Boss Fight Studio Bucky O’Hare Corsair Canard Deadeye Duck Exclusive!
Deadeye Duck is back in this exclusive variant by Boss Fight Studio!
We unboxed the Bucky O’Hare Exclusive Corsair Canard Deadeye Duck with Lunch Box by Boss Fight Studio in today’s video unboxing and he’s fantastic! Deadeye Duck was the third member of the Righteous Indignation to be added to this line, with this particular figure being a special exclusive variant of the base figure. Previously we unboxed the Bucky O’Hare and First Mate Jenny action figures from the line which quickly became two of our favorite figures of 2017. This version was an exclusive preorder with Big Bad Toy Store but now can be purchased directly from the Boss Fight Studio Shop. Deadeye preorders will be shipping this Fall 2018.
Who is Deadeye Duck? Why am I so excited?
Deadeye Duck is the gunner for the space frigate “The Righteous Indignation” under the command of Captain Bucky O’Hare. Deadeye was a space pirate with the Corsair Canards (hence the variant name) before enlisting in S.P.A.C.E when the Toad Empire began its attacks. Deadeye is quick to temper and likes to let his laser pistols make his point, but he’s also a loyal and dependable crew member.
Deadeye Duck was my favorite character from the 90s cartoon “Bucky O’Hare and the Toad Wars” so when Boss Fight Studio asked if we’d like to have an early look at the figure I was OVER THE MOON! As admitted in the past on our YouTube channel, I gave out Bucky O’Hare Valentine’s in elementary school. I gave all the Deadeye Duck valentines to the girls “I liked most”. Embarrassing and possibly somewhat adorable confession? Yes, but now you know just how much I loved Deadeye Duck in my childhood.
Exclusive Bucky O’Hare Collector’s Lunch Box Tin
Instead of the collector-friendly card-backs these figures usually come in, this exclusive comes packaged in a gorgeous tin lunch box that will bring you right back to the 90’s cartoon. The artwork is stunning, capturing the feel of the comics and matches the aesthetic of the card art for the regular line of figures perfectly. The characters look wonderful and the colors really pop. It’s like we’ve traveled back in time to the moment the lunch bell rang at school 20 years ago.
The front of the tin is adorned with a group shot of most of the Righteous Indignation crew with Captain Bucky O’Hare front and center. Bucky looks exactly like he did on the Konami NES game cover art in the 90s so that should give retro gaming fans like myself a little smile as well. The Righteous Indignation itself makes an appearance on the reverse side, and a collage of the Toads along the edges with other space pirates in bubbles. This make an awesome display piece all its own!
Boss Fight Studio Corsair Canard Exclusive Deadeye Duck Action Figure
Deadeye’s figure itself is the same mold as the base Deadeye Duck with an updated paint job that just screams “90’s cartoon”. Instead of his usual red and orange, Deadeye is clad in purple and bright, neon green. The late 80s and early 90s were all about neon. It was everywhere! So I think this is a really cool color scheme.
The front side of Deadeye has his signature belt and strap getup adorned with pegs to hold his guns (we’ll get to those). He is the crew’s gunner and a laser pistol wielder after all. There is plenty of detail on from hat and headphones to his cuffs and elbow pads and all the way down to his knee pads and boots. Just how does he get those huge feet into those boots anyway? Cartoon logic. We’ll never know!
On the reverse side he has is tail sticking out which his belt wraps around and a bunch more of those pegs for holding his guns. You can make him a one duck wrecking crew. He can go full Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando if you want him to!
Deadeye Duck’s abundance of accessories
This exclusive Deadeye also comes with a ton of accessories. Boss Fight Studio did not skimp here at all. They gave us plenty to play around with and multiple weapon color schemes. Deadeye comes with a full set of 4 purple laser pistols but they actually made them in 3 different molds instead of just 4 basic pistols. 2 are a standard laser pistol, one looks like a silenced or longer range version and the final one looks like a futuristic ray gun type of weapon. Whatever they happen to be, it’s nice that they aren’t all just the same stock accessory multiplied. They also offer the same 4 accessories in an army green color and the 2 laser pistols in orange. You can color swap how you wish!
You can achieve multiple expressions for Deadeye as well with three interchangeable beaks to capture the expression you want. A closed mouth, smirking mouth and an angry duck bill round out the options.
He comes with a multitude of hands too which is great because he has 4 arms! 4 hands are for holding his pistols but he also comes with an action pose hand, a closed fist, and a thumbs up which is just awesome! Finally he has a hand that is holding a piece of chalk as Deadeye likes to tally the toad ships he takes down with a piece of chalk. (Thank you to a viewer for that quick refresher).
I have to let you guys know just how easy these parts are to swap as well. I’ve had plenty of stiffness and trouble with swapping parts in many action figures in the past, often having to resort to the warm water trick to get them apart for pictures. Boss Fight Studio have made it tremendously easy. The parts aren’t stiff and pop right out and back into place with very little effort at all while not feeling loose like they would come apart. I genuinely appreciate that little bit of extra machining more than you could imagine.
Deadeye is highly articulate.
As seen with the Bucky and Jenny figures in our previous video, Boss Fight Studio decided to make these figures highly articulate. Deadeye is no exception. HE’S GOT FOUR ARMS!!! Of course they had to utilize that feature of his. You can get Deadeye into so many cool poses thanks to his unique four armed concept. Add this with the amount of hand options mention above and there’s no end to the posing fun. If you run an action figure Instagram account or just love toy photography in general, you are going to have an absolute blast with this figure.
Boss Fight Studio’s Bucky O’Hare line keeps impressing!
The Bucky O’Hare crew continues to grow with these amazing figures from Boss Fight Studio, and we can’t say enough good things about them. Deadeye is a welcome addition in any form from his base figure to his exclusives. If you are a fan of the show or comic, a toy enthusiast, or just an action figure lover in general, then any version Boss Fight has done of this character you are going to love. If you loved the show, or even just 90’s cartoons in general, you WILL LOVE these figures.
I am so happy to have these in my collection. They bring back a ton of nostalgia while giving the characters a polished modern action figure look. Comparing these to the old Hasbro line of figures in the 90s shows you just how much love went into updating these classic characters for the collector market today. These are figures that should make all modern and retro toy nerds happy and I can’t wait to see what Boss Fight Studio throws at us next. Their figures are top-notch, quality, and made with both passion and respect for the license. I can not recommend this company enough. Please go check them out and let them know what an amazing job they are doing. They deserve it!
