How Long Have You Been A Collector?
Why Did You Start Collecting?
It took my love and obsession for movies and turned them into tangible things that I could always be surrounded by. I didn’t think it would necessarily grow into this but I’m glad at any moment I can look around and see either Kaiju, The Devil’s Rejects, or The Hateful Eight.
What Was Your First Item?
A trip to the local mall’s “Spencer’s Gifts” and I picked up Cult Classics Freddy from New Nightmare and Cult Classics Leatherface
Share Any Unique Details About Your Collection
I love going to various conventions around the world and tracking down actors to sign the figures of their characters. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had Bruce Campbell, Lance Henriksen, Linda Blair and many more sign their NECA figures. The centerpiece of my collection is my shrine to Tarantino. He is my biggest influence creatively and the first director to really make a mark on me and spark the fire for my love of movies.
What Is Your Favorite Item?
The possessed Regan from Exorcist
Which NECA Toys Are You Most Anxious For?
The Guillermo del Toro Collection!!!
