Operating a Ventriloquist Figure From A Distance

It is always fun to show items that you will not see very often and this certainly fills the bill. Pneumatics were being used in the 19th century and found their way into the ventriloquist world too.

The figure you are about to see is an early Mack Figure which fills the bill of both unusual and pneumatic from the early 20th century.

    Dan would it be possible to see how the pneumatic was rigged?

    Another interesting demostration Dan. I to would love to see the workings inside this figure if possible, unless his head is sealed up then I know it would be a chore. Thanks again as this is what keeps me going as a figuremaker.
