Hey folks, in the interest of getting the word out and showing Japan’s tokusatsu heroes that their fans want them to come to the US, I wanted to help promote this upcoming convention in Pasadena, California. JAPAN WORLD HEROES is taking place in just about a month from now — August 25th, 26th & 27th at the Pasadena Convention Center. I asked the showrunner of Japan World Heroes, fellow nerd and toy collector extraordinaire Scott Zilner to do a spot on the Kaijucast to help dish out the hype! Scott also helms two other popular indie show, RoboToyFest and Power Morphicon, so I can’t wait to see what he’s putting together for Japan World Heroes. I am so very excited for this show and I hope to get involved with some more cool stuff during the convention.

And if you needed another reason to attend, I’ll be tabling in artists alley with (I’m sure) a number of other Kaiju and Tokusatsu influenced artists. I’ll have as many Kaijucast prints, patches, lanyards and stickers as I can take in my suitcases! While this episode was produced in exchange for a table at the show, I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of this and I do hope to see you there! Here’s hoping I can secure interviews with some of the guests, too.
