Sideshow Featured Collector: Joel David

Collector: Joel David

Location: Hazel Park, MI, USA

How and when did you start collecting?

I originally started with just a few pieces here and there. Some odds and ends. Mostly figures. Once 2020 hit and shook up everything I dove head first back into my love of Star Wars. That lead me down the rabbit hole of finding Sideshow 1/6th scale figures. I started by telling my wife I was just going to get two figures. That quickly became 2 shelves full of Star Wars.

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

I collect Star Wars, Horror, and really whatever catches my eye!

What makes your collection unique?

My collection is a curious one. I have everything in it from Darth Vader to Alice Cooper, Young Frankenstein to Aayla Secura, and Kenobi to Monty Python.

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

My top pieces are easily my Young Frankenstein set of Dr. Frankenstein, Igor, and the Monster, and my ROTS Obi and Ani. My two favorite moments, and the figures always put a smile on my face.

What items are on your wishlist?

Currently I am hoping to get the 1/6 Creature from the Black Lagoon figure as well as the Hot Toys Commander Cody and Captain Rex.
