567 State Rt 23
Pompton Plains, NJ 07444
Run by a nice gal named Linda. They are mostly geared towards rc planes but carry a good supply of revel/tamiya plastic cars with the occasional motorcycle. Also a few wooden planes and boats and some basic diorama pieces. Decent selection of Taimya paints and other enamels but not all of the colors. No trains or gundam models carried
590 Us Highway 46
A small shop geared towards rc cars but has a good selection of plastic planes, tanks and cars and hobby magazines. Just picked up their last bike - YZR500. Again no trains or gundam models.
3118 Route 10 West
Denville, NJ 07834
A tiny hole in the wall shop on the lower level of a small building. This shop is geared mainly towards trains, dioramas and tanks/planes/aircraft carriers etc. They have a good selection of paint, both enamel and acrylic, with many more colors than the previous two shops. Once again no trains or gundam models.
Unknown store name - across from Mitsuwa food market
595 River Rd
Edgewater, NJ 07020
There is a small toy shop across from the Mitsuwa food market on River Road in Edgewater. They have a very small selection of HG grade and 1-2 MG or PG gundam models
Will add more as I visit them. I'm working off of www.hobbyretailer.com and the local yellow pages.

Lots of hobby related items, but deals mainly in model trains, plains, and tanks. They do have a small overpriced selection of gunpla though, but carry tons of modeling supplies (mr. hobby among them).
Jackson's Hobby shop
Deals mainly with RC items and model cars, trains, etc. No gunpla though but there are supplies to be found.

I'd like to thank stryderprime for letting me know about F&M stocking the paints. He did a "support your local hobby store video" in his youtube channel for this hobby store last year. So, stryder, if you're a member here under a different user name and sees this post, thanks for the heads-up.

That place is about 15 minutes from my house! They have a small selection of Gunpla but they'll order it for you and they much cheaper than that Mitsuwa Market Place

The first is New World Manga in Livingston, N.J.
These guys have a decent selection of Gunpla and some Gundam Markers as well as accessories. They aren't the cheapest in town but aren't too bad for a small shop.
Lastly, there is Mapplewood Hobby in Maplewood, N.J.
These guys mostly specialize in Warhammer figures and Model Planes/Cars but are beginning to carry Gunpla. They also have a nice stock of Tamiya acrylic paint and sprays as well as many other accessories.
I hope to be able to talk to some Gunpla fans from Northern New Jersey as well. I hope this has been helpful!
