Ruben Has Joined the Ventriloquist Central Collection


So many have thought that since I sold the majority of my collection that I am done collecting but that is just not the case. Here is the proof. When I saw this figure go up for sale I knew he had to come to me.

This is the number one wood carved Ruben figure made by Timothy Cowles. I have wanted one since Tim first previewed him and I even made a deal for one with Tim but he never came through for me back then. Now I am satisfied because I have the number one.

He is full size 40 inches tall and he is fully loaded with function. Slot jaw, side to side self centering eyes, upper lip sneer, raising and lowering eyebrows, winkers, wide eye effect and wiggling ears.

The controls are placed perfectly on the head stick and the mechanics are silky smooth.

Simply a great figure!!!



Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:
