    Not sure if anyone else has seen one of these babies up close, but I have and it really is incredible. I have one in hand and I can say without hesitation that this tauntaun has officially become my coolest Star Wars item EVER. It really is an awesome thing to behold, I can't wait to get working on the kit I just got. I'm thinking tauntaun Halloween costume!!!

    Thanks so much Bill for the kind words and your biz. I too have thought of a walk around type costume, wouldn't be too hard to make some stilts and a body bag of fur. If you go for it please post pics and WIP's so we can see how it's done. Tanks again!

    I am currently working on making the full body of the tauntaun, using those big sheets of foam insulation. And I am making a Hoth costume for myself! Pix to follow.

    I really can't say enough good things about the workmanship in this thing, it really is incredible. Love it!

    Thanks. Yes we'd love to see your pics, please post them here. I was thinking of using thick carpet padding for some of he body of my taun taun. Was even thinking of putting a hidden zipper in the belly, so Han can use a light saber and give him a slice. Maybe have some innerds fall out. But that just might be too graphic.

    THis is awsome im suprised i missed it ,
    What were the clays you used to sculpt it,
    and its way to late now but if you ever cast another there is , a fur like products that gets used in special EFX , its sorta feels like felt fur , you aply an adhesive to the places you want it and sorta dust it on let it dry and brush of the exese and when done right it looks perfect for short, animal coats

    This is absolutely incredible. I've dabbled in making Halloween masks but this is leaps and bounds above that. Amazing work. It looks awesome mounted on the wall. Have you thought of making a partial saddle attached to it to help frame the body? It would also double as a mounting point to attach to the wall.
