    For vehicles this year, a "Magic" (battery-operated) ornament of an Imperial AT-AT and Rebel Snowspeeder from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back plays sounds of the battle of Hoth when you press the button. $28 US, $39.95 CDN.

    Tenth in the series, Hallmark has again sculpted Luke and Yoda, also from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. $15 US or $19.99 CDN.

    [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=http://www.rebelscum.com/ornaments2006/hallmark2006rots.jpg]Anakin VS Obi-Wan ROTS[/link]

    Lastly, from Revenge of the Sith comes the classic duel of Anakin and Obi Wan. Another "Magic" ornament that lights up the sabers and plays sounds and dialogue from the movie. $28 US or $39.99 CDN.

    It looks like a nice assortment that is sure to please many fans and ornament collectors alike!



    I have to say I'm psyched! I haven't purchased ANY Hallmark ornaments in eons and I think even I want all of these...particularly the Clone Wars trio and the Anakin Vs. Obi-Wan!

    I'll be going for the AT-AT, Luke w/ Yoda, and maybe the Anakin vs. Obi-Wan. I have all the SW ships that Hallmark has released except for last year's Jedi Starfighter. I will probably try to get it this summer off eBay when the market for the ornaments tends to be quieter.

    The Clone Wars trio doesn't interest me that much, the cartoon's decent enough to watch, but I've only bought one of the figures and that was the Red Clonetrooper because he looks cool!

    I've never bought any of these before. They look great, but when I see that Luke & Yoda I swear I can faintly hear "Don't tell my heart... My achey-breaky heart." Are they line dancing at a country bar?

    I'll be getting all of them no doubt. I've been buying all of them since '03 so I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. :p Plus I hope to go back and get previous years via Ebay this summer as well. Hopefully I can score some relatively cheap.

    I'm a sucker for the "Magic" ornaments. That Anakin/Obi duel sounds pretty awesome.

    "It's over Anakin! I have the high branch on the tree!"

    Yeah. Lightsaber violence! A perfect thing to have at Christmas time.

    I wonder if the ornament will use the actual actor voices or just have some random actors doing the lines?

    If the Anakin vs Obi-Wan is anything like the Death Star II ornament they did a couple of years ago, they'll take lines right from the movie.

    Yes, they do, but most of them are making a cheesy sounding holiday greeting.

    I cant say that I am that happy with this years choices and I am getting annoyed because this is the third year that I am bummed. I am also the fact that we are only getting four. Here is my take.

    Clone Wars Three Pack - I liked the series a bunch but again with so many Star Wars characters that they havent done I felt that dipping into the animated series is a bit premature. Add on the fact that they are minis (I would rather have one good ornament than two or three crappy ones)makes this my least favorite ornament choice in a long time.

    Magic AT-AT - This is an awesome ornament. Except for a mini ornament from 1996 we have never had the AT-AT and it looks like they did a good job on this one. I like the snow speeder and the snow at the base of the legs. Nice touch.

    Luke and Yoda - I have mixed feelings about this one. The Luke Yoda scenes in ESB are some of my favorites from the films but I can't stand the fact that they are double dipping on the series ornaments. We already have a series Luke (in Bespin gear no less) and we also have two figures of Yoda (although not series ornaments). I do like the look and pose of this one but I hate the fact that they are repeating when we have so many characters that havent been done yet.

    ObiWan vs Anakin - This one looks a bit cheesy to me. The "lava" in the background doesnt cut it and the pose that they are in is a bit dull. That lightsaber fight was off the hook and I would have liked to see Vader swinging wildly and Obi Wan parrying or blocking. I feel that this would have worked much better if they would have released two ornaments of each character that you could put together (kind of like they did with the Jedi Luke/Darth Vader or the Obi Wan and Jango a few years ago).

    If I could have any character as an ornament it would be a Jawa with light up eyes and a sfx that says Ooo Tee Dee.

    I will be getting the duel one as well as the CW trio the other I am unsure of I'd like them to release a Mustafar Anakin one just because it would look sweet.

    Luke and Yoda will be nice.

    I want to see Palpatine. Nothing better to bring you into the Christmas spirit than an insane Sith Lord fixated on Revenge.

    Well, we already have his voice ordering the destruction of the Rebels on the Death Star II ornament. But, him on his throne from ROTJ would be pretty cool.

    I agree. Either on the throne or a magic one that has light up lightning shooting out of his hands.
