Sideshow Featured Collector: Odeh Neshawait

Collector: Odeh Neshawait

Location: Chicago, IL

How and when did you start collecting?

I start collecting since I was a young kid around 6 years old. I started with Superheroes from Marvel and DC, Wrestling figures, G.I.Joes, and Thundercats. Then when I got into my early 20s. I start collecting Super Robots such as Mazinger and Grendizer. 2012 I got into collecting 1/6 scale figures and focused on Hot Toys, and 2015 I started focusing on 1/4 scale statues from Marvel and DC.

What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars Collectibles, Batman, etc.?

I believe collecting is a form of art, and it should tell a story to the viewer. My main collection is broken into the following: 1/4 scale statues: Villains Marvel & DC, Heroes such as Spider-man, Superman, Batman, Avengers, and X-MEN, 1/6 Hot Toys scale figures: Marvel shelf, DC shelf, Sci-fi classic movies that I LOVE shelf.

What makes your collection unique?

What makes my collection unique is the way I try to present it. I’m always evolving my display, and looking for new ways to improve it by building custom displays, and adding LED lightings. I believe most of the collectors have the same pieces, but what set us a part is how we present them!

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

It’s hard to pick since they are all my kids, but if I have to choose then it would be Thanos on Throne.

What items are on your wish-list?

The new Sideshow’s Joker is really impressive from what I see, and I’m looking forward to add him to my collection.
