How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting comics first over 20 years ago, then action figures but statues only about 5 years ago…

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

I collect Marvel and DC – but I have quite a large Sideshow vs statue collection.

What makes your collection unique?

What definitely makes my collection unique is that I am currently going for the worlds largest Deadpool collection to be logged with the Guinness Book of World Records. Over 2500 unique licensed Marvel Deadpool items.

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

My Sideshow PF exclusive Deadpool with the rubber chicken because I asked my Aunt to bring it with her on a plane from the States.

What items are on your wish-list?

The Sideshow Deadpool bust, new Deadpool PF with selfie stick and 1:6 scale Lobo figure, when I can afford it – the Hulk vs Wolverine statue!
