Scott and his amazing team at Power Morphicon have made the tough decision amidst the current global situation to postpone the bi-annual convention till 2021.
Like nearly everyone around the world right now, we have been following the COVID-19 crisis very carefully. As you are aware, it has caused many restrictions in how large events can (or cannot) be conducted. Because of these restrictions and the impact of COVID-19 in the state of California, we are not able to hold our event this year. It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the postponement of Power Morphicon 2020.PMC
But wait, there’s MORE!
We are, however, pleased to announce that we do have a new date for next year. Power Morphicon Convention will be held June 18-20 2021 at the Pasadena Convention Center. All memberships will be automatically transferred to this new event date. If you are unable to come to the June 2021 show, we would be happy to transfer your membership to Non-Attending at no extra cost. This applies only to memberships purchased before April 29th, 2020. PMC will relaunch new memberships later this year.PMC
What about my stuff?!
In addition to the COVID-19 crisis placing limitations on large gatherings in California, it caused production delays all over the world. We became unsure if any of our exclusive items (and yes, there will be exclusives!) would be ready in time for the September 2020 show. We have been working diligently with Hasbro and Super7, who will be supplying the next round of PMC Exclusive items! With PMC postponed to June 2021, we have our exclusives confirmed and they will be ready for members and attendees to buy without issue. We will have a new system in place for members to pre-purchase exclusives and pick them up at the event. Non-Attending members will have exclusives shipped to them after the convention.PMC
The Power-Morphicon staff are working diligently to help move hotel blocks for attendees. This might take a bit as most hotels are either closed or are short-staffed at the moment.
Is (INSERT NAME) still coming to Morphicon?
As of right now, the Power-Morphicon team is doing its best to confirm which guests have the availability to make it to the 2021 show.
What does this mean for the franchise and Power-Morphicon?
I don’t think it’s going to affect the franchise as a whole. Hasbro is just going to have to step up its game when they announce the cast for the next series. But with the global situation production has come to a standstill for many shows. So who knows if the casting had really gone anywhere yet since it’s been suspended.
