How and when did you start collecting?

I’ve collected Star Wars toys and memorabilia since probably the mid-80’s, and within the last few years focused my collection primarily on 1:6 and 1:4 scale items.

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

I collect anything and everything Star Wars.  I try to keep the larger collectibles confined to a few specific characters or themes, but have something collectible from across the entire Star Wars universe!

What makes your collection unique?

I think that every collector’s collection is unique, as everyone has a way to make their collection personal to them.  For me, I take pride in having a dedicated area to display my collection.  I enjoy working with my 1:6 scale collection to make the poses and scenes as life-like as possible.

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

Definitely my Premium Format Darth Vader.  Being my favorite character from the Star Wars universe, Vader was my first Premium Format purchase and, for me, is the center piece of my collection.

What items are on your wish-list?

I have several 1:6 scale items on pre-order, but there are some older Sideshow Star Wars 1:6 scale figures on my want list that I missed as my collection was built. I’m trying to complete my set of the Cantina Band figures currently.
