It's been 26 years since Home Alone first hit theaters, and with the holiday season entering full-swing once more, families around the world will soon be catching up with Kevin McCallister and The Wet Bandits. Following last year's excellent Ultimate Collector's Edition of the five films in the Home Alone series, this year we spin back to where it all started, thanks to a new collection of bobbleheads released by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee. Designed and created by the team at NECA under license from 20th Century Fox, this trio of "Head Knockers" is one of the instances where the real product looks even better in person than it does in marketing materials - these are fantastic.
It was November 16, 1990 that audiences first experienced John Hughes' HOME ALONE on the big-screen. With a cinematic return set for this November to celebrate its 25th Anniversary, families can get that big-screen experience once more... but for repeat enjoyment at home (alone, if you choose), there's the just-released HOME ALONE 25th Anniversary Collection. Packaged in a limited edition paint can, you get all five movies in the HOME ALONE Saga (the first two of which are on Blu-ray, the rest on DVD), packaged with fun prop replicas and trinkets that add to the holiday fun. As an early entry into my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, my friends at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and I are getting one lucky reader a set of their own (MSRP: $69.99)! Plus, I did a live unboxing via Periscope (hence, not HD) that's been captured and uploaded to YouTube - so you can see exactly what's in the set, and hear my commentary on each piece. Ready to enter?
When it comes to holiday movies, its no secret that I have a real soft spot for them. One of the greatest is also very much a "Chicago" movie, and one written by a local icon - the late John Hughes. HOME ALONE turns 25 this year, and the folks at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are releasing a collection that I'm officially adding to my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER - the HOME ALONE 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collection! This new set features all five films in the HOME ALONE franchise, along with some cool collectibles that come packed-in a paint can.
