About MindFenix's Hobby Store
Welcome to Mindfenix.com.au - an Australian, family owned and operated online store which focuses on introducing and selling Gundam & toys.
Back to when we was kids, we stumbed upon a SNES game named "Super robot wars 4" (4th Super Robot Wars - Dai-4-Ji Super Robot Taisen). It is a super fun tactical RPG game consists of squares map, mechas and battles. This was also the place we first encountered the term "Gundam". But all we knew at that time was that all the head icons with the V antenna are a type of Gundam, we have no clue what their model or how they were called Gundam even though we did some research and watched some Gundam anime (we never got a chance to watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam back then). It was much later when our family got access to Internet 56k Modem we got to know a little more about Gundam and the model kits. Unfortunately, we do not have that kind of luxury to get the kits because there was no way to get it ship to where us lived or the cost was as much as triple the initial price for a simple kit.
Fast forward to 15 years later, at 30s, we discovered our passion for Gundam again by chance when our little brother bought a spin-off kit from China when he had a holiday over there. So we decided to bought a small SD kit of our favourite Gundam, the GP03 to play for fun as well, but this time from a genuine 1 from Bandai. It was first time ever that we got our hands on the runners; we cut piece by piece using scissor and build it to complete. Our heart was overwhelmed with happiness when it is done. It feels like we found a lost hobby again for our adulthood. The kit is amazing; simple to complete, yet it left us an impression that so much can still be done to it to make it looks like the box image or even better! it is definitely a very high quality toy that at that moment; we thought it can as well be a super educational toys for kids.
Within a year of exploring the world of Gundam model kits, our little family had come to decide to start an online store to test out our ideas and spread the hobby to more Australians. Hence the store came to life.
