A shiny red bubble envelope was glistening in the mailbox today and I was excited to see what wonders it held. Fellow toy fans, check this out…
Now I know you’re supposed to use these press kits to write and promote about the show, but I got seriously jazzed about the design of the kit! This thing is fantastic all the way down to the die-cut peg hole at the top. A large part of my real-world job is spent designing pocket folders and media kits, and this is such a fun design, I had to share it.
Kudos to the creative team behind this kit, but I have to dock them a few points for calling Jordan a “figurine.” A figurine is made out of porcelain and produced in Germany–I’m sure “action figure” is what they meant. 😉
Looking at this list, we can expect some great episodes of Toy Hunter when it premieres on the Travel Channel on August 15 (9:00pm).
That’s right. Guess what I’ll be watching tonight. Sometimes it pays to have a blog.
Jordan Hembrough is one of the good guys, and I wish him the best with Toy Hunter. If the show is a hit, we can all sit back and watch the value of our toy collections multiply ten-fold. (Though it will be hard to find a bargain out there if the show succeeds. hmmm.)

AWESOME!! Way to go Jordan!! Thanks for the update Brian!
I would be insulted if someone called me a figurine when i am clearly an action figure!
You got that for having a blog?
Having a blog does have its perks every now and then. 😉
Awesome! I was getting worried that I hadn’t heard more about the series, but it looks like it’s only getting geared up. Can’t wait for Season One! 🙂
This is really cool. I am looking forward to the return of the show. Did the Travel Channel offer you the press release or did you solicite them? We need to have a show of our own, don’t you agree?
Absolutely John! Of course, ours would probably only feature Batman in every episode. 😉
Jordan has become a friend of the site after the premiere episode aired and I wrote up a recap. He knew I would like to keep updated on the show’s progress so he had the kit sent to me. I’m sure you could get one from the Travel Channel if you asked. You are the target market for the show after all. 😉
You know me too well, but I could do quite a bit on vintage Star Wars toys too. 🙂
Cool. I’ll have to see if they’ll send me one.
Jordan Hembrough says
Hey guys-thanks for the great comments. I am really pumped about bringing something wonderful to the market, that we can all share together.
Brian was top of the list for the press releases because Cool and Collected was such a huge supporter of the show, and a truly respected blog in the industry. I hope to work with this site in the future on updates and show scoops.. 🙂
Thank you all for your input and comments, I truly take them to heart. If anyone is going to Star Wars Celebration in August, please stop by the booth and say hello. 🙂
Thanks Jordan! I watched the first episode last night and it’s safe to say that I will continue to be your biggest fan–it was great!
All of us toy collectors are going to be glued to the TV on Wednesday nights, devouring all the items you uncover. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello, and best of luck with the show.
It’s a shame its not unpunched, it would be more valuable.
