I went through the old threads and couldn't find a Hallmark discussion thread. If there is one, I missed it, so feel free to lock this and direct me towards it. I happened to stop by a Hallmark shop today and they had already started putting out the new season of ornaments. I was told that they are not allowed to sell them until July 12th though. I think one of the local Hallmarks around here is having a 'midnight madness' sort of opening for the new ornaments. I've actually been to one with my wife. You think Toys 'r Us Midnight Madness was bad - try fighting off a bunch of old ladies with canes and giant handbags. They're pretty rugged when they want to be. Anyway . . . I saw the new TIE Fighter and See-Threepio displayed. Apparently Padme and Yoda won't be out 'til October. But I have to say that C-3PO was beautiful. Whatever gold finish they used on it was incredible - it was nearly sparkling. This is quite possibly the best version of C-3PO in any small, action-figure sized form that I can remember seeing in person. The TIE Fighter was nice. It apparently has a sound feature, but it wasn't hooked up yet, so I couldn't hear it. I used to be really good about keeping up with the ornaments. I passed on all the mini ones, but I had all the regular size ones up until last year. For some reason, I started slacking. I think I was trying to wait until after Christmas for the 50% off sale last year and I just never made it. That's a shame because I really liked the Death Star. Fortunately you can usually find them on ebay for less than retail, so hopefully I'll get caught up soon.
