“There is an immense amount of excitement building around the Battleship and G.I. Joe brands and upcoming films,” says Simon Waters, senior vice president, global brand licensing and publishing, Hasbro. “The classic apparel collection at Aeropostale will allow fans to further immerse themselves in the iconic action-adventure brand experiences that have spanned from childhood play to big screen entertainment, and become a lifestyle statement.”
