Starts today!  :)

We'll have pictures eventually, not sure when they will start rolling in though.

And, just an FYI - The Hasbro Panel is on Friday, July 27th.

11:30 am (Pacific) - What’s New and What’s Coming from Hasbro:
Come for first announcements about Hasbro’s products that you might not hear anywhere else, plus a special sneak preview of the 2008 product line. Meet members of Hasbro’s Star Wars marketing and design teams, the talented people who work on the company’s Attacktix, Titanium, and Star Wars action figure line. Q&A time included

How 'bout tonight? (Preview Night)  :P

I like this one, where the nutsacks at HasbroToyShop.com are already capping off their line just a few minutes into Preview Night, and creating all kinds of wonderful vibes as we head into the rest of the week...  ::)

...a special sneak preview of the 2008 product line.

I wonder how much of their presentation is going to focus on their new Indiana Jones line, which they're going to unveil for the first time at their booth on Friday afternoon...  Hopefully they're saving at least a few fun surprises for the SW line though, outside of everything we've heard of and/or seen already.  Considering there were hardly any new announcements that came out of C4 (AT-PT and Grievous Fighter), I'm hoping they saved some nuggets for SDCC here.

You'd think so, but either it's being shown at EE's booth there (if they have one) and no one's made it back there yet, or it's just not out yet.  I'm assuming the latter, since no one else seems to have pics of it up yet either.  That might be one of the sets that Hasbro's holding for their post-Q&A unveiling.

It's nice when someone can find a positive in any situation.  And I concur!

From that photo I'm actually surprised how many people are there on preview night.  How exactly do you get in for that, buy a ticket for the full weekend?  I always though preview night was mostly for press, VIPs, crew, exhibitors and the like more so than for the general public.  But, I've never been so I've never asked about that before.

Preview Night is open to all pre-registered 4-day and 3-day badge holders, media, and industry professionals.  It's kind of like a "free" night if you buy the big ticket badges.

I thought it was this afternoon sometime (1:30 maybe?), but I can't remember the time for sure.  I'm looking forward to what the "2008 sneak preview" will have in it.

Was there actually a Q&A or was it just a show and tell?  If there was no Q&A Hasbro is sending us a message...

From SSG's Hasbro panel wrap-up, that they just ran out of time to do the Q & A stuff.  Apparently didn't even have enough time to show everything they were going to.

Yea that's right Matt. They didn't get to show all teh exclusives they had either. So there's MORE stuff coming!!!

Wow.

Thankflly not to much in the way of army building. That means I'm going to have some money saved up by the end of the year....Something that hasn't happened in a long time...a long time.

Personally, I think they're  tired of answering the same questions over and over, so they timed their presentation just right.  They "ran out of time" at C4 also.
