    Default So is Hallmark not doing any more arcade game ornaments?

    I just hung the Pac-Man and Galaga ones on my tree. I was hoping they would do Ms. Pac-Man or Tron (to tie in with the movie) for this years collector ornaments - Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

    Is Hallmark done making these ornaments? I was really hoping to start a full collection of these..

    There was a thread over at KLOV about this for awhile now. Nothing this year so they contacted the main designer or something similar. There's a pretty good chance you'll get something for 2011 as the interest has been communicated to them.

    The Sam Flynn lightcycle will have to do this year.

    I have the Pac-Man one, but not the Galaga one. I would love to see a Tron one, that's one of my favorite arcade games. Would look really nice on the tree.

    And there was a Sam Flynn lightcycle one? I'll have to look that one up. Who released it, Hallmark as well?

    I went lookin' for the next one too. I was hoping they'd keep going. Got both Pac-Man and Galaga. Looking forward to Donkey Kong. Or my ultimate dream machine, Time Pilot.

    I use them both as desktop decorations, year round. Hopefully there will be a 2011 ornament... to buy in Jan. 2012 for 1/2 price.


    Hallmark also used the arcade licenses to make a line of greeting cards with sound chips. My local CVS has the Frogger & Galaga cards but I think there are several others too.

    Seriously, I thought Ms. Pac-Man or Rally-X would've been this years, had they stuck to the old Bally/Midway style cabinets.

    I do this, too. When they're not on the tree, they're on my computer desk.
