My latest addition, a Navajo Code Talker.

In the South Pacific part of WWII, the Japanese were excellent code breakers. The Navajo language
wasn't exactly code, basically phonetic and a bit complicated, but there were no known written forms
existing. Starting with two, by the end of the war there were 400 active Navajo "Code Talkers." After
the war they were discharged with no fanfare, and told to keep the code a secret. In 1969, the code
talkers were first officially recognized for their efforts.

The figure is a talker, by pushing a button on his back. He says seven phrases in the Navajo language,
followed by the english translation. I had thought about getting one of these some years back, and
was able to get this one recently for $18 USD. I'm very happy with the purchase. I hope you like him.

Is an interesting sculpt , I agree with Alex . Sounds like a steal at $18 . Interesting history too . I quite like the later released joes , I always thought that they were what MAM should of been here in England .

Thank you Dal, Alexander and Chip.

I'm glad you like him. I was surprised to get him for the price I did. Especially since when he
was plentiful some years back, he went for about the same price.

I was always intrigued with what he said as a talker. And when I got him and read the back of
the box, I didn't realize that the Navajo language was never written.

It's interesting to hear the language, followed by the english translation.

Daryl

I see you have him as well as you had said in My Navajo Code Breaker topic Laughing That is a really great price for him and worth every cent! He is truly a special Joe figure and one of the most unique to boot. Good pics dude Very Happy
