Collecting—be they designer clothes, shoes, toys—has become a hobby for some celebrities.
Some are motivated by passion; others are into it as an investment.
Actors Alden Richards, Gerald Anderson, and dancer Yexel Sebastian fall into both categories.
They have one other thing in common: their love for Iron Man.
Did you know that on eBay, a life-size statue of this Marvel Comics character is being sold as much as US$15,900 or PHP806,000?
Take a look at their massive collection below.
GMA-7 actor Alden Richards houses his collection of Iron Man action figures in his ”man cave" at his home in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
In an article in YES! magazine (January 2017), the Kapuso actor relates how his obsession with the Marvel comics character started.
Alden says, "Ewan ko nga, basta na-in love na ako kay Iron Man since I saw Iron Man na si Robert Downey Jr. ang gumanap."
A life-size Iron Man statue is also found inside his bedroom, standing guard, while the smaller ones are assembled neatly on the shelves beside his bed.
The Eat Bulaga! host says he has lost count of his Iron Man collection.
"By visuals ko lang siya mine-memorize," he remarks, adding that some of the pieces are gifts from friends and fans.
Alden says he plans to bequeath his collection to his future kids.
He tells YES!, "Well, basically, at one point, kapag nagka-family na ako, of course, I could pass them on to the kids.
"Ganoon naman talaga, e, kapag may gusto ka na isang bagay, there will come a time na you have to let go."
ABS-CBN actor Gerald Anderson is also a big fan of Iron Man.
The 28-year-old Star Magic talent also has a life-size Iron Man statue inside in his room.
He also has a display shelf filled with Iron Man action figures.
Here's a closer look at his life-size Iron man statue.
Former dance/actor Yexel Sebastian probably has one of the most extensive Iron Man collection in the country.
Dozens of Iron Man action figures can be found inside his Toy Museum in Las Piñas City.
He also has at least 15 life-size statues of different Iron Man armors and more than 10 Iron Man busts.
Yexel has an estimated 7,000 pieces of toys in his museum worth at least PHP8 million in total.
