Forbidden Planet Store
Forbidden Planet might not be "sexy" in the conventional sense, more in the sense that "geek is chic." In case you were wondering, Forbidden Planet is the largest retailer in the world catering to science fiction, fantasy and cult entertainment fans.
The app allows you to directly purchase right from your iPhone, whether it be a action figure, book, comic, DVD, graphic novel or something else. The company is based in the UK, so everything is priced in pounds, but it has a wide variety of products if you're looking for that hard to find Alien figure, or Batman: Dark Knight comic.
You can also download exclusive content straight from the app, and it lets to scan a products bar-code to see if Forbidden Planet has it in stock. If you are based in London, you can also use the app to find the store closest to you.-- Written by Chris Ciaccia in New York >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/commodity_bull. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
