Jason has been instructed by the goddess  Hera that he may resupply his ship at Crete but otherwise not touch anything on the island.  Having scattered to search for wild goats and fresh water, two of the men, Hercules and his friend Hylas, come to a valley where Hephaestus erected statues of the gods, each standing on a high pedestal.  The pedestal for Talos turns out to be the treasury of the gods.  Hercules finds a gold pin the size of a javelin and decides to make it his own despite Hylas's begging him to leave everything untouched. This awakens the statue of Talos. 

Ray Harryhausen said he made Talos the size of the Colossus of Rhodes in order to have him stand astride the bay exit during the escape scene, but in Apollonius Rhodios's Argonautica he's only eight feet tall.
