Talking Hall of Fame Duke in 1993 Hasbro Dealer Catalog
The Hall of Fame talking Duke was pretty impressive for its day. Although sound chip toys were all over during the 90s, most didn’t offer the kind of randomization feature included with this figure. Hasbro must have been quite confident in its potential as is featured a full page spread in the 1993 catalog. They hooked me with the toy, as it was not only a nicely playable little bit of tech, it also gave us collectors a Duke outfitted in something other than desert camo.
