I was a fan of Pawn Stars long before tonight’s episode, but now I will be glued to the tube whenever a new show airs, hoping they feature something as great as they did tonight.
Rick and Chumlee visit the home of Will, who has a serious Transformers habit. It looks like this guy has five of everything, all arranged in neat rows. I think he must have spent all his money on his toys and didn’t have anything left over for shelves.
Chumlee’s initial reaction to seeing the collection sums it up perfectly.
Check out the sheer volume of Transformers included in the collection:
One of the great things about watching Pawn Stars is that you can learn a lot about things you never knew even existed. You can bet after all the moms across America watched this episode, they went digging through the toys stashed away in their basements or attics. Of course, you and I know that the box a toy comes in can be worth more than the toy it once held, but how many of you knew that this Fortress Maximus box could sell for $300 by itself?
Rick and Chumlee invite Johnny, a local toy expert, to give an appraisal of the entire collection. He values it at $15-20,000.00, but to reach that price, the collection will have to be parsed out and sold separately, which would be a ton of work.
Rick lowballs his first offer, as usual:
The owner denies the offer and Rick instantly ups his price to $10,000 but it’s still not enticing enough, so Rick and Chumlee leave empty-handed, but I bet Johnny made an offer!
I love Pawn Stars and when they feature items and collections like this, it makes me love it even more. Even if they only feature old firearms and Coke collectibles, it’s still worth watching just for Chumlee.
