  • This place was cool. Great range of products to look at, some of which I haven't see elsewhere. Downstairs was slightly confusing where they keep the comics but I still enjoyed looking around. The staff were also very nice and friendly.
  • I had an AMAZING time at Forbidden Planet! I loved the Doctor Who and Star Wars sections, I just wish anyone in London carried Red Dwarf paraphernalia! I also suggest their satchel bags they sell at the front. I got one, and it has actually become one of my favorite bags. I'll have to get 2 next time! It's bigger on the inside.
