“PAWN STARS” Expert Joel Magee Hunting for ToyTreasures

EVERYONE DREAMS OF HAVING THEIR
very own time machine. Joel Magee found
his at a Midwestern flea market in 1982 for
just $20. “I went over and looked at this old
G.I. Joe lunch box,” recalled the 57-year
Sioux City, Iowa native. “All of a sudden,
a flood of memories came back. I could see
myself eating a ham and cheese sandwich in
the gym at Crescent Park Elementary. I could
see my friends and I could see everything
like I was in a time machine turning back the
clock to 1967.
Such was the power of a humble lunch box.
These days Magee helps bring the power of
vintage toys to others while showing off his
love for collecting at shows nationwide. From
board games to action figures, from model
cars to Comic books, Magee has seen it all.
He’s also bought a considerable amount
of it. And like any good collector, he owns
one of the first Barbie dolls ever made from
way back in 1959 and he owns a copy of the
original 1962 comic which brought Spider
Man to life for the first time. Plus, he’s
even got a rare Jawa from Star Wars with a
plastic cape.
“In the movie, the Jawa had a cloth cape
and somebody at the factory put on a plastic
cape,” Magee said. “George Lucas went crazy,
saying, This figure is not supposed to have a
plastic cape’ and he made them change it to
cloth. But about 100 of them still made it out
of the factory.”
Any of those toys would fetch thousands
on the open market and Magee knows that
such items can be found lying forgotten and
gathering dust in attics and garages coast to
coast. Just four years after his lunch box find,
he was on the road going to toy shows looking
for lost treasures and today he encourages
folks to attend his buying events where old
toys can be appraised and exchanged for
cold cash. His company, The Toy Scout, is
managed by himself, his wife, Kimmy, and his
daughter, Tiffany.
“I’ve had people come back five or six times
over the course of a couple of days.” Magee
said. “People bring me toys by the thousands
and at every event there are toys I’ve never
seen before.”
Magee will be on the lookout August 3rd to
August 5th when he hosts the Greater Omaha
Area Vintage Buying Show at the Hampton
Inn at Aksarben located at:
1401 South 72nd Street in Omaha.
Now recognized nationwide as “America’s
Toy Scout”, he’s set to create a TV pilot
for his very own show under that name. It
certainly won’t be his fi rst rodeo in the world
of broadcast, having already come to the
public eye on the History Channel’s hit show
“Pawn Stars” as an expert on everything

Disney related, including the theme parks.
Joel says it is an extreme honor to be the
Disney expert on the show and it is a blast
working with Rick, Corey and Chumlee. If
you visit Las Vegas, Rick just built anew
“Pawn Plaza” next door to the pawn shop
and he has anew gallery featuring some of his
most treasured fi nds, and his new restaurant,
“Rick’s Rollin Smoke BBQ &Tavern,” Chumlee has a candy shop with just about every
treat you could imagine, and they also have
behind-the-scenes tours, so make sure to visit
www.gspawn.com for details.
But Magee still loves the one-on-one personal
interaction of fi nding old toys and hearing
new stories from their owners. He encourages
everyone to rifl e through childhood items in
search of hitting hidden dirt.
Joel is often asked how old do toys have to be
to have an interest? And the magical answer
is when people reach about the age of 40 they
begin to reminisce about there childhood
and think about getting their old toys back to
revisit their childhood memories. That now
puts us to the 1980s and older. The 90s and
newer will have their day but not quite yet.
Joel does give some important advice. Be
careful not to accidentally wash the pay
dirt off before you show it to him.Wellintentioned efforts at cleaning could destroy a
valuable discovery. “People spray a toy with
Windex and the paint starts dripping off,” he
said. “Even if a toy is covered in grime, I can
still appraise it.”
Another piece of advice? The worst way
to start a collection is with items labelled
“collectible.”
“That word or ‘limited edition’ items typically
denote something with little potential to rise in
value,” he said. “It’s just a gimmick.”
Magee said that promotional toys can be
among the most valuable to save.
“The best toys to buy are those that are made
to go along with movie or TV promotions,”
he said. “If they become hits, then the toys

related to them will also be a hit and the
values will go up.”
Of course, if they don’t, they won’t be worth
anything. There is no telling what those old
toys you still have from decades gone by
might be worth –at least not until an expert
like Magee can get a look at them. That’s why
he loves talking to the public and seeing all
the items they bring to him.
“No matter what news I give them, whether
their fi nd is valuable or worthless,” he said, “I
think people appreciate getting a solid answer
so they can finally resolve that nagging

question of whether there is any money in that
old cobwebcovered toy box in eternal storage
back home.”
“Over time, everyone started calling me ‘The
Toy Scout’ because I was traveling all over
looking for this stuff, and people began to ask
me to find toys from their youth, too,” he said.
The truth is that Magee collects more than just
toys. He is a keeper of the past.
“For the last 30 years I have been scouting
America to reunite people with their
childhood memories.”

Here is a sample of what Joel will be looking for:
Pez candy dispensers with no feet, Hotwheels toy cars with red lines on the wheels, trains,
tin wind up toys, slot cars, lunch boxes, Disney & Disneyland, old advertising signs, battery
operated toys, old dolls from the 1950s and older, all kinds of movie related or super hero
toys from the 1980s and GI Joe, super hero figures, Star Wars ships and figures, cowboy cap
gun and items, Transformers, comic books from the 1970s and older, Matchbox, Barbie dolls,
even old silver coins 1964 and older.
In fact there are so many old toys
that we can’t name them all, so bring
everythingand we will be happy to
sort through.
