DCCollectors: How did you get into collecting DC toys and what was your first DC toy/collectible?
Steven McKnight: Oh man, I started buying DC toys at least 30 years ago when I was still a little kid. I have been collecting DC toys for going on at least 10 years now. I can’t remember my first DC collectible, but I am 100% sure it was something to do with Superman.
DCCollectors: How many pieces are in your collection?
Steven McKnight: That’s a tough one. I don’t know for sure, but I would say it’s close to if not more than 1000 pieces.
DCCollectors: If you could only choose one item to keep, which one would it be?
Steven McKnight: If I could only keep one piece it would be my Superman Masterpiece Edition.
DCCollectors: What piece of advice do you have for those just starting their collections?
Steven McKnight: My advice to beginners is to collect what you love regardless of how big or small or price. Also if you see something you want, then get it if you are able to get it. Don’t wait and try to come back and get it, because it might not be there and you will never see it again at that retail price.
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.
Steven McKnight: I have nothing really interesting, just that I love the hunt and love collecting DC toys and collectibles. I don’t think that I am going to stop anytime soon!
