“Poor packaging”

Written on: 24/09/2016 by West177 (1 review written)

I use FP for comic purchases the main problem I have is with the packing. Too many comics arrive damaged, bent corners finger marks etc. Comics should be bagged and boarded individually and sealed and not have 6-9 crammed in to 1 bag with no board and an open bag… Read Full Review

“Continues to illegally bill your card !!!”

Written on: 22/09/2016

So I left fp after some really terrible quality of comics (ripped/damaged/badly packed) and deleted my account. Despite closing my account in June, deleting physically all card details these guys continue to charge me, I've raised the complaint now with both my bank and the local office of fair trading, pretty shocking fp, disappointing having used your shops and online for 20 years… Read Full Review

“FAB bit of kit, thanks loads FP ....”

Written on: 22/09/2016 by Markshac (1 review written)

The Star Trek Communicator is one of the best things I've ever bought. It not only gives you recorded voices from the original series, it has Bluetooth built in, so you can use it as a wireless speaker, but the best bit, is if you connect it by Bluetooth to your smart phone, you can actually use it like it's supposed to be used, to send texts and make/receive phone calls. The order was processed quickly and they keep in touch with you all the way ..... the only thing that let my order down, was… Read Full Review

“Great service but a little slow”

Written on: 10/09/2016 by qcMoss198 (1 review written)

When looking for the comics I wanted I could find them very easily and purchase them in an simple method. The only problem I had was the time it had told me my order has gone through, which took four days, for then to say that it'll take another 3-5 days just to deliver(This is because I am a UK customer). But this is my only problem because I am impatient, overall great service… Read Full Review

“First Time Purchase ”

Written on: 08/09/2016 by AmaniPrice364 (1 review written)

The package was well secure,arrived in under a week, only issue I had was some comics were back to back in the same bag,using a halfback board,also had 4 comics in one bag with no board at all. Everything was perfect apart from that, I understand it's to keep postage down, but personally this is a practice of storing comics that makes me cringe in disgust… Read Full Review

“fantastic store - horrible online service”

Written on: 02/09/2016 by lewissluman (1 review written)

I recently contacted them to complain about an order. I placed it nearly a whole month ago on the 3rd of august. I had my engagement party on Saturday (27th), where the three books/comics were meant to be given as a present to my younger cousin. I couldn't do that. Waited nearly a month for an order which at the time i placed it, was in stock and all was fine. Only after a couple of weeks when i emailed in to check on it, did i get told the ones in stock were apparently of poor quality and… Read Full Review

“Awesome shop with great service! ”

Written on: 25/08/2016 by ryanmills (1 review written)

Order of here a lot, everything comes packed very well and all good value compared to other places! If you're looking for the latest comics, graphic novels, or any other pop culture figures/collectables then this is the place! In all honesty I don't have a bad thing to say about this place, easy to use for your subscriptions, everything comes on time and never had a problem! Also if you get the chance to ever visit there shops, especially the London one in Covent Garden then do it. It's amazing… Read Full Review

“Great service but shipping of items took a while”

Written on: 17/08/2016

I loved the variety of merchandise available from the endless amounts of comics to the figurines, my only problem was that I ordered a comic on a Wednesday and it was dispatched the following Monday and then will take 3-5 days to get here. But overall great… Read Full Review

“Still waiting 10 days later...”

Written on: 15/08/2016 by BoydieBoy86 (1 review written)

I placed my order on 5th August, it is now the 15th and still no sign of my order. This was a leaving gift from my former colleagues, just as well because had I payed good hard cash I'd be possibly be angry right now. It took 5 days just to dispatch, which I personally think is shocking for a company of this magnitude. Disappointed is an understatement. Am I likely to use Forbidden Planet again? Not if I can go ANYWHERE else. I assumed, as their prices were slightly high compared to other… Read Full Review

“Best online merchants store I've ever used!”

Written on: 15/08/2016

I seriously love this website. As a collector of Pop Funko products, I was so happy to find Pop Vinyls online for £8.99 instead of having to pay £12-£15 for them in-store. I've also ordered comics from Forbidden Planet and they've always arrived in perfect condition with the comic sleeve and board to store them in. Another thing I particularly like is the fast processing and shipping - the longest I've waited was only four days, usually I get a confirmation email 2-3 days after placing my… Read Full Review

“Dispatch time too long”

Written on: 12/08/2016 by NatalyPike (1 review written)

ordered items at 10:30 ish on a Friday and items not dispatched until almost 4 full business days later 5 if you count a Saturday. Delivery charge is quite high in comparison to other suppliers within the UK and also gives slower shipping of up to 3-4 working days meaning over a full working week for order to receipt. Very disappointing, I would not use the service again without knowing of a major improvement in turn around… Read Full Review
