Because 5 to 6 hours, JDF typically doesn't have anywhere near that long of lines of fans to meet him at most of the other shows, conventions he does.
Because the focus is split at comic book conventions.

This was wall-to-wall Power Rangers fans, and there will never be a Power Ranger that ranks higher among us than Tommy Oliver.

There are two reasons why:

The first is that other cons are just that...other cons. The conventions he shows up to are pop-culture centered...movies, TV, comics, wrestling, anime, etc. People who go there go for various portions, but you won't have a massive collection of fans of any one genre showing up up.

Power Morphicon is just for Power Rangers. Yes, they branch out a bit with Sentai, Kamen Rider, Beetlebogs, and so forth, but the reason people go is simple: Power Rangers. Every person there, and this was the largest convention yet, was there for Power Rangers. They weren't there to see someone from a Marvel movie, or a writer of a Superman comic, or the actor on their favorite CW show, they were there for the Power Rangers. Add in, as previously mentioned, this was the largest, there were countless there who'd never gone to PMC before, perhaps never even been to a con at all before. Further, it isn't only new people who want to meet him and get something autographed. Personally, I've met him at 4 different events.

The second reason it was so long is he was only there one day. You didn't have the "I'll come back later" option. You either got in line and met him now, or missed your chance. Most people don't go to multiple conventions a year. Some of the people who went to PMC may never attend another convention again, so waiting, regardless of how long, was a no-brainer.

So would there be any reason you'd think that?
Because Rose McIver is a very good actress with a relatively high profile role for a CW show and has a rather nice resume coming out of her show to begin with. She's essentially set up to follow the Kirsten Bell route thanks to working with Rob Thomas like this. Therefore there's a higher chance of the con cancelling than her not getting more work.

Also, the general behind the scenes drama of this con too.

Wait wait wait. There *WAS* an after dark panel, only it wasnít listed? How was I supposed to find out about it? That is majorly fucking disappointing. The whole show was disappointing. Where can I complain about my awful experience?

I knew JDF was going to have the biggest, longest line, but not as big as it turned out to be at this years PMC, I didn't think it would be that crazy because he does lots of conventions, so easy opportunities for fans to meet him, he's still much easier to meet than Amy Jo, was it because it had been a couple of years since he last did a convention in California or was it because of all the hype this year about Lord Drakken? Because 5 to 6 hours, JDF typically doesn't have anywhere near that long of lines of fans to meet him at most of the other shows, conventions he does.
Yeah he hasn't done an appearance in LA in forever and I think the locals showed up in droves to see him.

when he was at PMC 2010, I don't believe he showed up at a convention in California again until SDCC 2017 last year, and was at SDCC again this year, and since SDCC tickets are hard to come by, it's not open to the whole public like most conventions, so I guess sort of understandable that he would have a huge line at PMC this year. Absolutely there would never be another ranger that ranks higher among fans than JDF, although i do believe Amy Jo does come close, because her and JDF are the most popular without a doubt of the MMPR era.


Thats why it i felt it was fun to use my imagination to think how much bigger or crazy the line would be at PMC if Amy Jo was with JDF, the line probably would have extended to the stairway and maybe even outside the building, and get the Fire Marshall involved.
Since not only has Amy never attended a single PMC but she has never done any type of convention in the L.A. area or California at all period, not even the West Coast, yes i know i have mentioned her before, just bringing her up again because it's fun to use your imagination at times.

Yeah if Amy Jo had been there you would've had to camp out overnight outside the con hall to be able to meet her.

It was me and my husbandís first morphicon and while there were a number of issues that presented themselves throughout the weekend Iím honestly so happy to have come. It was an amazing experience to actually hang out with all sorts of ranger fans since I actually donít know many people that like Pr. I didnít meet as many guests or other fans as much as I would like due to being super shy but man I canít wait to come back 2020 and have another go at it. Especially knowing more of what to expect since that was my first con ever!

I've started to unpack and exhibit the toys and stuff I got from PMC and Otakon and while I was trying to get the Pterodactyl on the black Megazord, wow, I really am a disgrace to myself and my family. I spent waaaaaay too much money.

Yeah they were selling them by the case at the con and now they don't have enough for preorders? That is bizarre but not surprising considering how the rest of the con was run.

Just why why why why why?

Even lip service would sound good as to these multiple faults.
