Yo, can anyone here vouch for Forbidden Planet (as in this forbidden planet
, there are two
) as an online retailer? I know that they have a habit of steep prices but I've only bought in-store from them and so I haven't a clue how reliable they are regarding shipping and all that jazz
Decided to bite anyway and (FINALLY) grabbed myself a Generations Springer at last-cost just shy of (or just over, i forget
) £25 shipped, which is pretty much cheaper than I've seen him anywhere other than possibly ebay, but being under 18 I can't have an ebay account of my own, making that option a right swine. Either way I'm happy with what I paid, and excited for it to arrive
Right there are 2 Forbidden Planets online who both have the same Logos! One is the UK branch and the other is the Scottish (which is cheaper on some things). You often find both companies turning up to shows as well such as the LFCC and competing against each other event though the parent company is essentially the same.
If you switch between both companies you will find the same product on both web sites at different prices. Shop around and you can get some good deals.http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/https://www.forbiddenplanet.com/
Also consider the American Amazon website, quiet a lot of their toys you can order(given the £ is really strong against the $ atm it works out fairly cheap on some items). The postage is usually fairly cheap and you can often pay the import tax upfront avoiding the handling fees. Plus if Amazon US don't get charged for the import tax they refund you the money. Has happened a few times to me when I suddenly got a payment from amazon after a few months for that exact reason.
