  • Hello and welcome to Rivals Corner!

    First of all thank you for visiting our small hobby store!
    Rivals Corner was founded for a love of all things Japanese and more importantly, a passion and nostalgia for the 90's and retro anime. We wanted the store and its logo to capture the feel of a Konbini[コンビニ] /convenience store from Japan, while utilising bold letters and familiar colours of a certain popular mecha ;)
    We know there are a lot of other great stores out there and more established but our goal will be to open the first specialised hobby store for Japanese model kits in London. It may take some time, but hopefully with enough dedication, patience, some support from the community and let’s face it, da monies, we’ll be able to reach our goal and continue to serve a growing community of passionate fans and newcomers alike.
    For now we're primarily stocking Gunpla but we will grow our collection to other model kits and series in the future!
    If you'd like to request for a specific product, feel free to drop us a line and we'll see if we can find it and stock it in our store!
    We hope you enjoy our website and come back again to support our small business.
    D&K
    Psst! If you'd like to find out more about the name, why not head over to our About Us page ;)

    What Does a Gunpla’s Grade Mean?

    Almost all gunpla available to buy have a two-letter designation that, whilst confusing at first, succinctly shows the type of model and design you can expect.
