There’s only a few more days left to break out the Comic-Con news, and we’ve got one of, if not the, longest edition of Under the Tents to date this morning. What are the odds that cast members will show up for the Sense8 panel? Want a sneak peek at the latest Be@rbrick figure? What is Topps doing for Comic-Con? Who didn’t get the memo on banned selfie sticks?

We’ve got the answers to all of that and more.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • SpankyStokes reports that there is now at least a partial reveal of the previously announced Be@rbrick exclusive designed by Sket One based on the famous Huy Fung Foods packaging.  It will be available at Comic-Con booth #5146.  More news to come.
