Japanese Retailers - Plamo / Gunpla
« on: October 10, 2016, 06:38:46 PM »
One's I have used so far are:
HLJ.com (huge range, prices ok)
http://www.hlj.com

Banzai Hobby (pretty decent range, more RC stuff)
http://banzaihobby.com/

Mandarake (if you're looking for something a little bit more hard to find)
https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/

Jungle (Second hand and b-stock stuff, good for a bargain now and then with the occasional rarity)

Plazza Japan :
good range of gunpla, good prices, good service, I used them occasionally when hlj didn't have what I wanted

HobbySearch
A lot of gunpla but definitely not the most user friendly site. I heard that they sometimes change the mode of shipping despite your own choice, you might choose SAL but they will ship EMS, haven't experienced that myslef but be aware. On the + side if you lost the building instructions, this is the place to go as they pretty much scan and upload all boxes inside and out.

just to add, i sent a message to HIQ saying it was annoying how international customers cant order outside japan because of cant enter address outside japan. got an email back saying they will happily do orders via email. ive ordered some very hard to find decals and parts from them and they were real pleasure to deal with. :)

This is awesome thanks I'm looking at getting some detail parts, direct is always best!

But



Google translate is being a bit fussy and isn't translating so I guess there's a bit of guess work to do..........

Thanks for sharing
