The biggest Power Rangers event of the year is almost upon us in Power Morphicon, and here's everything you need to know about the anticipated event.
Whether it's the full guest list, event details, exclusives, or just how to contact if you have an issue, everything you'll need to get ready for the big event can be found in this one post. Yeah, we're givers that way, but first here's the official press release from Power Morphicon for a general overview of the convention.
"The Power Morphicon Convention is celebrating its SIXTH show, the expo's first at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The show is run by veteran convention artist and vendor Scott Zillner who annually puts on nearly a dozen shows in the Los Angeles and Sacramento areas including Japan World Heroes, a convention celebrating Japanese and Sentai related popular culture. Power Morphicon Convention has been held every other year since 2007, and Scott Zillner has been in control of the show since its second run in 2010. Since then, Power Morphicon Convention has been held consistently on even-numbered years.
Power Morphicon Convention hosts the largest number of actors and crew from the Power Rangers franchise, including artists and actors from the original Japanese Super Sentai series, upon which the Power Rangers television show is based. In addition to meeting their favorite actors from Power Rangers, fans and convention attendees will be able to purchase some convention exclusive merchandise. These special convention-only items are available for pre-order with your paid convention membership (attending or non-attending), or at the expo during the show. Items include the exclusive Lord Drakkon figurine (throne sold separately) and the black and gold Megazord Funko Pop! figurine. A convention-exclusive Power Morphicon Convention T-shirt is available for purchase, as well as metal Morphin' Coins and specialized merchandise for Membership Tier."

Lord Drakkon Exclusive Figure And Throne
Fans who attend Power Morphicon will have the chance to purchase an exclusive Legacy figure, and that is none other than Lord Drakkon.
The character has become a fan favorite thanks to BOOM! Studios' Power Rangers comics and this will be the only place to get as part of Bandai's Legacy line. Each tier will have an allotted amount of figures that they can purchase, which you can find on the Registration slide. Each figure will cost $50, and will also come in a Bandai America Legacy box with special slipcover.
Fans can also pick up a custom throne for their Lord Drakkon figure, which is handmade and hand painted. The throne will cost $65 for those attending Power Morphicon and $80 for those not attending, and for international non-attending, it will cost $100.prevnext
Funko POP Black and Gold Megazord
It wouldn't be a convention without an exclusive Funko POP to collect, and fans at Power Morphicon can grab the slick looking Black & Gold themed Megazord POP on the show floor.
The Power Morphicon exclusive Megazord will retail for $25 dollars and you can also grab a special protector for the POP at $5 each. The best way to get this item was to pre-order it through your registration tier, but whatever is left over after those pre-orders will be available at the show, so if you see one on the show floor make sure to grab it.prevnext
Convention Prints And More
You can also pick up special Power Morphicon art prints at the show or through pre-order, and there will be several to choose from.
The default print will be available at the show and with all tiers and features Mighty Morphin Red, Lord Drakkon, and the Red Ranger from Beast Morphers, all drawn by artist Tsuyoshi Nonaka.0comments
There will also be a Red Ranger print by artist Matt Frank, as well as a Silver Ranger Print by artist Tone Rodriguez, which features Lord Drakkon. The Gold Ranger Print is by artist Jerome Lu and features the original five Mighty Morphin Rangers and their Megazord. The Platinum Ranger Print has yet to be revealed but will be by artist Shinji Nishikawa.
In addition, fans can also pick up several exclusive convention coins (Standard, Silver, Gold, and Platinum) as well as several convention shirts and hoodies.prev
