Its the middle of July, and never too early to start thinking about the next 20 weekends ahead.
Hallmark's Megatron Keepsake Ornament has been released and is a follow up to last years Optimus Prime. And, like before this tree dangler is a tribute to the original 80's toy representation of the character. Hopefully, this is a regular annual thing!
Hallmark has put together an uncanny scaled down static duplicate of the popular original toy. It has no articulation, and of course – it does not transform! This also skips the past complications of Megatron's questionably controversial alt-mode.
My criticism of the old toy has always been the fragile robot mode. This sadly translates a lot worse as a light plastic Christmas ornament, and is a delicate model as a result. Hallmark have probably foreseen this and have packed this ornament without a plastic tray and a lot more tissuepaper than Optimus Prime had last year.
Unfortunately, no hanging string is included. There is a thin eyelet for 'sold separately' string located on the right shoulder.
In a nutshell, this is no way a toy though based on one. A brilliant looking collectable all the same.
