Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our Thursday summary, where we are reviewing all related items released during the last 7 days.

This week has been characterized by the Chinese New Year holidays in Hong Kong. While Play-Asia's shipping center has reopened again yesterday after the public holidays, several suppliers and distributors are still taking holidays until end of this week. Arrival of a number of new releases might therefore be delayed for a few days, our apology in advance to any customer affected by this situation.
