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!

As Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer (MGM) & Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment continue celebrating the 90th Anniversary of MGM, they've teamed with La Boca to create a new series of iconic posters commemorating the studio.

You might not immediately associate this year's remake of the 1987 hit, ROBOCOP, with Fatherhood - but in a weird way, it's a movie with emotional elements completely tied to being a Dad. While I'll go into that in more detail in my formal review, what I can tell you is that Joel Kinnaman does a fine job of portraying a Father that's dealing with some extraordinary circumstances... but this is ROBOCOP, and it's also a fine action film that movie-minded Dads will dig. With that, my friends at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and I have teamed-up to bring you a giveaway for Rock Father's Day 2014. One of you will score the just-released Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD combo pack!
