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.
