    It's not often I run into something that I've never seen before!

    Did anybody ever have one of these? Is it worth anything? Ebay/google search reveals very little!

    Thank in advance for any info.

    i have seen it before, back in the day i had a choice of this or the set of Transformers walkie talkies....and like a dumbass i choose the walkie talkies....it is a AM radio thingy that you can set to a blank frequency and use your microphone to make your voice come out the radio when you tune the radio to that frequency if i remember correctly.....

    I had one of these. It was pretty neat, especially the way you could hide the telescoping antenna for the mic in the included silencer.

    Do you put the gun barrel in your mouth to speak? If so that is messed up.

    Nope, the mic is at the back of the scope attachment point (the silencer could also be mounted as a scope). I'm not sure whether this made me feel like one of Charlie's Angels or like Private Pyle in Full Metal Jacket when I talked into this thing.

    I wonder what the hell happened to mine... I don't remember from when I sold the bulk of my G1 collection five years ago.

    Cool I picked up a loose one of these at a Flea Market over the summer. I couldn't find any information on it. I wasn't sure what it even was. I just knew I had never seen it before.

    picked one up today MIB (MISB? tape is loose, seller said they never took it out to check if it worked) for $40 (they wanted $50). it looks awesome in box IMO, takes me back to 1984.
