Fire-Breathing Robosaurus Scares Off 'Pawn Stars'

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.

Freaks!    

Just watched again on Youtube Joe the Pez collector trying to sell his Pez collection to the son and Chumlee. Watching some old goomba wannabe mobster/Jersey Shore reject trying to pawn that stuff is hilarious.
Btw, what are "chooches"?

C'mon people, Pawn Stars is another "staged" reality show. Don't believe me then try to buy something you saw on the show from them.

And the owner of Robosaurus is those thieves over at Barrett-Jackson. Robosaurus is in Las Vegas for the BJ auction later this month. Wow what a coincidence.

Yeah, I understand that they are a bizneth, and people get upset from being lowbawled, but who came where to do what ? And Look at it from the capitalist pigs perspective: What have I got to lose? What I don't understand is why they don't sleep on the petty offers since they usually "let the offer stand" or try to sell it on Craig's List ? It's hard to say who is the moron sometimes.

I will no longer watch Pawn Stars because the old man is overbearing and borderline
stupid throwback from the old days, the grand son Chumlee is unknowledgable and
silly and the best of the family is Rick - who one can take in spurts. However,
overall, the show is a strain to watch

All you people who think you can sell stuff for lots of money on ebay are just dumb or uninformed. maybe 5 or 6 years ago you could post a turd on ebay and get 50 bucks for it but today you get nothing on ebay.

I sell and buy collectibles and vintage electronics on ebay and I have seen the value plummit lately.

If I had a pawn stars here I would be thrilled. I would be happy to take 40% of fair market value for something rather then pay a 5 dollars listing fees a 5 dollar final value and get 10 dollars for an item worth 20 dollars. (if it sells at all).

People go into the pawn shop wanting stupid money for items and get offered a very fair sum. grow up people and understand that these guys are in business to make money. not to simply pay people for their crap.

Please, will everybody take a chill pill, lay back, relax and enjoy. I thought I was the last person that would be watching Pawn Stars. But I gotta tell ya, I love it. It's down to earth, funny and they make money doing it. I've had to visit a pawn shop or two in my life. And guess what? This 57 yr old disabled college graduate is grateful that those guys have the drive and hutzpah. Pawn shops have been around and will be around for a long while. Nothing shameful. After all, you never know what treasurer one might find...
