How and when did you start collecting?

It has all started 10 years ago when I was looking my favorite heroes figures. My first figure was Kratos from God of war, then the super Japanese robots mainly Grendizer. Hot Toys is now my only figures to collect and that was when I received my first piece from my wife as a birthday gift and it was the spark. First Hot toys figure was The Wolverine and last one ordered was the craziest DC lady Harley Quinn.

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

My main theme is Marvel specifically the Avengers line. I have select figures i.e. Star Wars, G. I. Joe, Street fighter and TMNT.

What makes your collection unique?

Every piece has its place is my heart, I grew watching these characters until now I have physically have them displayed on my shelves.

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

All of them are special, but ideally and usually the newest received figure becomes the most favorite until that feeling is normalized.
