Artist Inspirations: Uhura (2007-2020)

Uhura in her iconic pose, left hand up to her ear and elbow pointed out, was recreated in Keepsake form in 2007.

Right: The 2009 convention exclusive ornament is a simple repaint of the 2007 Uhura in red, happily, she strikes her famous pose wearing gold in the “The Carbonite Maneuver” (S:1, E:10). The back of the Hallmark box states Uhura had only wore gold in that one episode although she had donned it previously in “Mudd’s Women” (S:1,E:6).

2020 Star Trek Storytellers Hanging Around

Kevin Dilmore has announced that the 2020 Hallmark Star Trek Storyteller ornaments will be available until the entire series has been produced.  This means Kirk, Sulu, Uhura and the Enterprise tree topper will be available to purchase in 2021 and 2022.

We still have Spock, McCoy, Scotty and Chekov to be released over the next two years. Although there hasn’t been any official announcement, it is likely we will see Spock and Scotty in 2021 and McCoy and Chekov in the final year.

Whichever ornaments are released next year they will be available in both 2021 and 2022.  There is still no word if the 2021-2022 Star Trek releases will be exclusively Storytellers or if we will see other Star Trek ornaments. With all the new Star Trek series that have and will be coming out it is hard to imagine we won’t see something from Picard or Lower Decks.

2020 Hallmark Pricing, Part 5 – The Final Chapter

This will be the last post about Hallmark pricing for 2020.  In my response to their last email to me I asked why the equivalent Harry Potter Storytellers are cheaper than their Star Trek counterparts and below you will find their response.

Hopefully, the higher prices don’t drive away fans.

Keep Collecting the Future!

2020 Hallmark Star Trek Ornament Pricing

The 2020 Dream Book is now available to KOC members in physical form and a virtual catalog is available for download on Hallmark’s website.  Hallmark has also posted the 2020 ornaments on their website.  Unfortunately, the two do not jive.  Hallmark’s website has the expected prices of $29.99 for Uhura, Kirk and Sulu and $119.99 for the Enterprise.

The Dream Book is listing inflated prices of $34.99 for the character ornaments and $149.99 for the Tree Topper.
