There’s no business like snow business. That’s the motto of the folks behind Toy Fair 2013, which will take place at the Javits Center in New York City from Feb. 10 to Feb. 13. Likewise, a few flakes – OK, a whole lot of ‘em – aren’t going to stop Star Trek licensees from showing off their newest products. StarTrek.com has a preview of some of the upcoming products, and photos, too.
BIF BANG POW!
Star Trek TV and film buffs around the world can start to collect a full armada of standard scale and miniature sized Monitor Mate bobble heads beginning Summer 2013.

Also coming up, in April: the shot glass versions of the TOS Art Prints. The shot glasses will be sold in sets of four for $14.99 and the first seven sets are available now for pre-order.
Star Trek Connect with Pieces is the all-new puzzle building game. Each puzzle piece has one of 5 symbols on it (they are cleverly pressed in so that they are only visible when looking for them). Score points by finding the right pieces! Match up more symbols for more points! Featuring 2 modes of play, you can ramp up the speed or the strategy for different play styles. Featuring a proprietary manufacturing method. The primary image is maintained while the game play is layered in for a unique take on this classic activity. (SRP: $12.99)
