Featured Collector: Evan ColeWednesday, May 1, 2013

I originally started collecting McFarlane figures when I was around 13. Having a 3d interpretation of a favorite comic book character or movie creature or character is amazing.
I started collecting Sideshow statues in April of 2008. A friend at work told me about Sideshow, and I never looked back. My first statue was an Exclusive version of The Thing Premium Format Figure, and he is still proudly displayed in my collection. The amount of detail in Sideshow statues blows me away.
Some of my favorite pieces include the Dr. Doom Premium Format Figure, the Optimus Prime Maquette, the Venom Life-Size Bust, and the Joker Premium Format Figure. Every one of these are stunning in person.
His ‘Grail’ Collectibles
I do have a couple of “grails” that I’ve always kept an eye out for; The Lord of Darkness Life-Size Bust and the Pumpkinhead Maquette. I came in a little late in the game to get those. Although my most recent one would have to be the Wolf Predator Legendary Scale Figure – the pose and sculpt for that piece are wicked!
