POWER-CON! Programming Schedule & guest appearances, ticket & exhibitor sales & more!
Power-Con*, the first annual MOTU and POP fan convention in the US, is coming!
Tentatively scheduled for fall of this year, Power-Con is working with He-Man.org to help provide the best fan experience possible.
Power-Con wants to know what you'd like to see at a MOTU and POP fan convention!
Please post your feedback in this thread.
We'll be posting more information as it develops!
*This convention is not sponsored by, or affiliated with Mattel, Inc. or Classic Media, Inc.
As far as location, I can tell you now it will most likely be NY or CA. Those states have the highest concentration of fans who visit this site, as well as the highest concentration of talent involved in MOTU and POP both past and present, so please don't suggest locations. Any posts doing so will be edited or deleted.
I'll let you know when I hear more and can post the info.
As far as exclusives, I wouldn't count on any toy exclusives.
Though nothing is being ruled out as this stage.
Just know that this is a fan convention, that will no doubt start out modest in size, with a focus on fans, special guests and vendors,
just like with other fan conventions in the past (Bot-Con, My Little Pony Fair, Jem Con, etc)
Please suggest things you'd like to see at the con itself. That's what the Power-Con team would love to hear about. Thanks!
