Welcome to Round5Figures.com!
I have been a collector of things for as far back as I can remember…I have my dad to thank for that. Ever since he took me to see Star Wars at the drive in when it first launched & bought me the first issue of Marvel’s Star Wars comics I’ve been hooked. Combine that with my obsessive, compulsive need to organize, categorize & track everything in my life & this site was born.
I have been following the UFC pretty much since The Ultimate Fighting Championship number 1 appeared on Pay-Per-View on November 12th, 1993. Although I took a break from watching them from about UFC number 5 to UFC number 45, I have been pretty much die hard ever since & can count on 1 hand the number of events I have missed…I even tried to convince my wife (who is also a pretty die hard UFC fan in her own right) to let me play UFC 73: Stacked at the reception hall on the night of our wedding on July 7th, 2007 (7/7/7, Vegas baby!). That didn’t go over too well so we ended up DVRing it & having a fight party the next day.
All that said, I actually started collecting the Round 5 Collectibles UFC figures pretty late in the game. I was at the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas in 2012, standing in line (for what ended up being over 4 hours) to get Jon Jones’s signature, talking to this guy in front of me, Matt. During the conversation he mentioned that Round 5 (who up to this point I had never heard of) was releasing some Fan Expo Exclusive figures & he asked that I hold his place in line so he could go grab a set, which of course I obliged. When he came back & I saw them I was almost immediately hooked…I had my wife run over there to pick up the Dana, the Cowboy (UFC Edition) & the Jon Jones (Ultimate Collector Series 8 – UFC 129 Championship Edition), which I had Jones sign that day.
After that Fan Expo, I sat down to start trying to figure out what figures were out there & was AMAZED to find out that there was absolutely NO good source to get that info…none of the collecting sites I followed had much (if any) info, there were no “Apps for That”…nothing. I found the odd reference here & there & of course Round 5 had their series release posters but no one had a definitive list of what was released, when it was released, where it was released, etc. It is that gap that I am hoping to fill…I hope you all enjoy your stay here!
Each figure posted is categorized in 2 different ways, by the fighters name (organized by first name first) & by the series in which he / she was released. There are “By Fighter” & “By Series” tabs at the top of every page:
- The “By Fighter” tab will take you to a page that lists all the fighters that have had figures created by Round 5 Collectibles. Clicking any of the fighters names will take you to a page that lists each & every figure released for that fighter broken down by what Round 5 series he / she was released in.
- The “By Series” tab will take you to a page that lists all the series of figures that were release by Round 5 Collectibles. Clicking on a particular Round 5 series would then bring up a page that lists all the figures that were released for that series.
Additionally, each Round 5 Series & fighter that has had a figure released by Round 5 Collectibles is listed in the right navigational bar. Clicking any of those links will take you directly to that Round 5 series (where all the fighters released for that series would be listed) or to a page that would list every figure that Round 5 Collectibles released for that particular fighter.

- If it isn’t too costly I would love to create / have created an app to track people’s collections…perhaps one that would even allow fellow collectors to share what they have & what they are looking for.
I am always open to suggestions for features that other collectors would like to see…feel free to contact me & let me know. Also, since there is no existing definitive source for information regarding collecting Round 5 figures, I am sure I have probably missed a couple figures that are out there. If you come across errors or omissions I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know.
There are a number of figures that I could not find decent hi-rez pics of in their packaging…if anyone out there has one, can take one or knows where I can find one, please let me know.
