POWER-CON RETURNS IN 2013 TO CELEBRATE HE-MAN, SHE-RA, NINJA TURTLES, AND THUNDERCATS!
December 12, 2012

After two successful years, the POWER-CON will return September 14th and 15th, 2013 to the Torrance Marriott South Bay, in Torrance, California. Not only will the convention still encompass the worlds of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, She-Ra: Princess of Power, and the ThunderCats, but it will now be raising some shell by including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the celebration!

The lean, mean, and green fighting machines will be given the same attention and love He-Man, She-Ra, and the ThunderCats has received during Power-Con’s first two outings. As the fans who have attended previously will attest, this is a convention that caters directly to the fans by bringing in the top talent involved with the properties you love, extensive programming and panels during the entire weekend, vendors that have the collector in mind, and even an opportunity to dine with the creators and thespians who helped bring these beloved properties to life.

Hotel reservation information is coming soon which will include a discounted room rate for Power-Con attendees. Make sure to keep an eye out for this announcement as our hotel block sold out quickly last year before the show. With the inclusion of the Turtles, we expect an even faster sell-out.

Guest announcements and programming details will be continuously released throughout the upcoming year. Please bookmark our official convention website at: http://www.thepower-con.com/ , friend us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ThePowerCon, and follow us on Twitter @ThePowerCon.

We look forward to seeing all the fans help bring the power, honor, thunder, and cowabunga to 2013 this September!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
