Another Power-Con has come and gone, but it feels like it was the best one yet. 2017’s attendance mirrored that of 2016 and lots of fans had a great time at the show. It’s a true testament to the power of our fandom and how, while we wait for a new film and new cartoons, our passion helps keep He-Man and She-Ra alive year after year. Combine that with amazing products from Super7, the Four Horsemen and many other licensed vendors, and we continue to see one amazing year after another. And I’m thrilled Power-Con can help celebrate that, thanks to your support!
This year’s Power-Con shifted its focus to themed guests and programming. We had the 35th anniversary of the vintage MOTU toy line, the 30th anniversary of the 1987 live-action film, the 30th anniversary of the Power Tour, and the 15th anniversary of the 200x toy line and cartoon.
The 2018 show will continue this theme, and will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Filmation Masters of the Universe cartoon and… hold onto your seat for this one… the 10th anniversary of the MOTU Classics toy line, one of the longest running and best toy lines in history!
Power-Con will return once more to the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach hotel. Many of you know first-hand how incredible and inviting the Marriott staff is and we’re proud to be back in Torrance in southwest Los Angeles county for another year. So mark your calendar for next year’s dates:
August 25 & 26, 2018!
Many of you hoped to come this year but could not because so many schools across the USA start back after Labor Day. So, we have moved the show into the end of August to give more of you a chance to come and also bring your families with you to enjoy Power-Con and many of the fantastic attractions in and around Los Angeles.
This show wouldn’t exist without the hard work and dedication of our volunteer staff and fan volunteers, along with the support of talented guests, informative press, and exhibitors with their wide range of fantastic offerings. But most importantly, the show thrives on the support of all the non-attendees who purchase our exclusives and the patronage of so many great attendees who take part in Power-Con. Thank you all so much!
For everyone who attended, if you had a great time, please spread the word! Let other fans know what the show is like and hopefully you can help encourage them to come. Word-of-mouth is our biggest advertising tool, and we hope as many He-Man and She-Ra fans possible from across the globe will come out to experience what makes Power-Con so special for the rest of us.
So let the planning for 2018 begin! It will be some time before we announce various prices and registration details for attendees, exhibitors and more. Until then, we recommend signing up to our mailing list so you won’t miss out on important announcements about dates and information. Please click here to subscribe.
And we hope to see you all at Power-Con in 2018!
Power-Con, Event Director
