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 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 😊
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.
