I wrote before about the wonderfulÂ April FoolsÂ Tauntaun sleeping bag that was made by the website ThinkGeek. Â Well, it looks like they’re closing on in making it into a reality. Â ClickÂ hereÂ to get more details.
One of the things that I like most about this item is that it was made by fans for a gag, just for fun. Â Then, when it was released to the public the public responded by DEMANDING that it become a reality. Â LOOK AT IT! Â Who wouldn’t want to play Luke Skywalker and use the little lightsaber zipper to cut open their fallen Tauntaun steed so they could climb inside and keep warm on the frozen planet of Hoth? Â 😀
Currently listed as “Out of Stock”, I suspect that they are gathering emails as a way to take a pre-orders. They are offering the sleeping bag for $99.00 and hope to be shipping a limit number of this initial run in November. (Perfect timing for Christmas and plenty of snow play). Also of note in the product description is the following, “Enough room for adults, plenty of space for kids”.by
