The website never listed him as part of the panel. And unlike Greg from SPD, he's listed under Production instead of the WF section of the Guests page.

Additionally, it was the first panel on Saturday and those of us who waited in line to get in "at 10" missed the introductions.
You were at PMC? Those of us from AFPR still around in the fandom oughta do some sort of meetup in 2020. I still miss those long nights in the newsgroup...

Based on what Andros listed down, he received more than I was able to get at the con--
I mean, I didn't get the con coin, I didn't get the red bag...
and I didn't get autographed prints--not counting the ninja steel cast's. (although, this one's on me.)

Couple thoughts watching panels I didn't go to:

As much as Megaforce sucked, still the best looking cast and I'm convinced they have the most fun when they're together.

Adelaide Kane has got to come back. She owned the RPM panel and had great responses at Villains too. Though that panel was also pretty awkward.

In the Pink/White/Purple Rangers panel, I love that Aly Purrott brought up RangerBoard and the photos leaked when they celebrated Brandon's birthday (which was the first time we saw what the SPD Rangers would potentially look like).

It took like 42 minutes for a fan to finally ask Amit about his PROA site and becoming a writer in the Wild Force panel. I don't think much of the room even knew who he was, just a writer/producer.



Thanks!
No probs/I've just seen a lot of hate lately so your post was well-needed. If this sort of thing is OK, I made a vlog about the con:

I mention in the vlog I also didn't attend many panels either, but I did attend a few of them/Ninja Steel's, Hasbro's, part of the Forever Reds /Because that was before the Shattered Grid live-reading and that was INCREDIBLE. I also put in as subs that I didn't know about EVERYTHING wrong that went down, but honestly like mparker88 said a few posts ago - the good far outweighed the bad for me.

Heck, I almost lost my wallet but thankfully someone brought it to the redemption desk so I could pick it up. If I had a negative about the con, that would have been it. I'm even working on a cosplay I'm making from scratch/For the most part for RangerStop next year & PMC the year after that. I'm excited than ever before now.

You non-attendings are the real MVPs. I'll never understand why it costs more to have some con swag mailed to you than it does to attend the convention AND get all the same stuff!
In the long run, we're not spending as much. We're not playing for the cost of travel to get there, be it gasoline or plane tickets. We're not paying for accommodations, but, neither are those who live close to the con. We aren't paying for extra meals, especially since convention venue food prices tend to be slightly higher than off-site venues.

I just want to say to keep in mind that the Drakkon and the Con Coin were not included with my Red Membership. I bought those separate. Also, the 2 signatures that I got were not expected either. My original membership was to just be the Bag, 2 pins, lanyard/badge and the poster.

Soooo......looks like they don't even have enough Drakkons for one per person now, some people are totally getting shafted. I got one extra, waiting to see if it'll end up paying for my whole trip hahaha

Oh. Well, then it's just the bag that I didn't get.

And reading everything that went wrong (and having experienced some of them), I'm also still very pumped for 2020. I was planning to do a civilian cosplay this year, but work got in the way. So maybe for the next Morphicon...

I wish there was more coverage out there on this story. Maybe a lot of sites/podcasts/influencers are just ignoring it to keep, or obtain, their panel/VIP for 2020?

I think it's just brushing aside by the audience in general.

Nobody really seems outraged, just "typical at this point smh".

Yeah probably. However the funny thing is that despite what an overall disaster this years con was, by the time tickets go on sale next year no one will remember/care.

Pepperidge Farms remembers.

I just hope that the criticism, the constructive and even some of the harsh (because anger tends to be a more raw emotion which reveals real feelings), is taken in to consideration for the planning of the next show. If Power Rangers continues to get specific shows with Hasbro partnership (whereas Transformers, G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony have all had their previous partnership shows absolved for HasCon) then I want to see the show prosper and grow. But there has to be oversight and, to an extent, accountability for missteps.

What gets me are the people who are saying, "Yeah, this is bad. But I hope nobody's blaming Scott for this, he's a great guy, it's not his fault."

Really? If it's not the fault of the guy managing, running, and who is wholly financially responsible for the event, then who is responsible? If the Facebook account is shaming people for cursing out the unpaid volunteers, then who exactly gets to be held accountable for the severe mishandling of the event?

Yeah it's ultimately his fault. I think up until now he's been able to get away with sort of half-assing it since it was a relatively small con, but it's just grown too big now and the lack of planning and organization really showed this time.

Pasadena Comic Con Jan 2019
Power Morphicon Express April 2019
Sac Toy Con March 2019
Robo Toy Fest June 2019
Toon Con October 2019

Eric from RCPH has been banging a drum about what a shitshow the con was for a while now, but he didn't have a panel.

No promises, but I'm seeing what we can make happen over at Tokusatsu Network right now. Again, can't promise anything (I'm not a senior editor). But I'm seeing.

Well Jason Bischoff listens to their podcast so maybe we'll see some serious Hasbro intervention for 2020.

We got a news article up. It's pretty cut and dry, but given we're a news outlet, we can't exactly interject opinion and can only state facts. But now it's out there.
