Sideshow Featured Collector: Greg Anderson

Greg's Collection

Collector: Greg Anderson

Location: London, Ontario, Canada

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting about 4 years ago. My local comic shop has a great selection of sideshow and I was hooked from my first premium format.

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

Mainly collect DC and Marvel.  But really anything that I love or that I find a work of art is in my collection.

What makes your collection unique?

I have a lot of new statues but what makes mine unique is finding the older what I call “vintage” sideshow statues at different cons, online or comic shops.

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

My favorite pieces are the Michael Keaton Batman Premium Format Figure. Michael Keaton I think is one of the best Batman and highly underrated and I really hope Sideshow makes a Jack Nicholson Joker to accompany the Batman. My other favorite is my classic Superman premium format. A lot of Superman statues due not do superman justice, this is a rare one that captures the essence of Superman. Finally, the first Joker and Harley premium formats, they took me a while to track down and I love seeing them every day.

What items are on your wish-list?

I really hope to add more marvel premium formats like Green Goblin. As well, hunting down the original Jack Nicholson Joker Hot Toys is something I have been trying to do for awhile now. I love checking sideshow every week for what’s new and what to add to my collection.
