James DeRuvo Goes to Comic-Con, and some other family oriented adventures


Family Travel and Tech Lord James DeRuvo spent the summer taking his family to several “cons” including the grand daddy of them all, San Diego Comic-Con. He joins us to talk about those 4 heady days of pop culture, why he’s taking his teenager to PowerMorphicon, and how a con is not only a great way to celebrate pop culture, but a fun family vacation as well.

PowerMorphicon is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the longest running kids TV series … the Power Rangers. Based on the Super Sentai hero series from Japan, this martial arts kids show has grown into a toy, movie and even comic-con powerhouse. And the 2018 POWER MORPHICON CONVENTION is the largest Power Rangers fan fest in the world.  And if you’re in the Orange County area and are a Ranger fan, you can still get tickets on the day you arrive!

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.
