Can you believe it's only 21 days until Christmas? I can't, and something tells me that these next three weeks will be flying by faster than a reindeer-powered sleigh full of toys. When I was a kid, I'd always look forward to the possibility of some new TRANSFORMERS under the tree, and another thing I always dug was building bricks. Now, 25+ years later, the folks at Hasbro have combined both of those into a new line of KRE-O TRANSFORMERS that are ready to "roll out" for the kids of 2012. How would you like to win a set?

The folks over at Disney Consumer Products have revealed their list of the Top Ten "Must Have" Holiday Gifts from their own collection. Their official picks come from across the Disney spectrum including Disney·Pixar Cars, Disney Princess character Cinderella, Disney Fairies, Doc McStuffins, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man, Winnie the Pooh and Wreck-It Ralph. The Rock Father has the run-down below, along with pics and a few nudges toward where you can snag some of these items for your own little ones. Some of them are already selling out...

First a story about G.I Joe, and now I get to write about TRANSFORMERS in the same day? Indeed, that's the case as Hasbro has announced that the focus for TRANSFORMERS in 2013 will be TRANSFORMERS PRIME BEAST HUNTERS. With little ones here in The Rock Father house, we're more in RESCUE BOTS mode, but Daddy still checks out the bigger bots on frequent occasion. In fact, I actually own a one-of-a-kind Optimus Prime that came to me direct from the Hasbro Design Team back in '07 (for a little something I did for G4). As for the new BEAST HUNTERS, what are they all about? Read on...

I love G.I. JOE. Growing up in the 80s, I had such a ridiculously extensive collection of the figures and vehicles, and obsession no doubt driven by the cartoon series, which I watched religiously. I never did get that massive 7-foot-long aircraft carrier, though - but a kid down the street had it (I was always envious of that fact). While I don't know if my daughters will ever get into the world of G.I. JOE (though the cartoon has gotten some play), I still enjoy browsing the 'Joe section when we hit Toys "R" Us. That said, there's a new line of G.I. JOE toys coming out next year, and they've got a nod to the past.

Family Game Night is certainly something that I support here at The Rock Father, and as such, I'm always interested in checking out the latest in what Hasbro Games has to offer. One of their latest releases for the 3 and up set is the ELEFUN SNACKIN' SAFARI from their ELEFUN & FRIENDS line.  While we haven't gotten a chance to give this a play-test ourselves (a review is forthcoming), Hasbro Games and The Rock Father are going to hook one lucky reader up with an ELEFUN SNACKIN' SAFARI to enjoy with their own family. Enter for your chance using the Rafflecopter Widget below...

R.I.P. Optimus Prime (1984-2012)

Sad news today as Optimus Prime, leader of the TRANSFORMERS faction known as the 'Autobots' was found dead in Illinois. After a valiant battle, it appears that Prime's final defeat came not at the hands of the rival 'Decepticons,' but within the tight grasp of a car crusher. Photos from the scene can be viewed below, exclusively on The Rock Father.
