2014′s LEGO Star Wars Hallmark Ornament is Boba Fett!

Yes, the Hallmark Keepsake LEGO Star Wars ornament this year is the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, Boba Fett. Three things I love all rolled into one, Boba Fett, LEGO and geeky Christmas ornaments. I guess I know what I’m getting for my anniversary this summer! Honestly, I was surprised that he wasn’t picked last year, but I suppose they wanted to get a “good guy” in there after two years worth of villainy and helmets. Which reminds me, I still need to get the Stormtrooper ornament I missed…

Thanks to banthafodder for the heads up in the forums.

Hallmark Reveals This Year’s LEGO Star Wars Ornament: Yoda

Yoda Keepsake Ornament

Anyone else sick of what is turning out to be the Year of the Yoda? Good, ’cause neither am I! Hallmark has announced their newest entry into their line of LEGO Star Wars Christmas Tree ornaments and it really should come to no surprise to anybody that it is famed Jedi Master Yoda. He is offered in a rather static pose and looks more like a minifigure than a statue. Seems lazy to me, and I’m not talking about what his eyes are doing there. Still, this is one line we can all claim to be successful completionists on up until they wise up and start offering convention exclusive ornaments. Then we’re screwed. Anyways, he’ll go on sale later this year at the low, low price of $14.95. Hallmark’s previous LEGO Star Wars ornaments were Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.

Thanks to banthafodder for the heads up.

Amazon Has Your Sithmas Tree Ornament

The Hallmark exclusive LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader ornament is available now in stores for your purchasing pleasure. For those without the glory of a Hallmark store nearby, you’re covered too. Amazon once again sucks the exclusivity out of this exclusive and since you can’t order them online directly from Hallmark, the free shipping makes up for the few extra bucks anyway. To the best of my knowledge this is the first non-LEGO produced LEGO themed ornament and I hope it continues past next years stormtrooper. I want 2013 to bring me a Boba Fett.

Comic Con Recap: Hallmark and LEGO Star Wars, Stormtrooper Ornament Revealed

Revealed last week, Hallmark is entering the LEGO Star Wars market with a new ornament of a LEGO Darth Vader minifigure. The ornament goes on sale in October for $14.95. They had a few on display at the San Diego Comic Con which I was happy to take pictures of. The Dark Lord is a pretty good size for an ornament, much larger than an actual minifigure and around the same average size for their other figure ornaments. My only gripe is that the cape seems all too narrow. In some views, especially head on, it seems like he doesn’t even have one on. You just see a hint of it. I would have like to have seen a much larger sweeping cape, one that is immediately noticeable without having to purposefully look for it. Still, not bad for the first product out of the gate.

Hallmark will also be selling a series of party accessories based around LEGO Star Wars such as bags, cups, plates, etc.

But the biggest news is that they had a little sign showing a sneak peek what next year’s LEGO Star Wars ornament was going to be for 2012: Stormtrooper. LEGO hasn’t used the loudhailer and 1×1 round stud as a blaster for awhile now, so I’m not sure why they are using it for the ornament. Perhaps it was a licensing issue but I really wish they had sculpted in a blaster instead. It does give the figure a bit of nostalgia, though, for old timers like me.

LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Holiday Ornament

Hallmark will be releasing the above-pictured holiday ornament later this year. The price is $14.95, will only be sold in stores, and comes out in October. I believe this is the first LEGO Star Wars-themed ornament that Hallmark is producing. Although the style looks much like the maquettes that Gentle Giant released a few years ago, the proportions look completely off. Still, this isn’t going to stop me and no doubt other fans from getting one.

Many thanks to forum member banthafodder for the tip.
