Sideshow Featured Collector: Becky McKeith
Collector: Becky McKeith
Location: Coleman, MI
How and when did you start collecting?
I guess I was a collector before I realized I was. My husband and I have collected album autographs and movie posters for years. My first True collection was the Lord of the Rings – and as there were so many characters to choose from, I zeroed in on all the figures with horses, as I raise and train miniature horses. I look at that display and am so glad I have what I do – they are amazing.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
I started with LOTR, then fell in love with Ironman, then Justice League, and I have collected their autographs to go along with their statues, which I love for display. I collect any Sideshow figure that calls to me, but my husband collected all of the figures (all sizes) for Star Trek, while I collected all of the ships, as we are both huge fans. The collection is diverse. I would have loved to share more photos of the collection display areas.
What makes your collection unique?
My collection is unique as I decorate my house with my collections. I want to enjoy them all the time. Some of the photos will be from my office area, some will be in our finished bar/basement area – and during the year I decorate the main eating area in the kitchen with new collections (Spiderman, Ironman, whatever is being delivered).
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
This is hard, as I love them ALL – that is why I own them. I think my most favorite is the Ironman Maquette that finally came this year – It is amazing (especially with the lights) I have probably 15 more statues that I am waiting on!! I would have loved to share the Spiderman collection area – Fun and Fabulous.
What items are on your wishlist?
I have had so much fun collecting for The Mandalorian, that most of the figures from that show are on my wishlist. I did miss a few Ironman statues, and they are on my wishlist (still hoping!)
