On the one year anniversary of the Great Tauntaun Riot of 2009, many satisfied Star Wars fans have at last acquired their Tauntaun sleeping bags. I checked back recently with ThinkGeek and found these customer photos on their site.


The level of commitment in the ones sleeping out in the snow is particularly impressive, especially given the fact that the final product doesn't exactly look snowproof or even waterproof.

A few folks are starting their kids on the road to fandom early.

If you're looking at these photos and recognize your nerdy self and want your name in the credits, email me and I'll post it.
