LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest, the only pop culture and toy show that did not skip a year during 2020’s COVID-19 global pandemic, is returning to Simi Valley, California. The full-day celebration of comic books, action figures, toy collecting, memorabilia, and more is celebrating the return of on-site, indoor events at the Grand Vista Hotel on Sunday July 18th, 2021.

Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest is welcoming Guest Artist Michael Swanigan, whose work in the cartoon industry spans decades. As a storyboard artist on some of your favorite 80s and 90s childhood relics, Michael is a wealth of knowledge and filled with stories describing how your favorite shows were created. Visit him in the Artist Alley!

Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest has a special surprise for its attendees—for the first time at an event we are hosting Simi Mini Command Center, a room filled exclusively with Power Rangers guests and celebrities! With Simi Valley, CA being the home of the original House of the Book building (most famously used as the exterior of the Command Center in the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers), we knew we had to pay homage to Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest’s Hometown and give residents a Power Rangers experience they would not forget!

Simi Mini Command Center Power Rangers Celebrity Guests include:

  • Brennan Mejia: Power Rangers Dino Charge Red Ranger
  • William Shewfelt: Power Rangers Ninja Steel Red Ranger
  • Rorrie D. Travis: Power Rangers Beast Morphers Red Ranger
  • Liana Ramirez: Villain Roxy in Power Rangers Beast Morphers
  • Colby Strong: Villain Blaze in Power Rangers Beast Morphers
  • Abraham Rodriguez: Nate Silva in Power Rangers Beast Morphers

And in his FIRST EVER CONVENTION APPEARANCE, Actor and Voice Actor Richard Cansino, best known to Power Rangers fans as the voice of the monstrous KING SPHINX!

Bring those Lightning Collection figures to get signed because there is so much Morphinomenal Madness happening only at Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest!

To show our love for the community, our excitement for the return of indoor events, and ensure that everyone who wants to come to the event has the opportunity, tickets for Simi Valley Toy and Comic Fest 2021 are only $5 at the door. Children twelve and under are free.
