It was on the test server, everything on the test server and that is the ONLY reason why we even knew of it's existence.

So you = fail.

it was datamined off the test server by fans. There are a LOT of things that have been datamined over time that never made it to live. It was never advertised, it was never actually obtainable on the test server. It was a placeholder file that was scrapped.

And seriously, you guys really wanted a red nosed tauntaun?

Count me as one of those disappointed to find out this won't be live. I would have paid 1,800 cartel coins for this too! It's not too late. Put it up for two days on the 24th and 25th.

I imagine it was something like this :


Twas the night before Life Day, and somewhere on Hoth

Sat a cute festive taun-taun, and his master, Darth Moff.

The weather was cold; it was blowing a gale,

Darth Moff, he was freezing - his skin turning pale.

He turned to his chum, and said 'Taun-taun, my friend?'

'If I don't get warm soon, I'll be meeting my end!'.

'That's awful' said taun-taun, standing up with a cry.

'I don't know what I'd do if you happened to die'.

'I wish there was some way I could come to your aid.'

'But as I'm a taun-taun, I've no clue, I'm afraid'

'Don't worry,' said Moff 'I can think for us both,'

'And I know of a way to survive, here on Hoth'

And then he stood up, and unleashed his sabre.

And although he was freezing, his arm didn't waver.

A horrible cry rang out through the blizzard.

As Moff opened up taun-taun from his feet to his gizzard.

'Not bad' thought Darth Moff, as he climbed deep inside.

'Apart from the smell, it's a good place to hide.'

And all through the night, he slept snug and warm.

And woke rested, on Life Day, safe from all harm.


Happy Life Day Everyone!

Thanks everyone.

LOL.. ooooooh noooooo....

I have to say..... you have performed a perfect "Lucy&Teh_Football" maneuver on us with that one and left us all holding our keesters.


You know what this means folks? It means the Galactic Weather Service has predicted clear skys above all the planets for Life Days Eve this year. No need for any Rudolph "augmentation" until bad weather predicted.

Didn't they say chat bubbles caused problems in the engine?

Clearly the Hero Engine was the best choice....
