How and when did you start collecting?
I started out collecting back in the late 90’s with McFarlane figures, but I didn’t get into high end collectibles until a few years ago.
I try to focus my collection on horror related things, with a few monsters and villains thrown in. I don’t focus on a particular scale or type, that way if I like something that would be outside of what I collect, I can still get it. LOL I do make exceptions though for items that fall outside of my norm, like the Blitzway Ghostbusters 4 pack.
What makes your collection unique?
I don’t know if it’s really unique or not. But most don’t collect horror, and my collections ranges from $20 NECA figures to $3000 ECC statues. So I run the gamete.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
I love my Spider-head from The Thing by SOTA, that and my Underworld ECC statues.
What items are on your wish-list?
I am still patiently waiting for someone to make a Kane from Poltergeist II, statue or bust.
