How and when did you start collecting?

I started almost 20 years ago with Hasbro 3.75″ figures and later with statues, busts and replicas. I started to collect with toys because I saw the special edition of the original trilogy in 1997.

I only collect Star Wars actually. I collect Hasbro 3.75″ figures, Sideshow Premium Format™ figures, Mythos fifth scale statues, 1:1 busts, Dioramas, Gentle Giant statues, Gentle Giant busts, Gentle Giant Animated Maquettes, Attakus fifth scale statues, and Master Replicas 1:1. 

What makes your collection unique?

The 5 Mythos statues, 19 Premium Format™ figures, 77 Gentle Giant Busts etc. 9 Original Master Replicas 1:1 very rare
