Exclusive: Hallmark Ornaments to debut at SDCC 2010
Hallmark will return to Comic-Con this summer with a line up of exclusive DC Comics, Star Wars, and Simpsons products for the event to introduce enthusiastic collectors (that’s you,
fanboys…) to the world of “Keepsake Ornaments”. Just in case your calendar isn’t marked yet, Comic-Con
International falls on July 21-25 this year, at the San Diego Convention Center in California. Here’s the run-down:
75 Years of DC Comics features the publisher’s three most iconic heroes bursting into action from the very comic books in which they made their first cover appearances—Wonder Woman in Sensation Comics No. 1 (January 1942), Superman in Action Comics No. 1 (June 1938) and Batman in Detective Comics No. 27 (May 1939). Limited run of 750.
K-3PO and R-3PO is a two-pack of protocol droids appearing in Star
Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. These are repaints of the C-3PO
Keepsake Ornament offered in 2003 and celebrate the 30th anniversary of
the film’s release. While the red-plated R-3PO can be seen working
within the Rebels’ secret Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth, the
white-armored K-3PO is shown as an advisor in the base’s command center
during the Imperial attack that ultimately drove the rebels back into
space. Limited run of 1,000 sets.
Mr. Burns’ Christmas “Bonus”
depicts the boss you love to hate from television’s “The Simpsons”
offering his idea of a generous holiday gift. Limited run of 500.
‘Keepsake Ornaments’ of each design will be offered for sale every day
of the convention. Visitors to the Hallmark booth at Comic-Con again
will receive a series of collectible buttons featuring Star Wars
Keepsake Ornaments. The button series will feature five designs, with
one design to be given away on each day of the convention. A limited
number of buttons with each design will be produced.
Feel free to
