Palitoy Talking R2 D2

I love it when I get a new catalog and discover something I'd never heard of. Take this Talking R2 D2 by Palitoy of the UK (Same folks who made this) . I automatically assumed it never got made but was happy to find this on Ebay.

It's kind of rare to find mint boxed but I did notice this kind soul put up a youtube video of how he sounds. What a neat toy!

Interesting find! In the US, the same molds were used for the R2 unit that was part of the 12" figure line. The major difference was the US version did not have the talking cassette feature. Instead the space inside was used to store two large plastic sheets which were supposed to be the secret plans to the Death Star.
