2006 Steve Irwin Talking Figure in Package
Manufacturer: Wild Republic
Condition: Mint condition figure in good condition package

CRIKEY! It’s an original talking Steve Irwin figure! Steve died tragically in 2006 while his wildlife adventure series was at the height of popularity. The show hilighted the importance of wildlife and wilderness conservation.
ThIs is a nicely detailed 9″ figure of Steve wearing his classic Aussie outfit, articulated at the arms, elbows, wrists, and legs, and his head swivels. Press either one of the two “pocket buttons” and the figure speaks using Steve’s actual voice. There are two speaking modes: Mode 1 speaks 8 of Steve’s most popular phrases. “We work hard saving endangered animals.” “Goodday I’m Steve Irwin.” “Whatta ripper!” “Crocs rule!” “Danger Danger Danger” Wooeey!” “Crikey!” and “What a beauty!” Mode 2 has Steve narrating an adventure, during which he asks for you to help him choose a direction to take by pressing either pocket 1 or pocket 2. It was very unique interactive action for it’s time! See the video link below. The figure has a clear strong speaking voice, and comes with batteries installed. It can speak without removing from the box.
The package measures 12″ x 6″ x 1 /34″ and is in good shape with some light edge wear. See photo details. It features photos and drawings of Steve and the figurine. This figure has all the original pieces, including the plastic tray insert, instruction sheet, and background cartoon diaorama. The figure was only removed from the package to take photos and video. Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only one available.
