How and when did you start collecting?

I started seriously collecting about five years ago when I first saw a 1:4 scale piece and just how much presences these pieces of art hold. I developed a serious passion for the art. Love at first sight I guess.

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

I collect Batman and DC related pieces. I stick to mostly 1:4 and 1:3 scale these days. I also love first appearance CGC graded comics.

What makes your collection unique?

I believe the mixture of the graded comics and statues themselves creates a unique experience once you enter the room. You can look at a statue then quickly turn around and see the first appearance of the character and learn more about their history in the medium.

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

Some of my favorite pieces are the ones that stick out the most to me. The Prime 1 Studios 1:3 scale Deathstroke and the Sideshow 1:4 scale Red Son Batman to me just have such a unique feel to them, they instantly grab your attention.

What items are on your wish-list?

I’d love to own a 1:4 scale Damian Robin piece one day if it’s made. He has to be my favorite Robin. Also, a 1:4 scale Red Rain Batman or Gotham by Gaslight Batman would be killer as well.
