This is a Superior ventriloquist figure that I purchased for my Grandson this past spring as a birthday gift. He is 14 and as with most teenagers he has changed his mind and decided he wants a guitar now.This figure is a tribute to the great American figuremaker, FRANK MARSHALL . These figures are created and available only from Glenn Rappold . MIKE BOSE has helped Glenn with these remarkable creations. He is in MINT condition and has never been performed with and only used a few times for practice. When you open and look inside his mouth t is a label that states " Marshall Tribute Ventriloquist Figure " and is signed by Glenn Rappold. (I am using most of the details that were in the actual listing from when I purchased him from Glenn.) FEATURES : Real Professional FULL size figure approximately 40" tall! BIG Beautiful BLUE eyes. that move side to side and are self-centering . Gorgeous Auburn-ish colored hair .(He looks Irish to me) He has Raising Eyebrows to flirt with and to show surprise. Smooth mouth movements that opens WIDE. He has a Ball and Socket neck for easy turnings and tilting. He has the Marshall "orange style" paint job. Each head is painstakingly hand painted using 4 coats of Artist Grade Acrylics . Shading is done by thickness of the paint and the final coat is lightly stippled for texture and to cut the shine. These figures are made one at a time by Glenn with each having his own charm and personality No two figures are exactly alike! His head and hands are of tough lightweight urethane. He has a wood frame body. He came with a 1 year warranty on the mechanics. (I purchased him on April 23,2007.) The controls are set up for right hand use. He comes with a brand new pair of dress shoes that we added. He is a cute and lovable dude and can be made up to be the kind/type of buddy you desire. He wears approx. a size 4 toddler, so clothes styles are numerous! I could not have been more pleased with my purchase and was delighted that he arrived true to his description. Glenn is an excellent seller and a credit to ebay! If you have any questions please ask prior to bidding. Shipping fees are approximate and may vary upon final destination.
