My good friend from the Philippines Ony Carcamo just sent me this and I wanted to share it with our community. It shows that Frank’s creations are still out there to be had but you do have to keep your eyes peeled and be ready to step up when they do appear.
Hi Dan, my friend…
Being a Marshall fan and expert that I know you are, I believe you’ll be interested in this. I attached some pictures of the newest figure in my dummy family.
He also appeared in the last part of this television comedy sitcom segment (aired nationally) where I recently guested with my figures.
Have a great day!
Ony Carcamo, Ventriloquist
Conrats to you Ony on your newest member of your ventriloquist figure family.

This appears to be a Tik figure by Marshall.
And the other figure in the video, the one fighting with the one I know Ony made, appears to be in the Marshall style, and I’ll bet it is by Carcamo also.
Perhaps Ony hasn’t had a chance to correct this info yet Dan, but this is actually a figure Ony made from a casting I sold him quite a while back via ebay. He did a magnificent job on it, definitely – but this isn’t an “original” Marshall. It is a reproduction made by Ony. It looks great!
The other figure is a Hartz figure, done in the 1980s. I just had to repaint him myself for him to look more Filipino (because we have a slightly darker skin tone).
If it fooled Dan…then it can only mean that Ony did a fantastic job. :)
Great work my friend…
