Heroes at Comic Con ’08 Update, Hiro and Sylar Action Figures

We’ve been hearing a lot of noise about Tim Kring bringing the Heroes Season 3 premiere to the 2008 Comic Con to show the fans, but there have been contradictory news. For instance, we’ve already told you that Heroes will only have an hour-long panel, along with pretty much every other show at the Con, so how could Kring possibly show all, or even any, of the Season 3 premiere in that space, and still take questions for the usual Q&A sessions? To answer those questions, I recently got an email from Isa, who sends this in an attempt to clarify what will be taking place at the Heroes panel at Comic Con 2008:

My name is Isa. I’ve been in semi-regular contact with one of the Heroes writers since the writer’s strike, and have been asking taking fandom questions and concerns to him, which he has been answering. I know there’s been some confusion regarding whether they are going to show the S3 premiere in its entirety at ComiCon, so I asked him to clarify that. Here’s his response (there’s also a clarification of what’s going to happen the night of the actual premiere):

“Hey Isa,
In regards to your questions, as far as I’ve heard the plan was always to have a one hour panel at Comicon and to show a teaser reel with footage from the first batch of season 3 episodes. There was some speculation at one point that they’d show the premiere episode, but I don’t recall that decision ever being made. As for the 3 hour premiere in September, the plan has always been to air a one hour special at 8pm, and then to air two back to back episodes of Heroes from 9pm to 11pm. I just checked on that yesterday and was informed this would still be happening. But again I have to restate that things can always change in this crazy world!”

The writer in question, by the way, is Christopher Zatta.

Pretty much what we had expected and predicted — Season 3 episodes that were already shot will be shown in clip form at the Con, and not the actual premiere.

Thanks, Isa!

Meanwhile, seat42f has these Hiro and Sylar action figures available exclusively for the Con. The Hiro ones are bobbleheads, and the Sylar ones, well, he’s ndulging in his more artistic side, I guess. A very bloody side, it would appear.
