Star Wars STUFF, the saga continues

Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments 2005
Just in time for Valentine's Day, has posted the images of their new 2005 Star Wars Keepsake ornaments. The 2005 Hallmark Keepsake ornaments are a nice mix between the Classic Trilogy and the upcoming Revenge of the Sith film. They include 3 spaceships, two classic characters and a large sized Clone Trooper. EDITOR'S NOTE: OH ORNIE-EXPERT ANDREW....WHAT OF THE OTHER 2005 COLLECTIONS FROM HALLMARK? HARRY? LOTR?

Princess Leia - $14.95 (9th in series)Dressed in her finest from Return of the Jedi, Leia will be sure to heat up the cold winter nights around the Christmas tree. Previous figures in this series include 2004's Chewie with Threepio and 2003's C-3PO

Darth Vader - $18.95Recreating the classic scene from The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader makes his third appearance as an ornament. The first time being a talking ornament in 1997, followed by a 2002 version which was 6th in the Star Wars series.

Clone Trooper Lieutenant Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith - $14.95Storming their way from the battlefields on the Clone Wars are the Clone Trooper Lieutenant. These blue highlighted troopers feature the new designs for the Clone Troopers, and help bridge their eventual metamorphosis into the pawns of the Empire. This is the first large size Clone Trooper, as 2003 saw a pair of miniature Troopers.

TIE Advanced x1 and Millennium Falcon - $14.95This pair of mini ships marks the return of each to the Hallmark line. Recreating the final moments from A New Hope, the Millennium Falcon and Darth Vader's TIE x1 can be placed next to their full sized counterparts from 1996 and 1999 respectively.

Anakin Skywalker's Jedi Starfighter - $28.00What is sure to be the coolest of the 2005 ornaments is Anakin's Jedi Starfighter from Revenge of the Sith. This ship, which bridges the Episode II design with styles and shapes reminiscent of the Classic Trilogy, is the only full scale spacship available this year.
