Featured Collector: Shahid IbrarWednesday, July 17, 2013

I started collecting about three years ago when I was searching the net for The Expendables movie. I came across Hot Toys’ Barney Ross figure and thought to myself what the heck is this, it looks exactly like Stallone who has been my favorite actor since childhood! I searched almost all day to figure out what it was and where it was from, until finally discovering the Sideshow website and the rest is history.
I had few figures from different makers before Sideshow and used to think they were best out there, but Sideshow’s figures are on the next level!
My big boy Uzayr (9) and little daughter Humaira (5) love my collection. Humaira is always counting them. Whenever I receive my new figures she says, “Oh Daddy you’ve got 5 (7, 10, 15) of them now!” My wife Halima secretly loves my collection too but would never say so.
My favorites from my collection have to be my Terminator and Superman figures, although if I had known about Sideshow earlier it would have definitely been the Rocky series figures.
I never got to buy The Expendables Barney Ross figure as it was sold out by the time I found it. But now as an experience collector I pre-order my figures, and as a result I just got my Expendables 2 Barney Ross figure last week from Sideshow.
