No fans = No Nerdbastards.com.

There is no way to show just how much we appreciate you, but we got something today that’s very close to doing just that.

So, let me ask you. Have you heard of the Taun Taun Sleeping Bag? Yes, the elusive Star Wars Taun Taun Sleeping Bag. Originally a Thinkgeek.com April Fool’s joke that got such a high demand for it’s invention they got it made.

The Taun Taun Sleeping Bag is a slick throwback to the Star Wars saga which honors it with it’s innovativeness as well as sheer, thick, quality. You lay it out and the arms and legs are external as well as the tail, and when you use the lightsabre zipper to slice it down open and hop in, the warm innards are soft and the design pattern is the guts of the poor slashed creature! Crawl inside, “It may smell, but it’ll keep you warm” Han Solo would say, and lay your head down on the TaunTaun’s built in pillow head!

More on ThinkGeek.com and the Taun Taun Sleeping Bag AFTER THE JUMP

Slumber in the Belly of the Beast

In the sub-zero wasteland of the planet Hoth, only the strong survive… and of course those lucky Jedi protected by the thick skin of a Tauntaun. Now after exhaustive movie viewing research and analysis ThinkGeek Labs has isolated the exact synthetic compounds needed to re-create Tauntaun fur. What have we done with this supreme knowledge? Created a Tauntaun sleeping bag of course.

This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, printed internal intestines, and a plush lightsaber zipper pull. Now when your kids tell you their favorite Star Wars movie is “Attack of the Clones” you can nestle the wee-ones snug in simulated Tauntaun fur while regaling them with the amazing tale of “Empire Strikes Back”.

Use the plush lightsaber zipper pull on the Tauntaun sleeping bag to illustrate how Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from certain death in the freezing climate of Hoth by slitting open the belly of a dead Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the stinking (but warm) carcass. If your kids don’t change their tune on which Star Wars film is the greatest ever, you can do your best Jar Jar impression until they repent.
