 1. When did you start collecting?


 I started collecting in 1996.


 2. Why did you start collecting?


 Well, I supported Middlesborough at that time and chanced about a figure of Fabrizio Ravenelli with the silver hair. I remember saving up for a week and then finally buying it from the local store. For ages, that was my only figure. Until Corinthian released Prostars Series 1, then I got hooked!


 3. Which was the very first figure you purchased?


 Fabrizio Ravenelli in the Middlesborough kit. Still one of my favourite figures to date.


 4. What is your all time favourite Corinthian figure?


 I have so many, it’s hard to pinpoint one. Zidane Elite is a proper sculpt. I also like Valderrama.


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


 Probably the most I’ve paid for a figure is £12 for a Tottenham Chocolate kit Davids Select 500.


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


Winston Bogarde Ajax. I traded it for a repaint of Alan Thompson in the Bolton kit!!!


 7. Which figure did you most struggle to acquire?


 Plenty. I’m still missing a few Portuguese figures from the Headliners collection and the Japanese goalie Kawaguchi. If anyone has these for sale, let me know. Then there’s the Amoruso, Schwarz, Andersson etc etc which I don’t have.


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


 Probably 2800-3000 different ones. 500+ repaints.


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


 I would love to see an Aston Villa 16 pack, which would included these figures- Friedel, Luke Young, Beye, Dunne, Cuellar, Curtis Davies, Warnock, Delph, Sidwell, Petrov, Ashley Young, Milner, Agbonlahor, Carew, Heskey, Delfouneso. Redemption figures of Downing and manager Martin O’Neill. That would be heaven.


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


 Other than being extremely informative, it’s the gallery pictures I’m most impressed with. The fibre glass stands and the mannnnnny figures!!! Amazing!
