Welcome to Toy Land

Welcome to Toy Land

“Welcome to Toy Land!” This is the one place where I can finally relax and catch up on the events of the day. I like to surround myself with some of my latest finds … how many can you recognize from your childhood?” - Jordan Hembrough

Jordan Hembrough: A self professed comic-book geek and film buff, Jordan was bitten by the collecting bug at an early age, as he adorned his bedroom with Star Wars toys and comic action hero action figures. He quickly learned that he could make more money selling toys to his school peers, than he could on any paper route. At age 16 Jordan began buying and selling toys professionally and never looked back.

The New Jersey native spent 7 years as a buyer for an international chain of comic book/Sci-Fi themed retail stores, specializing in the procurement and allocation of collectible toys.

Jordan has also appeared on stage and in front of the camera. His stage work has taken him from the Searchlight Theatre in New Jersey to the famed Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA.

In 1998, he founded Hollywood Heroes where he both sells collectible toys and film props to the collectible market and offers consulting services to toy and entertainment companies.

After being in the industry for more than 20 years, Jordan still gets a thrill from meeting new collectors and seeing all the crazy and unusual items they covet.

Summing up his career Hembrough says, “It’s the hunt that has always driven me. The next cool find is always right around the corner.”
