TORn is heading to San Diego Comic Con, are you? Can't Post

San Diego Comic Con has begun to release their schedule, day by day, along with a ton of other information regarding everything a con-goer will need to know. But let's concentrate on what you, the Tolkien fans need to know.

Earlier this week we heard direct from Peter Jackson that he would not be attending SDCC, nor would he be sending any cast or special filmed footage. While that is a bummer for Hobbit fans hoping to get a first look at some exclusive footage, all is not lost. We at TheOneRing.net have you covered, with our '\"Unofficial Sneak Peek of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" panel taking place on Thursday, July 18 at 5:30pm in room 6A. We'll have numerous staff on hand to showcase the most current rumors, spy reports, conjecture, a surprise or two and a Q&A session.

This is where you, the fans, come in. We can't have a Q&A session without insightful questions from a curious audience. In fact, because Peter Jackson and the cast will not be appearing, it is down to TORn and you, the fans, to represent for Tolkien fandom. We'll bring the analysis and you bring the energy. Like last year, we will do a photo op for the Tolkien Cosplayers right after the panel. But if you don't have a Tolkien themed costume you can still support this fandom by wearing a TORn shirt, you've got 13 years of shirts to choose from. Let's turn the San Diego Convention Center into a demonstration of TORn Thursday.

Speaking of the Convention Center and the exhibit hall floor, you can find TheOneRing.net in not one, but two locations, just like last year. We'll be with our good friends at Badali Jewelry in booth #532/534 and WETA at booth #3513. Stop on by to chat us up, buy a TORn shirt or button, take part in one of our games or contests or maybe even be featured in our live stream.

We've created a Facebook Event page for our Thursday panel, which you will find linked here. TORn SDCC panel event Please RSVP for it if you intend to come, and make a note if you will be in costume or wearing your TORn shirt.

I'll be there! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hard to believe it's been a whole year. Thanks to a bad work situation, I can no longer post during the day, and after 8 hours on the computer, it is the last thing I want to do when I get home. I've missed you guys!

I saw many TORn folks in New Zealand for the premiere, but looking forward to seeing more of you in San Diego!
