How Long Have You Been A Collector?

Since 1994

Why Did You Start Collecting?

I remember walking into a Mom & Pop toy store in my neighborhood and saw some NHL Starting Lineups and thought they were cool so i bought them. Then about a year later my Brother got me some Spawn figures for X-mas. Here we are 17 Years later and i’m still Collecting.

What Was Your First Item?

My first ever figure was 1994 NHL Starting Lineup Mike Richter, Tom Barrasso & Arturis Irbe. My First NECA Figures were Hellraiser series 1 & the 18″ Pinhead in 2003.
