Sideshow Featured Collector: Bruce Canto

Collector: Bruce Canto

Location: Makati City, Philippines

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting about 7 years ago. I started with 1/6 figures, and then also collecting some select premium formats that were my favorite
comic book characters of mine later on.

What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?

My collection is actually based on my favorite heroes and movie characters growing up. I have a Star Wars section, and Marvel and a DC section. I have a section for characters from different sci-fi and adventure movies that have become my favorite films over the years.

What makes your collection unique?

I like to display my figures as though it was a scene from a movie. I try not to pose the figures too much, I try to keep them in the museum pose as much as possible. I just group figures together according to how they came out in a scene, or how I remember them when I first saw them.

What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?

I have the Bruno Kirby OG Hulk Premium Format, as well as the Sideshow Voltron Maquette and the PCS He-Man and Battlecat Statues set.

What items are on your wish-list?

I’m still hoping to find a Sideshow or Prime 1 Studio Doomsday!
