Sad day for competitive prices for Gunpla  :'(

HW Japan is closing it's doors (or web portal) on 15 Mar 2011. They say it's something to do with the parent company Aoshima's policies.

Toy-Wave in Hong Kong is quite good. I've used them in the past and they are pretty efficient and postage rates from Hong Kong are some of the best anywhere.

I would like to recommend 2 OS stores to the list. Saw them mentioned in a post by hoahoa and liked what they had to offer so I brought a few things.

Tatsu Hobby http://tatsuhobby.com/webstore/index.php?main_page=index

Defier Hobby http://www.defierhobby.com/index.html?frame=top&main_windows=Y2hlY2tvdXRfc3VjY2Vzcy5odG1s

Couldn't ask for more  :D. They both kept me informed of the order progress, Tatsu informed me that the item I ordered was damaged and they were getting a new one and they even refunded me excess postage.

I also tried the aussie site that Hamish mentioned, Frontline Hobby. A sad and sorry 3rd place  :( I'll have to be in dire straights to order from them again. Let's just say communication is not one of their strong points and neither is being able keep track of their stock  :(

I've got another store to add to the OS list. Everyone has probably heard of it so I'm surprised it's not already on the list.

Starship Modeller http://www.starshipmodeler.biz/shop/index.cfm

Whilst they only have a limited amount of actual Gundam stuff they have heaps of other bits and pieces and a pretty big range of Battlestar Galactica,Starwars, Star Trek and other sci-fi goodies. I've been using them for over 6 years and they are one of the only sites that have real time stock numbers. They are lighting fast in processing an order and bend over backwards to fix up any issues.

Let me post my "Insider Information" about the closure of "HW Japan".

I have dealt with Oishi Aiko for a number of times. She offered very good services.

I ask in an email whether I could pre-order the MG OO Raiser.

Quote
大石 亜衣子 to me    14 Mar
   
Dear Mr. [FireStallion],
 
Thank you very much for your message.
 
Fortunately, we had no damage by earthquake nor tsunami.
 
Please keep praying for Japan.
 
I will quit on 18th of March for personal reason.
Our company considered what they do regarding to HWJ over one month,
and decided to close it last week.
 
We are very sorry for your inconvenience,
and thank you very much for your support.
 

Best Regards,
Aiko Oishi

HW JAPAN
12-3 Ryutsu Center, Aoi-ku,
Shizuoka city, Shizuoka Pref.

Becasue Aiko quitted HW Japan and no one filled her post. They closed the English shopfront.

If someone can speak Japanese, lives in Shizuoka and wants to help the Gunpla builder's community worldwide, please fill in the job!

I know I'm new to these forums but thought I would offer up another online store to get Gunpla, Anime figures, Transformers etc..

It's Called Plamoya ( http://plamoya.com/en/ ) which is based in Japan. I have actually ordered most of my current gunpla from them. Most of their pricing are around the same as HLJ and arrive just as quick. When ever i cant find anything on HLJ this is the website i normally go to
