As convention season draws to a close, there’s still time for one last hurrah in the Big Apple! New York ComicCon will be here in two weeks’ time, and TORn will be there with bells on. (Maybe literally – you’ll have to come and see us to find out…)
If you’re coming to the convention, you can find us at Booth 3040, where we’ll have t-shirts, buttons, lanyards and more for sale, as well as lots of cool giveaways and fun stuff. We’ll also be giving a panel on Saturday night, 9pm, in room 1A21: ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – An Unofficial Look’. Find out inside scoop on the third and final film – be ready for spoilers!
Most importantly, we are of course throwing a PARTY! Ringers Take Manhattan again! This year, excitingly, our co-hosts and sponsors for the party are Weta, who will be attending the convention for the first time! (You can find them at booth 722, and check out their panel ‘Weta: Creating Conceptual Art for Film’, Saturday 11am in 1A10.)
You don’t have to be coming to New York ComicCon itself to come along to our party – all you have to do is buy a ticket here! In return for which, you get a private party (with TORn staff, folks from Weta, fellow fans and maybe even some special guests…), with food, music, goody bags and some great giveaways. Your ticket price includes your first drink, the buffet, goody bag and two raffle tickets – and with Weta’s generous support, we’re able to bring you all this for a reduced price this year, of only $25/ticket. However – numbers are limited to this exclusive event, so don’t delay – buy your tickets now! Click here to purchase.
Other cool happenings at New York ComicCon include a panel with Howard Shore and Doug Adams – ‘Lord of the Rings: The Music of Middle-earth’, Thursday 4pm in 1A18. Guests at the convention include Karl Urban and Manu Bennett.
As ever, we have a host of folks supporting us to make it possible for us to be at New York ComicCon. Many thanks to them all:
WallSauce.com – who make amazing Lord of the Rings and Hobbit wall murals, and who are donating one for a special giveaway at the booth.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – Tolkien publishers and donors of some great items for the party goody bags.
The Tolkien Shop – only brick and mortar shop in the world entirely dedicated to J R R Tolkien!

And of course, special thanks to Weta – party co-hosts!
Hope to see you in New York! Buy your party tickets here!
