    National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Here's my idea: we work together to create a single database/thread of all the physical retail stores that carry Gunpla broken down by state and city and then sticky it. Myself or a mod will then update this first post with the stores suggested in the replies. I think this will be a great way for people to discover stores in their area, as well as stores near their travel destinations. Please keep it limited to places that have a physical retail store (and online stores that allow people to come to their warehouses and shop in person, like GSAM and GP). Unfortunately I don't have any such stores in my area, so I can only contribute the names of stores that I've encountered in my travels.

    This list was made possible thanks to the efforts of: 11thshogun, A_Lurker, ahaiko, Arashiku, ASH74, Asterisk, Dark Matter Dynames, IndustryStandard, Mr.Ral, neverlift831, Plamobot, Riah, Rxslinger, Squee, thwalker13, Wreeper007, XXXG-01H, Zeta, Zeta-G.

    I like this idea. Unfortunately, I don't have any stores in my area other than HobbyTown and B&N.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    @thwalker13: Do you ever travel to places that do have Gunpla stores? That's how I've found all of my submissions. Thanks for the sticky btw.

    @everyone: Remember guys & gals, this list is only as good as we make it. The more submissions we get, the more complete this list will look. Even if you live in the middle of nowhere, every little bit will help. If you have concerns about revealing your location publicly, just PM me the city, state, and store, and I'll update the list without linking you to that location (although I'll still include you in the general special thanks section, unless you request me not to).

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Yeah, I just looked up the name to find out if it was one or two stores after I updated the list with all the names. Then you ninja'd me to correcting it in said list. I also looked up the cities for the two California stores and added those.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    I have a few shops as well. ToyArena in the City of Industry, CA; Anime King in Irvine, CA; Brookhurst Hobbies in Garden Grove, CA; Things From Another World in Universal City, CA. I'm sure 11thShogun has a list of places that sell Gunpla here in California.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Mind you, Things From Another World is more of a high-end comic book shop, but their Gunpla selection is greater than that of your average comic book shop (they have a whole aisle dedicated to Gunpla).

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    Really need the cities, guys. Also don't bother with listing the individual HobbyTown USA and Barnes and Noble stores. They're national chains with store locators on their websites.
