Saban's Power Rangers and thousands of fans will join forces to celebrate the 4 th bi-annual Power Rangers official fan-run convention, Power Morphicon, at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA August 22-24.

"Saban Brands is excited to participate once again in this year's Power Morphicon," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. "It is always a thrill to see Ranger Nation come together in full force and we can't wait to celebrate the Power Rangers franchise with thousands of our passionate and loyal fans."
To kick off the opening of Power Morphicon, fans can gather for an exciting event on Saturday, August 23, at 8:45 a.m. outside the Pasadena Convention Center. Saban's Power Rangers and special "Junior Ranger" guests from Make-A-Wish will take part in an epic stunt to POWER UP Power Morphicon, which originally started in 2006 to grant the wish of a child in the Make-A-Wish program. The Power Rangers are partnering with Make-A-Wish, the official 2014 Power Morphicon Charity Auction beneficiary, and special guests to transform the lives of five kids from around the country with life-threatening medical conditions by granting their wishes to meet the Power Rangers.
At 1 p.m., fans can attend the Power Rangers Super Megaforce Panel in Ballroom D&E, moderated by Chip Lynn, Executive Producer of the upcoming Power Rangers Dino Charge season. Fans can expect a lively Q&A session with the Super Megaforce cast, followed by a never-before-seen look at the highly anticipated upcoming 2015 season. Following the panel, attendees can meet the cast of Power Rangers Super Megaforce at the official cast signing from 2-4 p.m. in the Main Hallway. In addition, fans can expect to meet and pose for photos with various legendary Rangers on the show floor throughout the full run of the convention.
