Ryan ‘Ryno’ Farrokhi
I enjoy collecting because of the pure nostalgic feeling of getting a new toy. I remember as a child getting a new toy, opening it up, playing with the accessories… This just brings me back, in a more mature, yet still childlike fashion.
I started as a kid, around 5-8 years old, collecting Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers toys, and eventually graduated to McFarlane Spawn and Sports Picks figures. I took a long hiatus and got into other hobbies, like sports jerseys and watches, but I fell back into love with toys when I saw an article about the Hot Toys Bane (actually linked via a watch article featuring a Bane watch by Diesel).
Now I collect Hot Toys and other sixth scale figures, and I haven’t looked back since! I’ve even started my own YouTube channel, and a blog where I review sixth scale figures called Glitch Force. As you can see, I am very passionate about this hobby!
I’m just getting into statues, with the Apocalypse Premium Format Figure on pre-order (but technically he’s 1/6 scale too, since he can grow to any size :c).
- Likes to Collect
- For Hot Toys and Sideshow, I absolutely love both the DX11 and Sideshow Joker figures. Also the Hot Toys Avengers and Marvel line.
- My favorite would have to be a custom sixth scale figure Walter White from Breaking Bad. I have a feeling, though, that the Apocalypse figure will be my new favorite. An honorable mention in my favorites is a little custom Ryno figure I made to represent myself, with his own custom Hot Toys Sideshow shipper that I made as well.
- I can’t wait to get my Apocalypse, which is set to release around my birthday in June. Other than that, I am really excited for the Hot Toys Man of Steel figure and Sideshow’s sixth scale Batman figure!
