I just got my Duck-O-Lantern, Mummy, and Duckvaria today! Well, the wait was long, but I've got to say that these are top quality ducks. They are carefully painted and have a lot of detail.
The Mummy duck is fantastic! The detailed texture is so fine that it looks like the duck is wrapped in actual bandages! It is one of my favorite Rubbas now.
Duckvaria is nice also. A lot of rubber ducks that have sculpted-on hair and clothes can get too odd-looking and are funny rather than cute, but Duckvaria actually looks quite sweet. Again, great detail on this one. I'm not a fan of ducks that are too human but if that doesn't bother you than this is a good one to have. Also, this one is highly collectible being an Oktoberfest exclusive.
Duck-O'-Lantern has a nice orange color, pumpkin-like ridges and looks kinda goth because of the black beak and black-rimmed eyes. Not as cute as the other two. That said, I'd say it is one of the cuter ducks of the really strange ones that Rubba has produced.
Overall, I'm impressed with the quality of these new ducks. One minor complaint: Duck-O-Lantern and Mummy are too hard. Rubber ducks should really be squeezable and soft.
