    Hi,

    Not sure if this qualifies as news or not, but I found two new (to me, anyway) Transformers items while grocery shopping at Giant Eagle (a supermarket chain here in PA, and elsewhere) this afternoon.

    I first learned about these in September, but didn't see them in person until today.

    Hallmark Fluffballs (which, according to the tag, are ornaments/decorations) featuring Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

    Here's Bumblebee by himself (UPC 763795581757):

    And Optimus Prime (UPC 763795581764):

    $5.99 each.

    These were located in the greeting card area in their own Fluffballs display (I didn't see any other Transformers characters, but there were some other properties - I'm pretty sure I saw some Marvel stuff in there).

    Prime's face plate is too small. Makes him look like he has a gag on.

    It’s hard to gauge size of these ornaments. Are they baseball size?

    Do they have a loop at the top to string something through? It's hard to tell here but judging from images of other Hallmark fluffballs it seems like that's the case. They could work as ornaments.

    Yep, there's a little loop at the top of each.

    Speaking of Hallmark...

    Here's a screen grab from a YouTube user IdleHandsBlog's video of Hallmark's booth at NYCC 2019.

    Here's a link to the video

    The Jazz bit is at 3:38 but it's just the cutout like they did with Bumblebee last year. Didn't see any other Transformers stuff in the video but just skimmed.
