Tauntaun Figure is Released by POGO


A tauntaun is a horse-like animal from the Star Wars series, as seen in Episode V. 


POGO does it again. This here is actually a fig from an official Lego set. I don't really know what to call these figures as they're not minifigs, bigfigs, or "buildables" so I just call them figures.. 


This figure actually came from a 2009 Lego Star Wars set known as "Echo Base" along with 5 other minifigs. Those face designs look pretty old! 


For those who don't remember the tauntaun, here's an image of its appearance in the Star Wars movies. In one part, if I remember correctly, Luke cuts one of them up to use its insides for warmth. Poor tauntaun. 

POGO seems to be a really big Star Wars fan following the influx of Star Wars products. Really hoping they do the same for Marvel soon (biased sorry) as well as other lines, well I guess they have been delivering in the form of Big Bang Theory and The Beatles. Still though, the more the merrier.
