Things to do on a Weekend #7 – Forbidden Planet (dotCom)
Forbidden Planet ( dotCom ) are turning 30 and to celebrate this they are offering 30% off Everything(usual small print applies ) . There will be goody bags, TShirts ( for the first 30) and StormTroopers keeping the peace.
Whilst nostalgia may not be like it used to be, I for one am happy that some things are making a comeback. Especially the ‘People Like Us’ Graphic which was used as an in 2000AD and which I remember seeing and then pleading with my parients ( hey I was nearly 11 ) to take me to my nearest Forbidden Planet store. Its History can be read over at Danacea s blog.
Since I mention Danacea its worth giving a huge tip of the hat to Danie Ware, Forbidden Planets own Marketing Maven whose Social Media presence in Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and occasionally her own Blog has created a space online where the heart and soul of geek and fandom alike can contribute their experiences.
Thanks for Reading.
