I've been working on several full size figures. One was for a customer in Canada and the other for a gentleman in Italy. The older fellow will be going to Europe.

The younger one is for sale. He is available to anyone who wants him for 450 dollars. a great deal for a full size figure. He is about 40 inches tall.

Here are some stages of each figure.

Hope everyone had a great memorial day. As always, if you need help with figure making or ventriloquism or you want a look alike figure or one made to your specifications contact me at I answer all emails!

More Jimmy LightShow

Here are some more of Jimmys figures. I am finall finished Jimmy, sorry about the wait.

He sent me this beat up old head from a 1980's Jerry Lane dummy. The orange haired guy is what I created. Here are your beards and your repaired head. If you only knew what i had to go through to make them. Elkton and Delaware don't seem to have fun fur this color anywhere. I had to kake the beards from clown poms. The kind you glue on to fabric. I dismantled them and glued them on in strands to a "beard pattern" I made, then added the velcro. I noticed that I had to seperated the mustache from the beard as well so the mouth would move. You have a purple one, a red one and a green one.

Here are your twins. They don't look the same anymore.

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day! Semper Fi!!!! As always, If I can help anyone with figure making or ventriloquism problems,or you would like a custom figure made, contact me at

Hello everyone. The challenge of looking for another job with benefits is getting weary.

Seems like half our county is out of work! Since the newspaper businesses aren't looking for help (they are all closing) I am getting back into manufacturing management. I have about 20 years of experience in that field so something will come along. (I pray)

Anyway, Jimmy Lightshow has sent some more figures for new looks and wig sets. He also asked me to give them crossing eyes. Here is one of them. I gave him bigger lips, ears and a wideer nose. The other one I gave buck teeth. I also took an old beat up Layne figure and gave him a completely new look as well as crossing eyes. Jimmy is a talented vent entertainer in Canada and someone I feel lucky to call a friend. Here are some pics Jimmy. They'll be packed on Monday and enroute to Canada. Thanks!

Hello again...

Been awhile since I posted a blog. I have been very busy. Working in the shop, filling orders and looking for a new job. Yes, I am one of many Americans in the newspaper business who has lost his job due to the internet. Why buy a paper when you can read it on line? So at 50 plus, I will be embarking on a new career. I will always make vent figures. Thats my passion. Unfortunately, Gepetto doesn't have any insurance which at our age we desperately need.

So much for me. I have filled the store again with discounted prices which you will not see anywhere else. My prices are lower than anyones and i guarantee my work. All springs, pulleys, brass and triple braided cord are used in making them so they last. Enjoy these prices for the summer, because they will go back up again in the fall.

Here are a couple of guys in my store right now. As always, If I can help anyone with anything pertaining to figure making or ventriloquism, email me anytime at and visit my store on ebay or

have a great day!
