How and when did you start collecting?
My parents started me off in 1978 with my first Star Wars Figure Darth Vader and beyond Star Wars, my coloection germinated with Jumbo Machinders, He Man, Transformers, Voltron, Godzilla, Universal Monsters, Alien, Predator, And Batman etc etc.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
I collect mainly by Character, so Darth Vader is my main collection, but I also have a pretty healthy Batman, Godzilla, Giger style Alien, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and even Playmobil collection.
What makes your collection unique?
The character focus, because I love the subtleties between the variations of any one character. The one room in particular I am showcasing is the Darth Vader room, but half of my collection is still kept in boxes because I still don’t have enough room to display everything. Most of my Hot Toys figures are also still in boxes because I don’t have enough display space.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My most prized collectibles are my original Kenner Star Wars figures, EFX Ralph McQuarrie Vader Helmet, GMK Godzilla m1 subcollection, Art-FX+ 1979 Alien, Cinemaquette Vader, and Darth Vader Mythos by Sideshow.
What items are on your wishlist?
Darth Vader Rogue One Premium Format Figure, Cool Props Alien Giger Maquette, Darth Vader Legendary scale, and Darth Vader Life Size Sideshow.
