30 Years of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK - part 9

Need a last minute gift idea for mother's day?

Imagine her curled up on the sofa snuggled into her very own tauntaun sleeping bag?

Begun as an April Fool's joke, the tauntaun sleeping bag may be the greatest bit of merchandising to come out of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Not only is it a big cuddly, fuzzy, saddled tauntaun that you can sleep in, using it's head for a pillow...

...but in delightful detail, the zipper pull is a reproduction of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, and when pulled down, reveals the interior of the sleeping bag which is lined with printed intestine cloth. Now you can recreate the moment when Han slit open his dead tauntaun's belly and shoved Luke inside the intestines to keep him warm. Find out for yourself whether they truly smell worse on the inside.

You can order one from the folks at Think Geek
