LEGO Ornament (part 2)

Earlier I posted about Hallmark’s LEGO Star Wars Ornaments.  I have a brief update. I went to a another Hallmark store today.  They had the Stormtrooper ornament on display and the place where Darth Vader was suppose to be was empty. But the ornament was on the shelf!

So I looked at it. Box says dated 2011. There is a photo on the box and the shelf. It’s not the online computer generated image. The picture is of the same ornament from last year. He’s on a smaller brick than the trooper.

I asked the sale associate if it was new or last year backstock. She said he was new. Didn’t understand at first that it was out early. She checked after I left so it may not be out anymore. I was really hoping that it was last year’s backstock and that the November one would have the same size brick as the trooper. But It looks like it the same as before.

The ornaments are $14.95 each.  Stormtrooper is available now. Darth Vader is due out in November. Or maybe now if you look.

No Hallmark Store near you?

Hallmark stores are not the only place to purchase these ornaments. Previous years Kohl’s, Books a Million, and Walgreens have carried Hallmark ornaments. Walgreen only carried a few and I’m not even sure I saw them there past couple years. Books a Million did not have them out yet. Kohl’s puts their Christmas out pretty earlier but I haven’t been there this season.

Behind the scenes.

A behind the scenes look. When I went to shoot the ornaments, my Darth Vader mini-fig was not handy so I grabbed another sith. I mention that because the same day I shot this Bricks and pics posted a pic of the same version of Darth Maul from the Jedi Duel set.

Update: During the SDCC coverage there was a hint at 2013 LEGO Ornament. In the background of a photo, there was a card showing a LEGO Yoda ornament so hopefully we’ll see him next year.

Update 2: Books a Million now has their Hallmark ornaments out. They do carry the LEGO Stormtrooper.
