Sideshow Featured Collector: Ramon Madera

Collector: Ramon Madera

Location: Whitestone, New York

How and when did you start collecting?

My wife bought me a Batman & Joker black and white small statues 3 years ago. I was amazed by the size, detail and beauty of the Sideshow statues, but at the time I saw them so big and expensive, of course I wasn’t educated about them until my new friends @ ROYAL COLLECTIBLES & MO at the time enlightened me about the art of collecting and I’m forever grateful for it.

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

I’m a Batman guy, but I try to stick with DC & Marvel characters.

What makes your collection unique?

Every collection is unique, there’s no two alike. Mine? I got a small Batman statue painted by my 8 year old son that I value as my Dr. Doom on throne statue.

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

Dr. Doom on throne, Man-Thing, Lobo & Dawg.

What items are on your wish-list?

Bane, Venom, Carnage, Huntress, Cheetah, and Green Lantern.
