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"?

Use your imagination, besides, didnt Luke lie inside a tauntaun at Hoth?
Anyways, The Sliced Super TaunTaun sounds kinda silly to me

We're all 'Taunies' now.

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.

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?

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

I think Han put Luke in the TaunTaun from a little below his shoulders.....

Has anyone stopped for a moment to consider the sheer ridiculousness of the name "The Sliced TaunTaun"?

You just wait Groovy - they are going to have a documentry on this website and the cruelty to Taun Tauns. I'm sure they got footage of what I did to those Taun Tauns in JA.....

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.

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

They even made a toy:




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."
