Listen to Our Audio Interview with Travel Channel’s Mr. Toy Hunter – Jordan Hembrough

Posted by at 12:45 am on August 15, 2012

We were lucky enough to get a few minutes with Jordan Hembrough before his new show on the Travel channel, Toy Hunter, premieres on Wednesday, August 15 at 10|9c.

Toy Hunter follows Jordan as he travels all across the country, on what he calls “the great American toy hunt.” the goal is finding all the toys from the 70′s and 80′s that people like Jordon and I grew up with.

“It’s like a cool version of geeky, nerdy version of Antique Road,”  Jordan says.

Now this is a man after my own heart.  As an adult  he had every Star Wars figure released after 1995, starting with the first run of orange cards, the return of Star Wars figures in the run-up to the re-release of the original trilogy and the even the prequels. And yes they are are all boxed and clean.

On of the stories is about Jordan and his staff at Hollywood Heroes-  Nickie, Steve and Richard, being at Comic-Con with the mission of making $20,000. He was also on the hunt for Rocket Firing Boba Fett!
