Tauntaun or Wampa?

The Lego Robot blog I read, despite not having a Lego Robot kit of my own, posted this creation of one or more Kansas teachers:

The blog described it as a Tauntaun. But all that white fur makes one think Wampa.

Here’s a field guide to help:



HOWEVER, look at this picture of a SNOW/FROST-covered Tauntaun:

Add to this the fact that though similar in appearance, the facial appendages of the two animals are horns in the case of the Wampa and Tusks in the case of the Tauntaun. The top picture shows a clear effort to make them tusks. So, yes, this does appear to be a robo-Tauntaun and it’s very kung-fu! Way to go Kansas Teachers!
