Talking Command Console

R ember how cool it was when your Mom and Dad brought home your Talking Command Console? Or how neat it was to let Talking Matt Mason drop down his line as his talking back pack reported “Mission Accomplished. Returning to ship.”?

Now you can enjoy hearing those sounds again. We've gathered the best available recordings of both these toys and made them available here on the web site. You can download them to use on your computer. Many collectors have programmed computer sound chips with these files to repair their old toys!

Hey folks,

My friend Bill Ystrom from Chicago has turned up a talking back pak that speaks Italian. It has 5 sayings as the american version. Probably says an Italian variation of the same voice commands.

Bill has a friend that speaks Italian but he says the dialect is not what he's used to. It was probably targeted to the most dominate Italian dialects such as Rome. He also feels that the person was an Italian actor that was trying to act like an astronaut would. So there is no telling what version of Italian this is.

Perhaps someone will find this and be able to help us out with a translation. Anyhow this will tell us that these toys trully were marketed in foreign lands not only in print but in audio as well.

We've attached wav files of each of the 5 voice commands.
