Yes, saw this note but no other information out since! Watching SDCC news like a hawk... feels like a slow day today though!

Wonder who we should track to follow for updates on this.  HBO? Or a Watchmen official twitter or something maybe?

"While there won’t be a panel for the upcoming Watchmen, the series will have some sort of “in-world opportunity” in the Gaslamp, which could mean it’s the new HBO offsite for this year, or it could mean street teams"

I think you are on to something.  Rorschach masks and yellow police force masks.... Suppose it would be a fair replacement for Sharknado - but also wondering if we will get a Zombie Tidal Wave thing.  Weren't they casting for zombies types a while back - hard to tell if it was Walking Dead or something else.  Airdate for Zombie Tidal wave is in August after SDCC and it is a SYFY property.

Street teams are usually fairly meh.  There's been a few interesting ones, but it's usually just people walking around giving away stuff.  Who knows, though.  HBO is pretty awesome so if that's what it is, could be cool.  Hoping for a more interactive activation though.

HBO could give out these masks for the activation.

I mean, if they can give away so many cowboy hats for Westworld (still jealous I did not get one) then sack masks are a possibility.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

I did this today.  I was walking by and the line was short so I thought that HBO as good offsites.  I describe it like this, it was a 1.5 hour wait to stand in a pay toilet for a minute.

This is a good explanation. The pins are ok but the stanchions are a good mark of how long you have to wait (each aisle is about half an hour each). If there's no one there, it's pretty good but it's not worth the wait, takes forever to get through the line, and VIPs stop by and jump line a lot. Also supposedly they shut down promptly at 8, no matter how many people are in line.

The above descriptions are correct. The line is super slow. I thought it was cool and I like the pins.

I give them respect for this, they were probably the last offsite opened today.  They were still letting people into line at 6pm so they may still be processing people right now.  They told me they would be there until the last person is through.

That was cool. I noticed they were open late last night with people still in line. Most other places were closed today or capped by 2pm.

Yeah we did it after the show closed sunday.  Was about an hour wait.  Event was blah, but happy for pins!
