PMC has a new date June 18-20 2021

Dear PMC Members,

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.

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.

Convention Exclusives:

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.

At this time, PMC is working with out hotel partners for new blocks and rooms that will be ready for you as soon as possible. Once that is available we will post it. This process may take a week or two as they are short handed.  You can also contact the hotel of your choice for new block information. They will let you know the process of whether your  current reservation is already canceled, or if it can be transferred.

PMC is also working with our incredible guests to reconfirm their availability to come to the show and meet you! As always, we want Power Morphicon to be a wonderful experience for its attendees. We are working around the clock to make the next one unforgettable.
