Kaiju Rising with Jerry Conner

Jerry Conner

kaiju The monsters are on the march! From this spring’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” to 2019’s “Godzilla - King of Monsters” to 2020’s “Godzilla vs King Kong”, it’s obvious that the age of giant monsters has come to North America. This panel will take a look at the lexicon of giant monsters, such as “What’s the difference between a kaiju and a daikaiju?” Answer questions like “What is considered the first giant monster movie?” and, “Does the name Gojira mean something? (It does, but you’ll have to come to the panel to find out what.) We’ll also take a look at some of the other great monsters besides the two “Big G’s” (Godzilla and Gamera), and take a look at some of the famous mecha (giant robots; flying tanks, cars, and submarines). Finally, with luck, we’ll try to take a look at previews for some of the upcoming giant monster events!

Brony Meetup with Jerry Conner

Jerry Conner

My Little Pony - Friendship Is Magic will have aired 195 episodes as of the end of the upcoming (at the time of this writing) eighth season, will have aired a stunning 195 episodes, or more than twice as many episodes as its two nearest competitors based on Hasbro products (the original Transformers and GI Joe series - each at just under 100, according to Wikipedia). On top of that, it’s spawned a feature film (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - the Movie), A spinoff universe (My Little Pony - Equestria Girls) which has been featured in two theatrical releases, numerous direct-to-video releases, and online mini-episodes. The show has featured a surprising number of guest voices, including John DeLancie as the frequently infuriating avatar of chaos Discord; “Weird Al” Yankovic as the Party Pony Cheese Sandwich; and a very special Star Trek guest (besides Mr. DeLancie). There have also been a number of ponified cameos, including “The Dude” and friends from “The Big Lebowski” and acertain time-hopping scientist whose cutie mark is a an hourglass... Regardless if the toy line continues (which it almost certainly will), we’re almost certainly looking at major changes in MLP:FIM’s future. So we’ll be taking a loving look back at some of our favorite moments from the series; some of the best of fan work, and where things might go from here. my-little-pony
