  • Talker mechanism types

    I took apart old talkers from the junk box. You can see on the left what appears to be an older talk box. On the right is what appears to be a newer style. Weird! I didn't realize there were any variations, or generations of talk boxes between the pull string and electronic types! Anybody got INTEL on these?

    Wait until you run across one that is rainbow colored! (The do exist) I think later in the AT run when they molded the parts they just used whatever plastic that was loaded n the hopper, since the talk box is not seen. Earlier ones are olive drab for the most part.

    Talk boxes on figures:

    SOLDIER (also used for MOA)
    SAILOR
    MARINE
    PILOT
    ASTRONAUT (same unit for PH and Flocked version)
    COMMANDER
    MUSCLE BODY COMMANDER

    The two versions of the Talking Commander different phrases;

        Are the muscle body talkers like the vintage Action Man talkers? I have a vintage Action Man that I need to get the talker box to work. But I don't know anyone that works on them.
