With all the figure makers out and about these days, I don’t think there is a figure maker more creative then Bill Nelson. Together with Dan Lavander the two make some of the best looking figures with some of the Most ingenious mechanics that you will ever see. Bill and Dan are like the modern day McElroy Brothers! Take a look at some of there figures at: http://www.dlavender.com/
"Figures made by a performing Ventriloquist, for the performing Ventriloquist!"
"My new vent figure created by Mike Palma arrived today. All I can say is...wow! His controls are smooth as butter, the paint job is incredible and his grouchiness is a given! Mike, you did an outstanding job on this guy. I can't wait to get him into show business...need to get a name first! Thank you!"
"Mike, my 'Hipster' arrived today and I've been able to get it adjusted and use it with a couple of the characters. I can tell it is going to be a GREAT addition to my "roving" sets. It's also very cool to see that it can be attached to a mic stand. This a a wonderfully versatile piece of staging equipment. Thanks for the quick service."
Rick Jenkins, 'Rick the Roving Ventriloquist'
I've been a professional ventriloquist for over 15 years. During that time, I've owned or used ventriloquist figures made by just about every pro maker in the business. I have several very high quality figures in my collection. Mike's figures are up there with the best I've seen. His style is classic yet original and his mechanics, details and paint jobs are top notch. I highly recommend his figures to anyone who wants a high quality figure for their collection or to use in regular performance."
