I'm not an expert when it comes to keepsake ornaments but I believe Hallmark leads the way when it comes to over all craftsmanship. Yeah I can see they tried to capture the appearance of the G1 figure but I feel they may have failed in this representation of our passion.
I feel when it came to G1 representation to hang from your tree or what have you this was far more impressive...http://www.yousephtanha.com/blog/wp-con ... ments1.jpg
I think Carlton did a great job over all it's just too bad they only did 3 including Megatron and Bumblebee. They did some movie ornaments for you fans but the G1 pieces were by far the best IMO. Yes they don't transform but I for one can appreciate what Carlton did. I'm very glad I picked them up but I don't know if I would hang them from my X-mas tree but who knows.
Typically they do have very fine work, or I should say they add their name to work done by artists of high caliber but the level of detail depicted on this one combined with the Hallmark brand would be about right for the price tag. Any finer work and they'd jack the price another 5 or 10 bucks. Their ornaments are getting spendier each year.
I know I'm happy with the Hallmark X-Wing Fighter I have that plugs into the light strand for light up "lasers" and I think this ornament will look quite cool with my other Transformer ornaments, my X-wing, my X-Men ornaments and my Taz "Angel" (Taz in a leather biker jacket with angel wings). All of it together making one kick-ass Pop Culture Christmas tree.
