Product Description

No programming required. Just add audio and this talking skull will come to life, moving it's mouth, head, and eyes as if it had risen from the dead.

Real-Time Mouth Control

The PicoTalk included inside the talking skull listens carefully to the audio and moves the servo in sync to make the character look like it’s doing the talking. No programming or specially encoded audio track required.


Moving LED Eyes

Does your current skull have staring problems? These skulls come with eyes that randomly look around, moving occasionally when the skull is quiet, and frequently when it's talking.

The LED eyes can be set to stay on, throb to the voice, or fade on when the character talks and out when it stops.


Head Turn

New for 2014 is the head-turn option. Like the moving eyes, the head will turn occasionally as the character talks. It's random, but it's smart about it, moving the eyes and head in the same direction so it looks natural.

The speed and amount of head-turn is completely adjustable.


Custom Skull Design

This is not a standard Bucky skull. Our skulls have been reworked to allow a clean installation of the internal hardware. And at almost one quarter the weight of the competition, these skulls are easier on the servos, and easier for you to install.

For skulls without head-turn, there's a mounting hole in the skull's center plate so it can be easily secured to a 3/8" threaded rod. For the skulls with head-turn, there's a 5/16" coupling a few inches below the center of the skull.


No Lonely Skeletons

Were you an only child? Did you grow up lonely and alone? Don't let your talking skull endure the same pain - buy two! You can craft a stereo audio track with one voice in each channel so they can chat, talk, or argue.

    Basic talking skull

    Posted by Bart on 2021 Oct 10th

    It is cooler than I thought it would be and also normal adult size which is nice since so many skulls are on the small side. It has nice weight and great details. I don't need to do anything to improve the appearance. It worked well with just an old iPod to drive it (volume limits adjusted on iPod for maximum playback volume). I was able to mount it on a 3/8" rod however I had to remove one screw from the controller to do that as the audio input was directly in line with where the rod comes through leaving no room for the audio plug. I would have preferred the controller would have been mounted a bit differently to avoid this however it doesn't change any of the operation to move it a bit after removing one screw. Adjusting the brightness of the eyes, eye movement and sound sensitivity was easy and I quickly had it operating nicely for my needs.
