Season 3, Episode 6

Taboo Toys

Jordan is in Los Angeles, CA at the Frank & Sons Collectible Show. He's meeting up with Grammy award winning artist, Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas to dig through 65,000 square feet of toys, sneakers, and sports memorabilia. Taboo scores the first buy, an OJ Simpson action figure and 2 Rocky action figures that he haggles down for $235. The duo heads to the next vendor where Jordan checks out Shogun Warriors' Gaiking and agrees to buy it for $200. Taboo then asks the vendor if he has any LJN Wrestling figures, because old school wrestlers' stage presence is his inspiration when performing. Jordan tells Taboo that he'll keep his eyes out for any of the figures he's looking for and leaves the show with a new mission. Jordan heads to Louisville, KY with Steve, who has two digs lined up with collectors that will hopefully have some wrestling figures. First up is Connie, whose late husband began collecting toys when he was working for toy manufacturer, Hasbro. Steve finds a 1988 My Little Pony, Loving Family Ponies that he trots away with for $50. Steve then finds a store display Oscar Meyer Wiener-mobile that he grabs for $350, while Jordan picks up a Transformers Beast Wars Megatron gold edition for $2000. Although they didn't find anything wrestling related at Connie's, they still picked up a few great things and have a chance to find Taboo's figures at Tim's house. Tim is a HUGE wrestling collector but unfortunately, he's only looking to sell items in his storage space, which doesn't consist of much. Finally, they find some LJN figures but not in the best condition. Out of the lot, Jordan only grabs a Randy 'Macho Man' Savage for $80. Now they have to scramble to find somewhere else to find at least one other figure for Taboo. Steve makes some calls and he and Jordan heads to Hogan's Beach shop in Clearwater, FL to dig through Hulk Hogan's personal stash of vintage wrestling memorabilia. They meet up with Hogan's co-owner Ron who takes them into the back to do a little digging. They first find a Deluxe Hulk Hogan Workout Set that they start reminiscing about, until Hulk Hogan himself pays a visit to the Beach Shop. He shows them where the real money is, and pulls out a 1989 Grand Toys Hulk Hogan mint on the card. Jordan and Hulk go back and forth on the figure until they finally agree on an even $700. Jordan flies solo back to Los Angeles, CA to deliver the two wrestling figures he managed to find for Taboo. After explaining that he got the Hulk Hogan card from the man himself, Jordan is able to sell the figure for a little more than its worth and gets $1000 for it, along with another $150 for the LJN Macho Man 'Randy Savage' figure. More importantly, he now has another celebrity client that is happy with his work and wants to do business with again in the future.
