Any new info for a reopening date?
New Releases coming soon
Was there actually a HG Virgo announced this week? Saw on zakuarelius
Just sharing my Nepteight build, and SD Nightingale with CS frame.
Absolutely loving the RG EVA-00!! So much articulation and intricate details throughout! Cant wait to build the EVA-02
Barbatos asserting his dominance over Gallarhorn
Wanted to take a moment and say thank you to Build up! Between the amazing staff and all the build knowledge you could ask for I've had an amazing experience this far! Would definitely recommend this store to anyone new or experienced to check them out!! (P.s. the Deathscythe gundam was an amazing decision, thank you!)
Got my first master grade model! Very excited about this one, it's been a fantastic build experience so far
Just buy this 30MM option weapon kit from guys yesterday and I made a lancer from Gears Of War
Thanks for the Zaku recommendation, such a fun build! Also picked up some Gundam markers that I tested out for the first time on my (un)willing participant - Mobile Haro! Will definitely be back soon to pick up more kits!
Any of the New Wing Gundam EW ver. Ka in yet?
Bored?

Need something to do?

How about a new hobby?

Build Up Import Hobby and Collectibles is still open and offering curbside orders. It's the perfect place to check out if you enjoy putting things together, giant robots, anime, LEGOs, or if you've been thinking about starting a new hobby. Check out their page to see what they're all about, or give them a call to discover everything they have to offer!
Are there any builders out there? Build Up Import Hobby and Collectibles is a small, but unique place still offering curbside pickup for anyone looking to do some model building! Give them a call to find out what they might have in store (from WWII models to massive LEGO sets to intricate mechs!) for you to remain entertained!
Are you getting a Gundam head machine for the addition?
I don't often ask thing of people. I want to share this to help Build Up continue to support the hobby I love. Build Up Import Hobby and Collectibles

!!!Store Update!!!

We have finally acquired keys to the unit and are now able to move ahead with the the stuff under our control now! We already have the flooring quote & Last bit of work scheduled for next week and will finish off our side of the inspections asap!
We appreciate everyone's patience during this process! And will now be able to give a closer play-by-play for the rest of the reopening!

!!Store Update!!

Unfortunately permits are still pending but flooring has been scheduled and is moving ahead!

We don't have a new ETA as a lot of this is now just at the whims of city inspectors for permits.

Unfortunately we cannot take the keys until this process is fully done.

We appreciate everyone's understanding throughout this entire unorthodox and unexpectedly delayed process!

!!Store Update!!

Unfortunately during the inspection walkthrough we were informed of more delays due to Permits & electrical work being done to the entire complex. Our current range could be as early as this week or as late as April 1st currently.
We did get to check off the landlord contractors work & the location is looking great!(We have so many more electrical outlets and far better lighting & a grand new bathroom!)
We again apologize for the delays & share in the frustration of it all! But we are getting there!

Thanks for continuing to build with us!

!!Update!!

Unfortunately weather caused delays, but we have a final walk through before we get the keys now expected next Wednesday/Thursday!
We apologize for the delays & appreciate everyone's patience!
Here are some updated photos to show the progress made!
Feel free to check out the progress yourself at the 291 Station II next to Rae's Cafe!

As Always, Thanks for Building with Us!

!!Store Update!!

We apologize for the delays as we ourselves were waiting on news from the landlords. Unfortunately, due to delays between the city, contractor's and the permits, they were not approved until late January.
This delayed the internal construction longer than expected and this has pushed our expected occupancy date to March 1st.
This date could also suffer pushback, so please keep an eye for further updates! Until then, we did get some picture of the insides current progrss!
We apologize for the inconvenience & appreciate everyone's patience!

Thanks for Building with us!
