What started off as a cruel, cruel joke has turned into reality.
For April Fool’s Day this year, online geek supplier ThinkGeek.com put up a fake listing for a Star Wars Tauntaun sleeping bag. Complete with an internal intestine-like patten and a lightsaber zipper pull, the bag references the scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo slices open the bipedal beast and places a frostbitten Luke Skywalker among its entrails to keep him warm on the planet Hoth.
Star Wars dorks like myself were fooled and saddened by the prank, but following a huge response from fans, ThinkGeek went out and sought a license from Lucasfilm to actually make them.
That brings us to now. My pre-ordered Tauntaun sleeping bag arrived in the mail over Thanksgiving break, and what follows are photos of the unboxing:
The Tauntaun sleeping bag is available at ThinkGeek.com for $99, though it’s currently backordered.
