Talking Commander 1977. Alan Halls books states that this was released in 1977 as the catalogue numbers places its release after the Indian Brave but
This box was printed to include the details that the figure had now been downgraded to "5 random sayings"
The five Random sayings were

Enemy Tanks Approaching
Send out the patrol
Give me some cover
Advance in Single file
Whats the password

but as you can see in Alan Halls Book Volume 2 they forgot to mention the new dynamic physique that came with the change of voice box so i personally think the box featured in this book was a salesman sample and it was held back from release until 1979 when they announced the release of the new dynamic figure and resorted to using the sticker method to update the box. The figure shown above this box in Alan Hall's book is the field commander and NOT the Talking Commander and I have never seen this box anywhere else but Alan Halls Book. If anyone does have this box then it would be great to hear from you



1979 Talking Commander with New Dynamic Physique. This figure although pictured with a Revolver was actually issued with a Colt 45 Pistol. The map case and map was included when i bought mine and there is a rumour that it was issued with one but again that is to be proved. This box with the sticker attached would in my opinion be used up until all of those boxes were depleted and then was replaced with a new box with new artwork depicting the dynamic physique and this was to come later in the year after the release of the Soldier, Adventurer and Helicopter Pilot.

You will no doubt cover this at some point Dan but if the dynamic physique talking commander was released in 77 how comes they say 75 on the back? Was it because the molds were made WAY before going ahead with release? Just wondered that's all!
