Peter LeRose

Peter LeRose

Pete has been involved in the toys and collectibles industry since the early 1990's. Originally starting in the hobby as just a collector, Pete gradually expanded to be a very well-know vendor and source for many rare and obscure 1980's toy collectibles. While most of his collecting days focused specifically on Star Wars, Pete quickly changed gears and focused more on Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, M.A.S.K., and a few other prominent 1980s toy lines. He hit the ground running early on with these non-Star Wars toy lines when there weren't too many collectors focusing on them.   

Gradually Pete's hobby became a business, and that business has been a major focus of his life for the past 20 years. Back in the early 2000's, Pete owned and operated a website called www.Toysandtoons.com which was a source for numerous high end and obscure toy collectibles. Since then he has moved his focus away from the webiste to running businesses both on eBay and Amazon and still travels to appear at most of the major toy shows and cons. 

With all the years' experience in the hobby and the countless connections Pete has made, he is considered to be very knowledgeable with a large selection of 1980's toy lines with a focus on Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, and M.A.S.K. His working knowledge of these toy lines, both domestic and Foreign has allowed him for years to help educate fellow collectors as to production differences and variations as well as help identify legitimate examples and finely forged reproductions.
