Sideshow Featured Collector: Trevor Paulo
How and when did you start collecting?
Hey Sideshow it’s been almost 2 years since I was featured and my collection has evolved and grown since then. I started collecting in Dec 2009, my first purchase being the Hot Toys ‘Lost Predator’. I’ve since moved on to collecting all Hot Toys Marvel & Star Wars, Pop Funky & Mighty Jaxx Figures.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars collectibles, Batman, etc.?
Right now I’m very focused on completing the hall of armor – house party protocol, I’m missing about 3 figures ‘ shades, bones retro & python’. But I’m also balancing that with collecting as many exclusive Pop Funko Star Wars as possible.
What makes your collection unique?
I guess it would be the sheer amount I’ve invested since 2009, a cool $54,000 SGD, I love making sure my collections are complete, e.g. I wouldn’t just buy a Darth Vader from rogue one and skip the rest. When I embark on a collection, I always finish it.
What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?
Right now I would say the 3 best figures I have are: mark 7 stealth (white version) mark 7 stealth (black version) and Midas.
What items are on your wish-list?
I hope to add the porcelain stormtrooper to my collection soon as well as the chrome stormtrooper to my exclusive list.
