Star Wars: Forces of DestinyThere was some buzz awhile back that Star Wars: Episode VIII would be called "Forces of Destiny," after some astute internet sleuths dug up some fairly recent trademark registrations on that name. After the announcement came for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a few folks were left scratching their heads, but now it's all revealed! STAR WARS: FORCES OF DESTINY was just announced by Disney and Lucasfilm as "a new initiative celebrating the inspiring stories of iconic heroes from across the Star Wars universe." The movement features "an original series of animated shorts (each 2-3 minutes in length) that will explore exciting, all new adventures of key characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano and others, ahead of books and a TV special later in the year. The stories will also be supported by a line of toys from Hasbro, including new ‘Adventure Figures’ – a fusion between traditional dolls and action figures, creating a whole new way to play Star Wars." Check out an early preview and the full announcement below!

Spring is a great time for new toys, and as parents and kids are hitting the stores looking for the latest offerings from their favorite characters, right now you can find some fresh gear from Equestria. Perfect for Easter Baskets and imaginative play comes thew new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Rarity Fashion Runway Playset from Hasbro. With the seventh season of the hit series kicking-off on Discovery Family, plus My Little Pony: The Movie on the way, The Rock Father™ and Hasbro are going to spread some magic by getting two (2) lucky readers hooked-up with playsets of their own! It's a playset we have here at HQ, and my youngest daughter loves it!

It's always a weird thing with Star Wars - the tendency to read too much into things, but aside from decades of separation and the 40th Anniversary of the franchise, I have to wonder if there's a connection between the two big Hasbro reveals today. Just hours after unveiling details on their Star Wars The Black Series Rey and Speeder (see it here), now comes news of The Black Series X-34 Landspeeder and 6-Inch Luke Skywalker figure. On display at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, this new set will be at retail this fall, with a suggested retail price of $59.99.

On June 23, the fifth film in Michael Bay's cinematic TRANSFORMERS franchise hits theaters, and it's going to be a Transformers tale unlike any we've seen before. In the latest trailer for TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, we see Optimus Prime called upon by his maker (if you recall, "the makers" wanted him back in the last film) and is seemingly reprogrammed to be an enemy of the human race. The Transformers have been here for years, and a call is out to "rethink history," as the Autobots and Decepticons have ties to The Knights of the Roundtable, the Nazi Empire, the Samurai warriors of Japan and more. Take a look...

#SWCO: Hasbro's Black Series Rey and Speeder

Star Wars Celebration Orlando is getting underway this week, and thus we're preparing for an onslaught of fresh news from around the Star Wars Galaxy to come rolling into Rock Father HQ... probably faster than I can keep up. One of the first reveals hit yesterday, with the debut of a new set from Hasbro - STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES REY’S SPEEDER (JAKKU) & REY (SCAVENGER) Figure. Set to hit retail this fall with a suggested price of $59.99, this gorgeous set features an all-new, highly-articulated figure of Daisy Ridley's Rey, alongside a detailed version of her speeder from JJ Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Just as the weekend was getting under way, Kabam and Hasbro officially launched TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, a new high-definition, action-fighting RPG mobile game. For the first time ever, Transformers fans and mobile gamers everywhere are able to build their Transformers team and battle with the most iconic Autobots and Decepticons from nearly every era of the storied franchise’s 30-plus year history. TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight is now available on the iOS App Store and for Android on Google Play. Check out the launch trailer and "Showdown" videos below...
