“Delivery”

Written on: 28/10/2017 by Danteq432 (1 review written)

The only thing that needs improvement is delivery. Alot of time the product does not come within 3-5 days. And alot of times a product that has been released and dispatched might be delivered before a previous order thats still has not been delivered which ruins fhe reading order… Read Full Review

“Shipping costs more than my order itself to Canada”

Written on: 17/08/2017 by CidRaines (1 review written)

Forbidden Planet has a good variety of products that are hard to find in Canada. I was happy to find some Limited Edition Slipcase books that are not available here. I placed an order and waited for the email to tell me how much my tracking would be, and at my greatest surprise, it was slightly more than my order itself due to the weight. So my total ended up doubling itself. I was not happy at all. I had to order these to secure copies which are now out of stock. There was nothing they could… Read Full Review

“Incorrect image for the paperback version”

Written on: 20/07/2017 by iweryiqoeytpq (1 review written)

I am disappointed as the image used on your website is the one for the hardback version, and I had assumed when I made the purchase that I was buying a hardback copy (for a very good price for a hardback, to be fair, though now I know why it seemed a good price). I'm happy with the paperback version, unless you feel inclined to honour the implied contract ;-) I strongly urge you to change the image or add a clear message next to it to remove any possibility of misunderstanding. It looks like… Read Full Review

“Great range of products, terrible delivery”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by SelenaO'Neil (1 review written)

For a company this size and the range of products they offer it's a shame that their online experience is terrible. The site isn't easy to use, but you'll get through that if you really need/want something. The thing that really got me is the checkout and the delivery process. Not only couldn't I choose any other delivery options than second class (which costs £4 standard), it also takes ages to reach you. My order took 3 days to process and then takes 3-5 working days to deliver second class… Read Full Review

“Good range of products, unnecessary shipping rates”

Written on: 01/06/2017 by Woody567 (1 review written)

Usually I purchase all my comics off of EBay due to ease, however due to missing the initial release of Secret Empire #0 they had all sold out. Luckily I find out that Forbidden Planet have some in stock so am eager to purchase, however am heavily put off by the extreme shipping rates! £1.00 for 1 comic! Of course I would prefer my comic to arrive in pristine condition, but EBay sellers can do that and free shipping! I am extremely unhappy with the charge and will unlikely purcahase again… Read Full Review

“why the delay on posting”

“Postage protection poor!”

Written on: 10/05/2017 by Mr_Burt (1 review written)

I received the an item recently, but was very unsatisfied with the protection the comic had. It was bagged in a creased and unsealed (previously used?) 2mil bag, no backing board or inner package support (as most other online retailers routinely do for new comics - often with free postage) and the flimsy cardboard packaging was not up to resisting the large fold it received either at dispatch or during transit. This resulted in a significant spine and partial cover crease that transferred to… Read Full Review

“More communication required”

Written on: 23/12/2016 by 165Lewis (1 review written)

I was over the moon to see you had what I wanted in stock. Sadly, seeing an email to let me know my item has been despatched on the Wednesday when I'd ordered it on the Saturday, strikes me as poor service. If you're too busy at Christmas with regards to even getting items out of the door, please let people know… Read Full Review

Product range is great but every time I order online I'm disappointed with the lengthy process. Ordered on 11th December 10 days later still nothing. It says allow 3-5 days ? And for the last he delivery cost I'd expect 1st class not second. Not great… Read Full Review

“Slow Delivery”

Written on: 17/11/2016

3-5 WORKING days PLUS the time it takes to process your order means you might be waiting a while. Especially if you order on a Wednesday for new comics - Usually takes 2 days to even process your order so they won't get despatched until late Friday probably, then this "3-5 working days" is in effect which can take you up to the following Friday. Not good. Yes you save a little from buying in store, but with the price of postage you're not really saving anything at all. I just wish it was a… Read Full Review

“Good but room for improvment”

Written on: 16/11/2016 by wlMueller304 (1 review written)

I like using FP, the comics are well packaged and good value for money, but there are some kinks that need ironing out. 1) Sometimes the comics I have ordered, weekly titles, are sent out on the Monday after the Wednesday they arrive in stock, so that's six days (including the weekend), to ship out comic books, not including up to five days for delivery. This is becoming rarer now though, with titles going out on the Wednesday or Thursday, so I hope it lasts. 2)In almost every delivery I'll… 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.

“Dispatch time too long”

Written on: 12/08/2016 by NatalyPike (1 review written)

ordered items at 10:30 ish on a Friday and items not dispatched until almost 4 full business days later 5 if you count a Saturday. Delivery charge is quite high in comparison to other suppliers within the UK and also gives slower shipping of up to 3-4 working days meaning over a full working week for order to receipt. Very disappointing, I would not use the service again without knowing of a major improvement in turn around… Read Full Review

“Not too pleased ”

Written on: 10/07/2016 by Lollymau (1 review written)

The delivery was fast and on time and the product is not bad, however around the hat is all dried glue which doesnt look good. It doesn't scratch off so is permanently there effecting how it looks. I'm unable to find somewhere to email to try and sort out getting another one, which u find rather annoying. Iv searched everywhere for one. It was a fathers day present and I was very excited to see my dad's face when he got it. I was very disappointed… Read Full Review
