-IMAX is providing pedicabs that are absolutely FREE to Comic-Con badge holders to anywhere within the Gaslamp District. They'll also have street teams handing out free swag.


Swagmagnet, go here for all your Swag finding needs.

Really helped me plan for the Adventure Time Conquest, heads up one place has to visited outside the ShiftyLook Arcade at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. Guess whose there D3 with some TBA announced games. D3 happens to be the publisher of the brand new Adventure Time game "Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW!" and Regular Show: Mordecai & Rigby In 8-bit Land.

Update: Yup, I was dead on. The press release just hit a few hours after I posted on D3. Here it is

"Visit D3Publisher at the ShiftyLook Freeplay Arcade at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter and Be One of the First to Play New Video Games Based on Adventure Time, Regular Show and Ben 10 Omniverse 

D3Publisher (D3P) and Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) today announced that Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW, Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-bit Land, and Ben 10 Omniverse 2 will be showcased at the ShiftyLook Freeplay Arcade located at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter (401 K Street, San Diego, CA). The event takes place during Comic-Con International show hours on July 18th – July 21st

Visitors to the D3Publisher tent on the terrace at the ShiftyLook Freeplay Arcade will be treated to hands-on demos with all three games and be one of the first to play the hottest upcoming video games for the fall. Additionally, fans participating in this year’s Adventure Time ConQuest can stop by the D3Publisher tent at the event to redeem their reward. 

In celebration of the upcoming video game launch for Regular Show, series creator JG Quintel will make a special appearance at 10:00 a.m. (PST) on Saturday, July 20th for an autograph session on the ShiftyLook stage. "
So it looks like you get your reward when you hit the arcade, what could it be?

If I can talk to Pen Ward during the con I will ask if he's naming the games to be as hard as possible to shorten.

Here's Swagmagnet's breakdown of the new AdventureTime Conquest with only something related to Wizards as the prize. Wizards Only Fools

[UPDATE] - We’ve also now gotten confirmation that Cartoon Network will also be holding an Adventure Time “ConQuest” scavenger hunt – but we’re not sure if this is tied into the buttons or a separate event. Questers will be required to visit 14 different booths (as well as one location in the Gaslamp Quarter, which along with the Hallmark booth will probably be the toughest parts of this quest, due to crowds), with ”incentives, premiums and rebates” being given at different booths along the way, and questers managing to complete the entire hunt will receive a special “limited edition keepsake” (while supplies last) – though we don’t know exactly WHAT that is yet! The 14 booths you’ll be required to visit (including Cartoon Network’s own booth #3735) are:

  • Abrams booth #1216
  • Boom! Studios / KaBOOM! booth #2235
  • Entertainment Earth booth #2343 (you’ll meet 2 of the requirements at this booth, as Jazwares shares space at this same booth)
  • Funko booth #5343
  • Hallmark booth #2913H
  • Huckleberry booth #3449
  • Mimoco booth #5338 AND/OR #2913M (both may be required)
  • Penguin Group booth #1028
  • Poketo booth #5050
  • Rubie’s Costume Company booth #3649
  • USAopoly booth #721
  • WeLoveFine booth #5647
  • And finally, you’ll be required to visit the ShiftyLook Freeplay Arcade at the Hilton Gaslamp hotel as well.10:00am-7:00pm
Nice tip on the pirate ship in port too.

One of the hottest swag items at the con may not be on the floor at all… but rather, from the high seas behind the convention center! UbiSoft will be promoting Assassin’s Creed IV in style… with a real, full-size pirate ship! Fans who visit the ship – which will only be open on Friday and Saturday – will be able to receive inflatable cutlass swordsAssassin’s Creed art booklets from Titan, prizes and more! Better yet, legendary artist Todd McFarlane will be signing a limited-edition Assassin’s Creed poster giveaway from 4pm-7pm on Friday!
