    So I stopped by Hallmark to check out those Sonic Christmas ornaments. My thoughts were that they were not very good quality and expensive. The painting seemed sloppy, and at about $50 CAD for the pair, I just didn't feel like I needed them. Also I theme my Christmas tree how I think Robotnik would decorate his, industrial, flat-black and copper... so they wouldn't fit in... on the other hand, I would cherish them as my "Sonic" ornaments for life, so I'm indecisive as per usual...

    Anyone else thinking of getting them? Does anyone think they may increase in value as a collectors item? I'm looking for reasons to spend the cash I suppose.

    They probably will increase in value. It seems like Sonic merch always has a higher resale value, but if you would "cherish them for life" resale value doesn't matter much.

    Got my sister to pick me up a pair since she's way more likely to go to a hallmark store than me.

    My mom is all about Hallmark ornaments so I'm very likely going to get one for Christmas without asking. Not that I mind, although my tree is very small and I can barely fit all my ornaments on there as is. >.>

    The Knuckles ornament is probably going to be the most likely to increase in value due to being more limited in quantity.

    I had the opposite reaction, I was actually really surprised by the quality of the ornaments I got. The paint job was nice and the sculpts were delicate and detailed. I don’t know about 50 CAD but they we’re definitely worth 20 USD
     
  7. I don't know, the kid in me wants them but the adult in me is like... this is a minor feature on a tree that others may or may not even see, it is really worth spending money on them? They do look cool, though!

    I actually just have mine hanging from the ceiling on some fishing line lol. They might go on the tree, they might not.
