Sideshow Featured Collector: Wilson Romero
Location: Secaucus, New Jersey U.S.
How and when did you start collecting?
Had an ex girlfriend that bought me my first Statue thirty years ago. It was Ripclaw from CS Moore and it was downhill from there. Started buying everything comic related statues from all companies. Until I saw a Predator statue from Sideshow and went crazy.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars collectibles, Batman, etc.?
Would love to collect everything but my passion is sci-fi and horror. I blame my mom for introducing me to horror films in my young childhood.
What makes your collection unique?
Every time somebody sees my collection and sees pieces from movies they love or hate there reaction good or bad it’s priceless. Most of my statues is a part of my childhood movies I’ve grown to love.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
My lord of darkness life-size bust from Sideshow and my ECC predator maquette. I stare at this grail everyday.
What items are on your wish-list?
One day I would love to find a Sideshow life-size alien warrior bust. Wink wink
