How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting back in 2011 as a sophomore in high school. My first figure was the Hot Toys Iron Man 2 War Machine. I’m an artist at heart, so finding figures of beloved characters crafted with such accuracy really drew my attention.

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

I dialed my collecting down to just Marvel for now, though Star Wars and Dragon Ball Z have been huge staples in the past as well.

What makes your collection unique?

I think my collection is unique in that I limit myself to only one version of every character, rather than having every iteration of Iron Man, Captain America, etc. I’ve also been told I have a knack for dynamic poses.

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

My most prized pieces are my Premium Format X-Force Deadpool and my 1/6 scale Hulkbuster.

What items are on your wishlist?

There’s quite a bit still but Ant Man and Wasp 1/6 scale are definitely next on the list.
