Fake tauntaun sleeping bag just might come to life!

It was all over the Internet on April Fools' Day--and now there's ever so slight a chance the dream product could become a reality. I want it! I want it!

That tauntaun sleeping bag that was all over the Internet on April Fools' Day just might go from being a geek dad's dream to being a real product. Think Geek has updated the fake product listing page with this information:

ATTN Tauntaun Fanatics! Due to an overwhelming tsunami of requests from YOU THE PEOPLE, we have decided to TRY and bring this to life. We have no clue if the suits at Lucasfilms will grant little ThinkGeek a license, nor do we know how much it would ultimately retail for. But if you are interested in ever owning one of these, click the link below and we'll try!

That's right, friends: If Think Geek can sort it out with Uncle George, then this thing might be real. I totally want one, and I don't even have a kid. And I just really, really hope this isn't part two of the joke.
