Fahad almansour pc builder autographed funko pop collector

PC building has levelled up in Qatar over the past few years, with more and more creators making themed PC builds that look awesome with great functional performance too.

Fahad Almansour is a Qatari PC builder known for his Crystal, Batmobile, and Acid builds. Get to know more about him, his themed PC builds, and his unique autographed Funko Pop collection.

ILQ: Can you tell us about yourself?

FA: My name is Fahad Almansour, also known as VEx on my social media channels.

My first PC was built by Store974, and I fell in love with the gaming world ever since! My favourite games are Call of Duty & Apex Legends.

ILQ: How did you start PC building?

FA: After Store974 built my first PC, I fell in love with technology and the PC world.

This is when I started to build my PCs with their help. They helped me create builds with creative themes.

ILQ: Can you tell us about the themed PCs you built with Store974?

FA: The first PC I built was the Crystal. It was purely built from my imagination.

We used brass metal pipes from Alphacool, and the case itself is acrylic and metal from Barrowch, giving it the overall crystal look.

The hardware used for this build are:

  • CPU - i9 11900KF
  • Motherboard - Asus Rog Maximus XIII Apex wifi
  • GPU - Zotac 3090 Trinity OC 24GB

I also built a Batmobile-themed PC because who doesn’t love DC?! We used acrylic pipes from Corsair and a full metal case from Barrowch limited edition for this build.

The hardware used for this build are:

  • CPU - i9 12900 KF
  • Motherboard - MSI MPG Z690 Carbon Wifi
  • GPU - MSI 3090 Ti Gaming X Trio

For the Acid build, we used plastic pipes from EK. The case is acrylic and metal from Barrowch as well. The hardware used for this build are:

  • CPU - i9 12900KS
  • Motherboard - MSI MAG Z690 Torpedo EK X
  • GPU - Zotac 3090 Trinity OC 24GB

ILQ: Do you have any plans for a new themed PC?

FA: Yes! I am planning a unique build for Demon Slayer fans. I am working on building a Nezuko box PC build soon.

ILQ: What would you advise those who want to build their PCs?

FA: I would advise them to start with the help of Store974. The staff there is very helpful and super friendly and will teach you all the tips and tricks of PC building.

ILQ: Can you tell us about your autographed Funk Pop collection?

FA: I started collecting them in 2018. My first autographed Funko Pop is Ken Kaneki from the anime Tokyo Ghoul. It is signed by Austin Tindle, the voice actor for the English dubbed anime.

Since then, I have collected 20 autographed Funko Pops and almost 250 regular Funko Pops.

ILQ: Which of your autographed Funko Pops would you say is your favourite?

FA: My favourite autographed Funko Pop is my Freddy Krueger one which is autographed by Robert Englund, who played the character in the Nightmare on Elm Street horror film series.

It's a one-of-a-kind piece, the only one in the world.

ILQ: What autographed Funko Pop do you want to add to your collection next?

FA: I'm currently chasing down a very rare Iron Man Funko Pop autographed by Robert Downey Jr himself.

I would also love to have a Harley Quinn Funko Pop autographed by Margot Robbie and a Joker Funko Pop autographed by Jared Leto, who are the actors who played the movie characters.

ILQ: Are there any gaming-related events you would like to see in Qatar?

FA: I would love to see Qatar have its first Comic Con event!
