    Power-Con 2013: Sept. 14-15 in Torrance, CA - w/ 2012 Video Promo and Recap!

    UPDATED: Check out the 2012 Video Recap and Promo by Daniel "Castle Grayskullman" Benedict. Find out why YOU should be at Power-Con 2013!



    After two successful years, the POWER-CON will return September 14th and 15th, 2013 to the Torrance Marriott South Bay, in Torrance, California. Not only will Power-Con still encompass the worlds of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, She-Ra: Princess of Power, and the ThunderCats, but it will now be raising some shell by including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the celebration!

    The lean, mean, and green fighting machines will be given the same attention and love He-Man, She-Ra, and the ThunderCats have received during Power-Con’s first two outings. As the fans who have attended previously will attest, this is a convention that caters directly to the fans by bringing in the top talent involved with the properties you love, extensive programming and panels during the entire weekend, vendors that have the collector in mind, and even an opportunity to dine with the creators and thespians who helped bring these beloved properties to life.

    Hotel reservation information is coming soon which will include a discounted room rate for Power-Con attendees. Make sure to keep an eye out for this announcement as our hotel block sold out quickly last year before the show. With the inclusion of the Turtles, we expect an even faster sell-out.

    Guest announcements and programming details will be continuously released throughout the upcoming year. Please bookmark our official convention website at: http://www.thepower-con.com/ , friend us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ThePowerCon, and follow us on Twitter @ThePowerCon.

    We look forward to seeing all the fans help bring the power, honor, thunder, and cowabunga to 2013 this September!

    Already plan on going? RSVP on Facebook!

    Hopefully it will travel all over and not just to the coasts.


    Since I didn't go on vacation this year, my vacation fund for next year will be twice as much. I'm really going to try and go in 2013. September is a great month for me.

    I understand your feeling since I'm in the middle, but it is MUCH easier and MUCH cheaper for them to get guests and artists to come to these conventions when it is held closer to where those people actually live.

    I understand that it is cheaper...wish it was more for regional fans like me though.

    Well I would've gone if it was in NY as the ad on the Power Con Cereal Geek said, but that's just too far away for me. Maybe if the east coast ever gets some love (yeah, right)....

    I hear you too. I'd gladly go to one on NYC. California, well, I just can't justify that...

    Please try to get more vendors with vintage figures if you can, especially MOC or rare items. I was really hoping to plug some holes in my collection last year but came away empty handed, despite having an absolute blast!

    Should be soon. We're working out some details for Advanced Ticket incentives. I may have to announce blind on that, though, and do a pick-up later with the announcement of incentive items later.

    BTW, Slave2Evil_Lyn, who was that handsome guy talking to me in the background at the Registration counter while Karla is being interviewed? He looks familiar.

    Awww man... I missed the announcement that Michael Reaves is going to be there. I'm a huge fan of his Star Wars novels (sorry - not MOTU related) and would love to meet him and get him to sign a book or two. Why oh why can't I go this time? (Starts trying desperately to reshuffle his schedule and finances...)
    Photog is here! thank you, Mattel!

    Now how about some mini-comics love (like Lodar, Geldor, Dakon......)? And Mermista?
