He’s back! Well almost. The Toy Hunter, aka Jordan Hembrough, will be returning on January 29th with more adventures in toy hunting. The show has become a hot topic among collectors, especially some of the prices things are sold at. But regardless if you agree with Jordan or not, it can be pretty entertaining. I know I enjoy watching him discover new toys in his journey across the country.
This new season will feature even more celebrity clients, including Hulk Hogan, Gary Busey, Vanilla Ice, Daryl “DMC” Daniels (Run-DMC), Stan Lee (Marvel Comics) and Taboo (Black Eyed Peas). Oh man, Busey, that is going to be entertaining for sure. Can’t wait to see that one. So be sure to set those DVRs or tune in on January 29th at 9pm EST/PST on the Travel Channel.

CHEVY CHASE, MD (January 6, 2014) – More Toys, More Celebs, More Money! Acclaimed toy dealer Jordan Hembrough is back on the hunt to find the holy grail of toys and collectibles with bigger price tags that earn bigger profits in the third season of “Toy Hunter,” premiering on Wednesday, January 29 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. This season, the scope of Hembrough’s travels expands beyond basements and attics – taking him to bigger conventions, more Comic-Cons and overseas. Hembrough is in search of iconic memorabilia for his high-profile clients including Gary Busey, Vanilla Ice, Hulk Hogan, Stan Lee and Taboo (Black Eyed Peas).
“We were all kids once and loved playing with toys,” said Hembrough. “And, in the new season of ‘Toy Hunter,’ viewers are able to join me again on the ultimate road trip to search for those toys and collectibles that celebrate their youth.”
In the premiere episode, Hembrough, founder of Hollywood Heroes – a New Jersey-based vintage and modern collectibles company – teams up with hip-hop icon Daryl “DMC” Daniels of legendary group Run-DMC and travels to Staten Island, New York on a quest to find vintage toys. From Big Jim’s Camper to Action Jackson, Hembrough and the music icon score some amazing collectibles to give to the kids at Camp Felix, DMC’s charity. On his own, Hembough continues his toy search for the kids and his other clients and picks-up some great finds including the “Space: 1999” Eagle 1 Spaceship and the 1960’s Fort Apache carry-all action play set.
In each of the thirteen half-hour episodes, Hembrough travels the globe armed with his encyclopedic knowledge of toy history and savvy skills of negotiation to track down the rarest pieces for his clients. Whether it’s the Dr. Kromedome doll from “The Six Million Dollar Man” worth $4,000 purchased in Birmingham, United Kingdom or the pristine set of “Star Wars” action figures found in Scottsdale, Arizona – Hembrough and his team are always on the lookout for that special toy. This season, Hembrough finds himself buying and selling in many cities across the country including Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego and Cleveland.
