No Limited Edition Hallmark Keepsake Ornament

imageFor collectors curious about whether or not there was going to be a Hallmark exclusive ornament at Gold Crown Stores next month I received official confirmation from customer service saying the following:

We are very sorry, but unfortunately we do not have a Star Wars Keepsake ornament available this year for Ornament Premiere, Debut or Holiday Open House.

We appreciate your interest in Hallmark and hope we were able to help you.

Episode 365: A New Star Wars Book Pops Up!

In 2007 Matthew Reinhart brought a new dimension to Star Wars books with Star Wars: A Pop Up Guide to the Galaxy, a book that helped redefine what a pop-up book could be for Star Wars fans. It quickly became a New York Times Bestseller and now Matthew is back with his follow up–Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-Up Adventure. General Grievous, Acklay, and more, this book has light up features, sounds, and so much more! And on this week’s Star Wars Action News, Matthew joins Arnie and Marjorie to discuss this new prequel era book for fans of all ages!

Also for fans of all ages, this past week Hasbro and Lucasfilm announced Star Wars Angry Birds, a videogame with toy tie-ins from Hasbro including an Early Angry Bird Kit! Some fans disdain this new license while others embrace it. Hear both sides of the discussion on this week’s podcast.
