Sideshow Featured Collector: David Brumby

Collector: David Brumby

Location: Sydney, Australia

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting Star Wars items the day after I first saw the film in 1977 and I have been at it ever since. Probably first started with Sideshow statues around a decade ago.

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

I collect entirely Star Wars items as you can probably tell.

What makes your collection unique?

Maybe the size of it. I have some 3,000 plus figures all MOC. Just about every 3.75/6 inch figure from Day one. I have some 12,000 collector cards (every set released) and a lot of other random items. Unfortunately, it makes it difficult to actually display everything as I’d like to.

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

Of course I love the original figures but I would probably say the Sideshow Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and the Darth Vader bust are the best to display. I love the Kotobukiya figures as well.

What items are on your wish-list?

Without question I would love to get the Life-Size Darth Vader and Boba Fett (they are out of my budget range) but I am hoping to get the legendary C-3PO and R2 next.
