A Shop in Belfast and Dublin (It is also in many other cities as well - Check the bag to see, they're on that). It's pretty much a geek shop (I shop in it by the way x3). It sells all sorts of comics and magazines from marvel heroes to mangas. Action figures, T-Shirts, and band merchindise (I don't like the band merchindise in there, to tell you the truth =_= ). It also sells video games. Don't deny that it's a geek shop, now. :P It sells COMICS, MANGAS, all sorts of VIDEO GAMES, ACTION FIGURES (May they be marvel action heroes, marvel action hero BEARS(o_O), characters from various films, people from bands eg. Sex Pistols and Fall Out Boy etc.), etc. Forbidden Planet also sells role playing books and (you'll stare at the monitor thinking "WTH?!" after reading this part XD) collections of realistic looking WEAPONS and SHIELDS from various movies/series/sagas such as "Buffy The Vampire Slayer". The staff are uber nice :3
NOTE: May I remind you, I enjoy this shop very muchly, and I am not taking the mickey, because this is what it actually sells :D And I am saying that it's a geek shop and I am also admitting that I must BE a geek because of what I buy in there :P eg. Comics :$
I am NOT a nerd though o_O
Note2: AVOID the etchi section at ALL cost!! >_<...(I call it that because the first time I passed it, the first thing I noticed was a topless anime/manga character woman person (wth? XD). o_o
'Kay, I'll shut up now :3
Today I went into Forbidden Planet to buy Hellsing Volume 2 and 3 from the manga. Unfortunately, only Volumes 5 and 6 were there, but I bought 6 anyway, seeing as I didn't have it at the time. I also searched for a "How To Draw Manga" book while I was there, and I also looked for D&D beginners books (God, I AM a geek o_O''')
One of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. Holds up very well today even though it was made in 1956. Stars Leslie Nielsen, Walter Pidgeon and Ann Francis. Special effects by folks from Disney Studios. Introduced the amazing "Robby the Robot". Cool electronic music score. Joins "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and "The Thing from Another World" as the most enduring sci-fi movies from the 1950s.
The first time I saw "Forbidden Planet" I was ten years old and couldn't sleep for a week!
