In a recent press release, indie toy design company Boss Fight Studio shed some light on their revival of the semi-obscure sci-fi series, Bucky O’Hare. While most remember Bucky and his space comrades (Jenny, Willy DuWitt, Deadeye Duck, Blinky, Bruiser) from their short-lived animated series and subsequent toy line, their struggles against the Toad Empire actually began back in the mid-80s as a comic book created by Larry Hama and Michael Golden.
While the series has received an occasional pop culture shout-out, it’s primarily lain dormant for decades…until now, that is. Much like October Toys’ brought back Skeleton Warriors, it seems that Boss Fight Studios has their sights set on a 4″ scale lineup of action figures scheduled for later this year:
Boss Fight Studio has teamed up with Neal Adams’ Continuity Studios to celebrate the hero who goes where no ordinary rabbit would dare!
The upstart toy company will be producing highly-articulated collectible toys of Bucky O’Hare, his S.P.A.C.E. allies, and Toad enemies! Created by Larry Hama and Michael Golden, Bucky O’Hare tells the story of a brave band of mammal freedom fighters trying to save The Aniverse from the all-conquering Toad Empire. As part of a special gallery show at Continuity Studios’ New York headquarters, showcasing collectibles and the classic comic art that inspired them, Boss Fight is giving the public a first look at the new product line with a prototype of Bucky O’Hare. This all new figure features spectacular detail, super articulation, interchangeable hands and faces and his trusty automatic, self-cleaning laser pistols. Bucky is on display alongside Golden’s original graphic novel cover art!
The Bucky O’Hare product line is planned to be offered for preorder in late Spring of 2017. As they did with Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S., Boss Fight Studio will be sharing regular in-progress updates with fans via social media outlets.
Drawing from the original comics, animation and more, this is sure to be a dynamic and KOMPLEX collection!
