Comic-Con

If you’re going to San Diego Comic Con International 2015 and planning to attend a presentation in the infamous Hall H, here is some information you should know: Comic Con will be bringing back their Toucan Tracker wristbands which were introduced last year. The wristbands intend to discourage line cutting. Here is what Comic Con says of the process:

Toucan Tracker wristbands give attendees flexibility based upon their priorities at Comic-Con. If you wish to get a front section seat in Hall H, you are welcome to wait in line overnight once you receive your wristband. If seat placement is not a priority to you, wristbands allow you to reserve general seating in Hall H and come back in the morning. Toucan Trackers are essentially a way for you to know that you have a seat in Hall H, whether you are physically in line or not!

So what do you need to know? Find out after the jump.

San Diego Comic-Con has yet to officially release its schedule, but many things are already going on. We know Disney and Lucasfilm are bringing Star Wars to Hall H at some point Friday, we’ve heard definitively that Marvel Studios is skipping this year, and now two more studios are joining Marvel on the sidelines.

Martin plush toy that will be available as a Comic-Con exclusive next month! Read More »
