Who’s got the sweetest disposition?
One guess–guess who!
Who never, never starts an argument?
Who never shows a bit of temperament?
Who’s never wrong but always right?
Who’d never dream of starting a fight?
Who gets stuck with all the bad luck?
No one…but Donald Duck!
Beast Kingdom added the Disney duck with all of the bad luck to their popular Dynamic 8ction Heroes figure lineup. Beast Kingdom’s Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures are highly articulated 1/9th scale figures. The figures also come loaded with accessories and alternate parts so that you can customize the character for your display. Other Fab Five Disney characters in the Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures product line include two versions of Mickey Mouse: Classic Black and White Mickey Mouse and Sorcerer Mickey from Fantasia.
Beast Kingdom is definitely big fans of Disney ducks and Disney Afternoon shows with Darkwing Duck, Negaduck, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures. Hopefully even more Disney Afternooniverse figure releases will be coming soon.
Our friends at Beast Kingdom sent over the Donald Duck Dynamic 8ction Heroes figure for us to showcase on the blog. Let’s get quacking!
The packaging for this Donald Duck figure comes in a square blue box with artwork of Donald Duck’s face on the front of the box.
Donald Duck (DAH-042)
Donald Fauntleroy Duck stands over 6 inches tall and includes 12 points of articulation. Donald’s hat attaches to his head via a magnet at the bottom of the hat and another magnet in the head sculpt.
Donald has had many different sailor suit color variations from his career of almost 90 years. The colors of his soft goods fabric sailor suit for this figure represent Donald Duck in his current look. I wouldn’t mind seeing Beast Kingdom do a special edition release of Donald in classic black and white to match the Mickey Mouse Dynamic 8ction Heroes figure. A black sailor suit to represent his appearance in the comics or in DuckTales (2017) are also at the top of my wish list.
One of my all time favorite Donald Duck figures is the Donald Duck Hybrid Metal Figuration release from Herocross. When the Beast Kingdom Donald Duck Dynamic 8ction Heroes figure was first announced, I immediately thought of the Herocross figure and wondered how it would compare to the new Beast Kingdom figure. They both are amazing figures and each have their own positives. The Herocross figure has a greater weight to it, and it features additional points of articulation. For the Beast Kingdom figure, I like how it is slightly taller at the 1/9th scale and that the soft goods sailor suit covers some of the joints. Both figures come with multiple alternate hands and head sculpts, but the Beast Kingdom figure parts are way easier to swap out. I would rank them as 1 (a) and 1 (b) for best Donald Duck figures as they both are really fantastic.
The Beast Kingdom Donald Duck (DAH-042) figure is not loaded with accessories like other Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures, but it does come with an assortment of alternate parts that will give you plenty of options to customize your Donald Duck figure in your display. I did not experience any issues with swapping out parts, but you should always be careful and not rush your swaps.
- Two interchangeable face sculpts (regular and angry)
- Each face sculpt comes with four sets of alternate eyes (looking up, down, left, and right)
- Three (3) pairs of interchangeable hands (open, gripped, holding)
- Donald Duck figure base with bracket
The figure base is a really nice addition as it is not listed on the product list of accessories. The figure does not need the bracket to stand on it’s own. The base would look great in a display that has other Beast Kingdom Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures on their stands.
I love figures that I can pose with other pieces in my collection. I hope that you enjoy the toy photography below for display inspirations. The other products in these photos are sold separately.
Beast Kingdom’s Dynamic 8ction Heroes figure line continues to impress with this release of one of Disney’s most popular characters, Donald Duck. There is definitely a market for high quality Disney figures. I love the 1/9th scale sizing of this figure. The figure really is dynamic as it’s articulation allows for many different pose possibilities. This is not a figure collection that you are going to take out of the box and just put on a shelf and leave alone. You are going to have a great time with all of the included alternate parts to customize Donald for many different display options. The angry Donald face is hysterical and very fitting for his character.
Additional accessories specific to some of Donald’s most famous animated shorts or comics would have been a great inclusion for this figure. I could definitely see Beast Kingdom release more Donald Duck figures if this one sells well. Mickey Mouse has two figures, and Donald Duck is way more popular than Mickey, right?
Donald looks great paired up with the Mickey Mouse Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures or the new DuckTales Dynamic 8ction Heroes figures releasing soon of Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Beast Kingdom definitely seems committed to adding additional Disney animated characters to this exciting product line.
There are no “Aw, Phooeys!” about this figure as it will make an excellent addition to your collection.
