I know most here don't like either but...



What happens when the Toy Guru and the Toy Hunter team up? Find out on Wednesday, February 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel. We can’t wait to check out this epic meeting of the toy minds!

Toy Hunter is our kind of show. Host Jordan Hembrough is a self-professed comic-book geek who was bitten by the collecting bug at an early age. The show follows his search for the most sought after toy collectibles. In the upcoming “Money Masters,” Hembrough is tasked with a mission from Mattel — to search for vintage Masters of the Universe® memorabilia. If he succeeds, his collection will be displayed at the San Diego Comic-Con.

According to the show’s website, “Jordan still gets a thrill from meeting new collectors and seeing all the crazy and unusual items they covet.” With a special appearance on the show by our own Scott “Toy Guru” Neitlich, we’re calling this “must MOTUC TV!”

Any friend of Neitlich is more than likely of his caliber. I like Pixel Dan but because of his affiliation with Neitich, I will never trust him 100%.

I like Toy Hunter. Jordan can be kind of annoying at times, but I still enjoy the show for what it is. It's cool to see the stuff he finds.

why? as a toy reviewer, it's his job to land interviews like that. who's to say dan even likes scott? whether he does or does not, scott would make a good toy related interview; one that a lot of people would like to see. in dan's profession, he would be foolish NOT to try and get those kind of interviews.

I don't think it's his job, he does it because he loves toys and he's really good at speaking on film and doing interviews. If I was Pixel Dan, I would be around Neitlich as little as possible, but he DOES hang out with him and Val Staples, another scumbag... so yeah, Dan kinda taints himself by associating with those people.

I have no problem with Dan getting exclusive interviews... Scott Neitlich is part of the industry whether we like it or not... Its part of expanding his "Pixel Dan" brand... I cant fault him for that...

You mean Pixel Dan is good at speaking on film and doing interviews?

Cause I would disagree entirely about Pixel Dan, bless his soul, being good at speaking on film and doing interviews. I give him credit for sticking to it, keeping at it, giving it the old college try, but man oh man is it difficult to listen to him. I still follow his reviews for the pictures, though, because I appreciate those, too.

Is it his voice that you find annoying? Because I feel that way about Neitlich... except listening to Scott and watching him on video is doubly difficult for me. Dan I can tolerate though.

I don't mind the sound of his voice. And the parts of his reviews where he's not reading from a script are pretty much fine. But his delivery needs some work. It reminds me of students in journalism school who want to be on-camera personalities so badly but just don't have the ability to do it well. But more power to him for doing it. He doesn't need to please me anyway. Certainly he's improved over the years, and I'm glad he does it because he's pretty thorough and reviews a lot of different stuff.

What's weird is as an admin, you do an awful lot of trolling. I thought Veebs at the Fwoosh was bad.
