“Present for a Friend”

Written on: 08/01/2014

I was looking for a present for a friend's birthday, and Forbidden Planet had the perfect item. It was a Game of Thrones hat that I knew he would love. I looked around on the internet, and Forbidden Planet had it for the lowest price. I ordered the hat and it took a bit for the mailing team to contact me about shipping and handling rates, but that is because I live in the U.S.A. I was very pleased with the rate for shipping and handling when they told me how much it would cost. I was also able… Read Full Review

“very slow with no communication”

Written on: 06/01/2014

I ordered some adventure time items, that were in stock, for Christmas. There was no mention that I would not receive these in time, they were still in stock on the website. I look at the terms and condition of delivery and was informed that I would have to wait 21 days before I could question the delivery. I think an order placed 11 days before Christmas, unless otherwise told should arrive before Christmas, especially when paying £5.50 for the pleasure!… Read Full Review

“Long wait for order to be shipped”

Written on: 06/01/2014

The site itself is great, and easy to navigate. I came looking for a present for a friend, who I know loves this shop, and to my delight came across a signed copy of her favourite book. However the time taken for my order to be shipped has been painfully slow, whilst I recognise I did order over the Christmas period, it took around 3 weeks for my item to be dispatched, much longer than I had expected. However despite this I shall be purchasing from this site again, because I think it has a good… Read Full Review

“Quick response and easy ordering”

Written on: 31/12/2013 by Jurioch (1 review written)

The layout of the website is very easy to navigate, I found the items I was looking for almost instantly. I have ordered from ForbiddenPlanet before, and the service has always been prompt. As a customer ordering from outside the UK, I can't have my items shipped until I have an email correspondence discussing postage/shipping costs, which is a nice gesture on part of the website because it gives me the chance to make sure I know exactly how much I'm paying(because of currency exchange and the… Read Full Review

“Hopeless”

Written on: 24/12/2013 by Chrismk57 (1 review written)

I ordered an item on 11th December, that was listed as in stock. It wasn't shipped until 24th December. There was no warning of delay. No other online retailer is this bad. I would recommend that my friends order from anywhere else. I even had items arrive from the US quicker… Read Full Review

“Awful service”

Written on: 24/12/2013 by Givvy (1 review written)

I ordered a book for my boyfriend on the 11th December- a large sign on the website said that was the last day for Christmas orders- great! I should have it by Christmas. Today (Christmas Eve) I have just received a despatch notice...so He'll have it by new year at the earliest! I fully appreciate that this time of year is busy but how has it taken 2 weeks to put a book in the post?? Awful service… Read Full Review

“Super gutted with the lack of organisation with dispatch”

Written on: 24/12/2013 by Staaacey (1 review written)

Despite the fact that I ordered my items (one of which was a present for my little sister, the other a game for the whole family to enjoy on Christmas Eve) over TWO WEEKS before Christmas, they were not dispatched until December 23rd. Now I have returned to my parents' home, I can't get the parcels I was expecting ages ago until after Christmas. Because of this, my little sister doesn't have anything to open on Christmas morning, and the game will arrive too late for my family to have fun… Read Full Review

“Slow delivery”

Written on: 23/12/2013

Have orderd a number of things and after being told they are in stock , 10 days later you get an email saying the item is unavailable, which then makes it too late to buy from any where else ! The delivery time is the slowest on the internet taking 3 weeks to get 'in stock items '… Read Full Review

“Long delivery time”

Written on: 23/12/2013 by haboothy (1 review written)

I ordered 3 items all the same and in stock on the 7.12.13. Took 2 weeks to be dispatched and delivered. Luckily these were for my own children, so arrived just in time, but if they had been for other presents, would have been too late to give them out. Order number 50368301… Read Full Review

“Forbidden planet”

Written on: 21/12/2013

I placed an order on the 5th December and apart from the initial "we have received your order" email I have had no info on this order despite emailing customer services a few days ago. I have just received notification that my items have need dispatched SECOND CLASS post and therefore unlikely to arrive before Christmas. Compared to the numerous other online shops I have used this has been a terrible service and I will certainly not use or recommend Forbidden planet.com to anyone… Read Full Review

“Appalling overall service”

Written on: 20/12/2013

I ordered 3 items in plenty of time for Christmas, but there was no clear information on delivery times in the confirmation email or on the website. I then received an email 2 weeks later saying that the order had been dispatched and will be delivered 1 - 2 working days later but due to this being over a weekend and very close to Christmas, I will not be able to give them as presents as I wanted to because they won't arrive in time. This service is not informative enough, there needs to be… Read Full Review

“Long wait for purchased items”

Written on: 20/12/2013 by vinomother (1 review written)

Although you have informed me that my order is now on its way (20 December), I made the purchase on 6 December thinking I had plenty of time to forward it on to my grandson. Even if the parcel arrives tomorrow, Saturday 21st December) I don't think it will make it to its final destination before Christmas. I think that 14 days is far too long to wait and will not encourage me to buy from you again… Read Full Review

“Has taken 2 weeks to dispatch! ”

Written on: 18/12/2013 by LH414 (1 review written)

I am extremely disappointed with this service. I made my order 2 weeks and, and only TODAY (!) it has been dispatched. It was intended as a present, and given the late dispatch and 2nd class delivery service, it isn't likely to arrive in time. Had I known, I would have shopped elsewhere, as I will be in the future… Read Full Review

“Order #50361122”

Written on: 18/12/2013 by Khattnip (1 review written)

Order #50361122 Overall I would say I am greatly pleased with the service Forbidden Planet provides, I mainly use the store in London to buy comics but as it is a bit of a trek I often use the online ordering service to save myself a trip! And I find the website to be very dependable in terms of availability, far more so than compared to competitors! If I could wish the service changed in one way it would be to speed up the process of the order from start to finish? Obviously I understand… Read Full Review

“Poor communication”

Written on: 17/12/2013 by mikearmstrong11 (1 review written)

I have yet to receive the item but feel the need to review the service on merit (or lack of) alone. I ordered the item on 8th December so to get the present in time for Christmas. The gift is for my girlfriend and was supposed to arrive in my address in England prior to Christmas so that she can have it before we go back to Spain together. Noticing after several days that there was no communication, I contacted Customer Services to receive absolutely zero feedback. The item has now been… Read Full Review

You and me both! I ordered mine on the 4th December, and am travelling from Italy to the UK to spend Christmas with my family and won't get the present in time. It will probably arrive after I leave, so I feel your pain. What a disappointment!
