It was supposed to be the highlight of the Elvis Souvenirs 2007, but it seems that nobody is interested in the Talking Elvis Heads.

The price for the life-size head on life-size torso clad in black leather with yellow eyes and a vacuous, faraway look, has dropped again.

According to the News & Observer Online, this talking head with a mechanically moving mouth – quote “that looked as if it had been synchronized by the sound crew from the old Godzilla flicks” – unquote – dropped from $399 to $ 299.

Conclusion of the Observer’s article: “There were plenty left a week ago Saturday. We're guessing there are plenty left today.”

It's a piece of crap.

I saw it in the shops at Graceland in August and had a good laugh. Not only does it not look like Elvis, but seriously who would want such a ghastly object!

It never should be allowed on the market in the first place. I guess they know now it was a dud.:D

Yeah, big surprise! ;)

Sillerman ought to hang his head in shame, as should Lisa and Cilla, and anyone associated with this abomination.

(y)(y)(y)(y) There are alot of things associated with EPE and Graceland that Cilla and Lisa should be ashamed of......an "Elvis" trash can?? It gives the anti-Elvis crowd a field day.(n)

I don't think Lisa has any say on the merchandising EPE does anymore Jen. She doesn't own much of it anymore.....what l5% so she can be easily overruled?

This thing crept me out the first time I seen it popped out on the scene. It is one Elvis related gift I do not want this Christmas. If they could make tiny little ken dolls look like Elvis you would think they could have done a much better job than they did!

exactly! it makes him look like a joke, this is how his reputation gets ruined because of stupid crap like this....some things they make are just ridiculous and makes him look cheap.

I saw it during Elvis week in one of the souvenir shops and it looked really terrible. It didn't even look like Elvis. It was really bad.

It is creepy.
When i was in memphis last August i saw this "thing" for real.
I have only two words for it: UGLY and CREEPY.
They dropped the prize, but even if they give it away for free, i surely don't want to have a "thing" like this. :nono::nono:

I would personally prefer a more "traditional" Elvis gift for Christmas.

I agree!
They could drop the price to a dollar and I wouldn't buy it.
Who ok'd this item anyway? What happened to getting rid of the independent shops across Graceland because they sold "tacky" souvenirs? LOL EPE in particular took offense to a trash can, but folks if you look at their merchandise not only do they sell trash cans but they are for the BATHROOM!

You are right Suzan! (y) When I got the latest catalog from them I was amazed at some of the TACKY stuff that they were selling. (n) I can't believe that Lisa doesn't pay attention to some of this stuff, this gives the anti-Elvis crowd loads of ammunition. ;)

Hola woman! I'm on chat :D (MSN)
Yes I know, I just shake my head at some of the items both in the catalog and online. I guess they forgot the reason they got rid of those shops? Actually they are selling exactly what the independent's were...
Maybe she does? But it generates money and who knows what they tell her you know? They may make it sound way better to her then what comes out.
