Hallmark Unveils Plans, Reveals Exclusive Keepsake Ornaments for Comic-Con 2012!

Hallmark announces its return to Comic-Con International in San Diego – the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world. Celebrating its fifth year at Comic-Con, Hallmark will provide more than 100,000 attendees access to Comic-Con-exclusive Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments, visits with a Keepsake Ornament artist and sneak peeks of products to be released in 2013.

During the convention, held July 11-15, 2012, Hallmark will sell limited quantities of the following Keepsake Ornaments:

  • 4-LOM and Zuckuss: This two-pack features the criminal droid 4-LOM and Gand tracking expert Zuckuss from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes BackTM. Created exclusively for event sales, 4-LOM and Zuckuss are the last bounty hunters depicted in the film to become Keepsake Ornaments. Limited run of 1,000 sets ($35 per set).
  • A Human Hero: This original sculpture is inspired by the 1986 comic-book masterpiece “The Dark Knight Returns.” This gritty adventure helped to establish the more realistic and complex portrayal of the Dark Knight in modern media. Limited run of 875 Keepsake Ornaments ($25 each).
  • Cylon Centurion: In the classic 1978 TV series Battlestar GalacticaTM, Cylon Centurions relentlessly pursue the “ragtag” survivors of the twelve colonies of humanity across the reaches of space with a single goal: destroy all humanoids. This gold-painted variant of last year’s popular ornament is Hallmark’s first Comic-Con exclusive to feature sound. Limited run of 750 Keepsake Ornaments ($25 each).

“We’re excited to return to Comic-Con and to reward our passionate fans with exclusive Keepsake Ornaments and first-looks at new products,” said Beth Dorr, associate merchandise manager for Keepsake Ornaments. “This year, we’re bringing back fan-favorite activities, such as daily pin giveaways, and offering new activities, including autograph sessions with a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament artist.

Visitors to Hallmark’s booth in the Lucasfilm Pavilion will be able to meet and receive free autographs from Robert Chad, one of the Hallmark artists behind the 4-LOM and Zuckuss Keepsake Ornaments.

Also making a return appearance are fan favorites hoops&yoyo. Creator Bob Holt will be in the booth with the hoops&yoyo characters, Thursday, July 12 (4-6 p.m.); Friday, July 13 (1-3 p.m.); and Saturday, July 14 (1-3 p.m.).

Attendees also can view many of the new 2012 Keepsake Ornaments, including Edward and Bella’s Wedding and The Amazing SpidermanTM, as well as get a sneak peek of what’s to come in 2013. A series of collectible buttons featuring five Keepsake Ornaments also will be available for fan pick-up. The series features five designs, with a limited quantity of one design given away each day of Comic-Con.

Fans not in attendance still can be a part of Hallmark’s Comic-Con action. Hallmark will give away one set of Comic-Con-exclusive Keepsake Ornaments on Twitter before the convention begins. Additional product giveaways will be hosted before and during the convention. Follow @HallmarkPR, #ComicCon and #SDCC for more information.

Comic-Con International Decides Not To Offer On-Site Pre-Registration for SDCC 2013

Comic Con International sent a email/survey to current badge holders to try to get input from attendees regarding purchasing passes for 2013. There will NOT be any Attendee Pre-Registration for Comic-Con 2013 at the convention, as was done last year. CCI is considering opening online pre-registration for current (2012) attendees after Comic-Con 2012 is over with a possibility of also restricting the number of badges you will be able to purchase. There will be more complaints about this process as well since those that were not able to purchase passes will feel left out of this ability to give their own input. Unfair? Yes. It does not seem that this was well thought out. Is there room for improvement? Yes. Will your input be considered? Perhaps.

The only good news from all of this is that everyone can enjoy the rest of the convention without waiting in a line to purchase passes. So, it would seem the other lines at Comic-Con will be just that much longer though. With a crowd that seems to get larger every year, being able to attend the convention does not rely solely on your personal availability and/or the size of your bank account. It just relies on shear luck at this point. Any comments are welcome and GOOD LUCK to everyone!

Email/Survey

Dear <Attendee>,

As a Comic-Con 2012 registered attendee you are receiving this email. We hope you will agree to take a quick survey (8 questions) that could help us
better serve you in terms of future registration. Below is a link to the survey
which will be conducted on our vendor’s website at SurveyGizmo. The survey will
be open until midnight Friday, May 25, 2012 Pacific Time (PT).

<link removed>

Please do NOT forward this link. If you do, other people will overwrite your data. Thank you in advance for your anticipated help and for being an active part of Comic-Con International.

This message was sent by Comic-Con International, San Diego, CA 92112-8458.

You are receiving this email because you have signed up for a Comic-Con Member ID.

Survey

In an effort to better accommodate and understand the needs of our attendees Comic-Con has, from time to time, conducted audience feedback surveys. In the past, this has been done onsite on a one-on-one basis. The new Comic-Con Member ID system now allows us to conduct these surveys online and potentially use a wider test audience.

