Sideshow Featured Collector: Jeff Modrak
Collector: Jeff Modrak
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
How and when did you start collecting?
I started collecting Star Wars toys when I was 4 years old in 1977. I was literally born at the exact right time to become a lifelong fan! Over the years, I started to discover the other amazing collectibles like Sideshow and when my wife and I bought my current house she was gracious enough to give me my own room to display my collection.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
My main focus is Star Wars. I particularly like the Life Size busts and Premium Format Figures. I used to have Lord of the Rings and Marvel pieces but it occurred to me that I don’t have enough room to display all the Star Wars stuff I have so, I moved that other stuff out. (Except for the awesome KISS Premium format set!)
What makes your collection unique?
I like the way my collection is displayed. I am constantly updating with new products and moving out old stuff.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
I enjoy the Life Size Sideshow busts. I think they make a big impression when someone walks in the room.
What items are on your wish-list?
I would love to add a life size Sideshow Darth Vader, but I have not quite figured where I could possibly put him.
