  1. Johnny Main’s “Archie.”
    I can dream, can’t I?

    since meeting Vicki Taylor, I would love Ronnie in my collection. She still is a class act

  3. Philip Grecian says:

    Oooo. That’s a tough one. It’s like asking, “If you could own any famous painting or sculpture, which one would you choose?”
    Tell you what…how about if I test drive each one of ’em for a period of…maybe six or eight months and give you my decision when I’m done.

    I would have to say that I would love to have the Country Bumkin Figure by Conrad Hartz. When can I expect him?

  5. Scott Bryte says:

    You’ve got a lot of very cool stuff, but picking a favorite is easy – the “pre-Charlie” Mack.

  6. Well, no doubt about it, the figure I would LOVE to have would be Cy Leonard’s Happy… I think Happy is the MOST beautiful and amazing figure ever made… And the way he looks now after being restored is just magnificent… Yup, I wouldn’t mind to have Happy (just don’t tell Napoleon that I said that, I do love him but… Happy is Happy!).
    Yes, Pete, we can dream, I sooo agree.

    Dizzy Dugan!

    Well that’s not very humble, but to be honest I would like to have your McElroy figure over here in germany. I saw all the videos you posted on your blog demonstrating his mechanics and his great expression nearly a hundred times.

  10. I’m just curious as to WHY you’re asking this?
    We KNOW you’re not planning some big “giveaway.”
    Ego needs stroking, Daniel? LOL!

    Hush. Maybe he IS planning some big giveaway. Don’t rile him. Keep him calm. Ssshhhhhhh. :-)
