Within the past couple of years, the "blind" toy craze has been picking up steam. From blind bags and blind boxes, to mystery eggs, surprise eggs and now capsules, there's something for just about interest, and the latest toymaker to get in on the action is ZURU Toys. With licenses from Disney, the first ones to hit retail were the Disney FROZEN Capsules back in January, and the next batch that's shipping now are based some heavy-hitters from MARVEL - Ultimate Spider-man and Avengers Assemble. This is the first time I've ever received a shipment of toys direct from the factory in China, so I actually had to go to FedEx to pick them up - their arrival being a complete mystery to me as well (I had no idea they were coming). What was inside? Let's take a look at the MARVEL Capsules Assortment...

All is not well in the MARVEL Universe... at least not in the latest trailer for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. We've got THOR vs. TONY STARK... Stark as IRON MAN vs. HULK... and ULTRON vs EVERYBODY in what looks to be an incredible cinematic showdown for the AVENGERS in their second full-blown adventure, hitting theaters on May 1 via MARVEL Studios and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Take a look at this superhero goodness below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Judging from the hit-count on my blog posting yesterday that featured a 22-second snippet of a new SOUNDGARDEN song slated for inclusion on THE AVENGERS Soundtrack, I'd say interest in both the film and the band are pretty high. Well, earlier today, Disney sent over the full tracklisting for AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: Music From and Inspired by The Motion Picture. Additionally, The Rock Father has learned that the aforementioned SOUNGARDEN cut Live to Rise will be featured over the end credits of the film.  Check out the full tracklisting and all the artists below.

Well, this certainly came out of the blue this morning... and The Rock Father™ approves.

I'm still a little weirded out when I see MARVEL merchandise inside THE DISNEY STORE (even though I love both brands),  but it's even weirder when someone from Disney sends you a preview of brand-NEW music from SOUNDGARDEN via AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture. Would you like to hear a 22-second snippet of the first new SOUNDGARDEN single in 15 years? S.H.I.E.L.D. commands you to read on... and Live to Rise.
