The tauntaun was used on Hoth as a pack animal and for transportation... but in a pinch, you can also sleep inside their warm guts.

Now, you can recreate that great "Empire Strikes Back" moment -- without all the messy tauntaun guts. ThinkGeek has created the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, featuring a lightsaber pull-zipper and a tauntaun-head pillow.

If it sounds like a joke, that's because it was -- the company initially put the product on its site as an April Fool's prank, but the overwhelming response led to the real thing. It's expected to be available in early November for $99.
