Foust will be in Despain's hot seat and reveals his uncanny talent for driving almost anything on wheels propelling him to an elite status among the world's best in rally, drift, and stunts.

The December 18 release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is fast-approaching, and it was "Force Friday" that ushered-in a new era of STAR WARS toys and collectibles. Over the past two years, Mattel has been releasing an ever-expanding and impressive fleet of STAR WARS vehicles - from "Character Cars" to screen-accurate Starships, from limited-edition high-end collectibles to retailer-exclusive rides that are simply "inspired by" the Saga we all know and love. Today I'm sharing the latter by giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine a shot at winning one (1) complete set of 2015 Hot Wheels STAR WARS Faction Series Vehicles by Mattel! There's eight vehicles in all, each packaged in matching artwork inspired by a Faction from a galaxy far, far away. Check this out...

Today (if you're reading this on September 26) is BATMAN DAY, an International Holiday created by DC Comics to celebrate The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader... whatever you want to call BATMAN in any and all of his many forms. Growing up, SUPERMAN was always my #1 hero until the "summer of Batman" happened in 1989 and proceeded to give Bruce Wayne's alter-ego a nudge to the forefront. Over the years, I've had some cool BATMAN experiences - from seeing The Tumbler in-action on the set of Christopher Nolan's BATMAN BEGINS in 2004, to putting on the cape and cowl for Halloween last year. This year, I'm celebrating BATMAN DAY by giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine a shot at winning one (1) of two (2) complete sets of 2015 Hot Wheels BATMAN Series Vehicles by Mattel! There's six iconic vehicles in all, each packaged in matching artwork. Check this out...

We're pretty big fans of the "Character Cars" that Mattel has been releasing as part of their Hot Wheels line for the past few years, and while we're not quite "completists," there is one pairing that was quite hard to resist. When a car inspired by GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Rocket Raccoon hit the streets (featured here back in January), it didn't even cross my mind that the big blastin' Rocket would eventually gain a true companion vehicle based upon his tall friend Groot. While the idea of a Groot car was certainly a given, making it into an actual, functional companion piece is what the designers at Mattel pulled off, and the results are fantastic. Hitting the pegs of your favorite toy emporium this month is the Hot Wheels Groot, and he's joined our fleet here at Rock Father HQ. Take a look!

Step2 Brand AmbassadorAs a Step2 Brand Ambassador, I've had the joy of bringing you a ton of news, reviews and features on new products from The Step2 Company over these past few years. For Fall 2015, we're going a little bit bigger, and I'm helping to drop the curtain on 11 new products (MADE IN THE USA*) destined to be sought-after by children, and almost certain to make several Hot Holiday Toy lists (a few will be in my own Holiday Wish Guide). The lineup is impressive, and we're inviting all of you to share in our excitement by taking part in a very special giveaway - one in which the winner will get their choice of which item they'll receive from the Fall 2015 reveals! Ready to rock? 

Mattel has been doing some really fun things with Hot Wheels lately, one of which are multiple series' of vehicles with themes rooted in pop culture history. Many of these are retailer exclusives that are offered as sort of a "one-and-done" thing - a big shipment arrives in one shot, and when they're gone, they're gone. For families and casual collectors, sometimes completing a full set is a challenge, as there tends to be one or two hard-to-find cars in the set. Recently, Hot Wheels issued a six-car, Tom & Jerry 75th Anniversary Series that was created to commemorate the MGM Cartoons that won Academy Awards from 1940-1957. I've recently acquired a set, and I'm giving all of you a chance to win it, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine!
