Can you change the thread title to "The 2006 Star Wars Christmas Thread" ?

Better now? I do agree it will help things stay on topic.

I like the Yoda tree topper..at least its something different this year than the same old ornaments. :)

I hope I'm not alone in hoping that there's no Xmas commemorative action figure this year - those things stink. :D

I hope they continue the line. While last years figure wasn't up to par, the base that it came on and card design were cool.

I'd rather see them keep the line going and those that don't like them don't buy them. From what I can gather SW shopzone was able to sellout of all of the horrible Red Vader's from last year, so I'd imagine there an audience to these things.

I did fail to pick up several of last years Hallmark ornaments. I hope I don't do the same this year.

This years Hallmark ornaments look pretty good. I'm in the habit of going after Christmas and scooping them up on clearence.

I like the Adler Vader building a Death Star in the Snow snowglobe. The rest are sub-par with their paint jobs so I'll probably pass on those unless I find a decent one.

That's the way to go. You can get 'em for half off but you also run the odds of not finding them at all if you wait.

i'd pick up the at-at this year. it'll sell out before they go on clearance. the other 3 seem like they should still be around.

This years SW Hallmarks are outstanding, and make the Kurt Adler crap Target is selling blow major chunks. I'm getting extras on the Walker & Obi Vs. Anakin. The detailing, sound chips & lighting effects rock. I also advise not waiting too long. I did that in 2002 & missed out on Obi & Jango, which I tracked down on ebay. I also like the Star Trek transporter. Most of these now "free stand," and you don't even need to hang 'em...and batteries ARE included.

I like the Darth Vader stocking ive seen at Target. Those Hallmark Star Wars ornaments are cool too, especially the AT-AT one. They have a couple of other ornaments that arent bad either, like the Marvel one.
