Sideshow Featured Collector: Frank Vasilakopoulos
Location: Sinton, TX
How and when did you start collecting?
It all started back in 2004 with the Jim Lee Superman Statue by DC Collectibles. It was at my local comic shop at the time. From there I slowly collected 1/6 scale pieces and then in summer of 2014 I heard about Sideshow and it was all downhill from there..lol.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme like Star Wars, Batman, etc.?
I collect a variety of pop culture pieces. Mostly DC and Marvel items with some Disney, Star Wars, Transformers, amongst others. My theme I’d say is trying to collect the Heroes with their most notorious villain.
What makes your collection unique?
