Hasbro Preview Night
7/14/2005 5:53:28 AM | Reported by Adam
After exhibiting at Comic-Con International year after
year, Hasbro makes sure to hold back some choice items for your revealing
pleasure, bypassing events like Celebration III in favor of hitting a wider
audience alongside the likes of their other hot brands, which this year included
G.I. Joe in 3 3/4-inch, 12-inch and Sigma Six flavors, Transformers Cybertron
and Alternators, Blythe, My Little Pony, and a surprising amount of other stuff.
If you have any interest in male action toys, a trip to Hasbro's booth at San
Diego is arguably superior to any trip you could make to Toy Fair in New York.
