We are officially full throttle with our coverage of the American International Toy Fair for 2015 and this next post is a very special one to be including for you at long last. This chapter finds us exploring the Hasbro Toys showroom which is actually offsite of the Javits Center and closer to Times Square and this would be our outlets very first time exploring the showroom.
After checking in, the attending press are led to an auditorium, lecture hall sort of space to get the low down from Hasbro Toys company reps who specialize in each and every product line. The stuff that interests me most based on the coverage we do is of course “Star Wars”, “Marvel Comics” and the “Transformers” properties. Thought tweeting, Facebooking and yes even Instagramming is welcome from the showroom, you are not permitted to record or photograph any of the presentation. Trust me it was super interesting.
After the presentation, the publicity team leads you downstairs to the showroom and its here where its a world of wonder. Everything is set up into sections with “Transformers” on one part and the “Marvel Legends” items and the like in another. I don’t think I need to explain which properties are which so let’s let the images do the talking. Enjoy. I’ll chime in if necessary.
