Location: Fresno, CA
How and when did you start collecting?
I have been collecting since I was a kid. I kept all my toys from when I was little like just He-Man’s, Ninja Turtles, and Some Star Wars. I really got into collecting Sideshows and Hot Toys in the last few years.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
I collect mostly Star Wars from Vintage to Modern. The original trilogy is more if what I collect and Boba Fett is by far my favorite character and what I love to collect the most. I have anything from action figures, statues, Sideshow, Hot Toys, Disney pins. I also have some Marvel, Disney, and other nostalgic items from my childhood.
What makes your collection unique?
My collection covers all of the various iterations of Fett. From the Holiday Special to Jango. I don’t just collect one specific “era” of him. I have a wide variety of figures and items that collections may not take time to notice. I don’t exclusively collect Sideshow either.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My most prize piece is my Donald Duck as Boba Fett Statue/Enamel Pin set but my favorite is my ROTJ Premium Format Figure from Sideshow.
What items are on your wishlist?
The Sideshow Boba Fett lifesize bust, Boba Fett Mythos Sixth Scale Figure, a Vintage MOC Boba Fett figure.
