    I know him. I talk with him every Botcon.
    I watched the show last night and Im just VERY suprised NO one has talked about it here.
    The Toy Hunter show got ALOT of talk and this show nothing!?

    Theres like 1,000,000,000 more to talk about with last nights show vs. Toy Hunter. Not even close.

    I didn't even realize it that episode had aired yet, and unfortunately it doesn't look like it's up on the website yet.

    it wont make it to any sites. It was one hour long and 20 minutes of footage with Davvid. Its on the Syfy channel. I was Comcast, Im not sure if DirectTV or ATT carries that channel.
    He's a very nice guy, but I feel very sorry for him.

    From the GI Joe/Hot Wheels guy:

    How did Elyse's visit help you as a collector?
    It's okay to sell things that aren't worth as much as others.

    Yep. No interest in the show.

    Though I think the comic guy put it best:

    Since appearing on the show, have your feelings or interests in collecting changed? If yes, how so?
    My feelings toward collecting have not changed much, nor do I believe they should. Collections are a personal thing, not something that would change due to an outsider shining a light on it. Hoarders get shamed into changing habits, not collectors.

    saw the preview, i like the fact the hostess looks kinda like a porn star AND knows something about the collection's history/value (sure they probably have behind the scene researchers) at least it's not the usual 'you're a hoarder and need help' from similar shows and encourage the collectors to change gradually by selling off some items that are not too important to the collector's core collection.
