How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting about 15 years ago. I saw a superman snow globe released by DC DIRECT and had to get it. It looked so amazing seeing superman in his fortress of solitude. I was a huge fan of Smallville so it was a must have. Since then I came to find out about sideshow collectibles. I actually purchased Doom on Throne which was one of my favorite statues of all time and I branched off into Street Fighter statues which were also sold through sideshow at the time.

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

I collect Masters of the Universe figures/statues. I collect Street fighter statues, Marvel statues and DC statues.

What makes your collection unique?

I have a variety of different things I am into which allows people to see different things instead of one theme. People that see my collection can relate to one thing no matter what it is. I even have some anime figures/statues so many people love anime. I try to categorize my collection by theme. I have a lot of the rare statues as well as the new stuff so I would say that’s pretty unique!

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

I would have to say Doom on throne, Magneto on throne, He-man, Gambit Premium Format™ Figure they are my favorites!

What items are on your wishlist?

I have a massive wish list but they are all on preorder with sideshow so just waiting for my wishes to come in stock….so my wishes can come true 🙂
