We’ve teamed up with our friends at Forbidden Planet and Gentle Giant Studios to bring you the best coverage of the Gentle Giant event at Forbidden Planet later this week.  The fun starts at 5pm on Friday 24th October at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore which can be found at 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR.  More details on the event below...

To kick things off we’ve got four Gentle Giant products to giveaway BEFORE the event (plus more AFTER the event too) along with a chance to meet Karl Meyer.  Courtesy of Forbidden Planet and Gentle Giant we’ve got...

To be in with a chance of winning one of these fantastic prizes you need to ensure that you’re available to collect your prize on Friday 24th October from 5pm at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore where you’ll be presented with your prize by the founder and president of Gentle Giant – Karl Meyer – if you’re able to attend then send us an e-mail here (not our regular e-mail address for competitions) along with your name, address and daytime phone number. 

The draw will take place at midday on Thursday 23rd October and the winners will be notified by telephone.  If you’re unable to attend the event we reserve the right to award your prize to somebody that can.  There is no monetary equivalent to the prizes stated and the winners will have to make their own way to the Forbidden Planet London Megastore at 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR – no expenses will be paid.
