Sideshow Featured Collector: Wesley Radcliff

How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting at a very young age, probably around 5 or 6 when I received my first Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle figure. That of course exploded in TNMT EVERYTHING and then came THE X-MEN. Watch out!

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

So when I access my collection from a theme point of view you could really dress it as several. Overall, I would say my collection theme is 80’s & 90’s or Superhero theme.

I collect: anything and everything  X-Men, Masters Of The Universe, She-Ra, Thundercats, Tank Girl, SAGA, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, and Movie & Music Memorabilia.

Statues & Comics are my main collectable of choice, but I also have collections in trading cards, original movie posters, animated series boxsets, collector tickets, and more.

What makes your collection unique?

I think what makes my collection unique is how I place and display them. Honestly. My collections are very colorful characters, way over the top designs, and I think I’ve found a way to mesh them in well with each other without there having to be an exact X-Men spot, and an exact He-Man spot, and so on.

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

So for me personally, my most valued fanboy favorites (not so much as in worth, but more of personal value) would be my:
