Len Insull Figure Projects


A couple weeks ago I was very fortunate to be able to make a deal with Lee Roberts over in England and purchased a couple 7 movement heads with eyes and hands and legs for these heads. They were in need of much work.

A great guy and and up and coming ventriloquist figure builder in his own right, Austin Phillips, has been actively seeking an Insull figure but just had not found one. I contacted him and he came down to the Ventriloquist Central Collection, he has been here before, and he shared the purchase with me and received one of the projects.

Austin had a bit more work on his than I had on mine and he has been making great progress.

Mine needed the eyes installed then finish paint and wig. I have in fact installed the eyes and the finish work is now beginning.

I want to thank Lee Roberts for allowing us to bring these Insull figures back to life. I know his dad would be very happy!!
