Hasbro - G.I. Joe press junket new york city.jpg

When you attend a press junket, you typically get to speak with the actors and occasionally the writer, director, and sometimes even the producer. But when you attend a movie junket based on the extremely popular Hasbro toy line “G.I. Joe”, you get something completely new and unexpected.

That’s because Hasbro set up a toy room filled with both new and old “G.I. Joe” action figures and vehicles and then had the reporters covering the junket walk around with someone from the company. So after the jump you can see me with Wayne Charness (Vice-President of Communications) talking about all the toys on display and what Hasbro has in store for “G.I. Joe”. If you’re a toy collector, some of the vintage stuff is very cool. Take a look:
