“Takes too long to dispatch”

Written on: 10/10/2016 by CristoferRyan36 (1 review written)

I placed an order on the 29th September. One of my items has been delivered today however I've just received an email stating the next item has been dispatched. That's 7 working days since I ordered the item. I bought from Forbidden Planet simply because they had both of the items in stock however desperately wish I hadn't now and simply bought each item from 2 different shops. I now have to wait for this item to be delivered. If it takes the maximum 5 working days, it will be 13 working days… Read Full Review

“Batman Jock Litho”

Written on: 05/10/2016

Received my order over here in the states in a box that was crushed, half opened and had a green "damaged" sticker on it. Nervously I opened my package expecting the worse but thanks to Forbidden Planets job on packing my prints and comics everything was in mint condition. Super fast shipping and a great job all around from these guys. I wouldn't hesitate to order again from them even though I live in the US. Thanks!… Read Full Review

“Is a delay in shipping normal?”

Written on: 05/10/2016

Placed the order, 6 days ago, before 11am on the first day, so could have possibly seen sent that day. Confirmation of shipping sent today so say it's just been shipped. The boys birthday was yesterday, and although it was a possibility of it arriving on time, although 3 days With delivery I would have though would be enough, i obviously didn't take into account that it wasn't going to be sent until the next week. … Read Full Review

“rubbish postage”

Written on: 02/10/2016 by Bradley413 (1 review written)

I placed the order on 22.09.16 and got an email confirmation. That was a Thursday. I then received an email saying been despatched on the following Tues 27.09.16. (I received Friday 30/09/16). I then remembered I had paid 2nd class post at £5.50. I have checked with my local Post Office and found the total price payable for 2nd is 75p. Why did I have to wait over a week for delivery? Why did I pay so much. It falls into Large Letter but the weight made it 75p, NOT £5.50. Your return… Read Full Review

“Don't bother pre ordering”

Written on: 30/09/2016

I won't be bothering to pre order items again, having pre ordered the full sets of Dark crystal and Labyrinth pop vinyls in July due for release in September and October. I was pleased to get a dispatch notice for the Labyrinth figures but then realised that Aughra was not being sent with the other figures, I checked online to discover Aughra listed as out of stock, no notification was sent that I would not receive one of the figures and no details of when they might be in stock either.

“ Thunderbirds Tracey Island”

Written on: 30/09/2016 by joeydrocks2005 (1 review written)

I placed my order for Thunderbirds Tracey Island on Tuesday 27th Sept. The item was shown as being in stock. The item was not dispatched until Friday 30th September - too late to arrive on time for my little boys birthday. This is despite the fact that I phoned their customer services on Thursday 29th Sept and the promised me that the item would definitely be dispatched that day. Terrible service. I will not be using them again… Read Full Review

“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
