Looks good i would suggest to start focusing a bit more on texturing now start using bump maps and more detailed textures for adding a bit more detail.

Oh and on the Mr Potato head are his arms on the wrong way round?!

Bump map is exactly how it sounds a map of bumps. where there are light spots its raised where its dark its lowered. (although that can be flipped). when i have some more time i will explain more but for now just do a search on some texturing tutorials.
