• Hallmark Unveils Plans, Reveals Exclusive Keepsake Ornaments for Comic-Con 2012

      Hallmark announces its return to Comic-Con International in San Diego — the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world. Celebrating its fifth year at Comic-Con, Hallmark will provide more than 100,000 attendees access to Comic-Con-exclusive Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments, visits with a Keepsake Ornament artist and sneak peeks of products to be released in 2013.



      During the convention, held July 11-15, 2012, Hallmark will sell limited quantities of the following Keepsake Ornaments:


      • 4-LOM and Zuckuss: This two-pack features the criminal droid 4-LOM and Gand tracking expert Zuckuss from "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™." Created exclusively for event sales, 4-LOM and Zuckuss are the last bounty hunters depicted in the film to become Keepsake Ornaments. Limited run of 1,000 sets ($35 per set).
      • A Human Hero: This original sculpture is inspired by the 1986 comic book masterpiece "The Dark Knight Returns." This gritty adventure helped to establish the more realistic and complex portrayal of the Dark Knight in modern media. Limited run of 875 Keepsake Ornaments ($25 each).
      • Cylon Centurion: In the classic 1978 TV series "Battlestar Galactica™," Cylon Centurions relentlessly pursue the "ragtag" survivors of the twelve colonies of humanity across the reaches of space with a single goal: destroy all humanoids. This gold-painted variant of last year's popular ornament is Hallmark's first Comic-Con exclusive to feature sound. Limited run of 750 Keepsake Ornaments ($25 each).


      "We're excited to return to Comic-Con and to reward our passionate fans with exclusive Keepsake Ornaments and first-looks at new products," said Beth Dorr, associate merchandise manager for Keepsake Ornaments. "This year, we're bringing back fan-favorite activities, such as daily pin giveaways, and offering new activities, including autograph sessions with a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament artist."

      Visitors to Hallmark's booth in the Lucasfilm Pavilion will be able to meet and receive free autographs from Robert Chad, one of the Hallmark artists behind the 4-LOM and Zuckuss Keepsake Ornaments.

      Also making a return appearance are fan favorites hoops&yoyo. Creator Bob Holt will be in the booth with the hoops&yoyo characters, Thursday, July 12 (4-6 p.m.); Friday, July 13 (1-3 p.m.); and Saturday, July 14 (1-3 p.m.).

      Attendees also can view many of the new 2012 Keepsake Ornaments, including Edward and Bella's Wedding and The Amazing Spider-Man™, as well as get a sneak peek of what's to come in 2013. A series of collectible buttons featuring five Keepsake Ornaments also will be available for fan pick-up. The series features five designs, with a limited quantity of one design given away each day of Comic-Con.

      Fans not in attendance still can be a part of Hallmark's Comic-Con action. Hallmark will give away one set of Comic-Con-exclusive Keepsake Ornaments on Twitter before the convention begins. Additional product giveaways will be hosted before and during the convention. Follow @HallmarkPR, #ComicCon and #SDCC for more information.
