Comic-Con Exclusive Hallmark Ornaments

The most exclusive Hallmark ornaments for 2010 are probably the ones being offered this week at Comic Con. Comic Con is the largest comic book convention in the world and it is being held in San Diego this week. Hallmark is releasing 3 exclusive ornaments for attendees to purchase.

The 75 Years of DC Comics ornament features Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman.  Hallmark will sell 750 of these ornaments at the convention for $40 each.

From Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a set of two ornaments: K-3PO and R-3PO.   These ornaments are repaints of the C-3PO Hallmark Ornament offered in 2003. There will be 1,000 of this ornament set offered for $30 per set.
The Simpsons: Mr. Burns' Christmas Bonus ornament is limited to 500 ornaments at $20 per ornament.

Now don't rush down to San Diego hoping to run in and buy these.  Comic Con tickets have been sold out for months.  If you want one of these ornaments, your best best is to watch for them on Ebay.  I'm sure they'll start appearing within the next couple days--if they aren't already posted.  Expect the prices on them to be pretty high though.
