    Hallmark releasing Transformers Itty Bittys

    Is this the TF we're looking for?

    So we have Optimus, Megatron, & Grimlock. This year we get Soundwave? Sweet! Its awesome how we're getting a new TF ornament each year.

    Bet you next years will be Bumblebee, hopefully 2019 is Starscream though.

    I can see this happening, especially since I'd have figured they'd do Bee last year and Starscream this year, just to get the Fab Four out of the way. So this is a pleasant surprise.

    Skipped Megatron & Optimus Prime but couldn't pass up Grimlock last year. Doubt I'll be able to pass this one up either.

    Awesome! I love these things, have em' all. They're cheaper to find in the stores at release, but if you can manage to find a Hallmark store that has some in stock AFTER Christmas, you'll be able to nab it for 50% or less. True story, makes me wish I held out for Grimlock....there were bunches of him at clearance, but still not bad if you buy in July on release. Starscream next year would be great, but I'm thinking they'll do an Autobot...Ratchet maybe, Ironhide? Makes me wish they'd bring back the 80s arcade cabinet ornaments :D

    Oh hell yes! These things are very nice, and Soundwave looks to be just as good.

    I love the crazy detail on these things! When I got Megatron it took a minute to convince myself that he couldn't transform. Having Soundwave as an ornament will be like getting him for Xmas all over again.

    Agreed, I have Megatron and Grimlock, but completely missed Prime as well. It'd be nice if he was reissued before I go and pay stupid money for him.

    I have all the ones released so far. Need this one now.

    As someone who knows someone who works at Hallmark, i have been lucky. I think this is part of the July event at select stores.

    Nice.

    Hope they make more of these so we could have a full set of Transformers ornaments.

    I love that they do a straight up G1 toy design - rare to see that these days, but I've been enjoying them every year so far!

    I'd buy it, but it would be superior to all the other ornaments on my tree.

    There has yet to be a news item created for this but I'll bump this for those who are interested in seeing news and collecting TransFormers items. I posted a thread last night as this has been news at Seibertron and I didn't see a thread after a cursory look at the news board so I thought it just hadn't been posted yet, but apparently there just hasn't been a news post for some reason despite this being around for over a week.

    He looks good! These have been a pleasure to collect. I figured Soundwave was next. I love that he contains a tape, very well done. Now I really wonder who would be after him though. Bumblebee? Or does the line end here?

    I like the ornaments, and will probably get this. The overall Hallmark ornament craze has surprised me, people pay some crazy prices for Hallmark ornaments that look like non-poseable toys with a string to hang on a tree. I think they are cool, but I'm not sure they always merit the asking prices.

    My wife gets very annoyed I collect Transformers so I enjoy sneaking in a Transformers ornament in the family tree every Christmas. :ev: 

    This is so bought and will go great with the other 3 I have.
