The Diamond Select Toys Wrath of Khan communicator, designed by Art Asylum, features flashing lights and phrases from Admiral Kirk, Spock, Khan and Uhura, as well as the authentic communicator chirp sound effects. There are three modes: Voice Clip Mode, Screaming Kirk Mode, and Hail/Call-Back function. The communicator chirps when Communicator is opened or closed. The TWOK communicator will be released in November and is available now for pre-order at Entertainment Earth for $37.99.

Star Trek II was a return to the flip open style from the original Star Trek, after switching to the wrist style communicator in Star Trek The Motion Picture. The silver TWOK communicator can be seen most prominently in the genesis cave scene in Wrath of Khan.
The TWOK communicator is a companion piece to the Star Trek II phaser, released late 2009, along with the similar Motion Picture phaser (which was an EE exclusive). The TMP version is the same shape, but the sticker and sounds are different. Both are available now at EE.
