As the folks at Funko prepare to set their "Jabba's Palace" edition of their STAR WARS Smuggler's Bounty subscription boxes free upon the world, here at Rock Father HQ the time has come to share our unboxing of the most recent installment, "Bounty Hunters." While little Finley of The Rock Daughters™ and I cracked this open weeks ago (big sister Addie was at school), I'm late when it comes to posting, but I assure you that it's probably the cutest unboxing of these that you'll see...

I'm sitting in Los Angeles as I type this, about to head over to Walt Disney Studios on some not-so-secret Rock Father business. While I'm on the Disney lot, of course I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open, hoping to discover some grand secrets about December's release of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, but I can be 99.999% sure that there will be none. As with THE FORCE AWAKENS, official news has been light thus far, but with STAR WARS CELEBRATION: EUROPE coming up and SDCC (which I'm told will not have a ROGUE ONE presence, but ya never know) as well, you can bet the floodgates will soon be open as we head toward fall. ROGUE ONE is an interesting beast, a film that's a prequel by definition (34 years before THE FORCE AWAKENS), but not in the same realm of the infamous George Lucas-helmed "Prequel Trilogy," and today comes some real details.

Are you ready for more STAR WARS? Judging from the response to the first teaser trailer for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, audiences are - even though a few of them need to understand that this is the first big screen STAR WARS film to take place outside of the numeric "Saga" timeline, a story that takes place in the days leading up to the very first STAR WARS film, 1977's A NEW HOPE. There's countless tales yet to be told, and this is exciting - a film that will take audiences back to that familiar time, a time when The Empire was just gearing-up to test the very first Death Star. It's the story of the Rebels who stole the plans for the space station - the very plans that Princess Leia places within R2-D2 at the beginning of the movie that started it all. While the film won't be out until December, the toys will hit this Fall, and this weekend comes the "product packaging reveal" - a look at what all the various licensees will be marketing their products in later this year. Imperial Walkers? TIE Fighters? An imposing new Stormtrooper? I'm in...
