Quantcast

With the merger between The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox currently underway, it was only a matter of time before some cross-pollination occurred. While many fans look forward to uniting some missing Marvel characters back with their counterparts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, today we've got our first look at some other opportunities that might present themselves. In the latest trailer for Fox's DEADPOOL 2, Ryan Reynolds takes it upon himself to make up for some unfinished visual FX by acting out scenes with action figures and Hot Wheels. In fact, it looks VERY much like my office here at Rock Father HQ. At one point, Deadpool pays homage to Tom Hanks' Woody from TOY STORY, donning the famous cowboy outfit and telling Cable (Josh Brolin) to "Reach for the sky!" Check it out...

The folks at Hasbro just sent out an early preview of some of the new My Little Pony toys that will debut at New York Toy Fair later this month. The My Little Pony Equestria Girls Friendship Power dolls will play clips from the “Equestria Girls Forever” song by Angelic along with other phrases from the popular YouTube series. Check out the details below...

DEADPOOL 2 will arrive in theaters this May, and while he's technically a character ripped from the pages of Marvel Comics, the antics of the entertaining, yet vulgar hero can make merchandising a little bit tricky. Ryan Reynolds' on-screen portrayal of "The Merc with a Mouth" has spun a lot of attention back toward the source material, and that's had fans and collectors eagerly-awaiting some new gear for 2018. Hasbro is answering the call for older fans, with a new assortment of comic-inspired DEADPOOL toys, including action figures and role-play items... in adult sizes! Check out the official details below, direct from my friends at Hasbro!

For those who collect Hasbro Star Wars action figures in the classic 3.75" scale, you may have noticed what's been called the "home entertainment 4-packs" the past few years. These sets hit retail alongside the in-home releases of each new film on Blu-ray and DVD, and in the past they've included the Takodana Encounter (The Force Awakens) and Jedha Revolt (Rogue One). These have traditionally included some exclusive figures, and for Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes the Battle on Crait 4-pack. Available this spring, my friends at Entertainment Earth just sent over the full details on this new collection which features  Rey (Jedi Apprentice, salt on boots), a First Order Snowtrooper, First Order Gunner, and Rose (Crait Poncho). Check out the box below, and be sure to pre-order yours now!

Last week, I took you inside DreamWorks Animation for a sneak-preview of DreamWorks' Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Now that the first season of the series (and yes, there will be a second - I can confirm that) has been released for streaming on Netflix, it's time to delve even deeper into the world of the Trolls, and that means going off-screen to look at the latest toys from my friends at Hasbro, who are bringing Troll Village to life with a whole new collection. DreamWorks and Hasbro recently sent us an assortment for review here in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ, but before we get going on that, lets first take a look at the new Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Season 1 Featurette, in which Skylar Astin (voice of Branch) and Amanda Leighton (voice of Poppy) throw down some details about their new adventures...

As I've mentioned before, the accelerated release schedule of new Star Wars movies can lead to some problems when it comes to the logistics and distribution of new toys - particularly those that are assorted. While it seems like it's been better lately, new action figures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi are about to start running into a squeeze when Hasbro releases new product tied to Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story and the long-awaited return of their Star Wars: The Vintage Collection line. As they did with Rogue One, my friends at Entertainment Earth aim to help kids and collectors looking for the hard-to-find characters by bringing in a trio of exclusives to finish up The Last Jedi-branded run. From Hasbro's 3¾" Action Figure collection comes a First Order Flame Trooper, Resistance Pilot C'ai Threnalli and the Finn vs. Captain Phasma 2-Pack (with Finn in First Order disguise)! You won't find these at a store near you!
