Plot Synopsis

Acclaimed toy dealer Jordan Hembrough, founder of Hollywood Heroes, travels across America to poke through cramped attics and rummage around dirty garages to score vintage items and sought-after pieces. In each 30-minute episode, Hembrough strategically maneuvers around reluctant sellers -- a diverse group of enthusiasts including former Kenner toy designers in Ohio, flea market pickers in Ashville, North Carolina and vintage toy store owners in Austin, Texas -- and avoids unforeseen roadblocks, as he tracks down those rare toys during the first season, including: THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN Venus Space Probe (released in 1977); GI Joe: "Pimp Daddy" Destro (1997); Jurassic Park Prototypes (1994); Luke Skywalker Telescoping Lightsaber (1977); Care Bears Treat Heart Pig (1982); Barbie #1 in box (with brunette hair) (1959); and many more. TOY HUNTER returned for Season 2 on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT with back-to-back new episodes, featuring Gene Simmons asking Jordan to find the rarest KISS memorabilia and then a trip to Virginia, where Jordan and his sidekick Steve finding a Six Million Dollar Man Control Center and a Fonz pinball machine.
