“Very slow”

Written on: 09/05/2016

Ordered just under £40 of goods, only went to forbiddenplanet.com because couldn't find the stuff anywhere else and I had been to the London store and new of their company. Placed my order on Wednesday and by Friday had heard nothing so decided to email to see where my order was at, by Monday afternoon I had received and email of dispatch confirmation but still no reply from the company themselves. I wouldn't be so frustrated with them if they were a small business and didn't have much staff… Read Full Review

“Process time.”

Written on: 09/05/2016 by Brucewayne81 (1 review written)

I can't understand why it takes so long to process an order! My items were in stock so it's not like I had to wait for them to come in. Why can't you do next day delivery like most companies do? 3 working days just to process an order? Really? And then another 3-5 working days for delivery....where are you based? The moon? I won't be using you again. If you want to wait over a week for your items this site is great. Don't expect your order to get to you the same week though!… Read Full Review

“Black Panther Buyer”

Written on: 09/05/2016 by KyleighRafferty145 (1 review written)

Excellent customer service instore & on the phone. Everything is awesome. Layout of products in West end store is great & accessible. The staff are very knowledgeable & friendly. Just wish FP had a loyalty/bonus card or something. Only time I ever have an issue at FP is when a comic I was after has sold out, other than that, that's been my store forever… Read Full Review

“I wish there was an alternative”

Written on: 03/05/2016 by Dalias274 (1 review written)

There is not a single aspect of their online subscription "service" that I am happy with. OK there is - the packaging is nice. That's about it. Their website is confusing: it doesn't tell you clearly if a title *isn't* subscribable. When you subscribe you should be able to start from the next available issue, there isn't a shipping date for the next issues yet to start your subscription yet (possibly delayed, possibly indefinitely) or just completely cancelled. But you're only ever told it's… Read Full Review

Hi there,

We are sorry to hear about your issues with our service.

We have to place our subscription orders two months in advance which is why we are not able to offer a subscription to start straight from the next issue released (unfortunately we couldn’t guarantee the stock).

At the moment we are currently working on streamlining our subscription service so that some of the other issues you have mentioned are resolved. We are particularly looking into making sure series that have ended are clearly marked and you are not able to add them to your account only to not receive anything.

Our subscriptions are sent out monthly. Depending on where your surname falls you will be placed in into week 1,2,3 or 4 of our schedule. If you were in week 3 for example, on the 3rd week of each month, we will send out everything that has been released at that point. The exception of this is if your order is complete before we reach you in our schedule. In this case we will process and despatch your order as soon as everything has arrived in. This should explain why you might receive some comics a week or so after they have been released. With our despatch times we generally have all of our subscriptions shipped out within two days of receiving our weekly comic delivery.

I hope this helps explain our subscription process in a bit more detail, if you have any problems with your ongoing subs please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our utmost to resolve them.

Kind Regards,

Comic Subscriptions Department

“Great products, long processing time”

Written on: 16/04/2016

The help team were fantastic, but I was told after waiting over the weekend and 2 working days that it would be shipped the next morning, and it wasn't. I ordered a magazine form another website at the same time and it arrived on the Monday. Apart from that and the unclear processing denotation on the "your account" bit, the webs tie and products are excellent… Read Full Review

“Not at advanced as you'd expect”

Written on: 07/04/2016 by Alissa372 (1 review written)

As a retailer of science fiction and fantasy, forbidden planet offer a short-sighted view on customer service and satisfaction. Bearing no connection with its high street stores, it aspires to offer as much as stores offered 20 years ago. My preference is to use the online store because of the quality the products in comparison to its stores e.g. stoke on trent (which is damp and disorganised). There's no option for postal choices - you have to pay and you have to wait! otherwise get free… Read Full Review

Hi there,

Thank you for your review, we are sorry that you have had a mixed experience using forbiddenplanet. We are always striving to improve our services and options for customers and hope you continue to shop with us.

The Stoke-on-Trent store does not actually belong to us and is owned by a company called Forbidden Planet International that we are not at all affiliated with. You can view our store locations on our site.

“Very impressed”

Written on: 01/04/2016

I have been a customer of FP for many years, but this is the first time I tried their mail order service - WOW! I was very impressed, both with the speed it took them to send my parcel and also with the care FP took over packaging. My item, though delicate, arrived in perfect condition, well cocooned against the ravages of the postal service! The website is a delight to visit, and I would highly recommend FP to a friend. Many thanks!… Read Full Review

“The quality of the comics aren't always perfect. Often...”

Written on: 25/03/2016 by Gallagherhy208 (1 review written)

The quality of the comics aren't always perfect. Often have tiny tears at the bottom of the spine and often looks like they have already been read before they've come. Also the time it takes from finishing your order for it to be processed and dispatched is extremely slow and could be greatly improved! I've waited at least a week for products that have been in stock to be processed and then even longer for it to then be dispatched. Having the option of first class or second class post or even… Read Full Review
