2011 Glow In The Dark Defiant Sells on eBay *SOLD*

Limited to a run of 700, the 2011 Defiant isn’t as rare as the 2009 Uhura Gold (450 units) but may be more in demand. The glow in the dark ornament doesn’t show up on second hand resell sites as often as the Uhura Gold, although one did sell in December for $1,899.99. One factor leading to the Defiant’s scarcity, there is a subset of Star Trek ornament collectors that only collect Hallmark’s ships and do not collect the Star Trek figures. And it doesn’t hurt that the Defiant has cool, glow in the dark action!

Sold December 10, 2021 for $1899.99.

107) 2021 HMS Bounty Klingon Bird-of-Prey

Star Trek™ HMS Bounty Klingon™ Bird-of-Prey Metal Ornament

Product Details

Early script drafts of “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” used Romulans in their classic Bird-of-Prey warship as the film’s antagonists. When later drafts swapped Klingons for Romulans, the ship’s designation as a Bird-of-Prey remained and the craft was redesigned to reflect Klingon technology. Put the fearsome-looking ship on display with this meticulously detailed Christmas tree ornament. PopMinded event exclusive—one of just 3,750 issued.

PopMinded Artwork by Marceli Colato

If you have picked up any Star Trek event exclusive ornaments since 2018 you may have noticed the new black box design. It is an all black design that stands out against the white boxes Hallmark has used since 2006. With this change, on the sides of the box, is a gloss black doodle-inspired artwork on a flat black background that can go unnoticed unless the light catches it just right.

This artwork was created by Marceli Colato who also made drawings for Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, DC Comics and Harry Potter. “I was able to create cohesive branding that would be used in a variety of spaces, including visual merchandising, print/digital marketing, packaging designs, and unique gift product” says Colato.

Below is the complete piece of artwork Colato created for the Star Trek PopMinded by Hallmark line. Can you “spot” all the references?
