The first Power Morphicon Express (PMCX) took place over the weekend in Pasadena, Texas to amazing results. Not only was the show fun and exciting, but programming went without a hitch and by the looks of the (thousands) of fans that attended, it was clear that everyone had an amazing time.
The Power Morphicon Convention, created in 2007, is a Los Angeles staple that takes place every two years. But now, show owner Scott Zillner and PMCX Express partner Jason David Frank are taking the show on the road and bringing the fun and excitement of the original PMC to cities around the United States. And the first stop in Texas April 6-7th, 2019 was a complete success.
In the lobby and merchandising area, PMCX had tons of amazing Power Morphicon apparel, pins, coins, and art prints for sale. Also on display for photo ops were some fantastic costumes, which Power Ranger fans loved seeing!
Our array of vendors brought their a-game to Power Morphicon Express– from action figures, to props and morphers, to Megazords and accessories, there were tons of Power Ranger toys, art, and comic books ready to be swooped up for your collection.
But it wouldn’t be Power Morphicon without, you guessed it, actors from the various Power Rangers series! All of the Power Morphicon Express attendees had a blast getting to meet some of their favorite actors, and all of the guests and talent were so happy to get to meet all of you!
And in addition to fans having the opportunity to meet some of their favorite Power Rangers, we had a full programming schedule. Outside of the panel room, we had a cosplay contest, a karate demonstration by Jason David Frank’s Rising Sun Karate Academy, some skits performed by a cosplay troupe, and Dino Charge Red Ranger Brennan Mejia teaching the audience how to move like a Power Ranger!
But inside the panel room was where even more fun was had! From the Zeo Reunion panel, to the Jason David Frank solo panel, and the Women of the Grid session, every single discussion was packed and filled with Power Rangers fans, smiling faces, and enthusiastic questions.
The first Power Morphicon Express was an exciting two day event that allowed Power Rangers fans who might not be able to access Los Angeles the chance to see some of their favorite stars on a smaller scale. On the flip side, it offered traveling fans of the original Power Morphicon Convention the chance to take part in more Power Rangers fun without waiting for the big show in 2020. We can’t wait for the next Power Morphicon Express!
