Just to let you know, we've got a few more Press Kit images (okay, a lot) images to process yet, and we may have a report or two to follow tomorrow. Keep checking back! And we're also going to try to schedule a chat on the Nightstar.net network within the next few days. Maybe Sunday or Monday. Keep watching this space.
Also, we may be moving a few more galleries over to alteredstatesmag.com as bandwidth availabity decreases. Thanks for all the attention. :)
A Personal Note from Phil:
I'd be remiss if I didn't point out two things -- one, you can E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org (the link probably got hidden at the bottom of our picture pages, but it's there). Two -- I couldn't have done this without the hard work of Daniel, Doug, Amy, and Matt, the ASM Team that was in New York the past week. These people know not only what pictures to take and what info to get -- but also how to get it. I doubt you'd see more professional people at Toy Fair. Always a class act, guys, and thanks for all you did -- including keeping me (somewhat) sane during the stress of the server going down.

2-20-2005, 12:26pm EST:
Okay. I don't want to do that again. Apparently, the traffic overload almost killed the server we're on. We're allowed to have pictures again as long as we don't tie up the processors. So to get the coverage up, we're doing this in straight HTML.
It ain't pretty, folks -- but ASM's coverage is back! Hang tight...

More Hasbro Pictures are online! Check out more Transformers, Action Man, Pokemon, Attacktix, Furby, and, of course -- Star Wars!

2-19-2005, 10:42am EST:
Starting later today, you'll get the coverage you love from our crew. First up on Saturday will include Hasbro, Mattel, and MGA Entertainment, with perhaps some other surprises!
And we're also planning a Live Chat sometime within the next few days, where you'll be able to pick the brains of ASM's intrepid crew! Keep watching for more details.
Thanks for being here for our Sixth year of coverage! We do appreciate all your kind comments and hope that the new ASM will grow and expand over the coming months.
