When Daniel walks into the store with dozens of toys from “Toy Story, “ Corey asks if he robbed a toy store. Fortunately, he didn’t. Instead, he brought his entire Toy Story collection. From the start, this salesman knows exactly what he wants, but he’s worried that not all the toys are in the box. Corey calls toy guy Steve Johnston, who is right across the street, to find out more about the value of these toys.
The first thing Steve points out is the importance of this film to the film industry. Not only was this the first Pixar movie, but it was the first fully CG animated feature film. The movie was so big that Tom Hanks (who has a new movie on Netflix that people love) took $ 500,000 for the first “Toy Story,” and asked for $ 5 million to make the sequel. As a result, the toy production team didn’t use Tom Hanks as the voice of Toy Woody, but rather his brother, who is apparently the low-cost Hanks.
Here’s the catch, though: a lot of Daniel’s toys are out of the box. If they were all in the original boxes, the collection could cost between $ 1,500 and $ 2,000. Instead, Steve estimates that this mismatched collection would sell for around $ 400. Corey and Daniel are both disappointed. Corey offers $ 300 because he needs to make a profit. The two agree on $ 325, and now Daniel has a lot more space in his collection room for new models.
