9/4/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... somebody is actually trying to sell Robosaurus -- and Friday afternoon, the guys from the show "Pawn Stars" had an up close and personal meeting with the havoc-wreaker to check out the goods.

But don't get too excited -- Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison tells us the "Pawn" crew couldn't get close to the $5 million asking price ... and didn't make an offer because they didn't want the owner "to be offended."

Not pissing off the guy who controls Robosaurus is a good life choice.

This just sold at Barrett-Jacksons auction in Scottsdale 2008. Went for $632,500. Now he's asking $5,000,000? Um, sorry dude, it didn't appreciate 800% in 2 years.

"Pawn Stars" - You go selling an item for $200 (worth the money) and they go down to $25. -_____-
EBAYY!

Freaks!    

They offer low because it's instant cash and it's also called a bidnezz! I can't get over the idiots asking 100% what the rough appraisal was... clueless! The people who get mad what they were offered, do they not have any clue about how business operates (this or any other?). Geez, it must be the heat down there! Contrary to popular belief I don't think all those odds and ends would even sell on ebay (and I bet lots of them tried beforehand).

The goomba trying to sell the Pez collection was funny.
