley's never threw anything away, when you look at all the stuff they have there you can agree.

well, people collect what they collect

and no decade has the ownership of tacky

pictures on plates? tacky, no matter what the image is.

the fifties items were also tacky and exploitation

it takes away from the artistic work
