How and when did you start collecting?

It all started from a cousin of mine who showed me his collection and invited me to STGCC — Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention, Singapore’s own Comic-Con event. It grabbed my attention and interest in all those statue and 1/6 figurines. The beauty of having your favorite character created into a figurine and statue in different scale and  kept in your house as a display and to admire it everyday, looking at it. I consider myself still new to this hobby. I  have been collecting for 2 years and still counting.

Haikel's CollectionWhat do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars™ collectibles, Batman, etc.?

I collect mostly Marvel or DC figurines or statues or even helmets and weapons.

What makes your collection unique?

I believe that if even you collect a small figurine, big figurine, weapons only, helmet only, if you enjoy what you collect, in your point of view, it is unique. My collection is a mixture of helmets and weapons and statues and figurines. More to come.

What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?

1:3 scale Aquaman by Imaginarium Arts

What items are on your wish-list?

I don’t have any Spider-Man figurine statues yet and I want to spend big on Spider-Man as he is my favorite character. So my wish list is Spider-Man Life Size scale or the upcoming Legendary scale.
