A young Bob Isaacson and Turner Figure

When we put up our last mystery vent I really thought it could possible stump you because he was pictured with a Turner figure but you are all to smart and for the most part guessed correctly. It was Bob Isaacson with his first figure a Turner figure named Archie.

Bob contacted me when I put up the Turner figure for sale on the Ventriloquist Marketplace because that Turner figure so resembled his original Archie that he just had to have it.

Once he received the Turner he redid it and now it really does look like Archie. I named it Archie 2 for Bob. He sent me a picture of before, like he purchased him, and after picture. I hope you enjoy seeing them.

    Who wouldn’t have recognized Bob’s smile? That was the give away for me. Oh and Bob’s restoration work on Archie 2 is top notch as always.
