How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting when I was 4, when the original Star Wars movie came out in 1977. I still have my Star Wars, Lone Ranger, Six Million Dollar Man, GI Joe, Transformers, and Mego toys.

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

My collection is diverse, as I collect a little bit of everything. Star Wars probably accounts for 50%, but I have lots of Marvel, DC, McFarlane, and Sideshow.

What makes your collection unique?

The range. I have a significant amount of vintage figures, going back to the seventies with Star Wars and Mego, all the way up to my most recent addition, the Sideshow 1/6 scale Suicide Squad Joker imposter Batman. I currently have 45 Sideshow 1/6 scale figures, and I’m waiting for another 9 to ship.

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

Really hard to pin one down, but most of my vintage Star Wars toys are my sentimental favorites. Maybe the early release original 12 figure set, or my Death Star playset. The Sideshow 1/4 scale Boba Fett is definitely in the discussion.

What items are on your wish-list?

I’d love to get my hands on a 1979 Alien movie figure, as well as the Sideshow 1/6 scale 1989 Michael Keaton Batman.
