Ken Spencer & Ventriloquist Figures

I thought I would throw this out to everyone reading the blog. Yesterday I showed the latest Ken Spencer figure to arrive here in the Ventriloquist Central collection. He is a great character for sure but Ken also created some really great Black figures as well.

If you look at his picture here listed with the Ken Spencer figures in the Ventriloquist Central collection you will see a wonderful black figure sitting inside the barrel. I have no idea where that particular figure is residing and thought I would throw this out to you and see if anyone knows his whereabouts.

Ken also listed in his list of characters that he created a figure called Rastus. I have yet to come across this figure either. Where are they and did he really make them??
