Ventriloquist Central Collection Video Series – Walt Botley Superb Figure

you tube ventriloquist central collection walt botley superb figure

Here’s a video showing a Walt Botley Superb ventriloquist figure. One of the unsung figure makers from across the pond is Walt Botley.

This figure was made in the early 1970’s and is all original including his 1970’s clothing. This really is the way I like to find figures. He stands a tall 37″ and has moving lower lip, side to side moving eyes and his right eye winks.

The paint and wig are also original to him and have not been touched. His body is all original including his hands which look very similar to the hands Len Insull made.
