I went out Saturday morning and saw an abundance of landspeeder and Indy ornaments.

Carlton Cards does ornaments, too, and I've collected the I Love Lucy ornaments for several years. This year's ornament was $33, and I only found it at the Carlton store. In the past, I've found it at Meijer or Kohl's and was able to pick it up on sale, but not this year. I had real reservations about paying $33 for a single ornament.
Got the ones I wanted at full price(the OZ ones as well for my wife) pre-X-mas...but my two Hallmark stores are cleaned out of almost every character & light & sound orn. they had this year...I really wanted Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet, though.
Heading out to my Hallmark to see what the clearance leftovers offer.
so i just took down my Christmas Tree and put everything away till next December but I was thinking...looking at all the Star Wars ornaments for Christmas I realized we need some updates:
Electronic Lightsaber Duel Ornaments:
ANH : Old Ben vs Vader (not one yet) just 2 stand alone character ones i believe
ESB : Luke vs Vader....true we have a few but they could use an update similiar to the set this year of TPM Obi Wan / Qui Gon vs Darth Maul
AOTC: Anakin / Obi vs Count Dooku
these are just a few off my head but perhaps making a ask Hallmark Thread might spawn more ideas
I like the idea of duel-themed ornaments. But Hallmark, please include the batteries!!! :yes:
I think there are some obvious characters that have been overlooked who need to be made into an ornament. Like Lando. I would prefer to see a Lando than another Vader. Vader's been produced four or five times.
Being ESB's 30th anniversary, I could see a couple of ESB-themed ornaments, like a snowspeeder, tauntaun or a cloud car.
But we'll know in March!
Hallmark always seems to include the batteries, so that shouldn't be a problem.
Also, here's the link from earlier in the thread that showed off this year's SW ornaments: http://www.superherohype.com/imageGa...n_2009_164.jpg
i don't much like the duel or multi-figure ornaments. i prefer single figures. waited until the weekend to pick up the theed duel on clearance (got all the others on release weekends)
The Duel of the Fates ornament didn't come with batteries, and for $27, it should've.

The rest are here:
Hope it's magic.
That Luke is so goofy looking I'm going to have to pass on him. I'll pick up the Snowspeeder and Lando.
