Just in time for Christmas in July, Hallmark stores are starting to carry the G1 Soundwave Ornament. Our very own news staffer Bronzewolf was kind enough to send us a few pictures of the ornament. From them we can see the front and back of this well detailed ornament. It also appears to be sold for $15.95 in store. If you spot any new figures or merch, be sure to let us know!

If you enjoy this holiday ornament, have a look at the G1 Grimlock ornament from last year!

That really looks like it can transform, but so did the grimlock.

This is news? I picked mine up 2 weeks ago. I'd've posted something.

Sorry for the blurry photos, folks. I had to take a quick picture as the Hallmark I was at was closing for the night.
By the way:
No, it doesn't transform,
No, it doesn't have any articulation,
No, Laserbeak doesn't pop out in any way, although it looks like he is a separate piece, not sculpted into his chest/just painted on. Perhaps a gimmick that was never fully realised? :-?

It's been a while since we last had word of Hallmark's Transformers-themed Christmas ornaments for this year - Hot Rod was found on Walmart's website and Optimus Prime was available for a reduced price on JCPenney's site, both in late September. Now we have not only word of the two appearing at brick-and-mortar retail stores, but also of what seems to be a packaging variant for the Optimus Prime ornament!

Tips from Seibertronians cdavid3 and Bounti76 on November 4th alerted us to the presence of these ornaments on store shelves, but another photo from autobot00 shows us perhaps the more interesting note in all this: the Optimus ornaments appears to have two different sets of potential packaging. Whereas the pictures shared by cdavid3 and Bounti76 show the box to have The Last Knight branding and a stock image of Optimus Prime from the new live-action film (much like the Hot Rod ornament's own packaging), autobot00's instead present a version of the box with the Generation 1-styled logo and a stock image of G1 Optimus Prime. The ornaments appear to be otherwise identical, meaning that there's no cause for concern if you just want the thing itself, but oddities like this are always worth noting.

Have you seen any of these ornaments on shelves at retail stores? Have you, perchance, seen both variants of Optimus - and if you have, did you notice any differences between the two aside from the logo and stock image? Share your thoughts, and as always keep watching Seibertron.com for any future Transformers news - big, small or just plain odd!

You got me excited when you said "Hot Rod" ornament... then I saw it was a movie version. :-(

Oh well, good for those who want it, I guess.

Yeah, sorry man. I'm sure we'll get a G1-styled one eventually though, if the trend keeps up of having two Transformers ornaments a year, so... optimism! I guess.

There are at least 3 variants of the Optimus Prime packaging.

Target has the same Hallmark ornament in a hanging card without a box and with the G1 Prime artwork.

Well that's interesting. I wonder if any others will show up.

Hate that I missed out on the first Hallmark G1 Optimus, so I guess the Target one will make an acceptable substitute. Just gotta find one with good eye-paint...

I would rather find transformers under my tree than hanging on it.
