Stefaan Genetello


I’ve been collecting since 2009. I saw a statue at my fathers place that he had bought by chance from the brand Gentle Giant. I started searching the web and came out to the site of Sideshow, I saw pictures and I was instantly hooked and the first statue followed quickly.

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

I am a filmfreak therefore I have a wide range of statues, but I am a big fan of Star Wars and hope to expand this with Premium Format Figures from Star Wars by Sideshow.

What makes your collection unique?

I think I’ve created a nice setup of star wars, I like to work in pairs because it provides  a nice look, like Harry Potter and Voldemort – Spiderman and Gwen Stacy – Spike and Faith etc.

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

The James Bond Premium Format Figure is a great asset because with this statue I have involved my girlfriend in my hobby because she is a big James Bond fan. I am crazy about the Premium Format Terminator and Cobra Commader because of there high finish.

What items are on your wishlist?

Too many to mention, I like to find the Neytiri statue to place it next to Skully and find the Premium Format Baroness to place it next to the Cobra Commander. I also like to expand my Star Wars collection with the Premium Formats of Star Wars.
