How and when did you start collecting?
I started collecting sideshow statues Jan of 2018. It was a new goal, new monthly hobby and something new to make my home studio more beautiful and art world. When I purchased my first Dr Doom Statue in Jan my gf was amazed that got something really unique/awesome for the house. More happy I didn’t purchase another gun for my collection. Lol. Now I’m on my search for 6th statue for the month of May. Last month I purchased 2 Statues celebration of 30 years of venom.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars Collectibles, Batman, etc.?
I collect 7″ figures like Marvel legends, DC Mattel, Neca and Star Wars Die Cast Figures to use em as reference in my art and commissions. I am an illustrater and tattoo artist. These figures are very Very helpful for my drawings. I don’t have a preference theme I love everything and drawing anything that relates to pop culture n comics books.
What makes your collection unique?
What makes my collection unique is that i love villains more that heroes. Every statue I own I can relate to these characters the way I am. 65% villain and 35% good in me. Haha.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My favorite in my collection I have are my sideshow statues. I am very thankful and grateful that I finally can own em. Dreams do come true.
What items are on your wish-list?
Tell you the truth I have no wish list. I know in time of working hard and saving our money, something will come along that you’ll like and get it.
