A Mickey Mouse Talk-Back Talking Computer Prototype?

A few months ago, I came across a Mickey Mouse Talk-Back Talking Computer at a local Flea Market. They wanted ten bucks for it and assured me that it worked, but since it was missing its removable Mickey I passed on it. Since then I have been looking online for one, trying to get an idea of how much I should pay for one if I spot one in the future.

While doing so I came across this image from a magazine that showed what looks like a slightly early incarnation of the Talking Computer. It got me wondering if this is a prototype or if they actually released this version of it? Anyone seen this version before?
