Quantcast

As we roll into Toy Fair in New York, news is hitting hard... you could even say that we're slammin' over here. One tidbit of data comes from what's no doubt one of my favorite aisles - the action aisle, with news that The NPD Group reports that WWE had the #1 selling action figure in the U.S. in 2017, surpassing all action figure sales of other major entertainment brands and blockbuster films.* On one hand, that seems a bit surprising, but I have seen quite a few of my daughters' friends with WWE figures on a regular basis, and Mattel's new line of Superstar Dolls has also been a big hit here at home. Check out more from this morning's joint press release from WWE and Mattel...

Giveaway: Win a FERDINAND Movie Prize Pack!

From Blue Sky Studios and Carlos Saldanha, the director of RIO,  and inspired by the beloved book THE STORY OF FERDINAND by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, FERDINAND is a new animated feature that tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. Starring WWE Superstar John Cena as the voice of Ferdinand, the film weaves a tale of a dangerous beast... or, a bull that's been mistaken for a dangerous beast, leading to his capture and removal from his home. Set in Spain, FERDINAND follows this friendly bull as he rallies a misfit team to embark on the ultimate adventure home. Now, in celebration of its release, 20th Century Fox, Blue Sky Studios and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a chance to win a FERDINAND Prize Pack! The movie is already getting great buzz, with Nick Jonas snagging a Golden Globe nomination for his original song, "Home." Check out the trailer below...

There's been a fantastic trend over the past couple of years where the doll aisle has been receiving some action-packed upgrades. The recent successes of Mattel's DC Super Hero Girls and Hasbro's Star Wars: Forces of Destiny have fueled that, and now we have the WWE Fashion Superstars line. Also from Mattel, we have the same two-pronged approach that they've taken with the DC line - a collection of articulated 11-12" action dolls, along with a collection of 6" action figures. An assortment of these dolls recently arrived at Rock Father HQ, where they became an easy choice for a top pick in my annual Holiday Wish Guide™. Check out the video and review below...

At the start of tonight's Monday Night RAW, WWE paid tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a two-minute video in celebration of MLK Day 2017. If you missed it, or would just like to see it again, check out the video below, right here on The Rock Father™ Magazine...

TMNT x WWE Ninja Superstars Hit the Streets!

After being unveiled at New York Comic-Con last month, the first-ever collaboration between WWE and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has hit the streets! The TMNT Ninja Superstars line of action figures from Playmates Toys is available exclusively at Walmart as of this week, a wave of four figures that feature Mikey, Leo, Raph and Donnie decked-out in full ring garb in tribute to their favorite WWE Superstars.

Christmas might be over, but there's still one last piece of the Holiday puzzle that I'd been waiting to post here on the site - one that bridges the year-long gap between Christmases. This year, WWE Studios and Fox Home Entertainment partnered for SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER (covered previously), a new Holiday Movie starring WWE  Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, WWE Diva Paige and AnnaLynne McCord (DALLAS, NIP/TUCK). Beneath the "holiday hijinks" was an underlying message of doing good, and what it truly means to be "Santa's Little Helper." There's five "Sugarplum Virtues" from the film that completely apply to parenting small children, and making sure that they maintain their spot on "The 'Nice' List" all year 'round!
