Meet this week’s Featured Collector

Mark R.

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Started Collecting: As a writer and reviewer, I would get press samples of collectibles sent to me and other screeners I reviewed. After visiting the local comic shop and seeing Sideshow Collectibles’ statues and other products, I began to buy more and more, until it became a hobby and extension of my professional work.

In my collection I enjoy trying to get creative and mix and match unused switch out pieces to create compelling “What if” images. For example, I displayed the additional Star Wars Mythos Lomrokk portrait at Aurra Sing’s feet, as if it were her bounty. The Stormtrooper next to her could have her working with the Empire. She is an alien, so who knows how she ages and what her lifespan is?
