Star Trek goes plush, plastic, and precious.
As we head farther into this anniversary year, Star Trek licensees are assembling a fleet of new toys and collectibles to launch a full-scale invasion of our fandom—and many of these items are on display at the annual Toy Fair in New York City. Ranging from plush animals to starships to forget-me-nots, there’s a lot to like in this latest lineup. And if chess is your game, well, you’d better start exhibiting three-dimensional thinking. We run down some of the highlights of the Toy Fair.
