    I love Johnny Main’s figures, he had a distinctive look to all his figures, large eyes, clean lines that carry very well. Also most of his figures didn’t have a lot of unnecessary movements. He was a great performer, and like Bergen could bring the figure to life without all sorts of moving facial features.

    Johnny Main was around Frank Marshall so very much one can see why Gertie is a very fine lady figure.
