Forbidden Planet Manchester is awesome. Always friendly, a tonne of stock. Good prices. Can get very warm in summer! But still an awesome place to shop.

Very cool 😎 Mine and my girlfriends favourite shop to visit when ever we go to town. They have a massive selection of nerdy stuff available. The staff have always seemed very nice and the shop always looks good. Never looks low on stock. The quality of the one piece figures we bought in there were amazing and the giant selection of manga and comics are also amazing. It's easy to stumble on things you never knew before while browsing this store which you may end up loving.

Forbidden Planet have an incredible range of manga, comics, collectables, board games and other high quality products. It has two floors stuffed with collectable goodness.
However, the prices of some of these items can be quite high.
The place isn't very popular so there isn't an issue with crowds but the stairway to the underground floor is quite narrow.
Overall, I would recommend Forbidden Planet to people who are looking specifically for collectables.

Nerd heaven!! Full of merchandise from practically everything you could think of, ranging from Pop vinyl figures to comic books to manga. The staff are also super friendly and helpful and prices are pretty decent. One of my favourite shops in Manchester!

Brilliant store. Really well stocked with friendly, knowledgeable staff. I also like how well lit it is, which sounds daft but makes a difference!
