MST3k Panel at Comic-Con!
« on: May 29, 2008, 09:41:46 PM »
If you're on the Shout! Factory newsletter, like I am, then you may have received this tiny little tidbit / nugget of info:

MST3K Panel At Comic-Con '08
For the first time ever...EVER, the forces behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 are appearing at San Diego's Comic-Con. Mark your day planners for July 25 at 7:15 p.m. Moderated by the very funny Patton Oswalt, this will be one event you don't want to miss.

So yeah. That's the "big announcement" I kept alluding to these last few weeks. We'll be there along with Mike and the guys. See you there!

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Upon closer inspection, this is the same date that our RiffTrax Live event is supposed to take place. I'm guessing it's a typo or some other kind of mistake. I'll let you know what happens.

Will it be filmed? Not only because I won't be able to attend, but because I have a feeling that it would make an awesome DVD extra.... ;)

Thanks for catching that and keeping us updated! BTW, tickets for the Live shows go on sale at 10 this morning.

My Wife and I are going to comicCon for the first time this year! All of this MST3K news is awesome!
Any idea if the cast will be signing autographs?!

Good news, everyone!

Got an email from Shout Factory: "Sorry about that. The panel is on Friday. We'll get the newsletter fixed."

So yeah. Here's a recap for Riffaholics and MSTies:

Thursday: Mike, Kevin and BIll signing autographs.
Friday: MST3k 20th reunion panel, hosted by Patton Oswalt.
Saturday: RiffTrax Live: Plan 9 From Outer Space
Sunday: RiffTrax Unofficial Meet-up at Elephant & Castle

(Not to mention we'll have our own booth at the Con this year, where we'll be selling and giving away some stuff.)

This year I think we should call it "Riff-Con".

Who's on the panel?

Not exactly sure, but I'd suffice it to say at the very least, "The entire cast of MST3k." Yes, Mike AND Joel. And Frank, Trace, Kevin, Bill, Josh and Mary Jo.

From what I gather.
