LEGO Stormtrooper Ornament
Hallmark stores have many of their Christmas Ornaments out now. There are more Star Wars Ornaments this year, Han on a tauntaun, a Darth Vader peek buster, Darth Maul, and more. They have a couple LEGO Star Wars ornaments as well a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader. I got the LEGO Stormtrooper. You may remember that LEGO Darth Vader was released last year. I asked a a sales associate about it. She said Darth Vader is same as last year but they are re-releasing it because they couldn’t meet demand last year. Vader is Due out in November.
The ornaments are really impressive. They are large and solid pieces. And are the quality product you would expect from a joint Hallmark, LEGO, and Lucasfilm project. The character is attached to a standard 2×4 brick featuring the LEGO and Star Wars logos.
Here is the 2012 Stormtrooper next to 2011 Darth Vader. The bottom of the brick is dated the year each ornament was released. The Stormtrooper is on a slightly larger brick. I don’t what date will be on the 2012 Darth Vader. Or if it will be made bigger to match the Trooper. The info from Hallmark’s site says
Guard each branch of your most villainous tree. With rifle in hand, this Stormtrooper Keepsake Ornament is ready for battle.
- 1.75″ x 3″ x 2″
Prepare your Christmas craft for the dark side of the holiday with Darth Vader. Deflect enemy ray gun bolts as you duel your way onto the naughty list this Christmas.
- 2.25″ x 3.25″ x 1.25″
If these are right then the 2012 Darth Vader will be taller than the Trooper. Maybe same size brick.
The Hallmark online pic looks like a render and not a product shot. Is that a 5×3 brick? I don’t think that is what the in store pic looked like. I try to visit a store and look at it again.
Here’s a scale shot with Vader ornament and Vader mini-fig. The ornament are bigger than mini-figs. A collection of these will look really cool.
The ornaments are $14.95 each. Darth Vader is due out in November. Stormtrooper is available now.
