First Ever Figure Posted on Ventriloquist Central


We thought it would be fun to take a look back at the ventriloquist figures that have passed through the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

Way back in the beginning, when we started this website (back in October of 2006), this fully loaded Frank Marshall figure was the very first one posted on the site.

This may be the one of the most loaded with movements in one figure that Frank ever created. It has the following functions, slot jaw, side to side self centering eyes, crossing eyes, winkers, individual blinkers, raising eyebrows, wiggling ears, upper lip smile and stick out tongue.

He was in near mint condition when he arrived at the collection and was at one time in the collection of Jack Flosso. He then was owned by Alan Ende.

Simply one of the finest Marshall figures ever created.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. 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:
