Under the Tents: SDCC News for June 23, 2013 [Lazy Sunday Edition]

We’ve started a new, quasi-regular column on the Blog titled “Under The Tents”. The title is symbolic, as it’s representative of the times we all line up under the tents waiting for those big moments to happen inside Hall H or Ballroom 20.

Here’s the rest of the stuff you might have missed for today:

  • The Star Trek Enterprise D Bridge Restoration group posted on its Facebook page it is looking for some hard-working volunteers to help with their booth, #3921.

You must be available July 17-21 in San Diego (or most of the days) send us an email to PapoosaProductions@yahoo.com, give us your name, email, phone number AND you have a photo of you (preferably in Cosplay) ALL THE BETTER!

Their booth will be located near Adult Swim, Nickelodeon, Konami, Legendary Entertainment, Square Enix and Weta, so you’ll have a great view of the action. And, the Restoration group is teasing they’ll be working with some “very big stars” so it might be a good chance to hob-nob with Star Trek stars new and old. Check out the Facebook post for more information.

  • Cable network FEARnet is bringing Holliston, a comedy/horror sitcom that’s currently airing its second season, according to creator/star Adam Green via Twitter:

  • Arthur Parsons, Game Director at Traveler’s Tales Games and developer of the popular LEGO video games, hinted via Twitter we would be getting some reveals about the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game at Comic-Con:

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is scheduled to be released on game consoles October 31, 2013. Pre-order from Amazon.com and receive a $10 credit on a future purchase.

  •  The sixth Toucan Tip of the Day has been posted to the Official Blog of Comic-Con International: “Set Up a Meeting Place and Time in Advance!” Here’s a snippet from the tip(pet – sorry, we couldn’t resist):

If you’re coming with friends and family and going your separate ways, set up a meeting place and time in advance where you can all gather to head home or go out to dinner or visit the fun nighttime panels and events at Comic-Con. That way even if your phone’s battery runs out from all those great photos you took, you’re covered!

  • It had been recently announced the popular Syfy series Warehouse 13 would be ending with a six-episode fifth-season next year, and fans wondered if they would be able to say goodbye to Pete, Myka, Artie, Claudia and the rest of the gang. Well, we now know this year the show will be attending it’s final Comic-Con, according to a tweet from star Eddie McClintock:

  • What if…Quentin Tarantino was ever allowed to make his Star Wars movie? Today’s RIPT Apparel t-shirt aims to find out. Take a look at “Scoundrel Dogs”, available only until midnight, then gone forever.
