The First Order or Resistance? It's the Hot Wheels STAR WARS Faction Series Giveaway!

The December 18 release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is fast-approaching, and it was "Force Friday" that ushered-in a new era of STAR WARS toys and collectibles. Over the past two years, Mattel has been releasing an ever-expanding and impressive fleet of STAR WARS vehicles - from "Character Cars" to screen-accurate Starships, from limited-edition high-end collectibles to retailer-exclusive rides that are simply "inspired by" the Saga we all know and love. Today I'm sharing the latter by giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine a shot at winning one (1) complete set of 2015 Hot Wheels STAR WARS Faction Series Vehicles by Mattel! There's eight vehicles in all, each packaged in matching artwork inspired by a Faction from a galaxy far, far away. Check this out...


Prepare to Cruise GOTHAM: It's the 2015 Hot Wheels BATMAN Series Giveaway!

Today (if you're reading this on September 26) is BATMAN DAY, an International Holiday created by DC Comics to celebrate The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader... whatever you want to call BATMAN in any and all of his many forms. Growing up, SUPERMAN was always my #1 hero until the "summer of Batman" happened in 1989 and proceeded to give Bruce Wayne's alter-ego a nudge to the forefront. Over the years, I've had some cool BATMAN experiences - from seeing The Tumbler in-action on the set of Christopher Nolan's BATMAN BEGINS in 2004, to putting on the cape and cowl for Halloween last year. This year, I'm celebrating BATMAN DAY by giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine a shot at winning one (1) of two (2) complete sets of 2015 Hot Wheels BATMAN Series Vehicles by Mattel! There's six iconic vehicles in all, each packaged in matching artwork. Check this out...


Review: Air Hogs STAR WARS Remote Control X-Wing Starfighter

Holiday Wish GuideWhen "Force Friday" arrived on September 4th, families couldn't wait to get their hands on some of the latest STAR WARS toys, many of which are inspired by or based upon J.J. Abrams' forthcoming STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (opening December 18). With mostly radio silence leading into release day, many had questions about some of the more unique, and in some cases higher-dollar toys that had arrived on-shelves - things well beyond the usual realm of action figures. Spin Master jumped into a galaxy far, far away with a host of new items - their first run as a STAR WARS licensee. From their Air Hogs line came two of the most talked-about - a Millennium Falcon Quad, and a Remote Control X-Wing Starfighter. With both of those having been sent to Rock Father HQ for review, we've spent some time with them and are ready to file a report. Up first is the X-Wing Fighter that's unmistakably based on Luke Skywalker's "Red Five" from 1977's STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE.
