Topic: Frank Marshall Question
Message: Posted by: ACE19 (May 15, 2009 02:34PM)
I was wondering who knows of a figure maker that can make a figure in the style of Frank Marshall?

Dan Willinger was offering a very good Marshall style figure. He worked with a couple of figure makers to produce a first rate Marshall reproduction. Check Ventriloquist Central on the web. Also, Conrad Hartz produces some great classic figures in a style reminiscent of Marshall, but still his own style. He's one of the best figure makers working today.

Dear Ace 9,

You will see a photo of my Frank Marshall Tribute figure, made by Glen Rappold.

I a very please with this model and it is relatively affordable, when compared to most of the other Frank Marshall look-alikes out there.

Glen is a pleasure to deal with.

This is the link to the Frank Marshall which I have offered for sale. I have one more remaining and it is an exact Marshall.

With all due respect...I think Mr Rappold's Marshall tribute only pertains to the paint job :) The head cast is not Marshall at all but a very nice head cast from Mr Mike Brose.

If you want a Marhsall replica...go to Dan Willinger :)

I built Henry from a Mike Brose kit because it has that classic (Marshall-esque) look, and it was affordable, plus I could have at least some of my own touch on the finished character. I'm very pleased with the kit and what I was able to do with it... BUT, Henry isn't a Marshall reproduction. If you want the next best thing to an actual Marshall, Dan Willinger has as close as you can get. I have to ask though Ace, are you a collector or is this going to be a working figure. I'm wondering because nobody but another vent is going to care if it's an expensive replica or a more affordable figure in a classic style. If he's just for performing, Jonathan's right, Glenn Rappold offers a nice figure at a reasonable price. You're not telling us much here Ace, except you're looking for a Mack and a Marshall.
