Great collection. If I'm not mistaken, I saw at least two Macks, a few Selbergs, a Davenport/Insull, Bill Nelson, etc. Those alone mean HUGE bucks!

Not just Selbergs but custom made Selbergs :) They turned Max to Frankenstein :) and the other one is an Olaf (I think)

He'd have to be rich to have more figures than you, Wanlu. :)
Seriously, that was an interesting story.

Shame the Insull has been repainted, or at least re touched.

A nice video. Good find Wanlu!

Very nice collection. I dunno, there is something about these guys that own 20,30, or more figures. How many are you ever really going to use? The rest sit around collecting dust.(I guess that why they call them a collection) Just my opinion.

Yup...its a collection ;)

The main difference between performers and collectors, collectors earn money to buy figures...performers buy figures to earn money :)

Well, personally as a performer, I keep what I use all the time and sell the stuff I don't use all the time :)

How about if he is a performer and collector?
He is a good ventriloquist and have a lot of nice figures & memorabilia!

One thing for sure... this guy is no dummy! (arrghhh!!! :rolleyes: )

His collection is simply amazing and boogles both the mind and the wallet.

I meant "Boggles", but it "boogles the mind" too! lol :dizzy:

The report did say that he is both a performer and a collector :)

But there are performers who are not collectors...and collectors who are not performers :)

:idea:
Hmmm....Perhaps it is the vent figure's that are collecting ventriloquists?

Or at least trying new Ventriloquist's out --in the case of second-hand figures that are sold. :rolleyes:
