Started Collecting: I have been a comic book collector as a kid. About 10 years ago, I started with DC Direct figures hoping to complete a JLA set with my son. But that was just the beginning of what became a crazy passion, an obsession. I started to buy 1:6 figures, mostly of Superman and Iron Man. When I purchased my very first 1:4 statue from Sideshow, an Iron Man comiquette, it opened my eyes to a whole new my world of statue collecting.

I take pride in investing the time and effort displaying each and every piece I buy. I feel that these pieces are works of art to be displayed and appreciated, not simply stored in boxes. I carefully ensure that shelving and lighting are strategically placed to be admired. It is a challenge considering space limitations, but once I find the right position for each piece it becomes overwhelmingly satisfying. At least until I get a new piece, and start re-organizing once again. It is part of the thrill and fun of collecting I guess.
