    Don't forget, this is the US launch weekend for the new Hallmark Ornaments. This launch includes the G1 Box art inspired Optimus Prime created to celebrate 30 years of Transformers.

    I just picked up my order this morning. You can use this store locator to find out if your local shop has any of this ornament available.

    I believe it. My local store's inventory was half gone as well.

    I wish the local Hallmark didn't close down. Now the nearest one is 50 miles away. Price isn't too bad either, I know with some Hallmark ornaments, they can reach up to $30+. Like EMP said, I would be all over this line if they would continue it with more TF ornaments based on G1 artwork in the coming years.

    I grabbed 2 this morning along with some of the Disney ones. My local Hallmark has more if anyone needs one at cost plus shipping

    No, it is a static ornament

    Unfortunately, the box does not note anything like "First in a series", "#1 of #X" etc, so it might only because of the 30th anniversary, or their classic toys theme, as they had a vintage "G1" My Little Pony ornament and a Simon Says ornament
