there are many places to buy gunpla in HK. Even toys r us sell them if you dont mind overpaying them.

There are a couple of places that I usually go.
1) Sai Yee street in mong kok, between Mong Kok Road and Argyle Street.
It's close to Mong Kok MTR station so it's easy to find. There are 2 stores here. One is called 英明(Ying Ming) and the other is 千里達 (sorry dont know the english name). Both have cheap prices.

2) 仁安大廈 (Yan On Building) in Yau Ma Tei
this place can be hard to find because it's easy to miss the entrance. It's on Dundas Street near Kwong Wa Street behind the Kwong Wah hospital. There are a bunch of hobby shops on the ground floor of the building that sell a variety of models, resin ktis, figures, and R/C toys. It's worth to check out.

Wanchai's Tai Yuen street is another good one for both model kits and some basic tools.

oh ok! gotta try to go there, would it be hard to go by yourself to those places? and what language do you guys use to talk with them? since i only know basic mandarin and no cantonese whatsoever.

I think they can understand mandarin, but if they don't, use english.
