Dan Willinger and the Ventriloquist Central Collection

I have been asked quite a few times to show pictures of the Ventriloquist Central Collection in its entirety and unfortunately, that I am not able to do but, I thought you may like seeing some shots of the collection which is around the room. If you link them all together is gives you sort of a panoramic view.

This is not the whole collection but it does show a good portion of it.

I hope you enjoy these pictures.

    Beautiful photos, Dan, thank you for sharing~ But, why can’t we “embiggen” them? Please please please please? I’d love to look at the details… A sugestion: you already wrote articles on Marshall’s hands, Marshall’s ears, Marshall’s eyebrows… What can you tell us about the wigs he used on his figures? Were they doll’s wigs, children’s wigs? Where did he get them? Were they especially made for him? Did he only used wigs or crepe hair too? Etcetera… Thanks, and keep up the GREAT work!
