How and when did you start collecting?

As a little kid I was fond of horror and action figures from when I was approximately seven years old and later on in life I was diagnosed with cancer and I decided I wanted to start collecting again little by little & this is what I have.

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

I have an extreme mix going on from BioShock to Predator to Star Wars to Jason to Catwoman to Groot that’s where it jumps around.

What makes your collection unique?

Some of the pieces that I have are well over 10 years old and I try to look them up you can’t even find them anymore and at the same time what makes it unique is that it’s from a very unique person you have to know me to know my personality how I could give with so many different things.

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

I think one of my favorites it’s actually I’m still paying it off it’s the Hulk versus Wolverine cost me $649 and the minute I seen it I want back-and-forth to the site I don’t know how many times and I just had to do it, I love it.

What items are on your wish-list?

I really would like to build up my Marvel collection. There’s so many that I need I don’t know where to start. I have the Hulk and the Hulkbuster that is it. I mean I have juggernaut but I don’t count him with the Marvel guys and I have a small Captain America.
