Power-Packages in short supply!

 

Power-Packages have sold far more than we anticipated. We have only a limited quantity left. If you want everything that comes with the Power-Package, including drink tickets and the coveted VIP badge for priority panel/signing session admission, you may want to order yours now. We can’t guarantee how many, if any, will be left on the weekend of the convention.

Please note the panel room seats 150 with a small amount of standing room at the back.  If a panel is crowded and/or a large line is waiting to enter the next panel, we WILL clear the panel room. A VIP badge will grant you immediate admission back into the next panel ahead of regular attendees.

Action Figure Xpress Debuts Mumm-Ra The Ever Living Retro Colors Staction Figure at Power-con/Thundercon

 

On thee heels of the hot selling Mumm-Ra the Ever Living Staction Figure, Action Figure Xpress releases a special edition Mumm-Ra Retro Colors Variant Figure by Icon Heroes, LLC.  Strictly limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, this special paint scheme pays homage to the vintage Mumm-Ra action figure of the 1980′s.   Action Figure Xpress will premiere the figure at Power-con / Thundercon at Four Points by Sheraton LAX, booth # 25, on September 24-25, 2011.

Like the regular edition, the figure is designed to depict the villain’s ferocity with burning eyes, a billowing cape and draping bandages and measures 9″h x 11″w x 2.5″d on base.  The gate-fold window box packaging is fit for any collector, featuring a special diorama insert of Mumm-Ra’s Tomb Fortress.  What is rare is the variant paint scheme.

Many collectors, like me, had the older Thundercats figures.  With the vintage paint scheme of the livid green skin, fiery red helmet, and large Mumm-Ra insignia; we tried to pay tribute to the 1980′s said Patrick Wang, president, Action Figure Xpress.  Because this retro figure is extremely limited and made for the Thundercats diehards, what better place to release these than the 1st Power-Con / Thundercon .

As a special bonus, every Mumm-Ra Retro staction figure purchased at Power-con / Thundercon will come with an exclusive free gift – the Ma-Mutt staction figure, measuring 3.5″h x 1.5″ w x 2.5″ d on base.  The Mumm-Ra Retro and Ma-Mutt companion station figure set will be available for $50 exclusively at the Action Figure Xpress booth #25.  A limited number will be available online after the show on September 26, 2011 at www.shopafx.com.
