Forbidden Planet is the UK's biggest retailer of science fiction, fantasy and cult merchandise.

Action figures are one of Forbidden Planet's main product-lines, but they also stock a huge variety of other weird and wonderful products including comic books, graphic novels, Manga DVDs, horror fiction and gaming merchandise.
The company has a flagship store in Shaftesbury Avenue, London although has also recently opened a large store in central Bristol. Other store locations include Birmingham, Cambridge, Coventry, Liverpool, Southampton and Newcastle.
