Because men eating bizarre foods (hehe see what I did there… it’s the name of the show) and downing meals of epic proportions isn’t enough, the Travel Channel will air a new reality series… about toys and and collectibles. Seems a little out of their wheelhouse, but I do like toys so…
Watch Travel Channel’s new reality TV show this January 15th, and follow Toy and Collectibles dealer Jordan Hembrough and his team as they travel the country searching for rare and valuable toys and pop culture collectibles! Learn about the history of some of the most popular toy lines in the past 30 years and follow Hembrough as he hunts for the Holy Grails of the collecting community.
The first episode will take Hembrough and his Hollywood Heroes to New York Comic Con, as Hembrough and his team search for rare collectibles. Can Jordan “seal the deal” and turn his new found treasures into Toy Gold?! Tune in Jan 15th and find out! Tune in at 11:00pm on Travel Channel. Check your local listings.
So, it’s like American Pickers, but with toys. If you’re a toy fan or even a vintage toy fan in general, this will be a must watch show. If you’re anything like me, however, seeing grown men get grabby with plastic idols will make you sad. Adults gettin’ wide-eyed over dolls isn’t the problem. I’m a man-child myself. It’s seeing these dudes scoring big on toys I no longer have (thanks Mom for throwing away all my Thundercats and G.I. Joes.) or will ever own is what will infuriate me. The jealousy!
