I collect - My collection consists of "monstrous" Bowen mini-busts. I stay away from the heroes and focus on the villains, the weirder looking the better. I have only owned one FS, Cap Metallic, but gave it away about a year ago for a local auction. Since then I'm itching to start a FS collection but will wait until we have more space to display them.
Sculpting, movies, baseball (Yankees), football (Jets), fantasy sports, Kempo, spending time with my family, and watching endless hours of "My Little Pony" with my daughter. I'm reading the Game of Thrones series now and loving it.

Tell us more... I've enjoyed my time here on the site and have had an opportunity to chat with a lot of great people. Some of you guys have incredible collections and it's great to see how creative everyone can be in their displays.
I decided to try my hand at sculpting about a year ago and have a great time doing it. I'm absolutely blown away by some of the amazing work seen here from both professionals and laymen. I think it's very cool that Randy participates so much on this forum and gives the fans a chance to voice their opinion on future projects. Thanks to Al, Gene, and the Mods for letting me be a part of such a fun site.
