From joke to delivery of finished product in 8 months' time! The wonderful folks at ThinkGeek were able to get permission to actually make the damned thing, we put in our order, and our tauntaun arrived today!
He's really soft, and he's kind of bulky when rolled up because of his plush leg and arm. And yes, the detail is awesome.
And the tauntaun comes with its own certificate of authenticity. I love it!
But the tauntaun is not just awesome-looking. It's practical and comfortable too.
The husband is 6' tall, and he fits just fine inside the tauntaun.
And how is Orkid dealing with our new pet? She just commandeered the box - jumped in and sat in it until we had to put the tauntaun away.
Want your own tauntaun? Well, they've sold out of two shipments already, but you can put yourself on the list for the third shipment.
