How and when did you start collecting?

I started my collecting when I was a small boy. Seeing Star Wars™ for the first time I fell in love and have been collecting ever since. Starting with small figures and collecting every aspect of the Star Wars Universe.

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

I collect everything mostly Star Wars, but also Marvel from Wolverine, Spiderman, and the Avengers.

What makes your collection unique?

Some of the pieces are unique from Master Replicas to fan made. Some pieces are completely unique and cannot be found anywhere. I have a Darth Vader helmet fan made which shows every working component of the inside complexity of Darth Vader’s Helmet from Revenge of the Sith.

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

My favorite pieces are the Sideshow Premium Format Figures. They are so detailed and complex. My favorite is the Mythos Collection of Star Wars statues, from Obi Wan to Boba Fett.

What items are on your wish-list?

Mostly the life-size Sideshow pieces such as Darth Vader, R2-D2, and Boba Fett.
