    absolutely REDICULOUS! if your going to now show offers of whats going off in your stores then you must offer throughout ALL stores luckily i dont live 100 miles away from hanley im in nottingham but youve got to understand this is just going to annoy your customer base to level 5000%, i find it odd that all your stores and the website all ran differently i think you should all pool together as one and hopefully eventually bring back the website which i did place an order on for £147 on the final night

      Hey Chris,
      Thanks for your comments. This post will be updated shortly as there are many more than just the Hanley (Stoke-On-Trent) store that are partaking in the sale. As for stocking sale items across all of our stores, it is ultimately down to the store itself to place orders from the warehouse and sometimes they simply don’t have the space to take the stock. If you have any outstanding orders from the old retail site you can get the details using the “What about my orders?” page and then contact with your order number/s and we will endeavor to get you sorted out as quickly as possible.

    Wow this is rubbish I spent loads on the old online shop. Who’s idea was this shame on you bring back the old website as I will not be buying on this one at the moment

    • Lee.Eardley says:

      Hi Martin,
      You can not buy anything from this web site anymore. Therefore this site now focuses on our physical stores for the foreseeable future. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

  3. Josh says:

    Are the offers you show on this website only available in your shops?
    Do you sale anything on this website now
    Tried your “Contact Us” email address and it does not work.

    Hi , firstly I can’t believe you can’t order from the website now .. I’ve alway spent a lot of money each month on the website.. I live 60 miles away from the nearest store.. so I have to shop somewhere else now .. so have forbidden planet shops got any plans where you can phone the shop up and orders can then be shipped direct from the store .. thanks

    • Lee.Eardley says:

      Hi Dave,
      First off let us just say that it was for customers like yourself that we kept the home shopping division going for many years. It is indeed a massive shame we had to close our home shopping division. We are currently focusing on our physical stores until further notice. Unfortunately none of our stores has the ability to ship mail order items at this time. We thank you for your custom and hope you can get to pop in now and then considering your distance.

    I’m over 70 miles from the nearest store. I spend hundreds each month on forbidden planet online. I’m super disappointed in the online side closing. It doesn’t help that the “local” shop manager runs his FP shop like a dictatorship & makes you feel unwelcome when buying lots of stuff. I make a point of not going to the shop because of him & buy online.
    Just to add, I’ve never seen a chase funko in my store & when i asked about them they kinda laughed at me. (I’ve found chases in all my other local toy stores) At least there was a chance of getting a chase if you’re purchasing online.

      Hi Shaun,
      we appreciate all of our customers whether you spend £5 or £500 and you should not ever feel like you’re causing a nuisance and the like. Shop Staff are there to help you the customer, that’s their job, especially the Manager!

      When it comes to Funko Pop!s it always gets messy especially when there are Chase figures involved. We advise all of our stores to put out everything regardless of what it is. Very often they are 1 in 6 and get snaffled up pretty quickly. If you would like to get in touch with me just email and put Att of: Lee, and I will try and sort out/resolve any issues you may have.

      Thank you for your custom.

    Hi, when does this sale end?

  7. DC says:

    What a joke, A company falls on hard times and restructures its business to stay trading and they get nothing but bad attitudes as a result!

    Personally I’d rather have the stores still open than order online, i much prefer mooching round a shop than sat looking through web pages, always end up leaving with something I’d never thought about getting before i went in.

    • Crowbar says:

      Hi DC,
      I’m with you! I used to love visiting my local Pop Culture store back in the day, meeting like-minded fellows and like you say discovering new things! I think we’ve all been spoiled with this next day delivery business. 😉

  8. CG says:

    Since you closed your online store do you have plans to open anymore stores. Like in Hull. Leeds and Sheffield are a bit far to go just to browse.

    • Crowbar says:

      Hi CG,
      We are indeed looking at opening more stores, unfortunately nothing on the East Coast as of yet but I will ask the “higher-ups” why we don’t have a store over your side! 🙂 As for the distance, it is a bit of a bummer, even more so if you don’t drive. But myself and my mates used to take day trips over hundreds of miles be it by car or train. Maybe times have changed and we’ve all been spoiled by the internet, but a day out with mates checking out the things you love are some of my fondest memories. 🙂

    Can the other store like in Newcastle forbidden planet get some new pops and exclusives that international get in store and why are the chases like £23 and in your leeds shop there are only £14.99…. Also would be good for myself and others to get some hot topic exclusives with stickers in store….

    • Crowbar (FPI) says:

      Hi Chris,
      The Newcastle Forbidden Planet is nothing to do with us. While we share a similar name we are two different companies! As for Hot Topic stickers on Funko Pops, we do get some on occasion but it is completely random what we are sent from Funko themselves. Hope this helps!

  10. Ryan says:

    Hello iv order loads of pops online with forbidden planet and can no longer see and of my orders. I disagree with the new site as I can see pending pre orders. Will I get a refund at all or are you still going to go along with the orders people have taken before the website went down for a update

    • Crowbar (FPI) says:

      Hi Ryan,
      Only outstanding orders will be emailed to you. We are honouring all orders placed up until Sep 8th 2018. Very shortly all customers with outstanding orders will be contacted via email with instructions of what to do next. Hope this helps.
