Power-Con Returns in 2016!

Power-Con, the He-Man and She-Ra fan convention, is set to return to Los Angeles in the Spring of 2016! While we cannot reveal all of the secrets of the universe just yet, we can let you know that more exciting details about the show will be announced during Mattel’s Mattypalooza Panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. If you will be in attendance at SDCC this year, make sure to give your best Battle Cat inspired roar of support that Power-Con is gearing up for an energized 2016!

Power-Con 2016 will focus on the core properties of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power. The convention will feature guests who worked on various aspects of He-Man and She-Ra, fan programming, exhibitors, and more! Continue to check www.thepower-con.com for more information.

In the meantime, Power-Con would love to hear from you! What did you like about previous Power-Cons? What would you like to see changed or added? The Power-Con staff is always listening. Please use the contact form on our website and let your voice be heard.

Here’s looking forward to a “good journey” in Los Angeles, 2016!

Power-Con Update

While there are no current plans for a 2015 Power-Con, the convention staff is hard at work brainstorming options for a possible 2016 event.  The first three Power-Cons had an amazing showing of passionate fans from the properties of He-Man, She-Ra, ThunderCats, and Ninja Turtles, as well as enthusiastic appearances from many of the talented individuals who helped to bring these beloved properties to life. We truly appreciate the continued interest we have received from fans and exhibitors and hope to have more information available soon.

Going forward, Power-Con intends to focus solely on He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra: Princess of Power. As much as we love the other brands showcased at Power-Con in the past, our show is run by a dedicated staff of volunteers who plan this convention in their limited free time. As with past shows, we will strive to craft an amazing experience at future shows for He-Fans and She-Ravers.

Do you want to see ThunderCats or TMNT return to Power-Con? If so, and you have a background coordinating fan events, and want to volunteer to help organize those parts of the show, please contact us!

And if you’re a past or potential future attendee, guest or exhibitor, we’d love to hear from you! What did you like about Power-Con? What would you like to see changed or added? The Power-Con staff is always listening. Please use the contact form on our website and let your voice be heard.
Here’s looking forward to a “good journey” in to 2016!

 

Power-Con 2014 has been canceled

We appreciate all the kind words and messages of support everyone has shared on behalf of Power-Con. Unfortunately, our goal for advanced sales was not reached which has resulted in cancellation of our 2014 event.

Refunds for tickets, vendor tables, and Goat Man preorders will begin to be issued this weekend and will be completed within 60 days of this announcement. You do not need to contact us to request your refund, it will be automatically processed within the 60 days. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the actual refund process, please contact us via our website.

We’re sorry we were not able to offer Goat Man at Power-Con. MattyCollector will be offering Goat Man at San Diego Comic-Con and later this year via their online store. Much like in previous years with the travelling exclusive, we suspect Goat Man will be fairly easy to obtain online.

The He-Man and She-Ra fan base is a passionate one. It has an amazing online community and we hope it will live on for decades to come. With each new year comes new opportunities for the MOTU and POP brands as well as for the fans. If a new form of entertainment arises for He-Man and She-Ra, such as a movie or cartoon, Power-Con will return and again strive to create the experience that was enjoyed by so many of you at Power-Con in the three previous years.

Thank you to all the attendees, vendors, exhibitors, press, volunteers, and talent that have supported Power-Con for the last three years and we wish you a good journey!

Power-Con 2014 Facing Cancellation. Your Help is Needed!

He-Man and She-Ra Fans,

For the past three years Power-Con was hosted in the Los Angeles area with an abundance of guests, enthusiastic attendees, and many happy vendors. But for the people organizing and running Power-Con, the show is a labor of love that has always operated with the goal of breaking even on expenses, even with the entire staff working on a volunteer and unpaid basis. So when the LA show peaked in attendance, we knew we had to look at other possible venues to continue the event. Countless fans asked every year for Power-Con to come to New York. Therefore, in an effort to help the show continue and give fans what they asked for, the decision was made to take this year’s show to the city that never sleeps. Unfortunately, the staff at Power-Con is coming to you today with a heavy heart to announce that the number of advanced tickets sold are 28% of the total needed to pay for the current convention expenses.

The vast majority of He-Man and She-Ra creative talent live in and around the Los Angeles area. Getting talent to New York adds additional high cost factors that were not present in the LA location, which is why we forewarned fans that doing a travelling show would result in Power-Con having a smaller guest list, akin to other brand-specific traveling conventions. Our current guest list for the show is final: Brian Dobson, the voice of the 200X Skeletor; Dave Bullock, Mike Young He-Man storyboard artist; Djordje Djokovic, sculptor and graphic designer who has worked on various He-Man projects; the Four Horsemen toy design group; Paul Kupperberg, original DC Comics He-Man writer; and Earl Norem, famed He-Man artist. We also have a number of great vendors already committed to the show.

If you want to come and experience an intimate gathering with fellow fans of He-Man and She-Ra, and interact with some of the talent who helped bring these brands to life, please purchase your advanced tickets by Friday, July 11, 2014.

The bottom line:

  • If we reach 100% of the number of advanced ticket sales needed by Friday, July 11, 2014 (one week from today), we will be able to proceed with the payment that is required by our host hotel. Power-Con, like many conventions, requires expensive up-front costs including hotel room fees, meeting room rentals, audio/visual equipment rentals, and other related expenses. New York is especially expensive.
  • If we do not reach 100%, the convention will be canceled and we will absorb the financial loss already dedicated to the project. Pre-ordered tickets, Goat Man orders, and vendor table sales will then be refunded over a 60 day period following the July 11th deadline. We are not able to refund other related travel expenses and deeply apologize.

We hope a cancellation does not occur. We want Power-Con to reach its goal and go on as planned in New York. Please spread the word to any fans you may know, especially those who live in and around the New York City area. We at Power-Con still hope to put on a great show in New York that mirrors the fun of the previous three years in Los Angeles!

On a positive note, if we meet our goal by Friday, July 11th:
• We will begin looking at the possibility of adding additional guests to the convention. The more tickets sold past 100%, the more guests we can pursue.
• All advanced ticket holders will receive a free art print illustrated by Chris Faccone.
