The Jason Olson Collection – auctions on eBay to benefit his family

We recently lost Jason Olson, a fellow fan. Those in our community who knew Jason thought very highly of him. Jason was also a huge collector. He had a home full of fantastic items. But this left his family with no clue of what they had, or what to do with it. We at Power-Con and He-Man.Org did not want to see his family taken advantage of and we also wanted to help them in their time of need. So we have worked with the family to list his collection for auction on eBay.

There are all sorts of things to be found. From DC Collectibles, to He-Man, to comic books, and much more, Jason was a well-rounded fan who loved many things. Many items are loose but were taken care of and displayed with affection.

Given the size of Jason’s collection, we are going through and taking some time to analyze what he has. As a result, we’ll be listing 50 to 100 items per week. Therefore, his collection could take around six months to list at auction. New batches will be listed every week, on Monday, starting around 5:30 Pacific time. The first batch is live now!

With a six month span to bid, fans have a lot of time to bid on some excellent collectibles. So if you would like to own some great items that were cherished by a fellow fan, and help out Jason’s loved ones in the process, please check the link below on every Monday and thank you for supporting Jason’s family!

Toy Guide & Character Guide Supplement pre-order is today!

The long awaited official guide to the toys of He-Man and She-Ra arrives from Dark Horse in February 2021, along with a Power-Con exclusive supplemental edition that follows up to the previously released character guide and world compendium.
And pre-orders start today, September 5th, 2020 at 9:00am Pacific Time (UTC -7).

While you can order the Toy Guide from your preferred online vendor, Power-Con is the ONLY place you can get the Character Guide Supplement! And this is your chance to own both in one combo pack.

Both books are 9″ x 12″ in size.
The Toy Guide contains 752 pages.
The Character Guide Supplement contains 168 pages.
Each book is packed in a protective mailer, and then both books are packaged once again inside a box with additional protection. Unless someone decides to play football with your package, or run over it with a truck, the combo should show up safe and sound!

Power-Con does not accept PayPal. Sorry!
For payment, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

There has been a fear of bots pre-ordering all the exclusives. But past Power-Con exclusives have not fallen victim to this and we do not anticipate things changing. The higher price point combined with having a full pre-order inventory available from the start makes the combo pack less interesting to opportunists.

Also, in the interest of transparency, we’re going to break some things down for you on cost.
1. The Toy Guide is $60.00 and the Character Guide supplement is $20.00, for a total of $80.00 for the two books. You can get the toy guide for cheaper from retailers who sell it for less than the suggested retail price, but you won’t be able to get the Character Guide Supplement. The reason we’re charging full price is this is how the creative team gets paid. If you choose to buy the toy guide elsewhere, that is completely up to you and we understand. But purchasing this combo is the only way to help the team who worked for over two years to make these books, and it’s the only way to get the Character Guide Supplement.
2. There is a $10.00 handling fee added to each book combo. This amount of money covers a number of things: freight to get the books from the printer overseas to the USA, packaging materials to pack the combo, and the labor for the team we hire to pack and ship these books.
3. Beyond that, you also have the cost of whatever USPS charges for shipping. That’s a price we cannot control. For orders placed for delivery inside the USA, we have limited the shipping option to Media Mail. It’s slow but it’s cheap. For all orders placed for delivery outside of the USA, due to the weight of the combo, the only method available for shipping is Priority International. And, unfortunately, it is very expensive.
For example for one combo set, the USPS Priority International shipping is around $100.00 to the United Kingdom, around $85.00 to Germany, and around $80.00 to Canada. And the price would have been higher with DHL, FedEx, or UPS.

If the exclusive set does not sell out quickly, and if international fans in different countries would like to join together and organize a bulk order to try and save on shipping, we will be happy to work with you in hopes of finding a solution!

If your combo shows up with notable damage caused by the courier, please contact us with photographs of the damage to the book and the damaged packaging so we can review the situation.
We are not responsible for any custom fees, VAT fees, or any other fee charged to you by the courier delivering you order. Please do not ask us to declare a lower value for customs, as this is not allowed.

Thank you for your interest in the exclusive combo, and for your support of the teams that contributed to these projects!
Click here to pre-order your book combo starting at 9:00am Pacific today, September 5th. The combo pack is currently not listed but will appear when the pre-sale begins.
