L.A. Weekly checks in with the progress of making ThinkGeek’s April Fools TaunTaun sleeping bag a reality. Thinkgeek PR guy Shane Peterman says:
We are definitely trying to make it in to an actual item to be sold on our site. As of right now, it’s still an “if,” but it’s turning in to more of a “when.” Things are looking pretty good, we just don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. There’s certainly been enough of a demand, both from customers and from those of us that work here. Right now, we’re aiming to have it available for the holidays, or at the latest, the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back next spring.
But what of Lucasfilm?
We’re still working with Lucas to get approval for a final design. Again, it’s looking good, we just can’t say too much right now since it’s still in the works.
Well, we’re patient.
