There were a lot of cool beasts in the vintage line, but the Tauntaun was the only one I had as a kid. As mentioned before he came into my collection used and without his saddle or reigns. There is a trap door on the Tauntaun's back that allows a figures legs to go inside. The saddle had molded legs attached to it which gave the illusion that these figure with limited articulation could ride the animal. You can also see from this photograph that my Tauntaun's body is fairly yellowed.

The old Tauntaun has lots of great details and tons of play value. Well done Kenner!
