When did you first start collecting?
How did you first start collecting?
I started collecting action figures as an adult when I saw a few discounted Episode I peg warmers on a dusty store shelf a little over 20 years ago. Then I discovered a brand new company that was releasing some armless mini busts featuring characters from Attack of the Clones ! Enter Gentle Giant Ltd.
What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, etc.?
If I remember correctly, it was the armless Anakin Skywalker bust.
What are your favorite/most prized pieces in your collection?
That's hard to choose, they're so many great ones. I love the Sandtrooper on dewback pieces, both the original statue as well as the maquette. I also really like the 1/6 scale cantina patrons statues ( and I'd love to see some new additions to that line!). The spider/mechanical legs Maul pieces are awesome! I've always been a big fan of the animated maquettes, and would love to see more of them! Favorite busts: Right now I'd have to say the realistic versions of the Rebels animated series. I'm also really loving the new 1/7th scale animated versions from The Clone Wars and Rebels! Great quality for a great price!
What is the most recent item you've acquired?
I think the last piece I received was the Lak Sivrak bust. He was a pleasant surprise when he was announced! Always nice to get an unexpected lesser known character! I've got about 12 pieces on preorder right now. And, I have 2 busts about to ship out to me any day now! Keep up the Good work Gentle Giant Ltd. and Diamond Select Toys!
