    Pixel Dan is back with another video! This time he gives info on the Power-Con exclusives pre-order, which ends TOMORROW, May 13th. Check it out!



    ---------------------
    Say hello to the third of three Power-Con 2018 toy exclusive reveals: Uncle Montork & Dree Elle from the Club Grayskull (Filmation) series!

    Sculpted by the Four Horsemen and produced by Super7, Uncle Montork & Dree Elle go up for pre-order (along with ticket pre-sales) on Saturday, April 7th at 9:00am Pacific / 12:00pm Eastern time!

    The pre-orders for the toy exclusives will run until Sunday, May 13th. Ticket sales to the show will continue after that date. That gives everyone approximately one month to place their toy exclusive pre-orders. In order to move into production, we can't extend the end date. All pre-orders are a pre-payment, in full like prior Power-Con events.

    The three toy exclusives will all be featured separately on the standard Club Grayskull packaging. You can purchase individual figure releases for $50.00 each. But we will also offer a set of all three for $135.00 ($45.00 each); a 10% discount for the set of all three. We will also have one German distributor available for fans who are interested. Ordering through them will save money for German fans, and should also save money for most western European fans as well.

    We'll have more info as the pre-sale date draws closer! And thank you for your support of Power-Con!

    Oh, that's some great news!
    It sounds obvious that the selection of figures shall, once again, be
    definitely oriented.

    Fingers crossed for surprises as exciting than all we've had so far.

    Great to hear it return for another year! It's on my husband's birthday this year, so while we'll still be going (I'm the He-Fan, he just goes for me, but he still has fun), I worry about what I will have to endure in return .

    Just checked, and flights are 60% more expensive in August than September from Ireland, so will have to see how budgeting is for next year! We're also booking Orlando for the family, so that's an easy $12k gone. So Power-Con will be toward the bottom of the priority list (not for me - for my wife, lol).

    Hopefully can make it. Had an AMAZING time this year.

    How early does the hotel room block start? I kind of want to book it as an early Christmas gift to myself

    Awesome!!


    I don't think the exclusives will be shown until Toy Fair. But that's Super7's call. I do know ticket sales will happen very soon after the exclusives are revealed.

    But up first is hotel reservations. That will happen this month. We'll send out a notice on the site, social media, and our mailing list about dates and times.
    Hope to see you at Power-Con 2020!

    When can we expect the first guests to be announced? Around the time of the hotel reservations or much later?

    Probably like last year: after the hotel reservations and closer to ticket sale time.

    Like last year, will you publish clues ( like pictures, terms, ... ) for us to try to find, before the official announcement will be made ?

    I dunno. Maybe. I thought that was a lot of fun. But then there were people elsewhere online being jerks about it. People like that make me not want to do fun teasers. Or I might just start calling people out by name who do that... start specifically pointing to the people who ruin it for the rest of us.

    I hope you don't stop the clues. You are the only one doing this....sometimes Neca does a little but you do it a little bit at a time....that keeps fans engaged and I think builds buzz for the figures and the show.....despite a few vocal idiots....I see everyone enjoying it. This takes me back to the McFarlane movie maniacs days.

    By the way liked you on the Netflix show. My wife asked is that the guy that owns that he man site you are on all day? I said yes,and I have spoken to him a few times on the site. She thought that was awesome...she said,you actually talk to him...he talks to the fans....so looks like we need autographs now.��

    Something to bring a little excitement and help balance out the negative reactions to wave one would be great right now.
