 1. When did you start collecting?


 I originally started in 1995 on the launch, sold my entire collection about 5 years ago (had all the FAPL ones apart from Stuart, Pembridge and Dowie) Then decided about a month ago; as Corinthian have ceased with releasing anymore, to re-start.  


 2. Why did you start collecting?


 As above really.  


 3. Which was the very first figure you purchased?


 First time round it was the Man Utd 4 pack with Cantona in it (craved my dad to get it!!) On the second attempt it was Phillipe Albert in mint blister for 99p!!  


 4. What is your all time favourite Corinthian figure?


 I dont really have one to be honest I like them all!!  


 5. What is the most you have ever paid for a single figure and which figure was it?


 Can't remember first time round but up to now its Silenzi for £15. Mind you I have to get Pembridge, Dowie and Watson yet so sure to be broken!!  


 6. What is the best bargain you have ever picked up?


 I suppose the first time I started collecting was the Nottingham Forest 12 pack (including Silenzi) mint packaging for £5 off a car boot!! This time round I suppose I brought a batch of 700 figures (incl Stuart, Bishop, Dicks, Chettle, Sheridan etc etc) for £420  


 7. Which figure did you most struggle to acquire?


 Still struggling! Thanks to Craig's contacts and the people on this site hopefully the struggle will be made a little easier!!  


 8. How many figures do you have in your collection?


 At this moment 514 which I have gained in the last 4 weeks. Some others are on their way!  


 9. If Corinthian did decide to make some more figures, which player would you most like to see made?


 As a Manchester United fan the likes of Ben Foster, Berbatov, Macheda etc would have been gratefully recieved!


 10. Do you have any comments you wish to make about my site?


 Top draw, I can only imagine the time it takes to create somthing on a scale of this and top banana to you Craig for the persistance.
