Japan World Heroes is a California-based convention created by Power Morphicon showrunner Scott Zillner. The convention centers around tokusatsu superheroes, making it one of the first of its kind in the USA dedicated solely to such a theme. The convention features cosplay, Japanese toy vendors, art and collectibles as well as a chance for fans to meet some of thier favorite actors or suit actors or other special guests.
In an interview, Zillner said he wanted to do this convention as there is a bigger world of heroes than just Power Rangers and wishes to celebrate it by inviting guests from Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Metal Heroes, Ultraman, Godzilla and many more. The first convention was in Pasadena, California at the Pasadena Convention Center on August 26, 2017 and ran until the following day. A second convention is being planned for 2019, but details on the location and guests are to be determined at this time.
