Coming somewhat out of left field just a week before the Convention, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club sends the following email with a picture!
“This year, Hasbro is sponsoring a private parachute drop for school kids to help promote the convention locally.
Since Hasbro knew that the venue was not accessible to attendees, they wanted to make sure you were a part of this great event by giving you one of the limited edition Flint figures that will be used at the drop.
These will be handed out to everyone with a convention badge who attends either of the two presentations given by Alan Hassenfeld on Friday morning in the Narragansett Ballroom at the Westin.
The first presentation will be at 8:30am and the second one will be at 11:30am. No seating will be allowed after 9:00am and 12:00pm.
The first Hasbro tour group’s presentation will be after their Hasbro tour while the second Hasbro tour group’s presentation will be before their tour. Don’t be late! No seating will be allowed after 9:00am and 12:00pm. Figures will be distributed at the conclusion of Mr. Hassenfeld’s presentation are are allocated one per attendee. Thanks to all of the fans who sent in questions for this once-in-a-lifetime event!
Here is “Paradrop” Flint!
See you in RI! – Brian”
