OVERALL RATING

4.9 / 5 Stars

It came right on time and packaged very securely. Definitely will be ordering more Gunpla in the future. 👏🏿👏🏿 Christopher Medford

This was my first order from Kikatek, it arrived very quickly and very well packed. Gundam aren’t that easy to get in the UK so it’s good to find a supplier I can trust. Everything was in perfect condition. Highly recommended. I will definitely order again from here. Ian Fakenbridge

Ordering was nice and simple, and delivery was beyond expectation. Shadowwolfie

Amazing experience, I messed up my delivery postcode and they told me straight after placing the order, then amended it to the correct one. Afterwards it was dispatched within 2 hours and arrived early the next day. Amazing customer service and will order again soon. Aetolia
