Featured Collector: Anthony Pierno Jr.Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Anthony Pierno Jr.
Location: Providence, RI
I would like to submit for your consideration my boyfriend’s ‘Fortress of Solitude.’ I believe he has one of the greatest collections I have ever seen!
Anthony has been collecting for over 20 years and still has most of his toys from his childhood from the 80′s and 90′s. He keeps his 10,000+ comics and 2,000+ movies recorded in a database.
His Favorite Collectibles
My favorite items in his collection are his movie props; he has a working Star Trek First Contact Mark IX Science tricorder and phaser, Captain America’s shield, Wonder Woman’s lasso, tiara, and bracelets, and a one-of-a-kind light-up Kryptonian crystal display. He also just loves to show off Green Lantern’s power battery and ring!
His computer area is like an arsenal of movie weapons. He has swords from HE-Man, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tron, Stargate, Atlantis and Firefly. Not to mention his Sword of Omens!
Anthony really takes his collecting seriously. He’s a regular at the Wizard World comic book conventions and has managed to collect an amazing assortment of celebrity photos and autographs from Chris Hemsworth, Dean Cain, Margo Kidder, Adam Baldwin, Julie Benz, all five Star Trek captains, Stan Lee and lots more!
His Grail Collectibles
As for his holy grail item, that would have to be a Life-Size Iron Man suit and Hall of Heroes display. He is currently working on obtaining replicas of Superman and Batman’s costumes and a few others to display.
I know Anthony will be very excited to see his collection featured on your site! Thanks Sideshow!
