Collector: Tammy Megow-Jones
Location: Beaufort, SC
How and when did you start collecting?
It really started when I was a teenager with Star Trek collectible pins and Buffy and X-Files stuff. And my Ralph McQuarrie posters….Once I was “grown up” and had a real job I started collecting Kotobukiya Star Wars figures. Then, about seven years ago, I discovered Sideshow and my collection exploded from there!
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
A little bit of everything but I’ve been collecting Star Wars stuff the longest. Since I can’t afford every single awesome thing you release I’ve had to start limiting my subject matter. So now I’m mainly focused on Captain America. I am absolutely in love with the MCU and Chris Evans’ portrayal of the iconic character.
What makes your collection unique?
Probably nothing really, lol. Except maybe for my Ralph McQuarrie posters that make great companions to your concept art statutes.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My lightsabers, Life size Yoda for sure and my Captain America shield. I also just love the comic -based Captain America premium format statue.
What items are on your wishlist?
The K2-SO premium format figure is awesome and there are the Wonder Woman movie statues from Prime 1 Studios – gorgeous! Especially the one on horseback. And of course I’m standing by for any future MCU-based Cap statues….
