“Our customers have been reserving these new releases all winter and we’re planning fun evenings to celebrate,” said Kevin Ball, Vice President of Marketing for Hastings Entertainment. “For the New Moon midnight release parties, each of our stores will give away one collectible Tonner Edward Cullen 17” Character Figure, priced at $139.99, after midnight. We’re anticipating that New Moon fans will be out in force for these midnight release events,” said Mr. Ball.
Hastings Entertainment will host the in-store parties at all Hastings locations. All parties will begin at 10:00pm, local time. Please contact store managers at the Hastings nearest to you for details on the Midnight Release parties in your area. Customers can go to www.goHastings.com to find their nearest store location.
