Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series 2 Ace Duck 1989 

The vintage Playmates Ace Duck action figure was released in 1989 as part of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series 2 line of figures.  This figure reminds me of Darkwing Duck and Donald Duck.

Ace Duck was a mutation of an Earth Duck and famous test pilot Ace Conrad, who accidently flew into the energy beam of the transmuting duck who was being taken to Dimension X for Kang. He then crash-landed into the sewers and found himself in the Turtles hideout.

He only had a very brief cameo on the TV series in season 3 when the Turtles were watching an “Ace Duck” film festival on their TV.

A Collapsible Table:

He also appeared in the Archie Comics as a pro-wrestler, when he wrestles for  Slump’s Intergalactic Wrestling circuit, of which he is reigning champion. Ace Duck never interacted directly with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles he was always seen fighting in a match before the turtles would wrestle.

Ace Duck was sculpted and painted wearing a brown leather flight jacket, blue pants and white gloves. Being a duck hybrid, he also had yellow webbed feet and under his leather flight jacket he had white chest feathers. He even had the Turtle insignia on the back of his jacket.

Ace Duck Review

The paintwork and sculpting on this figure were excellent and Playmates did a superb job of replicating the cartoon character, really bringing him to life. The paint was very professionally applied with no smudging and only a little overlapping, mainly on his jacket lapels. The detail on the sculpting was also spot on, particularly the head sculpt and feathers.

He also came with detachable, poseable wings that could be adjusted and clipped onto his back with a peg. He also had a removable green pilot’s cap, a green revolver and four “egg” grenades. 

His articulation, as with many of the toy lines in the 80’s was very basic, probably more so than most for this particular figure but his wings and other all quality made up for this. The articulation on his legs was limited as they were sculpted in a slightly bent position, this also made it difficult for him to stand unaided, especially when he was wearing his wings. His arms however had both ball and hinge joints meaning they could be fully rotated as well as moved up and down.

The main thing to look out for when buying Ace Duck loose on the secondary market is that he is complete with his accessories, especially his four egg grenades as these are commonly missing because, due to their size, they were often lost. You can buy these separately online but they are hard to find and expensive, I saw sets selling for upwards of $30 while researching this article/video.


MOC $90-$100

( I could only find two MOC figures that had sold on eBay in the last year)

MLC $20-$40

Loose non-Mint $10-$25
