As you may recall, last year I posted that I was on the lookout for a Kurt Adler Santa Claus decorations from the 1990s. The reason I wanted it was that it was basically an action figure (you can read a review of it here).
Since that day last December, I had a saved search on eBay for it. For months and months, nothing came up as a result for “talking santa adler” except an auction for an 8×10″ hand-color tinted photograph of J. Robert Oppenheimer (I’m 100% serious).
Finally, this past September, I got not one but two results. On the same day! One was missing his sack, but the other was complete and soon, finally, Santa Claus was mine.
There’s not a whole lot to say about the figure–he’s articulated at the shoulders and waist and says three phrases. The voice actually comes out pretty loud and clear, and whoever they got to do the voice does a pretty good Santa. Kind of sounds like the Santa from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
In the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to gift you with MP3 files of his phrases, because why not?
