How and when did you start collecting?
As a little kid I was fond of horror and action figures from when I was approximately seven years old and later on in life I was diagnosed with cancer and I decided I wanted to start collecting again little by little & this is what I have.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars collectibles, Batman, etc.?
What makes your collection unique?
Some of the pieces that I have are well over 10 years old and I try to look them up you can’t even find them anymore and at the same time what makes it unique is that it’s from a very unique person you have to know me to know my personality how I could give with so many different things.
I think one of my favorites it’s actually I’m still paying it off it’s the Hulk versus Wolverine cost me $649 and the minute I seen it I want back-and-forth to the site I don’t know how many times and I just had to do it, I love it.
What items are on your wish-list?
I really would like to build up my Marvel collection. There’s so many that I need I don’t know where to start. I have the Hulk and the Hulkbuster that is it. I mean I have juggernaut but I don’t count him with the Marvel guys and I have a small Captain America.
