Attention geeks!

Especially Star Wars geeks. Or geeks with children (though that's hardly necessary).

Just saw a link for this product, which is the coolest, smartest damn piece of Star Wars memorabilia that there is. I proudly present:

The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag (click pics to enlarge):


























Check out that attention to detail. Intestinal macaroni lining, lightsaber zipper. Awesome. I want one.

You gotta read the product details to fully embrace it. Included is this bonus, listed under "Product Features:"

"* Teach your children about the best Star Wars movie ever"

OH... MY...

Screw the kids, that sucker is MINE!

Saw this last night. So awesome. They better get the licensing to make this a reality. Lucas could really use the royalties.

Haha, that surely is a nice accessory. Actually, it looks kind of comfortable ! :-)

Reel Whore: I'm relatively sure it IS real. Thinkgeek is on online nerd store, so... yeah.

Nick - Every April 1st, ThinkGeek puts out a bunch of April Fools products. Most of them are pretty cool or funny. None of them are ever real though.

And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.

"Hoth" was the only location listed under the availability section. Should have probably been a tip off. (Though I didn't notice it yesterday)

Thinkgeek has a statement up now that thanks to the overwhelming demand, they're going to try to make it a reality.

Nick said...

Ah... well then. I guess I thought it was just too brilliant to be a joke. Most things at thinkgeek are just that brilliant, so...

Nic Cage said...

Damnit! I thought it was real.

Cesia said...

I love this! But the Squeez Bacon was pretty good too.

Have you given up on the Survivor blog yet again?

What's the deal here?

Fletch said...

Dang, Kane! For once I don't do a live blog and I'm hearing it 12 hours later. ;)

No, I didn't quit, there were just some extranneous circumstances last night that kept me from using the laptop. I will be rolling a short recap into TGITDNMAR later today.

Glad you're worried.

You almost got me. But then I noticed the date. Nice try. Really, well done.
