It’s Christmas in July as Hallmark returns to San Diego Comic-Con for another busy year. Star Wars ornaments have become a big part of the Comic-Con market and Hallmark has consistently delivered some of the most popular items of the show and this year looks to be no different, as the company revealed in a press release today just what it will be bringing to San Diego Comic-Con.
In addition to being sold at San Diego Comic-Con, this year’s Hallmark exclusives will also be sold at New York Comic Con. All exclusives will be available in “limited quantities”.
Here’s a look at this year’s Hallmark SDCC exclusives, from the press release:
Batmobile – Featuring dialogue and sound directly from the 1960’s Batman Classic TV Series, this Keepsake Ornament depicts the series’ iconic George Barris design for Batman’s ride, styled all in chrome rather than its traditional black paint job.
Xenomorph: From Egg to Alien – Inspired by the 1979 science-fiction/horror classic Alien, this Keepsake Ornament created exclusively for event sales depicts a fully grown humanoid alien crouched next to an egg from which a fellow creature will be spawned.
U-3PO and R5-D4 – This Keepsake Ornament two-pack created especially for event sales features droids that first appeared in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The humanoid protocol droid U-3PO served aboard Princess Leia’s consular ship while the astromech droid R5-D4 was offered for sale by Jawa traders to moisture farmer Owen Lars on Tatooine.
Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite become the latest in Hallmark’s itty bittys line with this exclusive two-pack of the armored bounty hunter and his prisoner as seen in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
