Ventriloquist Mike Robinson Visits The Ventriloquist Central Collection

Ventriloquist Mike Robinson & Terrance


I always smile when I get the call from Mike Robinson letting me know his ship has docked in Boston. I ran into Boston and picked him up to come for a visit.

This time Mike surprised me because he had his case with him when I found him. He said after we eat breakfast and he gets a haircut then we would go back to my house and he would reveal to me the figure he had in the case. I was sooooo excited.

Once back here I could not wait and he opened his case to reveal one of the finest figures I have scene to date by a modern maker. This is Mike’s new figure Terrance made by the very talented Lee Dunn. Lee’s first figure is in the Ventriloquist Central Collection and you can see him here.

This new Terrance is a McElroy style figure with multi function such as: Slot Jaw, Upper Lip, moving eyes, winker, blinkers, raising eyebrows and wiggling ears and stick out tongue. His head stick has the McElroy style box and also the McElroy style cradle. Simply a marvelous work of art and functionality.

I told Mike any time he is tired of Terrance and wants to retire him he is welcome at the Ventriloquist Central Collection.
