How and when did you start collecting?

Started collecting about 8 years ago. Really was just picking up pieces from my childhood. Toys I loved…Garbage Pail Kids cards lol ya know little pieces here and there. In my searches I found Sideshow. I was absolutely blown away. Took some time before I decided to really jump into collecting high end pieces but once I opened the door it was over. My collection has grown and evolved into something I never really dreamed it would. I am absolutely in love with the hobby.

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

Most of my collection is based on horror. I do however have mad love for my super heroes and villains. So because of that I dedicated one side of my collection to Spider-Man, Batman and their foes. Will be adding Superman in the not so distant future because I mean he’s superman…cant not have him lol

What makes your collection unique?

I feel that collecting horror pieces allows my collection stand out. There are not too many of us that dedicate their collections to horror verses the DC Marvel and Star Wars collectors.

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

Favorite piece hands down is my Sideshow Pumpkinhead Maquette. I never thought I would be able to find him. Since only 150 were ever made and was long sold out by the time I came around. With him I feel like I hit the jackpot. Besides him the Patient Zero bust and Premium Format. Those were another couple I had to take my time hunting down. I love each of the pieces I have but I do feel the most enjoyment in obtaining the pieces you had to search for and weren’t sure you would ever even find.

What items are on your wish-list?

This year was an amazing year to be a horror collector. Lots of great pieces coming out but if I were to have one wish it would be to see some attention and pieces be made of the less popular horror icons. Would love to give more of a range to my collection and there are just so many awesome charactors that havent been made yet. Fingers crossed.
