is a small hobby business located in Myaree, Western Australia specialising in model kits. The branding was established in 2014 but we only moved to the Myaree store on the 1st of December 2016. The concept of Little Robot was not only to offer customers the biggest range of Gundam, Mecha, SciFi and Anime model kits in WA but more importantly to create a community whereby customers can catch up with fellow builders.
In 2014, the Little Robot branding was founded by Perry and Iven. At that time our goal was to establish Little Robot as WA’s number one store for Japanese pop culture merchandise. Anime related figurines was the first product we stocked. However in 2015 we decided to shift our direction after Perry took over Little Robot. The decision to change Little Robot from an anime figurine store to a model kit specialist was largely due to Perry’s interest in Mecha and a burning desire to create a safe haven for Mecha fans to share their interest. Thus the store in Myaree.
We stock major Japanese brands like Bandai, Hasegawa, Kotobukiya, Wave, Mineshima and Mr Hobby to name a few. Gundam and Mecha is our speciality. In the shop you will also find rare, discontinued and often obscure vintage kits available for sale.
Why support us? Buying from us means that you are supporting a locally owned business that supports the community. In addition to that we buy 90% of our stock from local distributors so that means that you allow us to support another local business thus creating jobs for fellow Australians. The proudest thing we’ve built is not a kit but a community that has grown to support each other. So buying from us allows us to continue to offer that support.
We have the biggest range of Gunpla and Mecha kits in WA however the point of difference of Little Robot is the community. We support local anime clubs, local events, local businesses and in store we have an area for customers to build their kits, share what they’ve built, attend free workshops or just simply catch up with fellow kit builders.
Little Robot has a light hearted atmosphere. Our staff are friendly and always happy to chat about Gundam , Mecha, Scifi, gaming, anime, pop culture and food! We love food and have an insatiable appetite for nuggets and pizza! If you’ve never been to our store, come in check it out and if you are new to the hobby, one of our friendly staff will be happy to help you out :)
