Sideshow Featured Collector: Matt Stuver

Collector: Matt Stuver

Location: Thomson, Illinois

How and when did you start collecting?

About ten years ago I was searching for a gift to get a friend of mine for his wedding and came across Sideshow, and have been hooked ever since.

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

Predominately collect Star Wars and Batman. I currently have five Star Wars Premium Format Figures on order and cannot wait to add them to my collection.

What makes your collection unique?

I don’t know if my display is unique, I have seen some pretty amazing collections on here. I just try to make it my own.

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

My Darth Vader Premium Format Figure is pretty close to tops on my list, but hands down my Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark PF is the best. It’s the first statue I ever got and is still my favorite.

What items are on your wish-list?

Still holding on to the dream of Sideshow eventually getting around to Mad Max in a quarter scale. You guys could do some amazing stuff with some of the characters from the Road Warrior and Fury Road. Fingers crossed for a Bane TDKR and Jack Nicholson Joker PF to finish my collection as well. The Leatherface PF would go great with my Jason and Pinhead, still trying to sneak that one by the wife.
