On Thursday, October 8th, fans attending the New York Comic Con are in for a treat as the crew of The Ghost arrives with an exclusive sneak peek of what’s to come in the second season of STAR WARS REBELS with a panel featuring special guests plus a preview screening of two new episodes from the series. Check out the details below, which are just-in here at Rock Father HQ...

I've been Teaching The Force THE ROCK FATHER Way™ on an official basis ever since our oldest daughter, Addie, was born back in 2009. Now, in 2015, we've got a pair of Stormtroopers daughters who are becoming well-versed in the ways of a galaxy far, far away. Growing up with STAR WARS the first time around, we had three movies (five if you count the two made-for-tv Ewok movies), and since only a rare few had home video players in those days (mostly VHS or Beta), if you didn't catch those films on the big screen, your viewing options were pretty much limited to cropped versions that would occasionally run on TV. Now, just as it was back then, one of the greatest pieces of the STAR WARS puzzle is how those stories pique the interest and curiosity of those who view them, and how kids' imagination is stimulated and inspired to create their own adventures. To "build" new stories and worlds, if you will.

It is undeniable that one of the breakout characters on Disney XD's STAR WARS REBELS is Sabine Wren. Sporting Mandalorian armor similar to that of Boba Fett, Sabine was one of the most skilled explosives and weapons experts in the early days of the Rebel Alliance. While her story may have unfolded "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away," families still have much to learn about this talented tagger as new episodes of STAR WARS REBELS are set to debut this Fall. Sabine's Mission Series action figure from Hasbro is featured as today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar as we move toward the September 4th release of toys from J.J. Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

If you've paid a visit to the "action" aisles of your local toy retailer recently, there's a solid chance that you've seen MARVEL'S ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN: WEB WARRIORS Toys. The folks at Hasbro have been rolling these out since the spring, and we've actually got quite a few of them here at Rock Father HQ - several of which were featured a few months back in an episode of UNBOXED. But now we're in summer, and with summer comes a ton of role-play fun... the kind that's quite fitting for a #SummerOfMarvel. With Addie on an adventure of her own (truth: she was napping), Little Finn and I went outside to take a look at what Hasbro had bestowed upon us...

Spoiler Alert: On STAR WARS REBELS, The Inquisitor didn't really last very long, did he? But like a Hydra, if you cut off one head, two more will rise in its place, and that's just what's about to happen when the second season of STAR WARS REBELS comes to Disney XD this Fall. Strong in the Dark Side of The Force, but not truly a Sith Lord like Darth Vader, The Inquisitors are feared Jedi hunters in the service of The Empire in the years between REVENGE OF THE SITH and A NEW HOPE. Featured as today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar is the "Hero Series" edition figure - one we don't have in our collection, but we've got plenty of action with his 3 ¾"  counterpart!
