Hong Kong is a shoppers’ paradise for toy lovers. Most of the toy shops are located in the Mong Kok district and that’s where I always stay when I visit Hong Kong. I have also included a short writeup on the toy street in Wan Chai district. Here’s a look at the malls I frequent for my Hot Toys, NECA, Figma, Nendoroid, Revoltech, gashapons and candy toys.

Update: This post has been updated in Apr 2014 and expanded to include the type of toys that can be found on each floor of the featured shopping malls. More recent photos including Hot Toys Secret Base, Enterbay and Tai Yuen Street have been added. I have also covered additional places to shop for toys in Hong Kong. Hope that this will make your toy shopping experience a fruitful and amazing one when looking for toy stores in Hong Kong. Happy shopping and browsing!

Mong Kok District

Richmond Shopping Arcade (皆旺商場)

Richmond Shopping Arcade

This is one of my favourite mall. It is located just outside the busy heart of Mong Kok on Argyle Street. If you walk past this building without knowing beforehand that it has 4 floors of toy shops, you will probably not enter it due to the nondescript facade. A stairway leading to the basement, an upriding escalator and another stairway that links to the upper floors are all you see at the entrance. No fancy window displays or toy advertisements outside. Inside, Richmond has plenty to offer in terms of 1/6 figures, Transformers, NECA, Mcfarlane, Figma, Nendoroid and Revoltech. I got all my NECA toys from here. Don’t forget to visit the basement as the stairways is not directly linked to the upper floors. Thanks to this site for the recommendation.

Another personal favourite, lots of Nendoroid, Figma, 1/6 figures & accessories and Lego can be found at In’s Point, near Yau Ma Tei MTR station. There is a shop dedicated to all things Bruce Lee too. In all there are 3 floors of toys shops but each floor is huge and has many more shops than Richmond Shopping Arcade, the top floor after that is a restaurant. I got my Hot Toys True Type bodies and Figmas from here.

Sino Centre (信和中心)

Sino Centre

Sino Centre is a very dynamic mall as the type of shops changes every time I visit within 1 or 2 years. In the mid-2000s, there used to be lots of shops selling mostly DVDs and Animes. Most recently in 2010 and 2011, console games, asian movie / TV idol photographs, photobooks and manga have taken over. There are still Japanese toys such as gashapons and candy toys (good for collecting whole sets) and trading cards. I also noticed more rental-type cabinets with random toys and gadgets for sale. The basement is mostly unchanged, and you will be able to find music CDs, DVD or Bluray boxsets from different regions. Great if you want to collect different boxset editions of your favourite movies for the different extras. Prices are competitive and all are original and legitimate sets.

Sino Centre Entrance

Name: Sino Centre (信和中心)
Address: 582-592 Nathan Road, Mong Kok
Nearest MTR: Mongkok station, Exit E2. Turn around and walk towards the main road, Nathan Road. Without crossing the road, turn left and walk for approximately 280 metres, you will see Sino Centre on your left. The entrance is a little obscure so look out for the large blue vertical signage that faces the pedestrian sidewalk.
Google map: Sino Centre

Update Apr 2014 for Sino Centre

20th floor (accessible via elevator): Hot Toys Secret Base Showroom & Gallery (Hot Toys New Official Store opened on 14 October 2013)

Secret Base (Hot Toys Official Store)

Located at Sino Centre floor 20, this new showroom, gallery and collection centre is every toy collectors’ dream come true. Virtually every single Hot Toys figure that has been produced is on display here.

CTMA Centre (兆萬中心)

CTMA Centre

No visit to Mong Kok is complete without dropping by CTMA Centre as the other Hot Toys showroom is here too. Before the opening of Secret Base, this is where you go if you want to admire Hot Toys pre-orders on display. Going by the name “Toy Hunters”, this should be familiar to you when you look at your Hot Toys packaging box. All the upcoming prototypes are displayed here. There are a few floors of toy shops here but I don’t usually buy anything from here as I don’t find their prices competitive enough. You can find mostly Japanese toys such as Nendoroid, Figma, gashapons and candy toys here. CTMA is directly behind Sino Centre but you have to walk around the whole stretch of the building to see it.

Kwong Wa Street

Kwong Wa Street

If you are into realistic model air guns, RC helicopters, tanks, boats and cars, Kwong Wa street should excite you. Lining this street on both sides are such model shops. If you are hungry, consider having 1-michelin star Dim Sum from Tim Ho Wan. Be prepared for a long wait though.

