Last year around this very same time, we found out that the great ThinkGeek had received permission from George Lucas and his LucasFilm to create and sell the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, which originated as an April Fool’s Day joke and exploded in undeniable popularity (Read: Must Own: The Famed ‘Star Wars’ Tauntaun Sleeping Bag Is Now A Reality!).

Now comes the next great product that Star Wars fanatics will have to own: the Jedi bath robe. Yes indeed, now you can be a noble Jedi any time of the day, and it won’t require you wear a Halloween costume in January, which might just lead to nervous friends and family members who one day randomly stop calling.

Watch Now: The Great Tauntaun Sleeping Bag Race

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon*Con 2010 banner
At conventions filled with costumed geeks, they don’t have regular competitions of athleticism. No, they do something far better, such as the first ever Tauntaun Sleeping Bag Race at Dragon*Con 2010, which is planned to be an annual event.

For those that aren’t familiar with the reference, online retailer ThinkGeek produces a sleeping bag that resembles the creature Han Solo slices open and places Luke Skywalker into for warmth on the planet Hoth during the first classic Star Wars sequel Empire Strikes Back [Read Must Own: The Famed ‘Star Wars’ Tauntaun Sleeping Bag Is Now A Reality!]

Organizer geeky costumer Juliette Vincent decided to contact ThinkGeek about sponsoring a race, which they agreed to do if Dragon*Con would officially recognize it in their programing.

The top three winners of the race received prizes and a small legion of respect from onlookers. We of course captured this epic display of athleticism in the shaky videos embedded below.

Check them out and offer your play-by-play opinions in the comment section.
