I was very excited to acquire another very rare
and early Rene figure and wanted to share him with you.
Rene's figures today are made of neoprene with a molded head stick
but back in the late 1960's and early 1970's he used wood for the
head stick and also used plastic wood. This figure is one of those
early styles. It was on ebay and I was an under bidder and it went
to Las Vegas, then it was resold and went to Florida and then it was
resold again to me and is now a part of the Ventriloquist Central
This figure stands 40" tall has slot jaw and side to side self
centering eyes. and is still dressed in the original clothing. I
really like him because he has that marionette look even though he
is a ventriloquist figure. Simply a great character.
