Going thru some older photos I used to take of my collection I came across this one. Years Ago there were 2 custom made animation reference figures made for the Hostess Company that were for sale. Some of you might have seen the Giant Twinkie the Kid figure which has been in a few of the Adverting Figures collector books. I missed getting that one but I did get this one of Captain Cupcake. The piece was made of some sort of resin/modeling clay and had a material and paper outfit and hat. The piece was about 10 inches tall and could stand on its own. I kept it for a while but at one point I decided not to keep figures made of cloth ( pillow Dolls) and the Captain was also one I ended up selling. I have yet to see anything else turn up like it so my guess is he was a one of a kind piece.
I am still looking for a Twinkie the Kid statue, that one looked like it was made from a mold and not a handmde piece.
Thanks for dropping by the ranch have a great day.
