    I was wondering when they'd have something like that on the show. Should be pretty interesting to see.

    I was just talking to my wife about how cool it would be to see someone do that. I'll definately be checking that one out.

    I'm guessing lots of fans are gonna be busy screaming at the TV when the collector is wrongly informed that they have next to no value.

    I watch the show and love it, but I really don't see any of the guys there being able to put a proper price on vintage TFs.

    Actually, I'd be surprised. I saw an episode where they gave a guy a decent amount of money for an Atari 2600 and some games, and made the claim that "vintage video games are starting to be worth something." But like, I'm pretty sure Ataris are still flea market fodder. People on ebay pay way more for Transformers, and I'd be scratching my head if the Pawn Stars guys didn't know that.

    They really over-payed on that, and didnt even test it first, or check to see what games were with it.

    Man I watch that show all the time, I will be checking for the TF episode. If the seller goes to Chum Lee it will be worth the laugh.

    That they may be. But a working Atari 2600/NES/SNES/Sega Master system/Genesis is actually worth something. Those old cart systems are gaining in value due to nostalgia. Just like G1 TF's.

    Not every vintage system is worth money. the genesis, for instance. a genesis system will go for 20 unless the buyer is an idiot.

    Atari 2600s rarely go above 40. with the box, I've seen them sell for as low as 30, so even that doesnt really help the value much.

    I just saw the preview for it and me, my fiance, and my roommate all screamed "OH MY GOD!" and I did a slow-mo/pause on my DVR over and over so we could see what there was. There was AT LEAST 8 Powermaster Optimus Prime, about 16 of each Dinobot (with different colorations), a ton of Constructicons, a few G1/G2 Scorponoks....man...if the Pawn Stars guys didn't buy the collection, I wonder if the dude knows about TFW...or if he's got an eBay account.

    This should be on the news page. History Channel would get even higher ratings for the time slots in which the episode airs and re-airs.

    I just saw the commercial for it. The whole room and floor in the guy's house is covered in Transformers. The walls have al ot of posters it looks like as well. I wonder if this collector is a TFW member?!?!?

    :lol  Chumley walks into the room and says, "HOLY MOTHER OF TRANSFORMERS!!!"

    Just watched the commercial. Could only make a G1 Devastators, a G1 Sunstreaker, and some G1 Shockwaves I think.

    I went back on my DVR and paused it on one of the shots. This guy has to have at least 500 he's selling. IDK if they're original G1, knockoff, or reissues, but they're mostly G1 & G2 based figures.

    From what I can make out he has at least:

    - 15 sets of Dinobots
    - 5 Powermaster Primes
    - 3 Ultra Magnus'
    - 8 Soundwaves
    - 6 Blasters
    - 10 Skorponocks
    - 15 Devastators (G1 & G2)
    - Bucketful of casetts
    - 4 of what look to be Sixshot
    - Numerous Primes (Ultra Magnus cabs as well)

    This guy is sitting on a motherload!!! I also recognized some Beast Wars figures, but I don't see anything that dates after that.

    I can't wait!
