Online Sellers of Gunpla or Gundam Model Kits


Last time, I featured a blog post on where to buy gunpla or where to find gundam model kits store and shops. But what if we can't find the model kit we're looking for from those Gunpla stores? That's when we tried looking for Gundam fans that sells model kits, too.

Through Facebook (and other social media sites), many online sellers can easily post their items for sale and reach out their target markets through posting and sharing on groups and fan pages. It is difficult, however, to find trusted and 'easy-to-transact-with' online Gunpla sellers so some reviews and recommendations are additional points to help out our fellow Gunplamates in choosing the right seller.

So today, I'll be sharing with you two Gunpla online sellers. I already bought a few Gundam model kits with one of them.

NOTE: I am NOT commissioned to promote their products/stores. I'm just happy and willing to do some sort of review about their service as a happy and satisfied customer.
