Bucky O'Hare Action Figures and Vehicles: Wave 2
The second wave of Bucky O'Hare toys was to include seven new action figures, three vehicles, and one large vehicle playset. Many of these toys made it past the design stage, and some even exist as packaged prototypes. Unfortunately, they never made it to toy stores. Various pieces of art from the production process have surfaced, however.
The second wave action figures included Bucky O'Hare with Space Walk Lifeline, Jenny, Kamikaze Kamo, Pit Stop Pete, Rumble Bee, Sly Lee-Zard, and Total Terror Toad.
The second wave vehicles included the Twin-Turbo Toad Thrasher, the Battle Bucket, the T.O.A.D. Bomber, and The Righteous Indignation playset.
