The First Figure on Ventriloquist Central


We’ve posted photos and videos from our Birthday Bash 2013 that happened last month celebrating 7 years of Ventriloquist Central.

At times it’s hard to believe that it has been 7 years. As Steve and I were talking the other day we were talking about the very first ventriloquist figure that we featured on our site…..this Frank Marshall figure was the very first one.

This may be the one of the most loaded with movements in one figure that Frank ever created. Thought I would share him with you once again.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:

    The boy figure I had Frank Marshall make for me, after being overhauled with all of the extra effects, and which I no longer have, looked so much like this one. I am glad that you are a collector and that you have this figure in your collection.
