Has anyone seen this yet?

I've limited myself to only collecting the Nightmare ornament line from Hallmark up until now, but I will have to make an exception for this line! Anyone else planning to pick this up?

In googling for this I found out that Carlton had put out a Dracula ornament a few years ago but it isn't a Lugosi likeness one or at least it doesn't look very much like him. I would totes buy a Frankenstein ornament though. Oh hell, I'd buy the whole series as would most of us here!!

They usually release part of the collection in mid-July (usually when the Nightmare Before Christmas ornament is out), then the full line in early October....any KOC members that want to scan in their dreambook when it comes out?? :D My guess is that Frank will be available in July as well.

I think they put the Dream Book out in June in stores & online so you should be able to get it easily, it's not exclusive to club members. Their ornament premiere is usually mid-July & if you want certain ornaments you better buy them while they're out then or you may not get them at all.

OMG THERE'S ALSO A PLANET OF THE APES CORNELIUS ONE!! The original POTA, not the current remakes or that gawdawful Tim Burton one.

Some years Hallmark hits it, some years they don't. This will be a hit year IMHO. They'll be getting more of my money this year. The past few years there haven't been many I buy. I get any fire dept. related ones, usually 2 of each for family members that are firefighters, the NBC one & maybe there's one, if it's a good year 2, more that catch mine or my husband's eye, but that's it.

This year I already know there's 3 that aren't fire dept. related that I'll be buying!!

While I am still fond of the ornaments, I find the prices a bit perplexing. Hallmark has always overpriced their goods though, haven't they?

Ornaments like the NBC, Godzilla & POTA are licensed figures so they would cost more regardless of the store, but Hallmark branded stuff in general is more expensive.

It's been a while since I've seen a Carlton Cards but their ornaments were just as expensive & not nearly as cool. Is Carlton even around any more? They used to do Pez dispenser ornaments that were cool.
