GundamPlanet.com - NY/NJ's Hottest Japanese Hobby Shop

Updated: Oct 25, 2020

As an avid collector of many things Japanese I am always on the lookout for shops that carry a great inventory for product lines both old and new. The last few months my family and I have visited quite a few shops in the NY and NJ area and this weekend we decided to visit GundamPlanet.com nestled in Palisades Park, NJ just across the Hudson river from NYC. From the name you can figure out what they specialize in and when you enter the store you see Gunpla from wall to wall and floor to ceiling. The store which has a very warehouse feel to it has aisles of merchandise and is adequately sized.

In addition to Gundam models, supplies and toys they carry a great selection of other Japanese (anime/manga) figures, models and merchandise. Some well known brands they carry are Figma/Max Factory, SH Figuarts, Revoltech and Bandai. I personally have put together a couple of Gundam models in the last year or so but this trip was more in search of anything Godzilla or N.G. Evangelion. Unlike other stores I have visited recently #GundamPlanet left me pleasantly surprised and was able to accommodate what I was looking for. I picked up a new SH Figuarts - Godzilla Earth, three Revoltech - Evangelion 2.0 EVAs and a Figma - Link figure. The prices can vary depending on what you buy when you buy it and if you leverage store earned points rewards at time of purchase. Compared to online prices some items were up to 20-25% mark up while surprisingly some items were within range or below online prices (Amazon). The selection of merchandise is excellent and the store staff when we went which was on a Saturday were very friendly and helpful. Store hours are below and parking is in abundance (lot and street). I am definitely planning to make another visit sometime in the near future to GundamPlanet.com even more so because now I have some 15% off purchase item coupons to use. Store hours are below and let them know the Ragingeek sent ya!
