This past Christmas, one of the big hits featured in my Holiday Gift Guide was the BATTROBORG 3-in-1 Battle Arena by TOMY. In the months since passed, Battroborg has really been taking on a sort of "cult following," with the most hardest of hardcore seeking out import 'Bots from Japan, and eagerly-awaiting the Stateside release of the upcoming BATTROBORG WARRIORS. With Father's Day fast-approaching (June 15th - also the Anniversary of THE ROCK FATHER as a website), TOMY and I are teaming up to give you a chance to WIN the original BATTROBORG 3-in-1 Battle Arena... the same model I featured here on the site last Fall. It's a great gift idea, and as such, Walmart has it at a new low price of just $59.97 (that's $20 off the original retail). One (1) lucky reader is gonna score one, right here on the site. Details below...

It's hard to believe, but THE ROCK FATHER (as a website) will enter it's fourth year of operation on Father's Day 2014, and today something landed in my inbox that has "Father's Day" written all over it... especially for Dads that are down with the Dark Side, just as I. I'm talking STAR WARS, and I'm talking Vader here... but as a Father - straight outta Jeffrey Brown's adorable books, DARTH VADER AND SON and VADER'S LITTLE PRINCESS. Just in-time for Father's Day 2014, Gentle Giant will bring these stories to life with a pair of limited edition maquette and book bundles, each limited to just 1,500 pieces. They'd make perfect gifts, and can be pre-ordered now via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check 'em out below...

About a year ago, ALEX MITNICK (the "Alex" from ALEX & THE KALEIDOSCOPE BAND) became a "Rock Father" himself, ushering in the birth of his son, Baby Miles. In celebration of his little one, Alex has written an entire album for him (and you!) called LOVE SONGS FOR MY BABY. Set for release this Father's Day (also the anniversary of this site), Alex is giving listeners an early taste with the release of the first single, "Feelin' Fine." Check out the beautiful video below, and keep reading for details on how you can help spread the music, and score a FREE DOWNLOAD for your own collection!

Father's Day is a special day for me, not because we "need" a holiday to celebrate being a Dad (I do that every day), but because of the significance that this weekend will forever hold for us personally here at Rock Father HQ. It was two years ago today that I flipped the switch on this website and posted my first entry as THE ROCK FATHER. While this site celebrates it's 2nd Anniversary, this weekend also marks my 4th Father's Day as a Dad, and more importantly, the 1st Birthday of my youngest daughter, who turned one yesterday. Yep, she rocks so hard that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had to copy us and pop out their little one on June 15 as well.
