A Wampa Rug For Every Home

It all started as a joke. April 1st came along and among the virgin sacrifices, the denizens of the internet demanded clever fake news stories. I once had Pete draw up McFarlane extreeeeme sketches for their new Hanna Barbera line depicting Fred Flintstone as a blood thirsty cave man and Quick Draw McGraw as a humanoid horse with bulging biceps and a blaster the size of Rob Liefeld. We got some legal papers sent over. No sense of humor...but that..is another story. THIS story is about the Taun Taun sleeping bag, in which a small boy slumbered, dreaming of one day bedding his own Slave Leia. It was soft and warm and the inside looked like intestines!! This item became so popular, the dark wizards of ThinkGeek were forced to create a limited number to appease the hordes attacking the castle gates...and so it was, I came to own the greatest sleeping bag ever made. When I showed a friend, she mentioned that all I needed now was a Wampa skin rug to go with it. Little did we know...my Taun Taun was bugged.

Today, we received a letter and pictures left with a lovely decorative knife in my door...

Here at ThinkGeek we pride ourselves on offering nifty products covering all aspects of the Empire Strikes Back story... since it is the 30th anniversary and all. Last year we launched the coveted Tauntaun sleeping bag, allowing children of all ages to nestle safe in the guts of a tauntaun.

Now as a sort of product-based prequel we give you this amazing "bear rug" style Wampa. As you may recall from Empire, before Luke was preserved inside a dead Taun Taun he had a fight with a hideous Wampa snow beast in the mountain caves of Hoth. Now you can catch your own Wampa and take him home to decorate your swank bachelor pad. The Star Wars fangirls will love the high-quality synthetic fur, plush pillow head and fearsome claws. Dimensions: 62" long x 30" wide

AMAZING. Keep watching ThinkGeek for the pre-order to go live...or just sign up for an email when project Wamparug is complete.
