When it comes to getting the license for pretty much everything, Funko has that action on lock, and one need look no further than their growing line of Pop! Vinyls. To a smaller extent, they've also done well with their 3¾" ReAction Figures - those done in a similar style to the Kenner Action Figures (think STAR WARS) of the late 1970s and early 1980s. After taking on some cool properties like Back to the Future and Gremlins, now they're doing figures based on E.T. the Extra Terrestrial

Something strange is going on here... perhaps a resurgence of THE A-TEAM, or just some savvy marketing of the NBC Universal television lineup of the mid 1980s? After the recent announcement that THE A-TEAM and KNIGHT RIDER are coming to LEGO Dimensions (could AIRWOLF be far behind?), Funko has revealed that the crack commando unit is getting the Pop! Vinyl treatment with B.A. Baracus, John "Hannibal" Smith, "Howling Mad" Murdock and Templeton "Faceman" Peck coming to the Pop! Television line in August, followed by THE A-TEAM VAN as a new addition to the Pop! Rides collection in September. All of these are available for pre-order now via my allies over at Entertainment Earth, and since I already have the Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment versions of the famed GMC Van and Face's Chevrolet Corvette in my office here at Rock Father HQ, I have to say that there is a temptation here...

THE ROCK FATHER is a member of #TeamJurassicOn June 12, the park is open, when Universal Pictures' JURASSIC WORLD arrives in theaters everywhere. The fourth film in the JURASSIC PARK franchise, JURASSIC WORLD (get tickets via Fandango) finds Steven Spielberg returning to executive produce director Colin Trevorrow's epic action-adventure based on characters created by author Michael Crichton.  With a cast including Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy, BD Wong and Irrfan Khan, the story follows the fulfillment of everything that JURASSIC PARK was meant to be - and once again, some things that it should not... especially the creation of a highly-intelligent new species genetically engineered in a lab. To celebrate the release of this new film, THE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Universal Pictures as a member of #TeamJurassic, and will be offering readers multiple shots at terrific prize packages in the weeks ahead. First up - a chance to score a trio of Jurassic goods including one (1) Hasbro Velociraptor toy, and a pair (2) of books that should be considered essential reading for the dino-inclined! Lets take a look inside JURASSIC WORLD...

FF LogoOne of my favorite places on the planet is Universal Studios Hollywood - despite having only spent a little under three hours there in February of 2014 on what I dubbed my "World's Fastest One-Man Tour of Universal Studios" (though I have visited Universal CityWalk a few times)The pictures were on my socials as I had just enough time to make my way down the hill to TRANSFORMERS: THE RIDE, back up to the famous park tour (thankfully, no lines!) and a walk around to soak in the vibe before hitting the gift shop and heading for LAX (I'd been in town on a project and the folks at NBC Universal were kind enough to spot me a badge for a quick visit). Now there's even more reason to head back (as if my girls' love of the MINIONS and my wife's HARRY POTTER fixation wasn't enough), as FAST & FURIOUS--SUPERCHARGED has been revealed to be opening on Thursday, June 25, 2015. Today, Universal Studios Hollywood sent over a link of some first-look footage of the new attraction, and you can see it below...
