Meeting Travel Channel's Toy Hunter Jordan Hembrough at WonderCon Anaheim 2013

Being a huge toy collector of many things from Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and so much more, we have been waiting for a show to feature toys or collecting. Last January 2012 would finally give us a program that would feature toys, originally called Toy Hunters 
(now called Toy Hunter) hosted by Jordan Hembrough. When we got the news of a pilot episode airing on the Travel Channel, we immediately shared the news. We would soon get to chat with, email, and Interview Jordan Hembrough about the hopes of a new series for toy collectors and fans. 

WonderCon Anaheim 2013 was this past weekend and we were there for to see and meet some of our favorite artists, writers, and creators in comics and amazing panels and exhibitors. One surprise was that we would finally get to meet Jordan Hembrough in person. It has been over a year talking on the phone, emailing, or interviewing, but this time face to face. 

Jordan Hembrough was actually doing some filming for Travel Channel's Toy Hunter at WonderCon, which was pretty awesome. As we were talking awhile, I would see a surprise guest coming to his Hollywood Heroes booth, Peter Mayhew (Yes, the real Chewbacca!!). 

Just as you see Toy Hunter on television, Hollywood Heroes had a very impressive booth filled with hundreds of vintage toys that I drooled over and remembering having as a kid. Ok, I actually still may have a lot of this in the collection. 

Who likes plush toys?

WonderCon Anaheim 2013 was amazing once again! Last year was terrific, but this year was seriously bigger and much more crowded with many geeks, nerds, and fans. Thank to Jordan Hembrough for taking the time to chat for a bit. We will see the return of Travel Channel's Toy Hunter next week on April 10th.
