Today was the kick-off to the New York Fair and Hasbro held a fan-centric event. I wasn’t there, but you can find the full presentation (via yakface.com) for Marvel, GI Joe and Transformers here and Star Wars here.  There’s tons of news in the presentation so I suggest you give it a read.  Some of the key items after the jump!
