Power-Con 2017 SuperShuttle Discount

Power-Con has partnered with SuperShuttle to give convention goers a 10% discount on the round-trip fair for shared SuperShuttle vans and $5.00 off one-way with the ExecuCar service from the Los Angeles Airport to your hotel. SuperShuttle has also improved their shared-van wait time after fan feedback. Current wait times at the airport are now only between 15 and 30 minutes!

This discount is only good for people flying into the Los Angeles Airport (LAX) and we recommend you book your SuperShuttle after purchasing your airfare to Power-Con.

Click here to book now with the discount!

Directions on how to book:

After visiting the link, you click on “From Airport.”
In the blank that says “Select Airport” type LAX. Then select “Los Angeles Airport (LAX)”
Then, for “Include a return trip?”, click to change that to “Yes.”
Be sure to select the box for Wheelchair Lift/Ramp if one is required.
If the discount code wasn’t entered automatically, you can enter the code manually.

The discount code is POWER
Then select Continue.

On the next screen, click in the blank for “Drop Off Location” and type torrance marriott. Then select “Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach, Fashion Way, Torance, CA, United States.”
Change the number of passengers to fit your travel needs.
Make sure the Discount Code still says POWER. If not, enter it manually.
Be sure to select the box for Wheelchair Lift/Ramp if one is required, and if it is not checked from the previous screen.
Then select Continue.

On the next screen, select your ride preference. Most people select the “SuperShuttle Shared-Ride”, which is a van shared with other passengers, and is the cheapest method.

On the next screen for Arrival Flight Info, pick your flight Trip Type (domestic or international),
then in the next blank, select the airport arrival date and time based on details from your previously purchased airfare.
Next, pick the airline via which you are flying to LAX.
The following blank for your Flight Information is optional. BUT we recommend putting your Flight # information into that field, as it automatically alerts SuperShuttle to a delay in your air travel, if one should happen, and helps them reschedule your ride to the hotel.
Then select Continue.

On the next screen, repeat the same steps for your Departure Flight Info.
You will notice that SuperShuttle tends to give you a pickup time at the hotel approximately 3 hours prior to your flight. They won’t let you pick a time closer to your flight, but you CAN pick an even earlier pickup from the hotel if you desire more time for travel to the airport, and more time at the airport ticketing and terminal.
Then select Continue.

On the next screen, please enter your Passenger / Payment Info.
From this point forward, the rest of the steps should be self-explanatory. And, when you are done with your reservation, SuperShuttle will e-mail you your transportation itinerary.
We look forward to seeing you at Power-Con!

Power-Con 2017 program guide cover in-the-making

The cover to the 2017 Power-Con program guide is under way! This year it is being painted by SiMo Sol’s Atelier.

This cover is hand-painted on canvas and will take SiMo approximately 100 hours to create. He has already spent around 20 hours and the background is already taking shape on what will be an iconic image!

SiMo plans to show an update on his progress approximately twice a month, so you get to see this amazing cover unfold before your eyes. Please keep checking back for updates and we hope to see you at Power-Con 2017 in Torrance, California this September 9th and 10th!

Power-Con 2017 Updates!

TICKET SALES

We are working with our event management company to secure online ticket sales. Our new plan is to have ticket packages available for purchase in early to mid-March 2017. The delay is due to waiting on the factory quotes for the Power-Con Masters of the Universe action figure exclusives as they will be available for add-on purchases.

EXCLUSIVES

Dying to know what this year’s Power-Con exclusives will be? They will be revealed at Toy Fair 2017 starting this Saturday, February 18th at the Super7 booth #5478. Look for press coverage from different toy sites and a video walk-through from Pixel Dan!

The exclusives will be available for attendees via a pre-order with advance ticket sales. While we do not know specifics at this time, we are going to try our best to offer the MOTU Classic exclusives to non-attendees. Other Power-Con items such as t-shirts and other non-MOTU Classics exclusive items will only be available to attendees and exhibitors.

EXHIBITORS

Exhibitor table and booth sales will begin before attendee ticket sales. We are working on finalizing this information and will share the sale info as far ahead of time as possible. Please keep a close eye on the Power-Con website, Facebook, Twitter, and especially our mailing list for frequent updates.

PRESS & VOLUNTEERS

Press and volunteer registration will be available around the same time as our advance ticket sales.
