How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting back in April 2017. My obsession all started when I caught a glimpse of the Premium Format Superman… It was incredible. I’d never seen anything like it before and I was hooked. Such an amazing piece and to this day still one of  my all time favourites.

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

I’m all about DC and Marvel but to be honest I’m still new to collecting and I love everything lol

What makes your collection unique?

I tend to go for pieces with colour.  Pieces that complement each other. I like my mancave to pop. It has to inspire me and bring back my childhood Memories. My room certainly does that! It’s my own little slice of comic heaven 😊

Tony's CollectionWhat are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?

Definitely the Premium Format Superman. But I also love the premium format modern Batman, Prime 1 Deathstroke, Dark Knight, Noel. Its a very tricky question as my answer changes daily. Every time I go into the cave I fall in love with a new piece.

What items are on your wish-list?

Aquaman exclusive but he is on the way. I would really really love an insane Christopher Reeve Superman. I have the PF and it’s great but I’m still hoping that one day someone will release a definitive  1/4 scale reeve that does him the justice he deserves.
