One page 32 of the PDF of the Dream Book there's also a Zombie Merle ornament that's listed as a limited quantity ornament but the picture quality isn't that great but here's the link to the PDF version of the book.

And last but not least, my faves, the NBC ornaments!!
ONE of the Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments but not available until Oct. 6, 2018.
https://www.hallmark.com/ornaments/...-armed-bandit-metal-ornament-2999QXD6356.html





Here's the other one but it's really more than one, it's a set of NINE Jack heads!!!
https://www.hallmark.com/ornaments/...porcelain-ornaments-set-of-9-5999QXD6353.html




Most are available July 14, 2018, click on the links for the dates & the actual paper books are in stores now too so start your list now!!

Not sure if I need all of them this year. I'd like the Walker Merle one maybe, I'll definitely get the little Werewolf diorama one since I have all the others & the NBC ones, especially the Jack heads, those are pretty awesome. The minis are cute too.

This year I think I'll actually send in my Wish List. We'll also get a couple of the fire trucks & my husband loves the metal birds so we'll get those. I gotta go back & see what airplanes they have this year, he loves their airplanes too.

I don’t collect ornaments but the NBC one is pretty cool! What do you mean your done with TWD?
Done watching it. After this season's finale I'm over it. Not even if Reedus shows up nekkid again.

OK who am I kidding, if Reedus shows up nekkid again maybe:D, but other than that, I'm over watching WD. I never really got into FtWD so that frees up my Sunday nites again!

I think they made a mistake by not deviating from the comic & giving us a death we wanted (& possibly needed after all the horrible deaths he gave us). I also think Negan works in the comics better than on screen & those deaths he caused were pretty visceral when seen in glossy color on our TVs as opposed to the B&W world of the comics. I felt zero catharsis & thought if they could deviate from the comics on other numerous occasions they should've done it then too.

But they didn't & they've lost me. Something I never thought would happen. They almost lost me in Season 2 on that endless Hunt for Sophia, but they got me back with that finale but not with this one. I'm gone.

And that's from someone who made it through all 6 seasons of Lost & actually liked the ending of that show, but I'm over WD.

Now back to your regularly scheduled Hallmark Ornaments thread!!

That WD ornament isn't nearly the same quality as last year's Rick or Michonne or even the first Daryl ornament. That first one really looked like Reedus & this one just doesn't. Unless it's some weird prototype or maybe they didn't have his permission to use his likeness again, either way I don't think it's a good likeness.

I'm hoping to get by our Hallmark tomorrow or over the weekend for the paper book & maybe to put in my Wishlist.

While not all EXACT likenesses (I think the Rick one looks more like Luke Perry but whatevs), they're close enough that you would look at them & know who they are (especially if you were a fan):

Michonne from 2017



Rick from 2017



Daryl from 2016 with his iconic crossbow



But this guy? He's just some angry dude on a motorcycle:



However THIS guy is definitely Zombie Merle & will look great on a Halloween tree:

I didn’t care for the ending either of this past season, and thought Negan deserved much more than what he got. I know some people say killing him would be too easy and he needs to pay a much higher price for what he did, and in theory, watching everyone live their lives around him while he sits in a cell rotting will be a different kind of torture. But you know at some point someone is going to become a traitor to the group and set him free. I could never stop watching the show though. I have too much time invested in it to call it quits. I may not always like where the storyline goes, but overall I still think it’s one of the best shows out there in that genre.

I watch Fear as well. I’m not sure how far you got in it before deciding it wasn’t for you, but I can tell you that it drastically changes in season 2 (for the better) and I know a couple of people who have changed their mind about it after sticking it out past the first season (which is actually only 6 episodes).

As for the ornaments, I totally see what you’re talking about with Daryl! Honestly the Rick ornament doesn’t even look like Rick either, but Michonne is pretty spot on, as well as the one for Merle!

I typically only buy the NBC ornament from Hallmark but.....really not feeling it this year :( The Jack heads are much better, but too expensive for me. I would buy both if deeply discounted.

On the other hand, I love the Mausoleum so much, i went on ebay and bought the haunted house ornament and a magic cord! Might start collecting these instead depending on how NBC turns out next year.

I am also tired of the same sugar skull designs......wish they would make other designs in the series

That's a good point, those are the same sugar skull designs, the selling point for these is they're minis (if that's you're thing), but they are the same designs as the larger versions from the last couple of years.

