    I stopped into my local American Greetings store today and they had the new catalog for this year's Heirloom Ornaments. According to page #20 of the catalog, it appears that fans can look forward to a Bumbleebee head with lights and movie phrases from "Revenge of the Fallen", not DOTM.The 2011 Bumblebee Heirloom ornament will retail for $25.

    FYI - I was told that the store would likely be setting up their display the week of August 8th. However, if they get them in early, I did not seem like there was any corporate mandate to prevent them from setting this up early.

    Only 1 TF ornament this year?

    I always wondered if they would make a Transformers ornament that y'know, transforms. Maybe a mini G1 Optimus Prime with die-cast. Kinda like WST scale, but far more detail.

    I have the Prime vs Megatron movie version from last year and it looks great. I'll probably pick up the decapitated Bumblebee when it goes on clearance after Christmas like last year.

    Yeah, there was no way I was going to crop out Godzilla when I posted this news. That piece looks great.

    The stores can be hard to find sometimes but at least I found one the year they had Optimus head ornaments..and the Megs/Prime fighting one too. Seems like Kohls has these as well. Might get one Bee but not that big of fan of him without Prime.

    I miss the G1 ornaments they were doing. That original Bumblebee sculpt was fantastic.

    A severed Bumblebee's head? I like that. Nowhere nearly as cool as the ROTF Prime vs. Megatron, but still neat.
