With Star Wars Day falling on a Monday this year, the folks at Toys "R" Us got their action going a day early (Sunday, May 3) with a special LEGO build in which kids were able to build and take home a miniature LEGO STAR WARS Wookiee Gunship and an exclusive comic book - both completely free. While TRU has been doing cool in-store events for awhile, this is just a small piece of a larger initiative that looks to get families into the stores and build excitement for the forthcoming release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS this December. We attended at our local store yesterday, and while Addie was completely into the LEGO build, both girls enjoyed seeing their old friend, Geoffrey, and Little Miss Finley was really digging the larger-scale STAR WARS figures by JAKKS Pacific... greeting each one, which is something she's done on each of our past few TRU visits. Take a look...

LEGO Shop at HomeSo much STAR WARS news lately, so if by some chance you're not into STAR WARS, you're gonna have some things to ignore. For those of you that are completely down with The Force, the folks at LEGO got in touch earlier today with a look at something they'll be offering up at STAR WARS CELEBRATION in Anaheim next week - posters for all six films in the existing STAR WARS Saga, each done in LEGO Star Wars style. Each of these will feature a common back - a one-sheet for Disney XD's forthcoming LEGO Star Wars DROID TALES. Take a peek...

For all the goodness that LEGO STAR WARS has brought fans over the past 16 years, it's almost surprising that one thing that they haven't done until now is re-tell the actual STAR WARS Story. That changes later this year when Disney XD will air LEGO STAR WARS: DROID TALES, a five-episode mini-series that will re-tell the STAR WARS Saga through the eyes of C-3PO and R2-D2, beginning with a gathering of Original Trilogy heroes after the Battle of Endor following RETURN OF THE JEDI. After the two Droids tell their story leading up to the beginning of THE PHANTOM MENACE, "an accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga."

Alright, so I'm a little bit late in posting this week's new release listing. But, it's still Tuesday for a couple more hours here at Rock Father HQ, so I figure I'm still within my own self-imposed limits. After all, who do I work for? That's right, myself! Well, but technically, (everything I do) I do it for you - like Bryan Adams' terrible song from that ROBIN HOOD movie with Clark Kent's Dad. Now I'm just being silly, but if you're looking for what's new in home video releases this week, then I have what you need... highlights of all the family titles that have arrived at retail as of today. There's TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, LEGO STAR WARS, WINNIE THE POOH, TRANSFORMERS and more. Check out the list below!
