Talking Action Soldier
The pull string talker mechanism for GI Joe debuted in 1967, with a talker for each service. Test marketing found the voice hard to understand, so the box was redesigned to be wider so an insert with the commands could be included. They were added to the side panel art as well. These figures show up with both tall brown and short black boots (Hasbro #7590). Hear his commands by playing the audio clip above!
