Ornament Review: Lego Imperial Stormtrooper - 2012 Hallmark Star Wars Ornament

Stars: 5 out of 5
Pros: Slightly big Lego Stormtrooper turned into ornament. What's not to love?
Cons: Slight tip forward
The Bottom Line
A great ornament
Plus no need to use the force
You'll enjoy as is

This is the Lego Ornament You're Looking For

With the success of last year's Lego Darth Vader ornament (which was reissued this year), I wasn't surprised when they announced the Lego Imperial Stormtrooper for this year.  And the geeks like me will love it.

As the name suggests, this is a simple design.  The base is a gray Lego block with Lego Star Wars written on it in the appropriate fonts.  The Stormtrooper is standing on the block.  He looks like he is walking since his left foot is attached to the block and his right is behind him with just the front touching.  He has a rather big and blocky body and his head is shaped like the mask.  In his right hand, he's holding a Lego ray gun that's black with a round orange block at the tip.

This ornament isn't the normal Lego character size.  I'd say he's roughly twice that size.  It makes him seem big, but he is in line with other Hallmark ornaments, so he's not really that big.

And he looks good.  This is a Lego character turned into an ornament, so if you are a fan of Legos, you'll love it.  The ornament is mostly white, but then so is a Stormtrooper.  And he'll really stand out on your tree.

The base of the ornament is a Lego block, as I mentioned earlier.  That means it is nice and flat on the bottom, so you can set it out if you prefer to do that over hanging it on your tree.

The hook for hanging is on the back top of his head.  He tips forward very slightly, but for the most part you won't be able to tell, especially when you get him hung on your tree.

So if you are looking for the perfect ornament for a geek you know and love, the Lego Imperial Stormtrooper will fit that bill.  Trust me, they'll love it.

Original Price: $14.95
