All panels are being hosted through Zoom Webinar.
If you have an account that you have already created through Zoom, that’s great! You can sign in to see the panels at their scheduled times using the links we post tomorrow (Friday, August 7th).
But if you have NOT registered on Zoom, that’s no problem! Approximately 15 minutes before a panel begins, click on that panel’s link. All you need to sign in is enter your name and your e-mail address. That’s it!
You have multiple ways you can view each panel, including through the Zoom app on your smart device, the browser on your desktop or laptop computer, or with the Zoom app on your desktop or laptop computer. Speaking of which, you will be prompted at one point to download and install the Zoom app after you visit the panel link. We highly suggest using the Zoom app on your desktop or laptop. That method tends to be the most reliable.
You do not need a webcam or a microphone. You’ll be interacting with panelists in the Chat where you can type to leave comments, and in the Q&A at the end of the panel where you can type questions for the panelists. IMPORTANT: For any comments or questions, keep them civil and polite. Anyone who fails to honor this will be removed from the panel room and will not be allowed to return. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!
Each panel will have a Q&A session at the end where you get a chance to ask the panelists your questions. And while we cannot guarantee yours question will be selected, you definitely don’t want to miss the chance to interact with the panelists.
Also, each panel offers a chance to win some awesome items! To be entered, all you need to do is watch the majority of that panel. It’s that simple! As long as you registered to watch the panel with a valid name and e-mail address, you will be automatically entered in a raffle where random winners will be selected next week.
If you qualify as a raffle entrant, then you agree to honor our Terms of the Raffles found below.
TERMS OF THE RAFFLES: each panel has a raffle to win free items. In order to be eligible to win, you have to stay for the majority of the panel, and you have to enter a valid e-mail address. Failure to do either of these will automatically disqualify you from being included in the raffle. The random drawings will take place next week. Power-Con will then contact the winners by e-mail. Winners have until Monday, August 24th to reply with any information requested in order to claim their prize. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the prize and no new winner will be selected. While we will make an effort to get your prize to you as quickly as possible, please note that prizes have no specified ship date and will be shipped when product is available. In the case of some products, like the Dark Horse toy guide for example, these will not be available to ship until some time in 2021. Also, the prizes are free. In addition, we will ship these to the winner at no additional cost. But for fans outside of the USA, we are not responsible for any customs or VAT fees issued by your country. Any fees placed on prices are the sole responsibility of the raffle prize recipient. Prizes must be received as-is. Damaged product, or product that shows as delivered but is claimed to be lost by the recipient, will not be replaced. Winners will not be announced to the public, and all decisions are final.
GRAYSKULL TREASURE ROOM
Seeing new reveals on the show floor of Power-Con is part of the convention experience. So since we can’t do it in person for 2020, Mattel and Power-Con are doing some of it online!
The Grayskull Treasure Room is a 3D room where the user is standing in the middle and can turn 360 degrees around the room. In this room you will find various things you can click on. Some reveal images and slideshows, some reveals videos, and one is a contractual agreement that, when clicked on, automatically signs your entire collection over to Power-Con!
Okay, the last one isn’t real. But we hope the others offer you a fun way to see some of the awesome Masters of the Universe product from Mattel and some of its licensees.
The Grayskull Treasure Room will go live at 12:00pm Pacific Time, Saturday, August 8th!
IMPORTANT: we ask that you do NOT share anything you find in the room! We know the temptation is there. But having fans come themselves to discover the treasures in the room is extremely important! If a huge number of fans come check out the Grayskull Treasure Room, then it is more likely we will be able to build on this for 2021! That means more features, and maybe even things like prizes or links to special items you can only find in the treasure room to add to your collection.
So if you like what you see, then please share the Power-Con website link online and encourage other He-Man and She-Ra fans to come search through Grayskull themselves to uncover its secrets!
When it goes live, navigating the room is easy. All you do is press and hold on your screen on smart devices, or click and hold with your mouse on desktops and laptops, and you will move around the room depending on where you clicked. If you see something that looks interesting, then click on it! It might reveal a hidden secret.
1. We found the treasure room does not work well on Safari on iOS devices. If you use a iOS device, please use Chrome instead, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
2. The treasure room might operate slowly on older operating systems. Our apologies if this is the case for you.
3. If you are on a smart device and you visit the room in vertical (portrait) orientation, please do not turn your device to horizontal (landscape) orientation. If you do, you will need to refresh the room in order to re-calibrate the center axis on the screen.
4. Even though there is a load screen with a logo, the room may still take a bit longer to load on some devices. Therefore, we recommend letting the room load for approximately 60 seconds before you begin to explore.
This is a new experience for us. We are learning from it, and hope to improve and build on it for 2021. That includes ironing out any glitches found along the way. We greatly appreciate your patience and support! And we hope you enjoy what we have to offer online for Power-Con 2020.
