2011 was an exciting year for ThunderCats fans, not only with the release of a whole new toyline and animated series, but also for the world’s first ever ThunderCats convention, ThunderCon!
Running side-by-side with Power-Con, a convention dedicated to fans of Masters of the Universe and She-Ra Princess of Power, ThunderCon proved to be a huge success amongst ThunderCats fans – so much so that the convention is returning, in September 2012!
Here’s the full press release concerning this year’s convention:
THE POWER-CON / THUNDERCON CONVENTION RETURNS!
Experience the worlds of He-Man®, She-Ra™, and the ThunderCats™ brought together for one convention this September 2012!
January 20, 2012 – Three of the 1980s most blockbuster properties are once again joining forces for their second annual fan convention. POWER-CON / THUNDERCON 2012 — a celebration of Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power, and ThunderCats all together for one great fan convention.
The convention is being presented at the Torrance Marriott South Bay Hotel in Torrance, California, on September 22nd and 23rd 2012.
Last year’s inaugural event was a hit with the fans of these properties, which presented two days worth of panels featuring talent that brought He-Man, She-Ra, and ThunderCats to life. “…the convention had a lot to offer fans. Panels focused on the big names in both Masters of the Universe and ThunderCats history,” said LAWeekly’s Liz Ohaneslan.
Power-Con / ThunderCon 2012 will be releasing more information soon including discounted room information, volunteer and exhibitor registration, ticket prices, guest lists, and detailed programming. What we can tell you now is the convention will once again be presenting an electrifying list of panels, an impressive exhibitor and collectible showroom, a wonderful charity auction, exclusive “Roast Gooble Dinner” Dinner event where lucky fans get to dine with the talent, and a “Masters Cast” After-Hours Mixer for fans to meet, mingle, and enjoy in fandom merriment.
To have the power as soon as possible, make sure to follow the convention:
