On my MUST HAVE list is whatever fire truck they have (I get those every year for the firefighters in my life), a couple of the birds that my husband likes, the NBC ornament & the pumpkin diorama.

I'm kinda bummed there's only one NBC ornament this year.

I'd like to see the little tree & little ornaments in person before committing but I'll probably get them. The raven might fall under the birds the hubby likes. The ToTer doesn't grab me, not interested in the Peanuts one & neither does Michonne. The house may be on the must have list too.

I know one thing, if Hallmark keeps this up with the Halloween ornaments I'm definitely going to have to get a bigger tree!!:D

I'll have to go over the catalog again & see what else is interesting.

Beetlejuice is a regular Christmas ornament so you should be able to get it. The Halloween ones are the ones listed with the little tree & under it.

Getting the NBC and the Mysterious Manor for sure. I don't have a magic cord, but I will get one if they put out a few halloween houses! I had hoped they would continue the sugar skull line with different colors and such, but its better for my budget if they don't!

I think the little dioramas are my faves because they're so well done with a lot of detail for such a small ornament. They are all super cute though.

I love it when you see some of them & you know they're R rated characters but there they are in Hallmark ornament form! The one good thing about Hallmark getting the licensing for him is that they are well made, detailed ornaments. It won't be some crappy looking knockoff.

I was stunned by the detail on my Daryl Dixon ornament & surprised that Hallmark made it too.

Thanks for all the links, RCIAG! I can't believe it's almost Hallmark ornament time again. My must have list will have to include the next installment of the Happy Halloween pumpkin dioramas. I'm so glad I started collecting these from the start cause they're so stinkin' cute and I love this year's mummy! I ran right over and checked out the X-Files, but I think I'll have to pass on that. It just didn't strike me, but maybe I'll change my mind when I see it in person. I love the Beetlejuice ornament and the Peanuts Great Pumpkin ornament (I'm a sucker for all things Snoopy.) I also love the mini Halloween ornaments this year. There are several Christmas ornaments I'll need too. Looks like another broke summer for me! :D

I started the pumpkin dioramas last year and wish I had picked up the owl. The raven is beautiful and I bet it's even prettier in person.

Yay! I'm planning on getting most if not all of the Halloween décor again this year.

Our store opens at 8 a.m. on Saturday for Premiere.


Thanks RCIAG for the links! Here's a few more...

There's two Harry Potter ornaments. One features dialogue from the scene - (click on the speaker icon) - the other attaches to the tree's light string... http://www.hallmark.com/ornaments/keepsake-ornaments/harry-potter/

Here's a repeat of the some of the ornaments RCRIAG posted at the start of this thread... http://www.hallmark.com/halloween/halloween-ornaments/

And here's a few more Halloween décor items including a NBC Sally figurine (stone resin), Willa the Witch decorative figurine (fabric and mixed materials), and a lighted witch's hat (battery operated; 5-hour timer)... http://www.hallmark.com/halloween/halloween-gifts/halloween-home-decor/

Should be fun!

Can't wait for tomorrow! Glad the hubby got paid today because he's as big a sucker for this stuff as I am! He likes the birds, planes, & a few other they put out every year.

*gasp* that Sally figurine is gorgeous!!! but the price is painful at $74.95. I never got to a store to make a wishlist, thinking about getting up early and winging it. I've never been to the store closest to me (just moved) so not sure what time they open or what kind of crowd to expect...

The store I went to this morning opened at 7am. Was a small line waiting when I got there. Good thing I went early because they only got 2 or 3 of some of the ornaments and some none. They took peoples info and said they would contact them when the ornament came in. I did get everything I wanted. The mummy in the pumpkin is very nice lot of detail. Let the purchasing frenzy begin!

Grabbed my NBC ornament, and my store had plenty. They also had several of the light up haunted house and the raven. I got to see the pumpkin tree and haunted house hooked up to the magic cord, and it was so cool!! I dont have the room for the tree, but might get the haunted house ornament with a coupon in september if it is still in stock. If anyone here got the tree and house, would love to see how you set it up :) Hope everyone got what they wanted!!

I ordered the NBC and Gringotts bank ornament for store pickup and my closest store has both in stock for pickup today. I'm hoping the pumpkin tree will still be available in Sept so I can use the 20% off code.

OK, got my firetrucks first, then the 3 birds, then the NBC ornament, a "new home" ornament, & the pumpkin mummy diorama.

They had ZERO mini Halloween ornaments (outside of the display ones) so they called around to other stores for me & they'll have them shipped to the store & call me when they're in. They also didn't have any of the raven either but that one didn't grab me so I wasn't worried about it. They had plenty of the Charlie Brown one.

I get the feeling that they got the minimum amount of Halloween minis (& many others) at each store & no extras. But I imagine they'll have more come the October release because that's when the little pumpkin Halloween tree will be released so there's no way they're going to release that without having any ornaments for it. They are SUPER cute in person too.

I also found out that another Hallmark near me CLOSED!!! There was a jewelry store we loved in the same strip mall & they went out too so I'm guessing they jacked up the rent & they said see ya. Which is a shame because both stores were always busy & the jewelry store had been in & around there for nearly 40 years & the Hallmark was also an original renter.

The mummy diorama is cute but the background is a sticker. The mummy, his sarcophagus (which really just looks like a coffin) & his jars are all plastic & part of the pumpkin, but the background hieroglyphics are all on a sticker which is a little disappointing but it's still cute. There was no way they could've gotten all that "carved" into the plastic or painted but it's not detailed in any other ways. The last few years of them have more detail than the mummy. That said it's still really cute.

I didn't get the little girl trick or treater. Thinking about it now I should have gotten it as a present for the kids in my life. I've made them a little Halloween tree & it would be perfect as a starter ornament for them.

The NBC ornament is great! The batteries are separate so I'm not putting them in until it's time to hang it up & I didn't hear it in the store but the box says it's plays "Kidnap a Sandy Claws." But it's a really great looking ornament. Be careful with the little crank that's on the tub, I could see that sucker breaking off pretty easily if you're not careful.

So, overall, I'm happy. I may go back & get one or 2 other non-Halloween ornaments for Christmas presents or just for our tree, but I got everything I wanted & what wasn't there will be in the store in the next week or so.

So if there's something you didn't get, don't despair, they will most likely re-stock for the October release. And if the Halloween tree & house was a release today I didn't see it in my store. Either way, I still can't imagine they won't have that stuff restocked for their October release.

Of course they're all already up on Ebay which chaps my arse to no end but hey, I get it. I hope that whoever bought all of the ones at my store were collectors & not sellers.
