Hey guys. Tauntaun Sleeping Bag here.
You might've heard from Consumerist, Gizmodo, Topless Robot or @guykawasaki that I've arrived safely at the ThinkGeek mothership. Who knew a few unboxing photos could stir up so much jibber-jabber?
I just wanted to check in on my journey from Hoth to Realitytown to let you know that all is well at ThinkGeek and they're being very nice, despite being a bunch of over-caffeinated monkeys.
They even treated me to a lunch of fungus and mushrooms that were growing inside their fridge. But I think that was an accident.
For right now, I'm keeping busy with WoW and helping Customer Service answer the phone (I like to pitch in) but I can't wait for my fellow Tauntauns to show up. I'm getting lonely. I mean, I love the attention, being the first one here, but it's not the same.
And from what I can tell, I'm not the only one waiting for my friends to show up. If you want news and photos, you can sign up for email updates here.
So thanks for all the well-wishing, and I'll keep you posted on what's happening here at ThinkGeek HQ!
First Manufactured Tauntaun
P.S. Apparently you can compete for me by entering ThinkGeek's Halloween Pumpkin Template Contest, and you've got until 10/29/09 to submit an entry. (Check out some of my favorites below--including one of me!)
