Buying Gunpla in the UK

Where do I buy Gunpla in the UK?

 
 

The most common question I get asked is “where do I buy Gundam kits in the UK?” so I decided to make this dedicated page to give my answer, so if I have sent you here, hello!

There are really only two choices, either you buy from Japan at a good price, but risk paying customs fees, or you buy from the UK at a higher price, with a small range, but get it sooner and without the risk of a customs fee. A good rule of thumb I follow is, if the cost of the kit, including shipping is over £20, then expect to pay a minimum of £15 in import charges. Add this too your total cost, and if it is more than buying a kit from the UK then go with buying the kit from the UK.

Here are the Japanese stores I recommend:

Banzaihobby.com - My go-to store, great prices, great range, always has sales. So good.

HLJ.com - The widest range at fair prices, nearly always gets a customs charge, but you can store up purchases in a vitual personal warehouse, and ship over in big batches.

And UK stores:
