Chances are by now you've seen the History Channel's TV show Pawn Stars. Recently, they have been airing and episode where they meet with a Transformers collector with a lot of robots. See multiple copies of many G1 figures like Fortress Maximus, Scorponok, Mirage and many more that won't believe. Thanks to forums member Backfire who posted a whole mess of stills from the show.

Now you can marvel at the images of insanity or watch the whole episode online at www.history.com. The TFs start at 19:00 on the clip. Thanks to Garrett Feddema of our Facebook page!

Did they use the picts I posted? 48 listed in the gallery and that's how many I posted???

It's OK if they did, a little credit would be nice though, looks like my picts. Sorry about the blurry shots, my cable connection stinks!

i saw this episode on monday at 10, and when the pawn star Rick said i will give you 5,000 for it i thought to myself this guy is absolutly retarded 5,000 for a collection this huge, he rips people off and he thinks this TF Fan will sell all of this for 5 or 10 thousand your the stupidest person on the planet

They are a pawn shop so I don't really get mad at the store for offering such a low amount, I get mad at the person selling it because they should know how to say "No". Like the lady with the Alice in Wonderland book looking for $10k and was offered $5k. If they don't ask or make an offer the answer's ALWAYS no right? :tflaugh

I do get irritate when they use the line "..well in this economy..." :lame

i'm not mad i just had say that, $10K for that book was way to much try about $1-3k, i know that they have to make a low price but you would never get a low price for all of those TF

Well, in this economy (heh) some people just need money and fast. Many people hope to make the money back later and come back for it, but that is unfortunately not the truth a lot of times.

I was glad to see him not accept $10K for it. I think if they offered $15k though he would have probably taken it. Let's just hope that he has at least 3- 6 months before his child arrives. $5k in labor? What the heck is that all about.

The hardest part of the whole thing would be cataloging it.

Very impressive collection. No doubt since he didn't sell it to the pawn shop he and the appraiser exchanged numbers. Very unlikely they didn't, unless they couldn't because of contractual agreements on being on the show. :shrug

Wouldn't selling them off in a short amount of time saturate the market and decrease the value? Supply vs. Demand? :tfevil

Has there ever been someone who tried to Sell their Neo-Geo Home Cart collection to them?

There are a few really rare ENGLISH home carts that are worth $20k - $40k in MINT condition. Crazy. :wat

i wish this guy was my brother, uncle, cousin or what ever. i just wish i knew him.

must not covet... must not covet... :redface

Emerje - 2010-07-15 @ 12:02 am

I was watching this with my brother and I told him right off when I saw the collection there was no way they would buy this. First off collectors on this scale know what their collection is worth and aren't likely to budge so that's one barrier. The second is barrier is that the guys at the shop HATE buying things they have to work to sell, they much prefer to just stick something on the shop shelf and wait for someone to walk in. A collection like this would have to be split up in a meaningful way to sell well and they don't have that knowledge which would mean bringing in another person(s) to do so. For us it would probably be an easy thing to sell, but for them not so much.

If I was the guy that came in to estimate the value I'd wait for the show to pack up and leave and then come back and start cherry picking the best pieces from the collection. That guy knew his stuff and could easily turn a profit without outside help while offering a good deal to the seller.

Now WHY isn't he a part of these kind of forum? I'd like to think he just brought the Pawn Stars guys there just to get a proper appraisal but he did know what he was looking for. I think as the seller he should have high balled it first only because the pawn borkers were set to rip him off already! I mean c'mon...$5,000 seems more like a kick to the groin more than anything else.

Wish the show would have at least posted a number or e-mail address for the dude!

Transformers Mecca indeed it was! :thumb

You're right. He can easily make a lot of money if he put them up individually on eBay. Although undercutting him on the appraised $20k to $5, that's crazy.

I think his target price was $10,000 from the start. If you watch the show regularly you would notice the guy from Pawn shop never pay anything more than 50% of the appraised.
