    Well the first link is the web site for the forbidden planet store chain so should be fine. http://forbiddenplanet.com

    No idea who the second one is though.

    If they're the same company, why the price differences?

    I think they`re different companies look at their titles on their website one says just forbbiden planet the other is forbbiden planet international. One of the owners of fpi has posted at statueforum a few times i`m sure I remember him saying they`re different companies.

    Hi

    We are 2 separate companies.

    We were all on company until around 10 years ago when the group split in two with sale of the distribution business Titan distributors. Our group Forbidden Planet International - with the .co.uk address grew out of Sci Fi Bookshop in Edinburgh (hence our northern bias) which began in 1975 - we have 17 stores including the ones in Dublin and New York (hence the international). The other group - with the .com address, grew from the above mentioned distribution business and opened their first shop around 1979/80 - they have 9 stores including the one in London. Both legit long running businesses - but not the same company - which is why we price differently.

    I wouldn't worry about it,
    your goods will be with you before they update their website,
    going on all my past orders. :D
    I've got orders I received last year that haven't been updated in the "my account" section of their website yet. :rolleyes:
    I've always had responses to my emails within 24 hours though so you could use their "contact us" form to ask anything. :thumbsup:
