Just wait till one of you finds some MOTU toys you really want at a yard sale or a flea market and the person running the sale wants 10 times the ebay value because "these are worth a lot of money, I saw it on that thar toy show on the tee-vee duurrrrr!"...see how much you like the show then! (and yes, that has already happened to me a few times)
I don't know, I guess the show is sort of fun.
Like has already been said, though, it puts such a silly twist on things because the focus is on how much money all of these toys are worth. Oh well. I guess our secret is out. Now everyone knows why all of us toy collectors are so incredibly rich!
I was at our small comic and toy show today, and guess who was there filming? I got to watch for about 45 minutes, and even had to sign a release in case I was shown on camera.
Afterwards, as he was walking the show, I got to meet him. Nice guy, but all business. He even plugged the new season to me as we were parting ways.
Hey gang! I was pleasantly suprised to see Scott Neitlich (aka - Toy Guru) on tonight's episode of the Toy Hunter The Toy Hunter sold him a vintage Savage He-Man. They did a quick closeup of his Spirit of Grayskull figure that instantly made me jealous
Anyways, if you have not seen the show or episode I highly recommend it!! It is on the Travel Channel and new episodes are on Wednesdays.
Thanks for the heads up, just got done watching the show. Scott does have quite the collection.
What a fun episode. Taking a peak at Scott's collection reminded me of the collections that people show off around here, and that he's a collector and a fan just like one of us. Definitely cool to have someone like that in our corner at Mattel. I think people sometimes forget that he is ONE OF US and FAN first.
I tried to watch it, but there were too many commercials. That's just like Scott, forcing us to watch all those commercials. We were promised a 30 minute show, and by my count it was only 22 minutes long! That's false advertising and a breach of contract!
It was cool to see him. But I thought it was disingenuous of the show to not mention he's the actual BRAND MANAGER of He-Man and works for Mattel.
Also, I wish they could have given us another few seconds to view that 10,000 figure collection they said he had (Or even mentioned MOTUC).....
Contact me if you have MOTU Merchandise Items for sale or trade! Please view a sampling of what I am looking for Here:
I sure hope this thread isn't going to go negative. I for one was pretty impressed by his collection. He has 10000 masters of the universe. So I think that makes him a collector. And yes I found it odd that they didn't mention he works for Mattel. But all in all I liked the episode.

I so wanted the Wonder Bread / Savage He-Man mystery to be solved. #disappointed

Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.
Some ugliness had to be removed. Let's not get into a debate about any board member's (which includes Toyguru) level of fandom. thanks.
I haven't watched the episode yet, but it's on the DVR to watch later today. Can't wait!
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago......a stable place sufficed.
What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.
meh.. pass on this show. All this show does is crank up the market value on toys an make them cost alot more than should, which in turn makes it even harder for ppl who want them but then cant afford them due to over-inflated market prices!

I liked it. I wish they would of actually spent more time on 80's toys and with Scott. I loved seeing that Spirit of Grayskull figure on his shelf. Also he really needs to frame those maps.
