I started off by learning how to paint statues about 12 years ago. As the years went by with work and family commitments I naturally progressed into collecting them ready painted. I chanced upon Sideshow 4-5 years ago and was instantly fascinated by the beauty and details of the Premium Formats! Never looked back since. 🙂

My collection comprises mainly of Marvel and DC statues. The only exception are the Ninja Turtles, which brings back a lot of childhood memories! Have some Star Wars statues on order as well and really looking forward to the incoming Darth Vader Premium Format.

My current place is pretty small and I have spent a great deal of time with an interior designer to create display shelves that could maximise displaying my collection. I’m a firm believer of lighting as well in a display to showcase the collection, so a lot of time was also spent talking about different lighting options to bring the best out of every statue.

Planning the display layout was also challenging and yet fun to group the common characters together. I have dedicated a whole display shelf to display my favourite character Wolverine, and his arch nemesis Sabretooth.

His Favorites
Although most of my friends know my favourite character is Wolverine my favourite statue has to be the Original Hulk Premium Format. The musculature and face sculpt is just unbelievable! So dumb and yet so angry – ftting tribute to Kirbý’s artwork indeed.

His Wishlist
Will probably never be able to get my hands on one but I’m still hoping that someday I could get a chance to own the original Gray Hulk Premium Format which is a super rare piece nowadays.
