Hello, my name is William and some of you know who I am. I have made some trades with some member of Hiss. Only very few of you knows I'm hearing impaired and am a stay home dad due to the fact I'm on worker's comp from an injury I sustained while working at Wal Mart. After reading the thread about the Stinger and Flak. I too was pissed about Hasbro had them on the website and then was taken down for unknown reason. At another thread months back, people was wondering if Hasbro was going to make the USS Flagg. I know it was highly unlikely that they were gonna make em. I did my research to find the Hasbro company number and I could only find one. I took the liberty to call and seek information about the 2 vehicles and the USS Flagg for myself. I obtained some information I want to share. Now before anything, I want to say that I'm hearing impaired/deaf since I was a child. We do have this program called the IP-Relay which is called "Internet Provided-Relay" where I get online and call this relay operator who will make the call for me. The operator then will type what the other party say and tell the other party what I typed. Its a pretty cool way for people like me to call. Also it gives me the liberty to save the converstation in case I need to read it again. I have saved the converstation and posted it on Hiss to show you what a represnative of Hasbro said. 2 thing I must add as some of you will wonder what is "GA" and "SK". GA is short for "go ahead" which tell me and the other party when its either their turn to speak or my turn to type. SK is short for "stop keying" which means I'm about to hang up or the other party is about to hang up. I know I babbled a lot so here is the converstation of what was said and who I spoke to along with the Hasbro phone number. When you see "thirteenofchaos" that is my screen name to AIM as its required to sign in so I can contact the operator (thatshamilton). Read on this info.

Well..what do you all think of this? See that part where the operator said this rep whispered " I'm soo in trouble for sharing this information". Makes me wonder what's going on or if this is true or what?

Wow this is some great info! William, he said he could be in trouble for giving you some of this info. You may want to edit his name and screen name.(If you haven't already done so)
Great work though!

Top secret on the FLAGG? That sounds interesting. Good find Sab. Let's hope there is some truth in their statements.

Thanks for taking a stand and calling hasbro. I think hasbro is repacking the flak and stinger in new packages like the target jets
(no window box) The flagg is possible but not for a long time.

If a Flagg does happen, and that's a big if, it will only be possible if the Pit sells and sells well.

Is ThatsHamilton a free service? If so, I might get into that to have all my calls recorded too.
