Convention Comet: RangerStop & Pop 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia

Hello all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new convention post! Yes, I know it’s been a long time and this is huge for us too! Let’s get into it!

RangerStop &Pop

Location: Weston Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia

Dates: August 27-29, 2021

Yes! We have a new convention we’re doing press for a new convention! Well, not so new but we’re heading for an out of state convention! Since 2015, we wanted to do press for a convention outside of Florida since our first was in Tampa, which of course was MetroCon back in 2013 and 2014. Don’t worry, we still appreciate our work with the ones we’ve worked at in Orlando which one includes RangerStop and seeing the posters around announcing some of the guests RJ and I talked about it and got press for this year’s convention.

What About Covid? I know this question would come up since 2020 had been taken away and that caused a lot of events to cancel or move their dates to this year. RangerStop & Pop was one of these conventions. They were moved to March at first except the pandemic expanded and now it’s in August of this year. Unfortunately, we also must announce that we won’t be doing press for Omni Fandom Expo due to the new RangerStop Atlanta dates. I know it has been a big part of our convention press but there is always next year. If you guys are worried about the virus, please! PLEASE get vaccinated! This pandemic is slowing down because of the vaccinations and we’re trying to hit herd immunity here in the states. And if still worried, bring extra hand sanitizer, wear your mask, and of course wash your hands and follow any procedures conventions may have while attending. I know me and RJ will be doing that while we’re in Atlanta. Now onto the post!

Location: This convention will be located at the Weston Buckhead Due to how popular this convention is, rooms do sell out fast and we did reserve early enough. They also have an overflow block now which you can check their website for and again, this block will sell out so if you’re planning a convention trip then reserve now for this one.

The Weston does feature a lot of rooms with refrigerators, comfortable bedding, and, they do have cleaning procedures in place to make sure everything is sanitized. Also, they do give guests free sanitizer. They are surrounded by many attractions like Lego Land Discovery, the botanical gardens, and a few other places. I know we will be looking around since this is our first time in Atlanta. Heck, even try out a place that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

Guests: Like any convention, the guest list did catch our eye. This convention not only features guests from many seasons of Power Rangers but also features guests from other parts of pop culture. I mean they even had Kel Mitchell as a guest one year. Also, what got me happy is of course this year marks the twentieth anniversary of Power Rangers Time Force! Which I did buy a copy of! Now let’s see who a guest is at this one:

  • Chris Sabat: My Hero Academia, Dragonball Z, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, and more!
  • Johnny Yong Bosch: Mighty Morphen Power Rangers, Wolf’s Rain, Devil May Cry 4 & 5
  • Paul Shrier: Mighty Morphen Power Rangers, In Space, Lost Galaxy
  • Jason Narvy: Mighty Morphen, In Space
  • Katherine Sutherland: Mighty Morphen, Zeo, Turbo
  • Nikia Burrise: Mighty Morphen
  • Karen Ashley: Zeo, Turbo
  • Elizabeth Maxwell: Attack on Titan, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Jason Faunt: Time Force, Resident Evil 6 (mo-cap)
  • Deborah Estelle Philips: Time Force
  • Austin St. John: Mighty Morphen

That’s going to be all the guests I will mention here for now! There will be more to come as the event gets closer! Trust me, I’m super excited about this year’s event! And of course, getting to film the panels for the Nerdy Shique Universe YouTube since we have a new video camera in time for this year’s event. I am looking into a new photo camera as well. Make sure you follow us on the Nerdy Shique Universe Twitter and follow our podcast, Nerdy Shique Transmissions, for more news to come since I do spread out any info whether it’s through Twitter or in the podcast universe!

Tickets: There are passes left by the looks of things on the official site. When you get to the main page, make sure you choose Atlanta since there is no word on Orlando now. Weekend passes are $65 and you can get different VIP packages, which are silver which cost $175, Gold, $250, and Platinum, $300. There are passes for kids for ages 4 through 12 and those are $20.

What Are We Looking Forward to? The travelling. Like I said before, 2020 was pretty much taken from everyone and I was looking forward to going to Omni last year except that didn’t take place at all. Plus, we rarely get to travel away from Orlando or shall I say Florida in general since we do work and I only travelled with my family on different things and that was different. Now doing it with RJ is a new experience with how long we’ve been with each other and we have gone to Tampa for MetroCon so far. I’m also looking forward to seeing what events they bring to this one, hoping they have Rangers After Dark which some ridiculous stuff can happen at this panel. Not only that, seeing about the pop culture aspects since we did have Samantha Newark and Wally Wingert at Orlando’s 2019 convention. And of course, getting new shirts designed since we did upgrade our link to a full-on website since I need to do that next month due to the time the shirts arrive. And of course, passing out our new business cards since they were found when we unpacked from our move last November. All in all, I’m looking forward to getting back out there and doing what we’re known best and that is bringing convention content.

So, that is it for this post! You can find out the rest of the information relating to RangerStop & Pop at the link below! I’m waiting on my Glam Bag now so hang tight!
