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.
