How and when did you start collecting?

I’ve been collecting sense about 2008. Mostly movie probs at first then after I got married i started collecting Hot Toys figures, and some premium format figures.

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

No theme to the collection. I collect things from figures of all sizes, movie probs. Some life size figures as well. If it is from something I love I will add it to the collection.

What makes your collection unique?

Most of my collection is housed in my basement which I personally finished and build for the sole purpose of displaying my collection. Though i don’t know if that qualifies. But to me that makes it unique.

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

Right now I own a Hot Toys T-1000 and I absolutely love it. I had it on a wish list for 4 years but never pulled the trigger because of the price. But this past Christmas my wife surprised me with it. But it will be replaced by the life size T-800 replica we just ordered.

What items are on your wishlist?

Well I just ordered a life-size T-800 so if I had to put something on a wish list it would be a life-size Iron Man replica.
