Ready for the holiday season yet--in September? Already bought all of your presents? Now it's time to buy a little something for yourself. Transformers Holiday decorations are coming to you from a number of different venues.

Wheeljack35 carols:

"I just thought I would show some of the items coming out this X-mas. For the first time (that I remember) Transformers will have ornaments and a stocking.

So far these are exclusive to Walmart:



And this to American Greetings...(which we have seen before)




Now Target has some ornaments and a globe, too!
I did see two different types of movie X-mas wrapping paper at Target also.

You can check out an extensive gallery at Tformers...



So it looks like it's time to start making out your wishlists.

Welcome to fall folks.

Front paged, and Happy Autumnal Equinox all...time for cider mills, donuts, and Halloween. Christmas has still got a few months, fortunately.

Hey, I saw these about a week or so ago.
I was too lazy to post it.
I didn't buy em cause I don't think they look very good.
Any G1 designs well that's a different story.

so im curious...they make ornaments for all sorts of movies and shows and comics and whatnot..........obviously these aren't very christmas-ey and would look weird and stick out in a tree....so has anyone who buys these things ever actually put them in a tree? lol

I absolutely agree. The G1 Prime will probably be the extent of what I buy, but you never know what relatives will get you for the holidays, especially if they know your hobbies. This is right up their alley.

To answer the question from Bouncy X, heck yeah we put weird stuff like this on the tree! These will go great with my X-Men ornaments and my tree gets topped each year with a Tazmanina Devil with angel wings and a black leather Biker Jacket. I found it far easier to get into the "Christmas Spirit" once I found holiday decorations that better suited my disposition...especially once I found Taz.
Having Transformers on the tree this year (as well as under) will be perfect and my kids will love it. If only I had my old Omega Supreme for the train around the tree stand...

the new spikey and pointy movie megatron would make one heck of an Xmas star for the tree.

I wish i could afford several tiny Hybrid style Optimus to hang on the branches.

That would be nice, but also expensive!!!

Now if you mean they should all transform to mimick the glass tree bulbs, that would be easier and cooler to me!!!

You could just put christmas tree hooks on the keychain transformers and use them as ornaments.

That would be cool, but I was thinking more like Armada Unicron's minicon Dead End. I have three of them, maybe i should use them to decorate the tree this year....um, NOPE!

Already had a TF themed tree last year...my wife's idea...we made ornaments out of cyber keys, unicron.com's energon cubes, various matrixes from several Primes I have, & a star made out of a couple of CDs with energon stars all over it in the shape of a star. Also had a minicon christmas village, also my wife's idea....had minicons opening presents, pelting each other with snowballs, & singing carols(which was done my giving them little squares of paper to make it look like they were holding sheet music).

Yeah, but I can't seem to find them. I actually did it mostly to p*ss off my mom...kinda a 2-part reason.

A: She dosen't like my TF collection...thinks grown-ups shouldn't be playing with toys.....
B:When I was growing up, my sister had this huge christmas village collection...drove me nuts because she used our computer desk, which meant my bro & I couldn't use our computer, even though it was a cheap old comp(couldn't even play a demo of Doom at a decent speed unless you shrank the screen down to the size of a GBA screen)....& for some reason in recent years she has decided that my daughter needed her own village...leaving us with a crapload of useless ceramic snow-covered buildings.

I just barely got my Carlton Cards/American Greetings G1 Optimus ornament and it totally kicks butt. It's nearly an exact replica of MP Prime, only shrunk down to like 4 or 5 inches in height. Very cool looking, and the best part is the hook for the tree is optional, so if nothing else you could use it for a pretty nifty mini-statue.

Hasbro should make those mini planet-balls. Like Cybertron, Moonbase1, Moonbase2, Junkion planet, Sharkticon planet, Earth, Lith..something(the early breakfast meal of Unicron, forgot the name), and a lot more.

I love the Optimus Prime Christmas stocking. I'll need to get one. If they made a Megatron Christmas stocking, I could get that for my fiance'.
