Are you ready to meet the "diverse range of interesting dudes" that Entertainment Earth and Hasbro teased last night? If you guessed that the strange statement was code for DROIDS, you were correct! Coming this November, the STAR WARS: The Black Series Astromech Droids 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures – Entertainment Earth Exclusive is up for pre-order now, a celebration of the entire STAR WARS Saga, and the 10th Anniversary of Entertainment Earth's super-popular, sold-out 2006 Astromech Droid Sets. This sextet of Astromech Droids comes to you in a specially designed R2-D2-shaped box with 3 3/4-inch scale action figures. Each droid sports multiple points of articulation, similar to the collector-favorite figures of The Vintage Collection, with featured Droids being sourced from 1977's STAR WARS, 1983's RETURN OF THE JEDI and the recent animated series, THE CLONE WARS. Each figure includes rolling wheels on their feet, plus jointed domes, ankles, shoulders, and maybe even a few other surprises. Check out the details below, and pre-order now (while supplies last)!
It's a famous story that dates back to the late 1970s - with members of KISS lending their own blood to the ink from which their first standalone comic would be printed. From their 1977 appearance in Howard the Duck #12 and 1978's Marvel Comics Super Special: KISS (the one with the blood), KISS has been in-and-out of print, Now, nearly 40 years later, Dynamite Entertainment has revealed that KISS is coming back into the comic book realm.
If you have yet to see MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG & CAT NOIR, now is the time to to get on-board - especially for those with kids ages 4-12. The French animated series was a from-out-of-nowhere hit that we stumbled upon by accident some months ago here at Rock Father HQ, soon setting it to "series record" on the DVR, and later checking out some of the original episodes (in French) online. The Rock Daughters™ are not alone in their love of MIRACULOUS, with the show already becoming a Top 5 hit for girls on Nickelodeon here in the U.S. (it airs on other networks in a total of 79 countries thus far), and on the cusp over a major breakthrough... and it's starting at Comic-Con International (SDCC) in San Diego this week.
The Hasbro booth tends to be a must-see at any event, and with numerous exclusives and debuts on-deck, their appearance at this year's San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC) is no exception. The crew at Hasbro just sent over details on five new toys from their fall STAR WARS collection, including a pair of new 12" Electronic Duel figures, some new additions to the famed 3.75" figure/vehicle assortments. First up: the one that The Rock Daughters™ immediately zeroed-in on with excitement - Hera Syndulla's A-Wing Fighter from Disney XD's STAR WARS REBELS!
"Exclusive" toys and collectibles are a double-edged sword - on one side they can be fantastic pieces made to mark a special event or occasion, but on the other they can be difficult to get and sometimes a smack in the face to those who would love to own them, but just can't attend the event or afford the ridiculous aftermarket prices. For the summer of 2016, two that fit the bill are the beautiful new STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6" action figures being offered by Hasbro at San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC), FanExpo Canada and STAR WARS Celebration Europe. Yesterday afternoon my friends at Hasbro sent over a look at two new depictions of Obi-Wan Kenobi (A NEW HOPE) and Kylo Ren (THE FORCE AWAKENS), each packaged with some excellent accessories. Take a look...
He was only on screen for a brief glimpse into his underwater lair, but Jason Momoa's Aquaman was for many a highlight cameo in this year's BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Set for a greater appearance in the currently-filming two-part JUSTICE LEAGUE (out next year from Warner Bros. Pictures) before going solo in 2018, the fan-favorite from the world of DC Comics has already received the Funko Pop! Vinyl treatment in a couple of variations, but this summer one of the coolest is coming to market as an Entertainment Earth Exclusive to debut at SDCC! My friends at EE have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine for an exclusive reveal of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Aquaman Patina Pop! Vinyl Figure - Entertainment Earth Convention Exclusive* that's splashing out of the ocean and into your collection!
