Sideshow Featured Collector: Carlos González
Location: Monterrey, Nuevo León, México
How and when did you start collecting?
I started collecting Spider-Man comics first, and about 2010 I bought my first collectible figure, the Amazing Spider-Man 1/6 from Medicom. Several years after that I discovered Bowen’s figures, and there I began to seriously collect statues; I started to research more about the hobby and then I discover Sideshow (my first Sideshow was Spider-Man Campbell Comiquette), and the rest, as people say, is history!
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars collectibles, Batman, etc.?
My collection is mainly from Amazing Spider-Man (comic universe), his foes and friends.
What makes your collection unique?
I do not think it is “unique” as it is. What does have my collection is that I have figures of different scales, and different companies (Sideshow, Bowen, Iron Studios, XM, diamond select, Kotobukiya, Attakus, etc) If I like it and I can afford it, then I make it part of my home!
I really like each and every one of my figures, but my favorites are, in no particular order, Back in Black Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man Premium Format Figure, Spider-Man bronze cast, Sosa Spidey from Kotobukiya, Spider-Man from Master Replicas and Lizard from XM!
What items are on your wish-list?
Please make a Doc Ock and Mysterio Premium Format Figures!
