If you are a fan of Gundam kits or just about any Japanese style toy Hong Kong is one of the best places you can visit. With Shopping Centers like the very popular Sino Center and hundreds of other amazing toy shops in Hong Kong collectors from all over the world visit to pick up toys many you can’t find outside of Asia.
Between July 26th – September 1st, 2013 a display of life sized Gundam statues have been on display in Hong Kong’s shopping hub Times Square. Times Square is a popular destination due to it being a shopping and transport hub. Even if you aren’t planning a visit to Times Square it’s hard to miss it.
These sized Gundam statues are rarely seen outside Japan where many shopping centers have them as permanent features.
If you are visiting Hong Kong and want to buy some Gundam models you have many options. Animate stores are a chain toy shop in HK which specialize in Gundam toys. For those wanting to explore more toy shops a walk round Mong Kok is highly reccomended but many shops don’t open until after 18:00. The Harbour City Toys R Us is also a good place to visit as they have a great selection of Gundams too.
