    I don't think this has been posted yet. It looks like Carlton Cards/ American Greetings will have not one, but two ornaments for this year.

    I saw them yesterday and they each retail for $25.00. The Optimus Prime has different phases from the movie in Cullen's voice. The G1 Bumblebee features the transforming sound when you press the Autobot logo. Since AG / CC stores typically do a B1,G1 50% off deal, I decided to wait for a sale rather than laying out $50 for both now.

    I did that last year as well. I even made a few ornaments out of some extra 2" Titanium figures.

    That's one of the best "cartoon-inspired-but-not-an-exact-copy" sculptures of Bumblebee I've seen! :)

    Definitely getting Bumblebee to go with my Megatron and G1 Prime from a few years ago... will probably pass on the movie Prime.

    I've seen the previous years' ornaments (Masterpiece Prime and Revoltech Megs lookalikes) in Kohl's stores everywhere, so definitely check there if you don't have a local Carlton Cards. The Bumblebee is really nice. I may pick him up when they go on clearance. $25 each is way too much for these.

    God rest ye merry Autobots
    Let nothing you dismay
    But Prime is in a pissy mood
    And now he wants your face
    He saved us from the Fallen's power
    And now he needs his space
    O tidings of battle lust and rage
    Lust and rage
    O tidings of battle lust and rage

    He keeps the faces on his wall
    Displayed on wooden plaques
    The Fallen, Grindor, Megatron
    All victim to his attacks
    Twas a fateful day he did upgrade
    To swords from battle axe
    O and he also killed Bonecrusher too
    Bonecrusher too
    O and he also killed Bonecrusher too

    But he could not stop there and so
    When at the battle's end
    His continual dis-figurement
    Included foe and friend
    He's performed more face lifts now than
    Joan River's own surgeon
    O tidings of obsession and need
    Gotta cut 'em all
    O tidings of obsession and need

    So now, my friend, be careful
    For Prime is on the prowl
    Beware his endless searching
    Beware his fearful scowl
    Now run before he finds you
    And mounts your visage on his cowl
    O tidings of warning and fear
    Warning and fear
    For this, the coming new year.

    Putting up the Christmas tree is a pain in the ass. Two more ornaments will make it even more so. Pass. Even though im sure someone in my family will think it's cute and funny to get these as a gift.

    The detail on that Prime head is pretty darn good.
