I stopped by Hallmark this weekend to see if they had the "exclusive" Royal Guard ornament, but didn't see any sign of them at all (or even a spot for them).  Last year, I didn't have any problem finding the Tusken exclusive (although it did sell out well before the holidays), but apparently that isn't the case this year.  I ended up grabbing the Series ornament from this year (Palps) since I was there anyways, but I was a bit disappointed that the Royal Guard was gone already.  I personally only grab the OT character ornaments, but I was surprised they didn't have something Clone Wars related out this year.

There are some pretty good rumors that there will eventually be a Clone Wars ornament item this year, but due to the whole 7/26 date, they couldn't/can't sell it yet.

I would be surprised if we saw one since they released everything except the minis set on 7/26.

Never did find a Tuskin Raider. I will need to be sure to grab this years exclusive so I don't have 2 that I am short. Otherwise I have all of them since they started coming out. In the past I put up a tree in my basement that is nothing by my Star Wars ornaments as there is enought to fill a tree and my wife has not intention of letting me do that to the family tree.

I just need to find a model of the Death STAR to put on the top of the tree tha tlights up so I can have a STAR on the top of the tree.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Looks like there is an early look at the Hallmark Star Wars Ornaments for 2009.  It looks like the following are on the way:

Phantom Menace Duel (Obi/Qui-Gon/Maul)
Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise
Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder
Clone Wars Anakin and Ahsoka

Also of note is another Indy ornament, "Retrieving the Idol"

I'm curious to see Luke's Speeder and I like the duel, but otherwise this isn't an exciting year to me so far...  E1's not my favorite film so the duel looks ok but isn't exciting.  Luke's Speeder isn't as exciting as the fighters and things, so I'm not even sure on that one.  I'm pretty likely to wait for clearance for both.

Palpatine's throne from this last year's figure made a REALLY nice action figure throne though...  That's where mine is, and it is perfect.  I wish they'd add more "environment" pieces to their figures. ;)

It really seems anymore that you're better off waiting for clearance on these the majority of the time.  It depends on who the figure is for that year, but I know the light/sound vehicles and things like that are almost always on clearance.  I've just stuck to the character ornament of each year for the most part.  The vehicles are neat and I'd like to track down the ones I missed eventually, but the SW ornaments in our house are relegated to a little SW tree in our office, and there just isn't room for everything.  I'm curious to see what the Landspeeder will be like as well.  I've also stuck to OT only with the ornaments (aside from a Yoda), but that TPM duel one looks kind of spiffy.  Nice to see there is another Indy ornament.  I got last year's for $4, so I might look to add this one as well.
