ThinkGeek.com TaunTaun Sleeping Bag

This was originally an April Fool's joke by ThinkGeek.com, but apparently the response was so overwhelming they are now looking to see if Lucasfilm would allow them to produce it.  I'm not sure if that would happen or not, but the mockup pic they have on there is pretty good - and I think it is a pretty funny idea.  Just thought I'd pass it along if anyone hadn't seen it.

Boy, they freaking nailed it.  Lightsaber zipper... intestine lining... just enough detail on the outside to pull off the look without ruining the basic sleeping bag shape or function... that's a seriously high quality fake product.

That's hysterical.  I have to get these for my sons when they come out.
