WOAH hold up, Akiba Hobby closed down? I knew he was having trouble holding up his store but damn...this is sad ><

Vic Hobby Centre is my new place to buy gunpla though considering their range has increased A LOT since last month haha

yeah the joint has closed but the guy wills till be prepping up a store at manifest just that he wont be having the range of stuff like gunpla like he used to.

shaid, not to be rude but those who have went to that store knows what hes like. ive posted it up on what the store owner is like no need to repeat it over and over. as much as i dislike the fella, we as a community have to show some form of decency here. just dont go to his store if you dont like the owner or the prices of gunpla. theres other stores which caters better prices. just saying though

It is better to at least have their store on the list cause there might be something that you might not be able to find in any on the Gunpla stores. Yes we do have some grumpy store holders/owners. But if you show respect to them they will tone down and befome friendly. I have had the same feeling at VHC long time ago and now I am well known by the staff and they have a nickname for me cause of my duel interests of railway and GUNPLA. lol

By having these store names and locations it helps many GUNPLA people to go and buy more mecha for their collection, or building sets. As I said before Wolfman you're great for doing this.  :D

I can also recommend Vic Hobby Centre. The two times I've been in there I've had great service. Much better than Mr Grumpy McGrumpy-Arsehole in a particular store on a street that rhymes with "Tronsdale"...


LOLOLOL. SO TRUE SOOOOO TRUE.

updated, gametraders at chaddie closed shop a few months ago. i think it was due to having to compete with ebgames which moved their shop nearby gametraders to beat their prices... kinda a d*** move on their part but thats business

Airbrush Paints in Melbourne?
« Reply #41 on: March 17, 2013, 02:05:12 PM »

Hey guys,
I live in geelong near melbourne and am not sure where i can buy paints for the airbrush. I can only go to shops in Melbourne city and chinatown, most other places are too out of reach for me. Does anyone know where i can buy these paints? Much appreciated

Mod edit: merged with Gundam/Plamo in Melbourne topic. Most of the shops listed have paints of various brands.

Hello? Anyone still around?

I recently got into gunpla and was wondering if someone can update this list for me? I've only been in some stores in the cbd but want to explore other stores.

On a side note does anyone know if there are any stores in Meblbourne that sell zoid kits? I know they are hard to get but if anyones know plz list!

Metro on Swanson St

Hearns on Flinders near the station

Andrew's Hobbies at Deer Park

Don't know if there is a distributor for Kotobukiya in Australia so the Zoids kits could well be only what the shops bring in themselves.
