“Mutants, and aliens, and toads beware!” Captain Bucky O’Hare is making a comeback. Comic book legend Neal Adams has previously indicated that he’s working on a Bucky O’Hare feature film, but in the meantime, Boss Fight Studio is bringing Bucky and his crew home in the form of a new action figure line.
Via Figures.com, Boss Fight Studio announced that it will produce “highly-articulated 4″+ scale, collectible toys of Bucky O’Hare, his S.P.A.C.E. allies and Toad enemies!” There aren’t any prototype figures to show off yet, but given that the following promo art from Boss Fight Studio features Blinky the android, Bucky, and Deadeye Duck, they seem like the logical choices for the first wave.
Most of our readers may be understandably wondering who Bucky O’Hare is, and what the comic was about. Back in 1984, Adams’ Continuity Studios published the Bucky O’Hare comic book series, created by Larry Hama and Michael Golden. The comic chronicled the title character’s quest to overthrow an evil empire of toads in their alternate universe. Bucky’s crew included the previously mentioned Deadeye and Blinky, as well as a cat named Jenny, a baboon called Bruiser, and Willie DuWitt, a young boy from Earth who was inadvertently stranded in the Aniverse.
In 1991, there was a short-lived Bucky O’Hare animated series, which had a pretty catchy theme song that also explained the premise of the show.
Hasbro actually made a line of Bucky O’Hare action figures based on this show, but canceled the second and third wave of figures. Hopefully Boss Fight Studio will be able to complete the crew with its new figures.
