“Great prices, great service”

Written on: 22/04/2014

I am very pleased with the service rendered by Forbidden Planet. The items were so much more affordable and the delivery prices were very reasonable. As much as I love my local comic book store, it seems a bit extortionate to be paying nearly £10 for a short-box. The item was dispatched quickly considering when I placed the order which is always a bonus. Overall, I'd whole-heartedly recommend Forbidden Planet to anyone.

“Best prices around! ”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by DriscyG (1 review written)

The website is well laid out and looks professional. The prices far surpass any other comic store I can find and in some cases were up to £4 cheaper! Recently found out about the website and will be using for the foreseeable future. My only negative is that the dispatch times were the maximum of 3 days. Ideally I would like it to take less time to process my orders but when the prices are as cheap as they are this tiny downside will be overlooked. Order number 3021354… Read Full Review

“Great Selection of Memorabilia.”

Written on: 14/03/2014

I pre-ordered an item from Forbidden Planet not sure when I was going to receive it. After a short delay in processing the pre-order I noticed that the item was out of stock so I was a little concerned that my order may not be fulfilled due to stock issues but thankfully they sent me an email saying they sent the item and only two days later it was in my hands, excellent delivery. Okay £18 for international postage might seem steep for some, but it was very well packaged and with the item I… 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

“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

“Good selection of different goods”

Written on: 11/12/2013

I found ordering very easy on there web site. The selection of Marvel clothes was great and the site is nice and easy to navigate around. The only problem I have is that they don't let you know if one of your items has since become unavailable but was when you ordered it. Also when it will be posted out to you… Read Full Review

“Two generations of Forbidden Planet devotion!”

Written on: 06/12/2013 by SonicLunchbox (1 review written)

I love your store and was a regular visitor in the 80s when I lived in London. I just wish there was one in Sydney especially as I have two boys (10 and 13) and they were in heaven when we visited the London store in 2012. So that leads me to my only complaint…shipping costs a fortune! Ugh! There is so much more we'd love to buy but the shipping costs outweigh the value. We would love there to be an option for slow mail. We don't mind waiting. Now that the website is faster, ordering is so… Read Full Review

“Very Funny, Great Gift!”

Written on: 01/12/2013 by RollingBlunder (1 review written)

I recently purchased this as a small secret Santa gift for a friend as it seemed to have a great degree of charm about it mixed in with some dark humor too. Exactly what I was looking for! The book recently arrived and of course I had to 'check' to see whether it was as good as it looked online. I was not disappointed, the book has a great blend of twisted comics as well as some very innocent but well thought out cartoons too. The paper quality and printing is decent and it doesn't feel as… Read Full Review

“comic book order review”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by DevilPigeon (1 review written)

The site is really well set out and easy to use, I like how the order process is really simple and remembers most of your information such as delivery address. The dispatch time could be a little quicker as the item was in stock but it still took 4 working days to dispatch. However the items always come really well packaged and never damaged. I have never had to use customer service, which in my eyes is a good thing but I know it's there if needed. Overall I am happy with the service. Order No… Read Full Review

“Expensive but good”

Written on: 19/07/2013 by TheCoolestNerdd (1 review written)

In summary, postage is extortionate. The service is good in concept, but the postage mounts up quickly and large orders can become fragmented as the site tries to source your order from many different stores and whilst this can lead to a large range of stock, it also leads to the website being behind on what it can and cannot provide, leaving me without comics several times. The site also lists loads of unstocked items they do not plan to restock which can eb incredibly frustrating… Read Full Review

“Never shopped with this company before but I bought an...”

Written on: 05/05/2010 by Daisy Johnson (1 review written)

Never shopped with this company before but I bought an Aliens Powerloader statue from forbiddenplanet.com as they were offering the best online price. No problems with placing the actual order as the staff we're both polite, friendly and seemed to know all about the item I was buying. The statue was despatched in 24 hours, a tracking number emailed to me and the parcel received in a couple of days. As I was buying a large, expensive item it was nice to be able to call and speak to a human… Read Full Review
