This week’s Collector Spotlight is our first Spotlight of the year!
Collector Name: Dave House
How Long Have You Been A Collector?
I’ve always loved toys and cult cinema but I’ve only become a serious collector over the last couple of years
Why Did You Start Collecting?
I’m a cinephile and have a real love for cult cinema. Neca’s figures aren’t just toys they’re works of art that give us a tangible connection to some things we really love. I just realized I really love these things and I’m with a partner who’s a collector too so together we’re making our own cinema museum in our home.
What Was Your First Item?
I’d always been collecting since I was a kid but had stopped when I grew up. But then I saw Neca’s Terminator from the police station scene and I had to have him. That was the one that really started me collecting Neca.
Share Any Unique Details About Your Collection
I’ve collected from all over. There’s figures from comic cons, toy fairs and collectors’ places in the US, UK, China and Japan. When my girlfriend and I travel we always love to check out the collector scene. Alongside my collector shelf is my partner’s, Tilda. Her stuff is mostly pop and Lego but she too has a few select Necas.
What Is Your Favorite Item?
The SDCC movie Turtles. I’m lucky to have them
Which NECA Toys Are You Most Anxious For?
I’m really excited for Ace Ventura. I would LOVE it if Neca could make a Ryan Gosling Drive figure! that would be a dream. Also a clothed Eastwood from The Good the Bad and the Ugly
