How and when did you start collecting?

I started collecting around 2012, When I first saw Sylvester Stallone figure from The Expendables, I felt in love with it straight away as I was grown up watching rocky movies and Stallone was my dream hero and motivation in my life so owning his figure was dream come true, and the rest is history.

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

I collect everything from Star Wars, Batman and Superheroes but the only pieces which have some kind of attachment to me throughout my life.

What makes your collection unique?

I think my collection is unique because of my love for it and amount of time given every week to look after them, sorting, cleaning, It’s part of my family.

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

It’s hard to say because I have only bought the pieces which are my favorite.

What items are on your wish-list?

Any piece which will bring any part of my childhood memories back, I would love to say the whole Rocky Balboa series which I believe was done before but I never new about them at that time.
