New York ComicCon starts tomorrow! Can't Post

Greetings from the Big Apple! TheOneRing.net staffers are gathering to get set up and ready for New York ComicCon, which starts tomorrow and runs until Sunday 13th. We'll be at booth 3008 - that's a corner booth really near the entrance to 3A on the show floor. Come and see us! Here's some of the awesome stuff we'll have at the booth:



We have a new shirt design! Our dragon looks rather pleased with himself - that's why he's SMUG. (See what we did there...?) Celebrate all things dragonish as we get ready for The Desolation of Smaug! We'll also have our popular 'Bears and spiders and barrels...' shirt design, and possibly one or two other styles in limited quantities. As ever, shirts are $20 each or three for $50.

This year we'll be selling items from WETA at the booth! We'll have statues, mini hobbit holes and other delightful goodies from the New Zealand wizards! And if that wasn't enough, we'll also be selling Cryptozoic's new Hobbit Board Game and the Two Towers and Fellowship of the Ring Playing Card games!

Only got a few bucks to spare? We've got you covered, with an assortment of buttons, posters and magnets. Seriously, this year our booth is more stuffed with treasures than Smaug's lair! As the only Hobbit presence at New York ComicCon, our booth is the place for all your Middle-earth collectible goodness - get a head start on holiday shopping!

And of course we'll have some amazing prizes to give away; so stop by to browse, shop, chat and maybe win something special, such as a set of PEZ Hobbit dispensers, a beautiful dragon tote bag from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a copy of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey soundtrack, or even two tickets to see Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart on Broadway!

On Thursday night we have our Ringers take Manhattan party! Tickets are selling fast but there are still about TEN remaining, so get them before they're gone! (Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 - if we haven't sold out! - on the door.) This will be a night to remember - food, drink, music, great company, fabulous goody bags and some wonderful giveaways! We're also delighted that we will again be supporting Toys for Tots at this event - the Marines will be there to receive donations of toys or cash. All details on the party can be found here.

(Please note - if you're coming to the party but won't be at the con, and would like to buy a TORn shirt, email greendragon @ theonering.net to let me know - then we can be sure to bring the right sized shirt along to the party for you!)

Finally, our New York ComicCon panel this year will be on Sunday 13th at 12noon, in room 1A14. It will be 'An Unofficial Sneak Peek at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'. Come by to hear speculation, sneak peeks and spoilers! The room usually gets very crowded, so you may want to get in line a little early for this one... We'd hate for you to miss out!

Looking forward to a fun weekend - hope you can join us! If you can't be here in person, we'll be live streaming from the con, so you don't have to miss the excitement!

Denny's

Kumbuya

WETA

Sideshow Collectibles

Cryptozoic

Warner Bros.

Get an unofficial sneak peek at The Desolation of Smaug at Comic-Con today! [In reply to] Can't Post

At 12 noon today, TheOneRing.net staff will be presenting An Unofficial Sneak Peek: The Desolation of Smaug in Room 1A14 at the New York Comic-Con.

Join us then! But if you're going to NYCC, be sure to get in line early -- the room may be full!

Plus a quick reminder: swing by the TORn stand at the Con at Booth 3008, particularly if you're on the hunt for our merchandise. As we've previously announced, many of our current designs are being retired and this will be your last opportunity a whole bunch of our awesome t-shirts, buttons and other goodies!

We'd also like to thank our sponsors Weta, Sideshow Collectibles and Denny's for making our appearance at NYCC possible.
