Milwaukee, WI (CBS 58) -- G.I. Joe might parachute in. Barbie may show up without Ken. Batman and Spiderman could provide security--Regardless of the guest list, it will be a blast from the past when Joel Magee, America’s Toy Scout® and the Disney expert on the hit TV Show Pawn Stars, hosts the Milwaukee Vintage Toy Buying Show Monday, Aug.16 through Thursday, Aug.19. 

Their will be two locations for the shows. On Monday, Aug. 16 and Tuesday, Aug.17 it'll be at the Sheraton Brookfield at 375 South Moorland Road, Brookfield, Wisconsin. 

On Wednesday, Aug. 18 and Thursday, Aug. 19 at the Courtyard Marriott, 5200 West Brown Deer Rd, Brown Deer, WI.

On-the-spot cash payments will be offered for popular toys from the 20th century and earlier.

Hundreds of people are expected to bring their childhood toys and collectibles to the Vintage Toy Buying Show.

Based on more than 300 toy-buying shows in the past 30 years, Magee, who is the leading vintage toy expert in the country, said he can expect to see people bring Pez dispensers, Star Wars and Beatles memorabilia, superhero figurines, baseball cards, 1940-60s comic books, as well as Shirley Temple dolls, Hot Wheels, and Hummel figurines.

"The types of toys and memorabilia that people dust off and bring to the show are too diverse to list. You cannot fathom the toys and games people have saved for decades," said Magee. 

The show runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission and parking for the show are free.
