For the die-hard fan, here’s more of the raw video we shot for our PopCult Road Trip clip. The audio has been replaced with stock music from the YouTube library for the most part because we don’t want to accidently broadcast anybody’s private conversations that might have been picked up by our microphones. This week we’re sharing the raw video from PowerCon, the huge toy convention in Columbus, Ohio, devoted to cool toys of all kinds, with lots of the wildest manufacturers on hand to show off their stuff.
What you have here is random shots of cool toys, featuring a big chunk of the main floor of PowerCon, plus the folks walking around looking at and buying toys. It’s just under 24 minutes of toy show immerssion. Of extra note is that the main attraction for me was that MEGO Meet was a part of PowerCon and you’ll see lots of cool MEGO stuff in this video, in addition to all the other stuff that was mostly caught on video by Mel.
We had a blast at the show, but it was part of an exhausting weekend as we attended two major toy collector conventions on the same weekend, some five-hundred miles apart. I’ve been writing about that trip since we got back, several weeks ago, and I’m still not fully recovered from all the intense fun.
We covered JoeLanta with our Raw Footage a couple of weeks ago, HERE.
Believe it on not, more than six weeks removed from our trip, we still have a couple of short videos from PowerCon yet to edit, and we still have one more video in the pipeline from Kentuckiana. The video editing takes up a lot of time, and your PopCulteer can no longer get by on four hours of sleep a night, so we’ll get those to you when our schedule allows. In the meantime, enjoy the video above.