Receiving your input will better assist us in trying to find the best way to face the challenges of having a popular show for which there are more people who want to attend than we have badges to accommodate. By taking part in this survey you will become an active partner in helping Comic-Con meet the needs of our attendees and help to provide a better experience for all.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This survey is being distributed only to current 2012 badge holders.

Because of the sheer number of people who wanted to register at the show for the following year, we had to move 2012 pre-registration off-site to accommodate the lines of people and allow space for additional registration equipment.

Our plan in 2011, to have the pre-registration area open only until 11:00am each day or until the allotment of badges had been sold, was an effort to allow people to enjoy the show and not have to spend the entire day in line for badges. Unfortunately, even with these changes and a larger facility we could not accommodate every attendee who wanted to purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2012, and we did not avoid having a long line of people waiting to purchase those badges.

Comic-Con has decided to not offer on-site pre-registration for the 2013 show.

Instead, we plan to offer those who attend Comic-Con 2012 a special opportunity to purchase a 2013 badge after Comic-Con.

Answering the questions below will help us find the best solution to facilitate this process. Thank you for your cooperation and your assistance and for being an active part of Comic-Con International.

Questions

  1. I like the idea of having some type of pre-registration sale limited only to people who attended in 2012.
  2. I like the idea of a Traditional Online Sale for Comic-Con 2013 badges, where only those people with a 2012 badge could participate.Traditional Online Sale – the general online sale which has been used for the bulk of the badge sales in past few years.
  3. I like the idea of a Limited Drawing for Comic-Con 2013 badges, where only those with a 2012 badge could participate.
  4. What number of total Comic-Con 2013 badges should we allocate for pre-registration to 2012 badge holders?I think those with a Comic-Con 2012 badge should be allowed to purchase badges for friends and family who ALSO attended Comic-Con in 2012.
  5. How many people should they be allowed to buy badges for (other than their own badge)
  6. I think those with a Comic-Con 2012 badge should be allowed to purchase badges for friends and family who DID NOT attend Comic-Con in 2012
  7. Did you pre-register for a Comic-Con 2012 badge at the 2011 show?
  8. Have you pre-registered on-site in any year before 2011?

Press Registration is OPEN for Comic-Con 2012!

Comic-Con 2012 Online Press Registration opens today (04/24/12) for all returning and first-time applicants. It opened a little later than they expected probably because of WonderCon being in a different venue, etc. Remember, there is no on-site registration so you must submit your online application before May 25, 2012! Your verification materials form and materials need to be postmarked by May 29, 2012. Also remember that the issuance of a Press badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International.

Refer to the Press Checklist, Press Verification Form & Information Sheet, and the official website for more information.

Please e-mail pressreg@comic-con.org for any questions; to assist you in the most effective way, please always state your Comic-Con Member ID when in contact with the Comic-Con International (CCI) Press Registration department.

Science and STAR TREK Join Forces with Feature Length Roddenberry Documentary TREK NATION

With the 2011 Comic-Con International in San Diego as the backdrop, SCIENCE today announced its partnership with science fiction royalty, Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, and Roddenberry Entertainment on the upcoming the feature-length special, TREK NATION, scheduled to air in fourth quarter 2011. TREK NATION explores the popularity and appeal of Star Trek through the man who created it all – the late Gene Roddenberry.

Rod will take SCIENCE audiences along with him as he explores his father’s work and the impact of his legacy that still resonates today. Through interviews with his most devoted fans, including George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Stan Lee and many others, TREK NATION is the story of a son trying to learn more about his father by unraveling the intricacies of Star Trek.

The film demonstrates how Gene’s work not only captivated legions of fans across the globe, but also generated a movement which has influenced entertainment, politics, space travel, social morality and much more. Fostering a timeless understanding of the human condition and capturing man’s constant search for a better world defines everything that is TREK NATION.

“This project is very personal for me, as it literally documents my education on Star Trek, my father, and the Roddenberry legacy. Because of that, I can’t tell you how happy we are to have found a network that shares our vision for it,” said Rod Roddenberry “TREK NATION strikes a strong balance between exploring a science fiction phenomenon and relating a very universal story between a son and his father. I have every confidence that Star Trek fans and non-Star Trek fans alike are going to enjoy the film.”

“Star Trek isn’t just a television show; it is a global phenomenon, a way of life, which has shaped so many facets of how we define our world today,” said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president of SCIENCE. “We are honored to carry on the Roddenberry mission by continuing his legacy with TREK NATION.”

TREK NATION is produced for SCIENCE by Roddenberry Entertainment. Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry is an executive producer and Trevor Roth is a producer for Roddenberry Entertainment. Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production and executive producer for SCIENCE. New Animal Productions producer is Nicole Rittenmeyer and Scott Colthorp produces for Atmosphere Pictures.
