Comparing Hallmark’s Transporters

Transporter Ornament

Featured characters: Chief Engineer Scott, Captain Kirk, Science Officer Spock
Transporter pads: 3
Power source: Requires 3 AAA batteries
Size: 4¼” H
Artist: Anita Marra Rogers
Features: Press the button to see and hear Transporter effects.

Comments: A big bang in a small package. What you give up in character detail and likeness you gain in light and sound. Possibly the brightest and loudest ornament in Hallmark’s Star Trek line. The only Transporter without dialogue.

Transporter Tabletop Decoration
Year: 2019
Featured characters: Science Officer Spock, Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy
Transporter pads: 6
Power source: Plugs into a standard 120-volt wall outlet, no batteries needed

Artist: Orville Wilson
Features: Continuous light effect. Press the button to hear dialogue from the original “Star Trek” television series and see a synchronized light show.
MSRP: $99.99
Comments: Fantastic detail, most obvious in the away team’s overly snug uniforms. Best reproduction of the transporter pad. Dialogue is clear with more bass than the most Magic Sound. No batteries is a plus if power is easily accessible. Larger size could be a detriment if display space is a premium.

Transporter Snow Globe
Year: 2022
Featured characters: Science Officer Spock, Captain Kirk, Lt. Uhura
Transporter pads: 3
Power source: Requires 3 AAA batteries
Size: 4.88″ W x 7.25″ H x 4.88″ D

MSRP: $99.99
Comments: The spinning glitter is an awesome new transporter effect. Cool dialogue. Friendly size for displaying on a shelf or desk. Character detail quality falls in the middle of the three transporters.

Artist Inspirations: Tabletop Transporter (2019)

In what first appears to be a sculpt that would likely be an aggregate of different poses turns out to be from one image.

All three characters in the same pose, phasers on their sides and tricorder hanging from McCoy’s right shoulder.

Sculptor, Orville Wilson, took a few liberties by slimming down the uniforms while bulking up the physiques. I would be happy to have Mr. Wilson commissioned to design a statue in my ”likeness” after I am gone.
