For the first-time ever, I will be attending Comic-Con International in San Diego - but for one day only (stay tuned for details). There's gonna be a lot to take in (though I won't be there just as a fan) and one must-visit booth will be from Hasbro. Today comes yet another exclusive announcement, this one coming from the Netflix Original Series, Marvel's Defenders. The Marvel Legends Series Defenders Rail Authority 5-Pack will be available first at booth #3329 at SDCC, followed by some being made available in select quantities at additional conventions at at HasbroToyShop.com. See the full piece below!

There was some big news from DC Comics this week as the full details on their DC UNIVERSE streaming service arrived. But it's not just a streaming service, but "a first-of-its kind digital subscription service that gives fans access to exclusive content and experiences not available anywhere else. With membership, fans will enjoy all-new original live-action and animated series, classic TV series and films, a curated selection of digital comic books, breaking news, an expansive DC-centric encyclopedia, and access to exclusive merchandise." The latter piece is going to be a big one for toy fans and collectors, and the first piece of that will be a brand-new series of 6" Justice League Animated action figures. Here's what the folks at DC Collectibles had to say about that...

Cartoon Network's Ben 10 is one thing that I'd thought I'd missed due to the age of my kids, and then it got rebooted and became a big hit here at Rock Father HQ with a great show on Cartoon Network, some awesome toys from Playmates Toys and a pretty entertaining video game.. Now comes news that the coolest alien-powered kid hero has a new DVD collection coming home, with Ben 10: Omni-Tricked arriving on September 18, 2018. Fans can revisit the adventures from Cartoon Network’s hit animated series with 16 action-packed episodes and a 44-minute special. Following Ben and his family as they go on a cross-country road trip, fans will embark on a fun, extraterrestrial animated journey. Officially, this is Season One, Volume Two.

On August 9, 2019, Sony Pictures will release the ninth feature film from writer/director Quentin Tarantino. Today comes the first official photo from the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor...Sharon Tate.

One of my favorite things of 2018 so far has been Nintendo Labo. I first played it at the 115th North American International Toy Fair in NYC, and upon launch we had a set delivered direct to Rock Father HQ from my friends at Nintendo. Labo is something that's hard to really grasp without playing it hands-on, and as we now know, it's an experience that Nintendo intends to have around for a long time to come. The possibilities are unexpected, and perhaps endless, and this week one of the most popular games for the Switch just became Nintendo Labo compatible. Ready for a whole new way to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Grab the Toy Con motorbike handlebars and get ready to race! Check out the video below...
