With just over a year to go until Warner Bros.' BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE comes to theaters, there's still plenty of time to speculate just how this superhero rumble will play out. One theory that's recently hit the web comes in the form of a fan-made video by BrickFlix utilizing the ever-popular LEGO style. What does Ben Affleck (still "the bomb in PHANTOMS, yo!") have to do with this Gotham City smackdown? You'll have to watch the video and see for yourself.

Robot Chicken'Tis the season... to be mischievous! Or so says that annual visitor from the North Pole, the jovial chap in the red stocking cap, but not the man named 'Claus." I'm speaking, of course, about The Elf on the Shelf. While a family tradition for many, these "scout elves" are known to move around one's home acting as a sentry for Santa Claus himself, reporting on who's been naughty and nice in the weeks ahead of the big day, Christmas. These good elves are noble in their duties, but as sites like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post (who practically has an entire section of Elf-related snark) have shown us over and over again... there's some bad elves in the bunch. With that, THE ROCK FATHER has teamed-up with ROBOT CHICKEN and [adult swim] to give YOU a chance to say #EffTheElf! This is your chance to have some fun taking pictures of your own dolls and action figures out-elfing those effing elves, and in the process gain a chance to win an ultra-rare [adult swim] stocking packed with ROBOT CHICKEN goodies, including the new ROBOT CHICKEN CHRISTMAS SPECIALS DVD from Warner Home Video! Get out your camera and your toys... it's time to play and do a little toyography!

Holiday 2014LITTLEST PET SHOP has had quite the renaissance over the past few years, the Kenner toy line of the 80s re-imagined by Hasbro, entertaining new generations of kids through a cross-platform approach led by the Hasbro Studios-produced TV series that first aired on the late Hub Network, and now runs weekdays on The Discovery Family Channel. We've long had some of the toys here at Rock Father HQ, complimented by the Shout! Factory DVD collections, and for Holiday 2014 there's what just may be the ultimate LPS toy - the LITTLEST PET SHOP Style Set, the pet shop itself, presented in an interlocking form that allows kids to add additional buildings to create their own city block. That said, LPS takes it's place in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.

Strange things can happen when you're just minding your own business and trying to do a little "toyography" - hoping to create some stylish pictures of my children's toys. Last night, while the girls and I were playing downstairs, I decided to attempt a couple of cool-looking shots involving a couple of figures from Hasbro's STAR WARS collection - namely C-3PO and R2-D2. What happened next is that one of our dogs - the one named Harry Potter (my wife is a big J.K. Rowling fan) - decided it was time to drop himself right into the shot, rolling into frame (seen above) and standing to attention (seen below). He either ruined the shot, or made it better. Perhaps these really ARE the Droids he was looking for... or perhaps The Force was strong with him? Take a look, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

I've really been getting into the art of "Toyography" lately - a love of toys and photography coming together for fun results. Many of my photos involve toy vehicles, and they're usually posted on Instagram and Facebook for immediate viewing. It's no secret that we have a big love of Mattel's Hot Wheels line here at Rock Father HQ, and one recent photo I snapped even snagged the attention of the Hot Wheels team themselves, getting reposted on all of their official social networks. Since people seem to enjoy viewing these just as much as I enjoy taking them, I think it's only proper to share them here on THE ROCK FATHER on occasion, and today I'm starting with this - The Hot Wheels Pop Culture Series Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo '70 Chevelle Delivery. This photo was taken this morning, with the full Mystery Inc. Gang present to stand guard...
