The Busiest Shopping Day of this Blog

If you can’t find Holiday presents for your friends and family at Forbidden Planet then you’re not opening your eyes. The place is a minefield of spectacular sundries for the geek or geek-curious! Kick-ass T-shirts, action figures, Manga, games, prop replicas, cut rate black-market diamonds, and of course, COMIC BOOKS!

You didn’t know about the black-market diamond ring that operates out of the Planet? Ask at the counter; you just have to know the password. Be subtle: “Hey, you got any non-crystal light refractors?” or “Where is your alternative glass cutter section?”


If you or anyone you know owns a torso and could use a breezy torso cover, the Forbidden Planet offers a wide array of cloth; durable breast-wrappers guaranteed to conceal your naked flesh while ironically proclaiming your love of sci-fi, comics, and horror. Tailored to leave your arms free for swinging and tattoo display, Forbidden Planet “T-Shirts” come in ALL sizes and almost any TV show, horror flick, or comic book character you could want.

Don’t see the size or shirt you want? ASK! The holidays are a busy retail time and MAYBE we have it in the back…under a crate of bootleg diamonds.

Halloween Costume Ideas 2010: Sonic Screwdrivers

If you’re planning a Doctor Who costume for this year’s festivities a Sonic Screwdriver is essential.  Forbidden Planet’s got you covered if you’re looking for one with authentic lights and sounds.  If you’re looking for one that will help you BS your way out of nearly any jam, however, you’re outta luck.

We’re currently selling the 10th Doctor’s handy gizmo

Doctor Who 10th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver

and the 11th Doctor’s doodad

Doctor Who 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdrver

If  you’ve been invited to a Halloween soiree, last-minute, and you need a costume quickly this will usually do the trick, with or without a pinstriped suit, Chuck Taylors, or a bow tie.  Especially effective if  you know someone at the gig who will appreciate your dorky ingenuity as you party down in leather chaps, sans underwear, waving your Screwdriver around, and proclaiming yourself the 14th Doctor.
