Victor Rudik began collecting small-scale figures in the late 1970s.

His collection is over 270,000 pieces, making it one of the largest in the world.

It includes some of the most unusual and rare figures and sets ever made:  prototype figures, wargaming pieces made for the U.S. military in the 1950s, chromed plastic spacemen, a Lone Star D-Day Invasion Playset, and 1938 Winterhilfswerk figures.

He and his collection have been featured in The Toronto Star and Bloor West Villager newspapers, and on Liquid Lunch.
