Sideshow Featured Collector: Chris Palma

Collector: Chris Palma

Location: Las Vegas, NV

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting as a kid. I was always fascinated with pop culture. I was lucky enough to have a father that enjoyed it as well, so since a young age it was always my dad and I on the hunt. Now of course with SS producing incredible pieces it’s taken it to another level.

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

Clearly comics, but love the Sci Fi and horror. I was very fortunate to have SS post my Predator collection.

What makes your collection unique?

I am not sure that my collection is unique but it does show my passion. I love to look at the SS blog and see the incredible collections that fellow collectors have put together. I have always admired the dedication that others have shown while being apart of the hobby. Not only to see the collections but to read the great stories on how and why they collect.

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

As of now I have to say Thanos. I have been a fan since I was a kid. I don’t want to date myself but I was a fan WAY before the MCU hit the big screen.

What items are on your wish-list?

Not sure as of now. I always await SS next creation.
