Factory in association with Hasbro Studios will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME: PREDACONS RISING, a 90-minute epilogue to the recently-concluded, TRANSFORMERS PRIME. To gear up for the release, Shout!

On December 3, Shout! Factory in association with Hasbro Studios will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME: SEASON THREE - BEAST HUNTERS on Blu-Ray and DVD in collectible, 2-disc sets.

With the Emmy-Nominated THE AQUABATS! SUPER SHOW! making a triumphant return to The Hub for Season Two (airing Saturdays at 1pm ET | 10am PT), THE ROCK FATHER caught up with Drummer RICKY FITNESS and Co-Creator/Executive Producer/Writer/Director JASON deVILLIERS to get the low-down on the Bats' latest and future adventures on the screen (and the stereo!), along with some rock-infused discussion about possible AQUABATS! Action Figures, secret weapons, and hidden rooms within the Battle Tram. And, with Father's Day fast-approaching, these three "Rock Fathers" have to show some love for their kids...
TRANSFORMERS will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary next year (I have many Transformers stories to share), and to kick things off, for the first time ever, Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS) is inviting kids and longtime fans to help design a new Transformers character that will forever become a part of TF lore. The "Fan Built Bot" promotion officially starts today, and in the end... the new character created with input from the world will be made into an action figure that will be offered in the 2014 "Thrilling 30" line of toys.
I know a lot of you that read The Rock Father are fans of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. Even if you're not a fan yourself (Perhaps you're a Brony? Maybe you're a Pegasister?), there's a strong likelihood that your kids are (like mine), so the world of Equestria is still a part of your life. Knowing that a lot of Rock Father friends are into MLP, the folks over at Mimoco sent over a brand-new Rainbow Dash MIMOBOT - an 8GB USB Flash Drive customized as the colorful pony, complete with her prism-spectrum mane, lightning-cloud cutie mark, and undeniable charisma. If you're lucky, Rainbow Dash will soon make a journey from Rock Father HQ to your house.
Last year, legendary rockers and kings of cross-merchandising, KISS teamed up with Sanrio for a line of "KISS x Hello Kitty" products. A lot of hardcore rock fans balked at the idea, but the line was hugely successful - so much that it's spawned a new TV series that's in-development at The Hub right now. KISS Hello Kitty (working title) "will feature the four KISS x Hello Kitty characters living their rock 'n' roll dreams and bringing pink anarchy to every situation they are in."
