Simply The Best Gift!

This little guy is one of two figures given to me by my good friend Ron Crowe (Musician/ Builder/ Writer)

The figures are named "Ron and Ronnie"and they are two of the most unique figures in the collection.

The tops of their heads are made of plastic wood and the mouth area is a flexible material and their body are

fully articulated and can be controlled by strings and cable.



Transformation of My First Restore "India"

India was my first restore/ remake project and the first pro vent I purchased.

I got her for around 100 dollars on ebay. 

She was missing the back of her head, headstick wasn't fully attached, animations did not work and there was no body and not in the best shape.

I originally was going to keep her "as is" being totally new and nervous but after consulting with multiple friends and authorities

in the business I was assured that due to her condition it was ok to give her new life since the intention was for her to perform again.

India cemented my love and respect for the restoration process.

Now my preference is for older figures to stay "As Is" with the exception of those in pieces or where restoration is needed to prevent further deterioration.
