We had reported that Hallmark was releasing a new Trasformers G1 Grimlock ornament, and now we have news that it is released. Both Seibertronians crazyfist and xrotorstormx reported getting these. Crazyfist reported that it was released this past week-end. Here is his quote below followed by images from these two Seibertronians.

To those that might be looking for the G1 Grimlock Hallmark Keepsake Christmas Ornament, it was released this past weekend. July 9th-10th saw the release online and in stores. I got mine in Winston-Salem, NC for $15.95 plus tax. Start Christmas early…ha ha!

This thing is super cute. But yeah, that's some odd packaging-and with the decepticon lettering even!

Right? It doesn't even mention Transformers at all outside of the logo (which chopped off the trademark). I'm also a little surprised that there's no mention of Hasbro licensing anywhere on the box when it's all over the website. Really strange, a little shocked Hasbro let them get away with that.

I think it should transform. Just make it out of the same plastic the KO's use and use the same mold as the G1 toy. It'd be easy, cheap, and a great way to reintroduce the mold.

Looks nice and all, but call me crazy, I think Christmas ornaments should actually, you know, have something to do with Christmas. Even something as simple as throwing a santa hat on Grimmy would have made it a thousand times more appropriate for a Christmas ornament.

I picked mine up Saturday. He looks really cool. The only question I have is why is the logo on the front a Decepticon logo and not Autobot?

Ah, ok, that's a little better, though I'm still a little surprised to see the Hasbro logo isn't somewhere obvious like the bottom corner of the box. I guess that's the difference between being the licensor and licensee.

That aside, I don't see a problem with this being an ornament. It's based on a toy, kids open toys on Christmas, sounds like a fit to me.

You will remember the Hallmark ornaments from previous years, such as Grimlock - we now have news of the 2017 edition, Soundwave, thanks to fellow Seibertronian zebanshee! Release date is July 15 2017, and it joins 2014's Optimus Prime, 2015's Megatron, and 2016's Grimlock. Check it out below.

Hmmm. The Grimlock ornament was cute and had its own unique little chibi style going for it, but in this case I'm not entirely sure what would make this attractive over just straight-up buying the actual G1 toy. Or maybe he's Titan Class-priced on Ebay by now, I dunno.

They make great little statues for G1 nostalgia.

And if you patrol Hallmark stores after Christmas, these things go for half price. I only have Grimlock, and that's how I bought him.

(I'm also not sure how Grimlock was "chibi." It seemed like a very faithful reproduction of the toy to me...just much smaller.)

I dont get it, the Grimlock one was just his G1 toy made smaller. If he looked chibi to you, then that just means the original G1 would look chibi to you too:

Without me telling you, would you know that was a pic of the G1 toy and not the ornament?

Soundwave is the same. And I dont know why we are better off buying the G1 one instead when this just serves as an ornament on a tree and doesnt transform. I wouldnt put G1 soundwave in my Christmas tree, but I would put this cute ornament instead.

Got mine preordered..... I like it. I feel nostalgic getting these...transformable or not they are still cool. Plus, I collect Hallmark ornaments too ...

Same reason the Lionel ornaments are almost always the first to go, even though most trees have an actual train encircling them. People get them because they represent a love of something, or a gift to someone who loved something. Most of the otnaments in my family's tree are either 1)things we love, or 2) of or from family. In this case, G1. You can't (easily) hang G1 Soundwave on a tree, and ehy would you? This is much easier.


Edit: but it occurs to me the distinction here might be in a difference to each person's particular traditions over the holiday
