erika, it is the same mold. The D23 is black and white tones like the cartoon. The convention one is brightly colored, really even nicer.

None of the websites that I look at have featured any Hallmark Comic Con information. Overall the coverage this year has seemed a bit sparse.

I was wondering why we hadn't heard anything about sneak peaks yet. Bummer.

I like the X-Wing on Dagabon and the Lack of Fate ornaments. The AT-AT is nice, but they did an AT-AT on Holt several years ago.

My hope is the AT-AT is the first storyteller ornament in the ESB series.

No! No more Star Wars series. smile

I might pick up the Luke and Vader minis. I don't have that many pop culture minis at present.

I'm not a star wars fan either, I was hoping for a sneak peak of Harry Potter ornaments.

If Hallmark does a ESB Storyteller series, I will not be collecting it. AT $40 an ornament, assuming they will not raise the price, it's too costly for basically some movie dialog.

I have the first five from the last two years of the NH Storyteller series and I'm not sure I will get the last two that are out this year.

Yes, Yes, Yes. More Star Wars Storytellers, please. smile
ESB, ROTJ and maybe even more. cool

Based on previous posts, it sounds like I am an outlier.

We have a 7.5 foot tree dedicated to Star Wars ornaments. With the new wreath this year, I figure I will put all 7 Star Wars Storyteller ornaments on it. I have a spot picked out on the wall right next to the Star Wars tree. So, I need more Storytellers ornaments for the tree.

I continue to back collect the Star Wars ornaments that we don't already have.

On a related note, there is one aspect of the Keepsake Power cord that bothers me. It restricts you to 7 synchronized ornaments. Your can daisy chain multiple Magic Cord ornaments. For example, the Once Upon a Christmas series is now up to 9 ornaments plus 1 complement. By daisy chaining 2 Magic cords, I can have all 10 ornaments synchronized. I know that the Magic Cord synchronization is not as sophisticated as the Keepsake Power Cord. I really wish there was a way to daisy chain Keepsake Power Cords. I think I feel an email request to Hallmark coming on. grin

You don't have to have all the ornaments of a series on the same Power Cord. They will still work if you put them are two cord that are near each other. Last year, my Star Wars and Mickey ornaments were on two different cords and two different trees about 10 feet apart from each other. Some of each collection were on both trees, and they all worked together just fine.

Also keep in mind that with the Magic Cord, all ornaments that were connected to the cord would at least flash their lights in time with any music playing. With the new Power Cord, only the ornaments of a certain collection interact with each other. The rest of the ornaments don't react at all. So as long as a collection ever exceeds 7 ornaments, you don't need a way to connect more than 7 to the same cord.

Erika, The Dognapper ornament for the KOC Event is a color variation and the D23 is the black and white version.

You don't have to connect (daisy chain) Power Cords together as the ornaments from a collection will still sync even if they are on different Power Cords.

I would like to understand how this is possible. confused Is there an electrical engineer in the house?

The ornaments operate on DC power supplied by the AC adapter that comes with each cord. Signalling between ornaments on the same cord is probably accomplished by an AC signal on top of the DC power. However, signalling between ornaments on different power cords requires the signal to pass through the AC adapter on one power cord and then through the AC adapter on the second power cord. I would expect the AC adapter on the second cord to filter out the ornament signal since it is converting AC to DC.

The only other possibility that I can think of is that each ornament includes a wireless transceiver. I would be surprised if Hallmark is going to that expense in each ornament.

When it gets closer to Christmas and I have all of my Keepsake Power cords and Magic cords out, I will do some testing.

I'm still hoping for a Count Dooku (spelling?) and a Mace Windu from the prequels. Also a Clone Trooper Transport.
