  • Ripper Figure

    I went to he Memorabilia Fair (and ComicCon) at the Birmingham NEC. A big change since I last went 15 years ago. Previously there had been loads of DVD and booksellers, some classic old memorabilia and even a Laurel And Hardy stall. Nothing of that on show these days unfortunately. Far too many adults interested in buying fluffy Japanese crap and plenty of child level cartoon artwork. I spotted this though.....and no I didn’t buy it.

    “ I wish that I could have achieved half as much as Herlock.”- Neil Armstrong.
    “ What a voice Herlock has.” - Luciano Pavarotti.
    “ I wish that I could dump Harry for Herlock.” - Meghan Markle.

    Wouldn't buy it myself, but strangely not as tacky as I'd expected. But, the real question, who's it based on? We've got a leather apron, a BillyCock hat, broad shoulders? Wouldn't be of interest to Royal Conspiracy Theorists though.
    Them's the vagaries.

      Hang on a minute Herlock! That's clearly Hanbury St, and from the position of the killer, you can clearly see that there's no way he wasn't on Annie's right hand side! So he couldn't have hit the fence! My God, Fishy was right!

        If you're looking for figurines, don't forget Foundry's Ripper collection: https://www.wargamesfoundry.com/coll...pers-pre-order

        Check out their Victorians/Edwardians line for such indispensible characters as the Ladies of the Night, the Armed Ladies of the Night, the Ne'er Do Wells and the Police Constables on Penny Farthings!

          Not broad shouldered, and no blotches.

          I think it's probably a fake.

              Here is a box, a musical box, wound up and ready to play. But this box can hide a secret inside - can you guess what is in it today?.....It's Jack the Ripper. Hallo, Jack. Been out ripping again?

                Much more accurate than I was expecting. Any Ripper depiction without a top hat is good enough for me.
