That's a curious announcement, eh? :)
It's the month after Toy Fair if I'm not mistaken - so should we expect Hasbro to be pulling out the late '04 goods to show off? :confused:

If Hasbro does next year like they did this year, there's no way they'll go to the LA Wizworld con because they'll be too busy with their own Toy Fair-style display in Rhode Island.

That's right JT, I forgot about Hasbro pulling out of TF for the most part.

My original thought was that since TF is a buyer/reporter only gig, it would be nice for Hasbro to "take it to the people" right after TF to show off their wares there.

My bad. :)

I'll expect the L.A. show to start off on the level of Arlington - and maybe it will grow in status over the years?

Perhaps, I know that Hasbro didn't go to the second WW con this year, they only hit the big Chicago show, so even without their personal toy showing in RH, I would be surprised if they went to WWLA.
