I started collecting at the age of 17, when I bought my first Star Wars 3 3/4″ figure from the local super market. That was it…one thing led to the other, and now I just can’t get enough!

These past 15-20 years I have moved from the small Hasbro figures to bigger (and more expensive) ones, then on to busts and statues, until finally I settled down and focused exclusively on sixth scale stuff.

In the past, I used to have many different collectible formats displayed all together, and it just didn’t look right. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been proud of my collection, but now with an exclusive focus on sixth scale I believe it’s on a whole other level 🙂

I absolutely love my Sideshow Star Wars Troopers! They are the crown jewels of my collection, right up there with my Hot Toys ‘Iron Men’ (I have them all, from Mark I up to Mark VII, plus a couple of exclusives!)

I’ve pre-ordered the new Sideshow Darth Vader Deluxe figure, which I think will be plain awesome! Can’t wait to get him in my hands!