Address: The stretch along Kwong Wa Street
Nearest MTR: Mong Kok Station, Exit A2, 700 metres away. Walking directions is a little complicated so refer to map below. I choose a slightly longer route but there are plenty of clothing, electronics and eatery shops to see along the way as you will be cutting through the heart of Mong Kok.
Google map: Kwong Wa Street

Yan-On Building
Here along Kwong Wa street, you will find the the Yan-On building which houses the Enterbay showroom and collection centre. There are also several shops selling army surplus (U.S. military supplies), hobby modeling, radio controlled (r.c.), model guns & scopes.

Yan On Building

Branches I have visited include the one at Lane Crawford (Times Square, Causeway Bay MTR) and Langham Place (Mongkok MTR).

Wan Chai District

Tai Yuen Street (太原街)

Tai Yuen street in Wan Chai district is also known as Toy Street and there are around 4 to 5 toy shops in this area. I find them resembling our local neighbourhood toy shops, but you may still be able to find a gem or two. You can find Japanese toys such as gashapons, candy toys and an assortment of Sanrio toys. Toys that appeal to the younger generation such as Ben 10 and Beyblade can also be found here.

tai yuen street

Google map: Tai Yuen Street

 Update Apr 2014 Tai Yuen Street (Toys)
I noted down a few shops that seemed to stock the most toys. They are practically next to each other or opposite each other along Tai Yuen Street.
- Freeway Toys 縱橫行玩具: Transformers, Dragonball, Starwars, NECA, Egg Attack Iron Man, Bandai Gundam, Lego, Toy Story

Oriental 188 (東方188)
Much further down Wan Chai, towards the direction of Causeway Bay, is Oriental 188. There are 3 floors of console games, PC games, mobile accessories (covers, screen protectors, battery packs, cables), Blu-ray, DVD boxsets. If you are looking for games on clearance or older games, you may wish to drop by, else I think it’s out of the way. I didn’t really see any toys for sale here. Thanks to this site which I found during my research for additional places to shop for toys.

Nearest MTR: Wanchai MTR

Tai Koo Area

Toy Zone
This place is really out of the way, but apparently they have been featured in many toy magazines and newspapers due to the nature of their business. They operate as a collection point for online auctions and sales such as eBay, Yahoo auctions and even Rakuten. They mostly stock toys based on consignment and so it’s a great place if you are looking for vintage or classic toys and out-of-print items.I spotted toys such as classic McDonald collectibles, old MacFarlane toys, Spawn, NECA, Lego, Transformers, Kenner and other toys from the 80s and 90s. Prices are generally quite high as these are hard-to-find items. Thanks to this site for providing the info when I was researching on toy warehouses.

Website: Toy Zone
Address: Room B, 4th Floor, Wah Ha Factory Building, 8 Shipyard Lane, Tai Koo
Nearest MTR: Tai Koo MTR Exit A1 or A2
Walking directions on Google map: Toy Zone (Look out for Taobin on the ground floor. Go into the delivery lift area on the right. The friendly security guard will ask you which floor you are going. Tell him that you are going to the 4th floor. They will open the traditional lift with metal shutter gates and press the lift button for you. It’s quite an experience as you can see through the gates when the lift is ascending! I couldn’t figure out how to operate the lift when I left the shop so I had to walk down the stairs to the ground floor, LOL)

Hong Kong International Airport

Disney Store

If you have time for some last minute shopping or regretted not buying that cute Mickey Mouse plush while at Disneyland, consider dropping by the official Disney store located at the airport.

Just wondering, I’ll be visiting Hong Kong for a month this December/January… and I wanted to know if you’d be aware as to how toy shopping in HK compares to Tokyo and Osaka?

I’ve been to every toy store known to westerners in both cities, including Kobe and some other parts of Japan too. At the moment I’m tossing up if I should still go there, but I’m not happy about the radiation contamination that has engulfed Japan’s main cities.

Having said that, I’d only be going for a month, so I’m not to worried, even though their food is also contaminated : ( I mainly collect Macross, vinyl Kaiju toys, a bit of 1:6 scale (mainly Hot Toys) and all types of Japanese vintage toys.