The musical mausoleum is nice. I really like the NMBC heads - I assume they are based on the multiple sculpted heads used in the movie. But $60.00 ? Maybe if any are left over after the holiday...

RCAIG - I'm right there with you about WD. I was watching on and off, but Glen's death made me drop it like a hot potato. I decided if I was going to watch something on a Sunday night, I'd prefer something relaxing and enjoyable...

I'm not too enamored of most of the Halloween choices this year. I'll get the little pumpkin diorama & the NBC stuff, but the rest I think I can take or leave.

I'm not a big Peanuts fan so I don't need the Snoopy ones, the sugar skulls are cute but minis of the larger ones so I don't feel like I need them either, & I'm not that fond of the others. They're cute but I've gotta get a couple other Christmas ones so I'd rather spend my money on the firetrucks & birds for Christmas gifts instead of more Halloween ones that I really don't need.

Thanks RCIAG! Something to look forward to. I collect the pumpkin dioramas, so I'll definitely be getting the werewolf one. I love Snoopy, but I was hoping the candles on the piano would light up too. Still cute though, so I'll probably get it. I like the Ghostly Mausoleum and watched the video, but I kept waiting for the doors to open and show something! :) I got their pumpkin ornament tree last year and it's really nice. You have to buy the magic cord separately, but I think it was worth it and makes a great mini ornament display piece. Can't wait to see these in person.

Seeing them in person can change your mind one way or the other. Sometimes I see them in person & think "ugh, nope not getting that one" & then other times I think I don't want one then see it in person & have to buy it.

Awesome pictures RCAIG!

I think my favorites this year are the miniature, Bitty Bat, Ghostly Mausoleum, Spooky Snoopy - (love the piano and candelabra) - Bewitching Bat - (which follows Happy "Owl"oween, 2016, and Ravishing Raven, 2017) - and Happy Halloween! - (that features a werewolf this year). Sharon Viskar is the artist who creates the sugar skulls. I like the minis more than the larger sugar skulls from previous years. Hopefully she'll move on to other themes next year. She also created the Ghostly Mausoleum this year, so there's hope. ;)

Saturday's the big day. My store closed so Premiere will be 90 miles round trip for me, but it's always so fun to see the ornaments. For those in similar circumstances, I believe all the ornaments will be available online, but check to make sure... https://www.hallmark.com/search?q=halloween+ornaments&oq=halloween+ornaments And here's the NBC ornaments and figurines... https://www.hallmark.com/search?q=nightmare+before+christmas&oq=nightmare+before+christmas The other licensed ornaments can be found by searching for them individually.

Heaven help me but I may actually get up early this year to hit this Premiere. I should go online & order stuff or wishlist it or whatever you do so I can have what I really want. We've just been so busy moving the in-laws that I almost forgot about it!!

Thanks for the reminder, Grandma Lise! This almost sneaked past me. I may have to go to the store tonight and do a wish list if it's not too late. I really have to have the new pumpkin diorama for my collection. Guess I'll check out the website again and start an "I want, I need" list. :D

I have tried 50 times to log into the Hallmark site & I just can't get it to work.

This makes me crazy & not just for this site:
I put in my email & password & it says "wrong password" so I try a couple of the usual passwords I use & they're a no-go too. So then I request a new password to that email & it says it can't send it to my email. So I think "maybe I don't have an account" so I try to sign up for a new account then it states "there's already an account with that email." But it won't send a new password to the email so....I guess I'll just have to call them.

Yes, Hallmark rolled out a lot of changes this year. As a result, there's been lots of problems with the website. My next step would be to call 1-800-HALLMARK. My issues were different but I share your frustration. Don't know the hours, but I have called and talked with someone during the day on the weekend. Good luck. Am interested in hearing what happens.

Premiere is here. Hope everyone has fun!

BillyBones, not sure about Canada, but those in the US can order directly from Hallmark. I'm just across the border from you. :)

Here's the link to where we can shop for ornaments... https://www.hallmark.com/ornaments/keepsake-ornaments/

And here's a link to the Dreambook... https://www.hallmark.com/on/demandw...a55738aea/dreambook/2018-InstoreDreambook.pdf

Halloween ornaments are in the back on pages 90 and 91, others are found intermixed with the licensed ornaments throughout the last half of the dreambook.

Hooked On Ornaments ships to Canada, right?
