Alright, so we need to find some good images of tauntauns. I haven't been able to find one of the tauntaun sliced, just them standing around looking stupid.

I have the Star Wars VCDs...so I guess I could capture screenshots. Unfortunately, those are at my home 7 hours away. :|

Anyone have any good pics?

Just a practical observation:

TaunTauns aren't that big - not even one person could fit inside a TaunTaun.

Therefore, shouldn't this forum be called "The Sliced Super TaunTaun"?

i cast this tauntaun card...knowing that I might start a rage posting customized cards in discussions...

Anyways, The Sliced Super TaunTaun sounds kinda silly to me :rolleyes:

We're all 'Taunies' now. :D

We could all fit in a swamp (and they get stuck there, only some break free), so we can all fit in a Tauntaun's belly. :cool:

thats a good one.
maybe you could put a neon sign saying 'happy hour 3-4' or 'ladie's night' or 'tonight - bingo' and dress the droid in a tux.

Haha, and "The Sliced TaunTaun" sounds perfectly normal? :p

Luke lay next to a (sliced) TaunTaun to keep warm - or at least that's the impression I got from the film...

Indeed, Han cut open the taun taun and placed its hot guts on Luke´s body.

And Phreak whatever drug you are taking, cut the dose.
Your link with the real world is troubled :p

Gweh? What the hell, guys. Han shoves Luke INSIDE the tauntaun. :indif:

They even made a toy:
http://www.toysrgus.com/images-toys/figuretoys/tauntaunopenbelly-front.jpg



And this is the quote from the script:

"Han ignites Luke's saber and cuts the beast from head to
toe. He quickly tosses it's steaming innards into the snow,
then lifts Luke's inert form and stuffs him inside the
carcass."

The name for the offtopic discussion could never have been chosen better besides "the sliced taun taun".

People in battle front can ride various vehicles and even tauntauns :D
