How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting when I was a kid after Star Wars came out in 1977. After that I was hooked. I stopped collecting for several years and got back into it after the new Star Wars prequel movies came out. But I’ve always collected superhero comics.

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

I collect Star Wars, Marvel, and DC. My main superhero characters are Batman, Black Panther, Superman, Iron-man, and the X-Men.

What makes your collection unique?

I have a variety of things that stand out. Before I collected the same things. Now I collect whatever I think looks cool.

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

Probably my Star Wars prop replicas and Hulkbuster.

What items are on your wish-list?

The new Hulkbuster and Bane statue that I have on order and should be shipping shortly.
