Amazon Prime Video will have a significant presence at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, led by The Tick and also featuring Danger & Eggs and Niko and the Sword of Light.
While all three shows will have panels, Amazon will provide a unique experience in The Tick Takeover – where fans can immerse themselves in the world of The Tick.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 takes place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, during the weekend of July 19 – July 23.
Announcing Amazon Prime Video’s lineup for Comic-Con International in San Diego, featuring the Amazon Original Series The Tick and kids series Danger & Eggs and Niko and the Sword of Light.
In addition to cast and creator panels, autograph signings and sneak peeks at all three series (complete schedule below), Amazon is creating an immersive Tick experience for Con attendees.
“Citizens” will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in world of The Tick at Amazon Prime Video’s Tick Takeover, a movie set level design experience positioned directly across from the San Diego Convention Center on MLK Promenade (on the corner of 1st and J streets). With fully built out buildings from “The City,” a twenty-foot tall animatronic Tick head, and “Easter eggs” harkening back to the show, The Tick Takeover is poised to give fans the journey of a lifetime. Additional details include a unique queueing experience, challenge-based scavenger hunt and the Amazon Prime Member Lounge.
In addition to the activation, Con attendees will be able to call upon the #TeamTick street team for help when they are in a bind. Need help with that selfie? Have a painful blister? Have no fear… Team Tick is here! In true Tick form, Team Tick will be taking to the streets of San Diego helping the helpless and defending the defenseless. Citizens seeking assistance from the street team need only flag down a member of Team Tick, adorned with blue antenna, to get help.
