On another note, we received an email from actor, writer, ventriloquist figure maker, Robert McRay and he wanted us to post this for everyone:

I am sending this email because I have been holding a “silent auction” for an upcoming BIGHEAD mechanical sculpture. While these auctions are usually intended for the high end art collector (because of their price range), I have received bids from performers as well. I certainly don’t want the vent community to feel excluded in any way, as I am extremely honored that some of my creations have been used by professional performers. As you well know, the art of ventriloquism has always been close to my heart.

I would like to respectfully submit the invitation to your visitors that they are more than welcome to participate, should such a thing be of interest to them.

Thank you for our time and I do appreciate the email updates to “Ventriloquist Central”.

Keep up the wonderful work!

All the best,


Thank YOU, Robert for sharing with us at Ventriloquist Central.

    My 87 year old father in North Carolina has a Pinxy dummy from the 1930’s that looks a lot like the one in your video, although it does not have the leather jaw you spoke of. “Willie McGregor” enjoyed a good life with my Dad, serving with him in the Navy during WWII and having his own uniform. My Dad is interested in selling Willie but I didn’t want to put such a great little guy out there on ebay. How do I go about selling him?
    Thanks so much for your help,
    Elaine Trakas
