“Where´s my book?”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by mpiragibe (1 review written)

I was told that my purchase would be delivered on the 11 of sepetember. It´s the 14th and I haven´t received it yet. Besides this, the site registers that my purchased is "closed". I would like to know what could I do to receive the comic I bought or if it would be better to request refund… Read Full Review

“Slow dispatch slower postage. ”

Written on: 18/08/2017 by BruceWillser (1 review written)

I don't have what I ordered yet so this review focuses on the dispatch and delivery aspect of the experience. Possibly we are spoilt by Amazon, super efficient next day delivery etc, but I ordered a single comic on Monday. It finally dispatched on Thursday at close of business, with an accompanying email telling me it'll take 3-5 working days. Worst case a nine day turn around, with a £3 postal charge. The comic was a tenner, so approximately a third of the items cost on top for postage to… Read Full Review

“Will never use again”

Written on: 27/07/2017 by 37Olson (1 review written)

Waited 21 days for my first order and it still didn't arrive. Called customer service was told my order would be resent using a traceable postal service immediately. A week later I've just been notified that my items have been sent again using second class mail. That means if they arrive I'll be waiting over a month. Shockingly bad service and I will NEVER order from you again. No goods delivered Poor Customer service Probably the worst experience I've ever had buying goods online… Read Full Review

“Subscription Service”

Written on: 14/06/2017 by dinoroar (1 review written)

So far I've had a subscription service booked since March. I've had one delivery of a few comics from May, nothing at all from April and no mention of anything happening in June. After not receiving anything for weeks I contacted Forbidden Planet help, who were very helpful and told me that this week I'd see everything else I was expecting. This is again not the case and I'm still not going to receive everything from May with no word when I'll see them anyway. Support were helpful but I needed… Read Full Review

“Would not tell the truth about delivery of itemd”

Written on: 24/05/2017 by SamnthaM (1 review written)

Order of Tekken signed comic. I was told both via email AND by phone that my order was priority shipped yesterday via DPD, yet it still says in my account awaiting stock. Can someone please tell me the truth about what is going on as I spoke to 4 people on your helpline AND was told via email that you have them. I desperately need and still want this order and would appreciate being told the truth rather than constantly being told it will ship that day. Furthermore despite being told that… Read Full Review

“Terrible comic packaging”

Written on: 09/02/2017 by degreesofseparation (1 review written)

Forbidden Planet were originally a comic book store, starting life in Denmark Street in London. I visited a few times on trips to London in the 80s. Oh how they have forgotten their roots! They should know that comics are precious to collectors, we want near mint copies of our new comics; using current grading parlance, we want 9.8s or at worst 9.6 comics. But the way they are handled and shipped by FP make this a rare chance of happening. First they stuff as many as SIX comics in a bag… Read Full Review

Order for a comic placed on 04/01, dispatch email not received until 09/01, still no item received at the end of the 3 - 5 days quoted for delivery. Compare this with the comic shop found on Amazon; order for same comic placed on 08/01 when I was bored with waiting for FP, dispatch email received 09/01, comic received 11/01. Pathetic… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2016 by Ysalt (1 review written)

I made a purchase on 20/12/16 I have just received no email 29/12/16 to say that it has ONLY just been dispatched. When I ordered the book there was no information on your website to say how long it would take to be delivered and none the on the email I got to say that I had purchased the book. This was supposed to have been a Christmas present. At least with other websites you some information on what is happening. I do understand that it as been Christmas but to give no information on what is… Read Full Review

I placed an order for "neverwhere - illustrated edition" on the 9th of December as the product was showing in stock. checked on the 16th as goods had not been delivered and the status was still"not shipped". contacted Customer Services who stated it was being shipped that day (Friday 16th) so all good i thought.

“Awful service ”

Written on: 24/12/2016 by 106Hart (1 review written)

Purchased an item charged an excessive amount of postage no tracking number provided even though for the amount I would have expected some form of facility to be able to locate where my order is? Quick enough to take my money but not to provide me with a reference? Ordered in the past with no issue but for some reason the ability to both provide a minimum level of customer service and delivery record disappeared Won't be back that's for sure… Read Full Review

I'm sure their stores are lovely, but their mail order service is absolutely awful. I ordered products in plenty of time but the order was held up as items that were allegedly in stock, really weren't. Still not received my order and currently looking to ruin my daughter's christmas. Thanks… Read Full Review
