From the website:
"Founded in April 1981, Forbidden Planet NYC has been a staple to tourists and locals alike for its wide selection in alternative hobbies, such as graphic novels, comic books, role-playing games, manga and anime, and a wide selection of collectible figurines and statues.
Since then, we've undergone several transformations, most notably moving our store to 13th Street and Broadway in 1996.
Here at the Planet, we believe in providing our customers with the best merchandise possible with exceptional customer service from our knowledgeable staff. We are always expanding the store with more products to fit our patrons needs. So be sure to check the website often for updates!"
