DCCollectors: How did you get into collecting DC toys and what was your first DC toy/collectible?
Scott Day: I’ve always been a massive DC fan since I was a child, then when I got older and Smallville came out my passion for Superman and DC really took off. I started with just a few DC Collectible figures on a shelf and over several years it’s become a whole room. My first collectible was the new 52 Superman figure.
DCCollectors: How many pieces are in your collection?
Scott Day: It’s hard to say how many items are in my collection, but I’ve managed to fill an entire room. I wouldn’t know where to begin counting!
DCCollectors: If you could only choose one item to keep, which one would it be?
Scott Day: If I could choose one item to keep it probably would be my Superman Kotobukiya figure, It was the first really expensive statue a bought.
DCCollectors: What is the one item that you really want to add to your collection?

DCCollectors: What piece of advice do you have for those just starting their collections?
Scott Day: The biggest peice of advice for new collectors would be to look about and be patient, Set notifications on auction sites and look regularly. There can be bargains and rare collectibles to be found if you look hard enough.
DCCollectors: Do you have an interesting story regarding the collection, such as meeting someone famous while shopping for your toys, or a super deal you got on something? Something along those lines.
Scott Day: I have been extremely lucky to have won a few social media competitions, some with prizes I couldn’t have afforded to buy myself. One of the biggest and most treasured items I’ve won is the limited edition Police Justice League watch. Proudly on display and never worn.
