I started collecting about five years ago, when I met my wonderful wife. I was in my hometown in Boston at a tailor, and he happened to have nicely lighted and mirrored curios full of various Sideshow and Bowen statues. My wife saw how I was drawn to them, so that year for my birthday she got me Sideshow’s Emma Frost and Mary Jane Exclusive Comiquettes. I discovered more about companies like Sideshow Collectibles and Pop Culture Shock Collectibles and Bowen Designs and the rest is statue addiction history!
I mainly collect Sideshow quarter scale and dioramas from Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and movie pieces. Another big statue passion of mine is my Pop Culture Shock Collectibles and SOTA Street Fighter statue and bust collection, to which I’ve dedicated a whole room in my house to.
His Favorite Collectible
I’d have to say to this day it’s still my Sideshow Collectibles Hulk vs. Spider-Man Diorama. They just don’t get more detailed and dynamic in pose than that piece- it’s so well done and designed down to every last detail!
My favorite quarter scale statue is the Sideshow Exclusive version of Shin Akuma Statue by Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. And the only Legendary Scale Figure I own, the Wolf Predator, has a special place in my heart.
His Grail Collectibles
I’m still on the hunt for the Sideshow Exclusive Doctor Doom Premium Format Figure and the Ryu Statue from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles!
