    I might still have mine, I got it at the Dollar Store.

    I should dig it out and do some Peter Frampton impressions.

    Have one. Haven't really played with it since it was open. :lol  But it sits proudly in my collection with all the other radios.

    All right! I had that as a kid and it was soooo fun! I think it's part of the reason I wanted the Prime helmet so badly. I wore mine out and when I tried to fix it it just fell apart. I think I have the straw and the arms somewhere. Ah, memories...thanks, man!

    I've got one... never used it or tried to. Just a nice piece of Ultra Magnusology. Only thing I'm missing is the tube. But Alphie said it's pretty easy to improvise.

    I was hoping they would do a redecoration of the Optimus Prime/Cullen helmet so you can wear the Ultra Magnus head and hear phrases like "I can't deal with that right now" delivered by Robert Stack.

    Sadly, yes. What about the VOA from RID? That's a possibility.

    If I had a Robert Stack voice changer, I would do lines from Airplane! or Unsolved Mysteries

    Found one MOSC 2 years ago in an Asian store. Tried it, it works, but poorly compared to the new voice changer.

    Well, honestly, you can't truly compare it to the new Prime helmet 'cause they operate totally differently. With the Magnus changer, you had to put your mouth around the straw loosely and kind of mouth words while holding down a button versus simply speaking into a mic.

    if you put a small speaker in your mouth and play a buzzing sound through it it sounds the same.

    Yeah...whu'? I think I may know what you're talking about, but on the other hand...I think I'll pass on putting a live electronic component in my mouth.

    That's how the old school (Frampton) talk boxes worked. The guitar signal (or any other sound source) fed into the box, which housed a small speaker connected to a tube/straw. The tube blasted the sound into your mouth, and you used your mouth to shape it, and that "talking" sound got picked up by your microphone. It sounds all robotic and crazy, but in actuality it's really low tech.

    Wow... what a neat revival thread... I'm going to have to put my reply in bullet points:

    1. I picked mine up from Odoruin. Passed on one the same week sealed on the card (eBay).

    2. Didn't know Robert Stack was dead, or maybe I forgot. That might make getting one easier: I'm sure we can use lines from the 86 Movie. I would choose the following lines for the helmet:
    "But Prime, I am just a soldier...I'm not worthy"
    "I can't deal with that right now"
    "Springer: You and Arcee transform Autobot City, Perceptor tell Blaster to radio Prime for reinforcements"
    And maybe this one from the series (even if he didn't voice it there):
    "I've never seen anything this beautiful in the entire galaxy - okay, give me the bomb. "

    Ultra Magnus is one of my favorite characters. I want to focus my collection on him eventrually.
