Power-Con is going to be HUGE this year! The Torrance Mariott where the show is being held has officially sold out of rooms for the weekend! If you haven’t booked yet, don’t fret! There are other hotels available! Click through for more information on how to book a hotel for this can’t-miss convention for fans of TMNT, ThunderCats, He-Man, and She-Ra!
Check out the Power-Con video promo and recap for 2012 by Daniel Benedict! See some of what you missed and find out why Power-Con should be one of your 2013 destinations. Enjoy a taste of what Power-Con delivers for He-Man, She-Ra and ThunderCats and get an idea of what to expect for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when it gets the Power-Con treatment at this year’s event!
Power-Con already has the power of Grayskull and the power of the Eye of Thundera… Now it has Turtle Power! Power-Con’s next show will expand to give fans of TMNT the same treatment Power-Con has given to He-Man, She-Ra and ThunderCats!
“It was only a matter of time before this happened,” said Val Staples, Power-Con Event Director. “Our 2012 year exceeded expectations and we had already been talking for over a year of how we would expand the show. Given how many of us are big TMNT fans, adding the Conabunga element to Power-Con was perfect.”
Power-Con / ThunderCon 2012 is rapidly approaching, and the official programming schedule for Saturday has just been posted! There are a lot of fantastic things to see at the show, including several featuring yours truly!
First up, I’ll be moderating the Legends of Toy Design panel, featuring an amazing cast of talented panelists including Martin Arriola, Mark DiCamillo, Eric Scot Frydler, Eric Treadaway, Jim Preziosi, and Eddy Mosqueda as they discuss the process of creating action figures for Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power, 200x, New Adventures, and Classics!
Then, don’t miss my screening of a new episode of Power & Honor: The World of MOTU Toys! Immediately following the video screening will be the Roast Gooble Dinner / MastersCast Panel which will be recorded as a live podcast!
Plus, I’ll be walking around doing plenty of filming all day long, so definitely come up and say “Hi” if you’re there! I may even put you on camera!
