He's the straight-talking neighbor who helped rescue Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight who has gone on to international fame.  Now he's been immortalized with a statue.

From the first moments Charles Ramsey told his story to the media, he became a star.

Now he's hosting a series of events where people will get the chance to meet the man that has been called the hero of Seymour Avenue.

Ramsey talked about his story and how he helped the women escape at an event hosted by a law firm in Kentucky today. 

The law firm also unveiled a bust of Ramsey. When the statue was unveiled, Ramsey seemed genuinely stunned.  He said you usually don't "get one of these things until your demise."

When asked if he thought ever thought he would be the subject of a statue, he said "Only in Play-Doh."

Ramsey says when he gets back to Cleveland, he plans to have a talk with Mayor Frank Jackson about putting it in a place where everyone can see it.

In the weeks since the rescue, Ramsey has been the subject of a an action figure, songs and even a video game.

The animation from a Taiwanese company depicts Ramsey and the man charged in the women's abductions as throwing hamburgers at one another. Ramsey was eating a McDonald's hamburger when he went to help the women.

He issued the following statment on the video game from today's event:

"I want everyone to know that I have nothing to do with this trash," said Ramsey. Ramsey also wants everyone to know that he does not endorse the consortium of Northeast Ohio restaurants who are offering "Ramsey Burgers" or who are promoting that Ramsey can receive free burgers from them for life. Ramsey said "I never told these people they could use my name for this." At this time, Ramsey has not authorized any merchandise and he has no web site or social media accounts. Ramsey encourages people to do things that will help the victims."
