How and when did you start collecting?
I’ve been collecting since I was eight years old. My love for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Young Justice, Justice League Unlimited, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Spectacular Spider-Man were the main reasons why I started buying figures.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
As a kid I started out mostly collecting Marvel Legends, DC collectibles, and figures and vehicles from the 2008-2013 Clone Wars collection. Since then I’ve collected many more prop replicas, Hot Toys, Sideshow sixth scale figures, statues, pins, posters and celebrity autographs, all related to either Marvel, DC, Star Wars or Disney.
What makes your collection unique?
I like to think that mine is unique because it includes pieces from a few different areas of pop culture rather than it being dedicated to one movie or one franchise. But with all of the other great collections out there it’s really hard to say how mine is different.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My favorite pieces would be my Ultron on Throne statue and my General Grievous mask.
What items are on your wish-list?
The Hot Toys Darth Maul from Solo: A Star Wars Story is a must have. I’m also really looking forward to a line of Rise of Skywalker sixth scale figures.
