UPDATE: The New York Toy Fair Hasbro Presentation Event LIVE Blog starts around 1:00 pm EST on Saturday.
Well, we were prepared but Hasbro did not give out the wi-fi password until AFTER the presentation. REALLY!?? But what’s worse was the Star Wars announcements and showroom… sad. We have photos going up shortly but don’t expect much there either.
Director of global marketing Jeff Labovitz, senior manager of global marketing Joe Ninivaggi takes the stage.
