Into Darkness updates: puzzle, soundtrack, and trailer

A few Star Trek Into Darkness newslets:

Neca have officially announced their Connect With Pieces puzzle/game, which is based on the first Into Darkness poster. Here is the updated box art they have released:

And their description of the game:
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.
Michael Giacchino's soundtrack, which was already available to pre-order on CD, is now listed on Amazon for a vinyl release as well. As far as I can tell the last Star Trek film soundtrack release on vinyl was The Final Frontier, all the way back in 1989!

Still no other details on the album yet, other than that in Germany the CD will be released by Varese Sarabande's German licensee, Colosseum.

Finally, if you like to watch every variation of the trailers possible, Paramount have released a new UK TV version. Apparently their Youtube release is localised, but TrekMovie have uploaded a copy, so you can watch it wherever you are:
