Hallmark Storyteller ornaments
« on: September 30, 2018, 05:27:18 PM »

Hey all, just wondered if anyone has got these.  I saw them last year, but couldn't pull the trigger at $50 a pop.  This year, the Falcon and TIE fighter are being released and I'm still on the fence. 

They sound really great together and play way more of a scene than I thought the would.

Any thoughts?

I have been buying Hallmark stuff for over 10 years now. I don't collect it really but I pick them up on and off after the Christmas season. I am missing tons of them but I have quite a few nice ones. After Christmas they usually go on sale for 40-60% off depending on how long you wait to get them.

I've picked up most of the hallmark ornaments since they started in 1996 with the exception of the convention exclusives.  The storyteller ornaments are definitely the coolest from a gadget standpoint and the story they play out when they're all connected takes your Christmas tree to the next level. I'd recommend them.

The death star tree topper (lights + sound + remote control) and the force is strong tree skirt (lights only no sound) are pretty spiffy too.

I forgot to mention, if you do buy a storyteller ornament or two, ask at the hallmark store whether or not there is a promo where they throw in a free keepsake power cord. There was a promo when I bought the 3 last year and I got another when I bought the falcon this year (you only need 1 cord but free is free). That cord not only powers the ornaments but it's also how they communicate to each other. It's essential and otherwise would cost~$15. It is not the same power cord that was sold in previous years.

The TIE Fighter storyteller ornament was released yesterday (Falcon was released in July), so now that just leaves the Y-Wing which will come out in 2019. The TIE looks great in person.
