PopMinded by Hallmark plans its highest-ever level of yearly participation at the nation’s largest pop culture fan gatherings with limited quantities of products and collectibles developed exclusively for events starting next month.

PopMinded, which debuted nationally last year, is Hallmark’s new way to celebrate fandom with gifts and collectibles created and chosen with all fans in mind. PopMinded continues and expands on Hallmark’s decade-long tradition of providing event attendees access to Hallmark’s ever popular event exclusive products through its event pop-up store.

PopMinded will appear at Planet Comicon Kansas City scheduled April 28-30 at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Mo.

Three exclusive Hallmark Keepsake Ornament designs including the Enterprise C repaint, an itty bittys® plush, and two other gift items will be sold in limited quantities at Comic-Con International, to be held July 20-23 in San Diego, Calif.

U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-C, a Keepsake Ornament inspired by the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” depicts the iconic starship with a battle-damage paint scheme as it appeared on screen.  This repaint of a 2015 Keepsake Ornament has a total production run of 3,325 and sales will be limited to 225 per day.

PopMinded will make its first appearance at The Official 2017 Star Trek Convention, scheduled Aug. 2-6 at the Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. The repainted U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C Keepsake Ornament previously available at Comic-Con International will be sold at this event with 100 available each day.

Another first for PopMinded will be Salt Lake Comic Con, scheduled Sept. 21-23 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Products to be sold at the PopMinded booth will be announced closer to the event.

At New York Comic Con, set for Oct. 5-8 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, PopMinded will offer all items previously available at Comic-Con International with the same daily allocations.

Additional details about prices for each exclusive product, as well as activity plans for each event will be announced closer to the respective convention dates.

Hallmark Sculptor Lynn Norton’s Favorite Ornament

When Lynn begins creating a Keepsake Ornament, he researches the subject of his work until he is comfortable with his mental plan for sculpting it from beginning to end. He draws inspiration not only from his fellow Keepsake Artists but from his childhood memories of time spent in front of the TV.
“Being the first generation to be introduced to television at an early age, I was entranced by the imaginative sets and props that were constructed to bring stories to life,” Lynn says. “As crude as they were, the science-fiction artifacts of the early 1950s still inspire me—especially when I get a chance to sculpt one of them.”
That said, it may come as no surprise to learn Lynn’s personal favorite among his Keepsake Ornaments.
“I have to say that the “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” space-station ornament is still my favorite. It was the most challenging sculpture for me and the Keepsake engineering staff,” he says. “My idea to offer it with docked miniature starship ornaments turned out to be a winning combination with Star Trek fans.”

Lynn Norton Gives Insight on Star Trek Ornaments

Source: StarTrek.com

After 50 years, the distinctive image of the USS Enterprise has come to serve not only as home for hundreds of explorers of the future but also as an iconic symbol of the Star Trek universe and all that represents to its fans. For more than half that time, sculptor Lynn Norton has devoted uncounted hours to interpreting incarnations of the beloved starship, creating Keepsake Ornaments for Hallmark that bring fans’ favorite memories and fantastic moments to Christmas trees each year (and admittedly to collectible displays all year long for many people).

As many fans’ thoughts turn to decorating for the holidays, Lynn shares his thoughts not just on his appreciation for starship designers but his own joy in helping fans celebrate with ornaments of the good ol’ NCC-1701 — and bloody A, C, D and E (just not B).

“I consider the ships I have sculpted to be like characters rather than objects,” he says. “Each is recognizable, and almost as specific as a human face. I’m looking at them as a fan, of course — I’ve been watching since the first broadcast—but also as a sculptor who appreciates their beauty and qualities as icons.”
