Collector: Marcus Palamara

Location: Temecula, CA

How and when did you start collecting?

I started to collect comics in 1998 at my local comic book store. It was mostly DC titles with some Marvel. Around 2000 I started to collect statues from Bowen and when I discovered Sideshow Collectibles, there was no other place for me to get my statues from.

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

I would have to say I’m between to themes. Most of my collect is Batman and the Hulk. Two get characters from DC and Marvel.

What makes your collection unique?

What makes my collection unique is that it’s mine and it took a long time to finally get it all in one place and I have a place to show it off.

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

My most prized pieces are from the Prime 1 collection. I just like the way the statues come at you. Second would have to be Sideshow’s Premium Formats.

What items are on your wish-list?

What I can’t wait for the Batman Who Laughs statue and Nightfall Batman from Prime 1. Plus, I have some Premium Format statues on order. What I would like to see is a Premium Format of the Flash. So, I can get the whole gang together.
