How and when did you start collecting?
I started collecting five years ago, since then, I liked to watch He-Man, Thundercats, Mazinger Z, and Saint Seiya. I could never buy an original figure from my favorite series due to the fact I was living in a small town very far from the nearest city of Guadalajara. Now five years later it was when I started to buy original die cast figures from Saint Seiya and Mazinger Z, I also bought my first two statues of He-Man and Skeletor from Sideshow.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars Collectibles, Batman, etc.?
I concentrate most of my collection in Saint Seiya die cast action figures and Mattel He-Man action figures, I do also have Thundercats figures that I don’t have in display yet. But it would be great if Sideshow could take over the Thundercats franchise. I don’t have Batman in my collection, but I’m planning to buy one from Sideshow or any other DC statues.
What makes your collection unique?
I’m not said my collection is unique, it just take a very special place on my mind and makes me remember a lot of good moments with my best friends.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
All are my favorites, however my most expensive piece is Bandai Mazinger Z 40th anniversary. Sideshow Skeletor and He-Man are priceless 👍 Thank you Sideshow for the amazing detail on those two pieces.
What items are on your wish-list?
Batman, Deathstroke, Green Arrow, Gladiator Hulk, Wolverine, G.I. Joe Cobra Ninjas, Ghost Rider, and Punisher.