Do you feel that Hong Kong would satisfy my tastes? Because I really do want to visit Hong Kong also. Thank you in advance, if you’re able to answer.

Thanks for dropping by. Hong Kong is definitely worth visiting for toys if you have not before. As Hot Toys and many other brands of 1:6 come from Hong Kong, you will be able to find a large selection be it new boxed releases or loose parts for kit bashing. I have only been to Tokyo’s Akihabara area and that was many years ago before I started collecting 1/6. Naturally, the selection of Japanese branded toys in Tokyo are much more and you have a higher chance of finding past releases. Most shops in Hong Kong are pretty small so they would stock mostly newer items. By the way, Hot Toys will be opening their new official store in Sino Centre on 14 Oct 2013, so be sure to check it out if you are in the area. :)

Thanks for sharing this very useful info, without this maybe I wouldn’t know such all of this hidden treasure places in HK

thank u so much

the price in HK is rather cheeper compare to SG and Indo, and you may also find some rare old items that maybe you’ve missed when it was released on market
I stay at Cityview hotel, best place for staying since the location is very close to Ins Point and Sino centre, walkable to nearest MTR Yau Ma Tei just 1 station to Mongkok to reach Richmond. You can see CTMA from your hotel window view.

Thx

Thanks so much for sharing. I usually stay at Stanford Mongkok, it’s about 15 minutes walk from CTMA. Sounds like Cityview is nearer and very convenient, I shall check it out next time. :)

hi there! thanks for sharing all these wonderful info. Will be visiting hongkong in a week time. Was thinking which are the malls which I must focus on if I am looking for kamen rider medicom toys and iron man hot toys?

Also, do you by chance know of any shops that do custom painting of 1/6 figures? As I might be bringing my toy over for repainting.

Thanks!

Reply

him October 21, 2013 at 10:13 pm

Medicom in general (not sure specifically kamen rider) can be found in CTMA centre. Hot Toys in CTMA and In’s Point. As In’s Point has 1/6 kits and a few model shops, you might be able to find a shop to do repainting for you, but this is just my guess.

I love your well dcoumented site for 1/6 collecting.
As I am staying at Kowloon Hotel later this month, I only have one day for shopping.

Can you kindly recommend me which place is best in terms of pricing for buying 1/6 accessories, Richmond Arcade or In’s Point?

Reply

him November 11, 2013 at 9:53 pm

Thanks! It’s really hard to say as prices vary between shops. From my memory, I would think In’s Point has more shops selling 1/6 accessories. If you only have 1 day to shop and are going to Mong Kok area, you can afford to check out most of the toy malls there as they are all between 2 stations (Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok). Just note that they don’t open that early, some open near noon or after noon.

Medicom RAH are 1/6, which can be found at In’s point. The new EVA 00 seems pretty limited as it is a wonder fest exclusive so I am not sure if you can still find them. You can also try your luck at the basement of Richmond Arcade and some of the shops in CTMA centre.

Hi!
First of all I would like to say that your guide is amazing! Awesome work! It helped me a lot, this is how I found In’s Point so a huge thank you! I am looking forward to future guides!

That being said, I was wondering if you could give me any advice on buying Figmas and Macfarlanes in Hong Kong.

I am most interested in the Figma Amazing Spider Man 1 and 2 (I am aware that TASM2 will be released in Sep/Oct 2014) and in McFarlanes Halo figures.

I tried looking in Causewaybay (Metro comics, Clarks comics) and at In’s point. Most of the figures I am “hunting down” are out of stock or I just couldnt find them. I might have missed some stores at Ins point as I went there three times total last week (got hot toys War machine and Marvl legends ASM2 *yay*). Perhaps I. just dont know where to look?

Any idea where I should go to get them?

Again thanks!

Reply

him July 15, 2014 at 12:08 am

Hey you are welcome and I’m glad that my guide has helped you ^^ For Figma, you could probably try the basement of Richmond Arcade (they open at around 3pm) as those shops tend to stock toys of Figma size, such as Revoltech and S.H.Figurarts. Many of the shops there take pre-orders if you are looking for upcoming releases. There is a shop at the 3rd floor of Richmond Arcade that sells McFarlanes and NECA, but I can’t remember if they have Halo figures.

This is a common issue with popular toys: shops tend to have limited storage space so once they are sold-out, they are seldom restocked. Sometimes they have limited allocation.
