SDCC 2017: Amazon’s The Tick to takeover the Con

Amazon is going big with The Tick at Comic Con. No, like BIG. No, no; I mean like “a twenty-foot tall animatronic Tick head” big.


Have you seen the Amazon pilot for The Tick? It wasn’t half-bad, if you missed it, and it was good enough for the new studio to throw its weight behind it. Bottom line – The Tick is on the way to series and is shooting now. So, of course, you know it’ll be a presence at Comic Con later this month.

Maybe “presence” is putting it lightly though. You know, with the twenty foot head and all. Check it out:

“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, TheTick 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.
