Amazing

I have been to many different Forbidden Planets, and I have to say this one is one of my favorites. the guy who served me knows his stuff and was more than helpful. He also recommended a couple of books I probably wouldn't have picked up. I could spend all day in forbidden planet, spending all the money that I have as well.

Fabulous shop. Lots of choice and a wide range of products available. I attended their Pusheen event which was well organised and the staff was fantastic. I would recommend others to visit this store to check it out :)

Excellent shop

Its a typical Forbidden Planet store, a very jammed back full of stuff to delight any punter who enters the building, excellent items to tempt you to spend money, good staff and a place that always is a treat to visit even just window shopping.

Its a geek paradise just like most Forbidden planet shops, not as big as the one in London, but still offers an amazing amount of items, easily spend quality time in this shop, bring credit card.

Good shop but some staff need to learn some manners
Feb 2018 • Family
My children love going to this shop to see and buy from it's impressive display of collectibles and toys. However, after several visits there are a couple of staff, one in particular who need to learn some manners.
No 'hello', no 'please', no 'thank you' or anything that resembles good manners. Call me old fashioned but I like a smile when I'm giving my hard earned money.
How can a large customer base of children ever learn manners themselves when some staff in this shop are simply 'rude'.
Sort it out Forbidden Planet!

One of the best comic book stores in Birmingham
Jun 2017 • Family
I visit this store on a regular basis and they are great. The store is always clean and tidy, they have excellent knowlegable staff who are always happy to help. They have great disabled access aswell so don't hesitate to visit. Forbidden Planet is the place to visit of you are looking for anything comic book related. They have everything from comics, to pop figures, to film/comic apparel.
