How and when did you start collecting?
I started collecting action figures, (DC, MARVEL, STAR WARS, and WWF/WWE FIGURES in 1986) However, I started HOT TOYS/SIDESHOW in 2010! Have not stopped, and my addiction grows with every passing day.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
I have a collection of roughly, 85-100 sixth scale Hot Toys, I am branching into 1/4 and Premium Format figures a little now, but I still have many sixth scale to get, I am a huge Superman, Batman, DC Comics and Marvel (Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America collector) I also am a huge Star Wars collector, love the Empire & Sith… even though I have some love for Luke and Han Solo…
What makes your collection unique?
The crossover of Star Wars, mashed with Batman and D.C. Mixed with Marvel. I have been trying to get my hands on every Joker, as he is by far my favorite villain. I am hunting for a DX01/DX11 those are the two I need to complete my Joker stash…. just picked up my Suicide Squad figures and I have my JOKER 1/4 Ledger in order, I cannot wait!!!!
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
Definitely my Dark Knight bank robber Joker or Dx09 Nicholson Joker love those two, just picked up my Suicide Squad Deadshot. I also am partial to my Darth Vader Star Wars exclusive sixth scale from A New Hope!! I also have a Grand Moff Tarkin on pre-order, it keeps getting better and better!
What items are on your wish-list?
Joker DX01, Joker Dx11, Batman, Dark Knight Rises Bane, and the original black tumbler I have the camo one…
