The ultimate convention for Masters of the Universe, ThunderCats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans kicks off this weekend in Torrance, CA with the 3rd annual Power-Con Convention. Not only will Mattel be on hand to reveal new Masters of the Universe products for 2014, but Playmates Toys will be there as well, and we have been told by the folks at Playmates that a few never before seen figures for their Nickelodeon based animated series line should be on hand and revealed to the public for the first time this weekend.
For those who can't make the show, be sure to keep it here to TNI starting weekend for complete coverage of the event.

You don't want to miss what is being called one of the ultimate, most intimate fan experiences! Now in our third year, Power-Con will be presented at the Torrance Marriott South Bay on Saturday, September 14th and Sunday, September 15th. Discount ticket rates are available online for a limited time. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
With a guest list spanning well over 60 guests, Power-Con is delivering the creators and talent that brought Ninja Turtles, He-Man, She-Ra,
to life. Guests like voice actors Greg Cipes, Cam Clarke, Townsend Coleman, Brian Dobson, Larry Kenney, Christian Lanz, Lynne Lipton, and Alan Oppenheimer will be participating in an extensive panel and programming line-up that was created to cater directly to the fans of these magical properties.
Our Exhibitor Hall is completely sold-out and jam-packed with artists, toy and animation vendors, and property giants Mattel Toys
are bringing displays and action figure reveals for the attendees. Power-Con also focuses on enterprising, fan-favorite properties from multiple studios, such as the Power Lords
from the Four Horsemen
For attendees seeking exclusives, be sure to check out items like Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics traveling convention figure Strobo and Action Figure Xpress' limited edition He-Man mouse pad. Visit each vendor to see what goodies they have specifically for Power-Con convention goers.
On Saturday, Power-Con also features a charity auction where 50% of the proceeds help benefit the Keep A Child Alive foundation which is dedicated to providing life-saving HIV treatment, care, nutritious food, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV. And if you can't make it to the show to bid in person, we encourage everyone to participate online thanks to Big Toy Auction
. Please help support a worthy cause.
And fans won't want to miss Saturday's cosplay contest with cash prizes totally almost $1000.00. Come out to watch the fun or even participate. Cosplayers from all over will strut their stuff on stage while sporting some amazing costume creations based on their favorite TMNT, He-Man, She-Ra or ThunderCats characters.
