How and when did you start collecting?

To be honest, I probably started collecting when I was still a child in the 80s. I had an uncanny sense for taking care of my toys and keeping them in the best condition as possible. In hindsight I was probably a little OCD but for some reason I always knew that those toys, be at Humana or transformers what one day get me everything that I wanted.

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

Currently I am focused more on Hot Toys and premium format statues however I collect everything from Star Trek to Star Wars, Disney to Marvel, DC to Neca and Mezco. I have a large assortment of Marvel legend action figures, tons of superman figures and a very large collection of 1:1 scale prop replicas including the entire collection of Green Lantern power batteries.

What makes your collection unique?

What makes my collection so unique is how flawlessly it integrates into my home. Instead of buying collectibles and trying to figure out how to display them in My Home, I have designed my home around my collection by building display walls to really capture exactly what it is I’m trying to show off. More or less every window is a tribute to its own  Genre or specific hero.

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

My favorite part of my collection would have to be my 1:1 scale prop replica Green  lanterns, Captain America shield, Iron Man  gauntlets and any other movie scale quality prop replica in my collection. Owning a prop replica to scale truly connect me as a fan to a specific movie or character.

What items are on your wish-list?

Most of what’s on my wish list I have pre-ordered already, that being the new avengers infinity war hot toys! However, my collection would not be complete one day if I did not have a working scale replica of an Iron Man suit.
