From the Department of "Cool Stuff from Cool Events I Won't Be Attending This Year" comes a fresh announcement from the folks at Hallmark. Starting this week at STAR WARS CELEBRATION in Anaheim, the Hallmark crew will be serving-up pop culture exclusives at some of 2015's most important pop culture events including Comic-Con International (San Diego Comic-Con of SDCC), New York Comic-Con (NYCC) and Disney's D23 Expo. Check out the full slate below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER!
Last month, the annual Comic-Con International took place in San Diego, and with it came a ton of exclusive toys and collectibles. One such goodie came from the folks at Shout! Factory, who just this month released SLUGTERRA: RETURN OF THE ELEMENTALS into theaters Nationwide through Screenvision. Fans of SLUGTERRA are no doubt familiar with the feisty little infurnus slug called Burpy, and right now Shout! Factory and THE ROCK FATHER are giving you a chance to win an SDCC-Exclusive Burpy figurine! It would make a cool gift for SLUGTERRA fans, or a great addition to any collector's arsenal.
Ahhh yes, the end of July. As many of you know, the annual Comic-Con International just wrapped-up in San Diego this past weekend, bringing together the best in pop culture fandom under one roof. While I was not there, I still covered some of the news here on THE ROCK FATHER, all while intently keeping an eye on all things super - because, at the end of the day, it's still Comic-Con, and while it's everything entertainment at this point, the event has a history rooted in the panels of comic books. With that in mind, I'm putting a post-SDCC spin on my Netflix #StreamTeam column this month, highlighting some comic-based, heroic content for you to enjoy with the family on nearly any device.
MARVEL's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY doesn't hit theaters for another week, but that's not stopping a bold announcement - On July 28, 2017, Walt Disney Pictures will release it's sequel. Filmmaker James Gunn and star Chris Pratt dropped the news earlier today at Comic-Con International in San Diego. I have some high hopes for the film (had to pass on an advance screening), and the confidence of the studio just solidifies that. Check out more details on the upcoming GUARDIANS below, and check back later this week for a look at Hasbro's new line of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY toys, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.
Fans at Comic-Con International in San Diego have no shortage of The Force this week, with some pretty incredible STAR WARS-themed offerings around every turn. The buzz is big for Disney's STAR WARS REBELS, and a new two-and-a-half minute look at the upcoming animated series has been released, and while there's a lot of goodies for new fans and old ones alike, I think we can all agree that C-3PO and R2-D2 just tie the whole Saga together. Take a look...
It's that time of year again, the week when everything awesome in pop culture gets a massive spotlight shone upon it at the annual Comic-Con International in San Diego. This year, LEGO is rolling into the convention center with the big guns out - showing off incredible new offerings from their pop culture brands, including STAR WARS, DC COMICS, MARVEL, THE HOBBIT, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, MIXELS, and of course, THE LEGO MOVIE. I wish I was going this year, if only to get a look at the new LEGO Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's DARK KNIGHT Trilogy, and to pick-up the Classic 1966 Batmobile set - which is real, and not one of the fan designs that keeps getting touted. Take a look at the full LEGO lineup below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.
