THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Three Months 'Till Father's Day: Will The Force Be With Your Special Dad?

It's hard to believe, but THE ROCK FATHER (as a website) will enter it's fourth year of operation on Father's Day 2014, and today something landed in my inbox that has "Father's Day" written all over it... especially for Dads that are down with the Dark Side, just as I. I'm talking STAR WARS, and I'm talking Vader here... but as a Father - straight outta Jeffrey Brown's adorable books, DARTH VADER AND SON and VADER'S LITTLE PRINCESS. Just in-time for Father's Day 2014, Gentle Giant will bring these stories to life with a pair of limited edition maquette and book bundles, each limited to just 1,500 pieces. They'd make perfect gifts, and can be pre-ordered now via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Check 'em out below...

STAR WARS: VADER'S LITTLE PRINCESS MAQUETTE Statue

vaderleiaGentle Giant Ltd. and Chronicle Books are proud to bring the hilarious and sweet VADER's LITTLE PRINCESS comic to life! The artisans at Gentle Giant Studios have captured the hilarious and sweet comic re-imagining Darth Vader as a dad like any other - except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Traditionally sculpted by the Artisans at Gentle Giant Studios, no detail has been overlooked on this Star Wars Vader's Little Princess Maquette Statue. Based on Jeffrey Brown's Vader's Little Princess book; this individually hand-numbered cold-cast polystone collectible has a bottom stamp with a matching certificate of authenticity and is a limited edition of 1,500 pieces. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include Leia's embarrassment at being dropped off at school in an AT-AT Walker, learning to pilot a TIE Fighter, boyfriends ("Rebel scum!"), and the special bond shared between any father and daughter. This fantastic limited edition, hand-numbered collectible maquette comes with an exclusive edition of the Vader's Little Princess book with 16-page signature of the original black and white concept sketches from Jeffrey Brown! These sketches have not been released to the public until now, and are exclusive to this boxed set, and it even comes with a full-color illustration from Jeffrey Brown printed on the board and packaged in a vellum sleeve. The book cover and spine will be printed with color foil stamps and spot gloss varnish.
