How and when did you start collecting?

I saw a statue of He-Man and I just had to have it so that was my beginning now I collect different items from Cartoons that I grew up watching so I really look for original looking items.

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

Nothing specific, its a mix of X-men and other superhero’s down to powered toast man from Ren & Stimpy. When I do buy an item I do look for their partners such as Hema and the Sorceress, Sabretooth and Wolverine (which you are building for me). I have a collection of Supernatural Knives and am going to make a selection of cars from various movies.

What makes your collection unique?

well maybe its not unique but it is unique to my childhood memories so having a range of many different themes is what makes it unique

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

Well my first piece was He-Man, he is my favorite but when my Wolverine that you are building arrives it will be a fight for my affection lol.

What items are on your wish-list?

I have seen some items that you have that I want so bad: Superman, an original Wonder Woman, Optimus Prime, Skeletor, Magneto, Professor X, Yoda, oh and a life size R2D2 just to name a few
