Star Wars Holiday Gifts From ThinkGeek

e071 wampa rug

Oh the weather outside is frightful and since we have a Star Wars Wampa rug, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Yes, two of my favorite things are Christmas and Star Wars. For anyone who has a Star Wars fan on their holiday shopping list, might I suggest you skip the stores and shop online at

The first item that will get your fanboy excited is the Star Wars Wampa rug. This thing is bad ass. Bear skin rugs are a thing of the past; the Wampa rug is in.

Just think how cool you will be with this rug. For one, it is a conversation starter. Whether you are in Hoth or at home you can rest assured you can relax in the warmth of a Wampa. The rug has high-quality synthetic fur and a plush pillow head. The claws are made of vinyl and it comes with a non-slip backing. For all you collectors, the rug is an officially licensed Lucasfilm collectible. The Wampa rug is  62″ long x 30″ wide. For $99.99 you can rock the same rug that Lando had in his crib in Cloud City. Then all you need to do is try to be as cool as Lando….key word “try”.

There is a zippered pocket for storage inside C-3POs torso to keep your valuables safe and teach them to speak in over six million forms of communication.
