PopMinded by Hallmark at NYCC Beginning Today
Big Week for Hallmark Star Trek Ornaments
This is is the biggest week of the year for Hallmark Star Trek Ornament fans. It all begins Thursday at New York Comic Con (October 6-9, 2022) where we are expecting to see sneak peeks of some 2023 Hallmark Star Trek Hallmark ornaments.
Hallmark Ornament Debut (October 8-16, 2022) begins Saturday and with it the arrival of two new 2022 Star Trek ornaments. The 2022 McCoy ornament is the last of the three-year, eight-ornament Star Trek Storyteller series. The 2022 U.S.S. Enterprise ornament will be the first to represent the latest Star Trek series, Strange New Worlds.
A big week, indeed! You’re kind to point it out. I’ll admit that I’m eager for Friday, which is the first day that Storytellers buyers who also are KOC members will get the chance to hear the full set in action. My work toward this set began in July 2018 with our first brainstorm. Like any of our Keepsake Ornament initiatives, the likelihood of our doing more of them depends on buyer support. We’ve had great support for this set so far. I’ll throw in one plug: for those of you who haven’t bought in yet, I hope you’ll consider it once you get to hear the full show. If any of you have any questions about the set, I’ll be free to discuss all of it starting Friday.
As far as sneak peeks for 2023, I’m as anticipatory for these as you are but I’ve had no confirmation that our Star Trek line will be previewed at the show. As soon as I know one way or the other, I’ll pass it along. I’m out of the loop this time around as I will not be attending NYCC this week. No reason for that beyond it just not being my turn this year. Those of you going will have plenty of other PopMinded by Hallmark staff members very happy to answer your questions.Kevin Dilmore

No Hallmark Star Trek Sneak Peeks at ‘22 SDCC
I regret to report that no 2023 Star Trek product is on display. There are no sneak peeks because of our limited display space.
We have three small displays at SDCC. All of this has been displayed previously in Chicago.Kevin Dilmore, 7/22/22
