How and when did you start collecting?

I’ve been collecting as long as I can remember starting way back with the 82 G.I. Joe line. I moved into 1/6 scale around 2010 after I visited Sideshows booth at SDCC and have been hooked ever since.

James's CollectionWhat do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars collectibles, Batman, etc.?

I collect whatever interests me at the time. My collection is mostly made up of Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and Star Trek collectibles.  If I had to pick a favorite character it would be Green Lantern.

What makes your collection unique?

Its just be if a mix of different comic and sci fi universes and I don’t always tend to go for the most popular or expensive version of a character either. If I like it And have the funds at the time,I buy it.

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

Three come to mind. First is my set of different colored D.C. Blackest night Green Lantern figures from SDCC. I managed to get them all, which a lot of people weren’t able to do. My SSC Boba Fett (he’s just an awesome figure) and my Hot Toys Knightmare Batman.

What items are on your wish-list?

What isn’t on my wishlist? Lol. I would say my top five are:

  • Hot Toys Doctor Strange
  • SSC Mythos Obi Wan
  • Hot Toys Hulkbuster
  • Hot Toys ROTJ Luke
  • Justice League Aquaman
