Luke in flight gear, a snowspeeder, and Vader chatting with holo Palpy are full size, while the mini set is Boba Fett and Han in Carbonite. (more…)

TheForce.Net has word of some exclusive and limited edition Hallmark ornaments. (Scroll past the part where they meant to link to our original 2009 Hallmark post.) The first two are a Shock Trooper and Shadow Trooper two pack available only at Comic-Con. Greedo is the limited edition: You’ll have to head into your local store for the Keepsake Ornament Premiere Weekend on July 11th and 12th to nab him. Who shots first is entirely up to you.

Which means it’s time for our first(ish) look at this year’s Hallmark ornaments You can download the Dreambook 2007 in PDF form. No Star Wars mini ornaments this year, but bringing back them back was a common request the Hallmark booth heard at C4, say our sources. (Thanks to Rach and Diane.)

Have you been saving your Republic credits? Because Lucasfilms’ licensees have a lot in store for you, this year:
The Official Pix license awarded to C2 Ventures
The new line of stickers from Mello Smello (alas, not scratch’n'sniff)
The Hallmark Ornaments for 2005
The ROTS Topps Cards (Spoilers abound!)
This just adds to the list that includes the previously announced books, action figures and the rather nifty, yet oh-so-pricey, window blinds.
Must start playing the lottery, again.
