A soldier and his dead ducky... seriously...    posted on Feb 17th, 2013, 8:03pm
 
Hey everyone,  
 
So this is a bit odd but I was curious as to whether anyone happens to have this little black rubber ducky with green X's for eyes. I.e. the attached picture.  
 
I'm an active duty soldier currently deployed overseas and on the way here my identical ducky was lost. There's a lot of back story as to how I came to have that duck in the first place and after trying to track mine down in every way I could think of I have come to realize that I won't be able to recover it. I've was seriously on hold for hours with the airport that I remember last seeing it... you can only imagine the reactions I've gotten from people when they realize I'm serious about trying to track down a rubber duck...
 
Anyway! I started searching the internet to try to purchase a new one but apparently it is no longer made. That being the case I started trying to find collectors or people with posted pictures of this particular duck. When I found DuckPlanet I thought that perhaps I would post to the site before starting to ask specific collectors about buying this duck off of them. If someone would be willing to part with theirs I would love to hear from them. Obviously I would be more than willing to compensate you for the duck and for the shipping of it.  
 
I'm sure this sounds pretty ridiculous but it's a sentimental value type thing, ya know? Hope to hear back from someone!

Hello,
There is no picture?
Perhaps you mean this duck? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dead-Duck-Black-Rubber-Duck-Zombie-Bathroom-Toy-Gothi c-Emo-Punk-Office-Bedroom-/251188246050
It is for sale at ebay. I don't know which duck else it could be, I'm sorry.
I wish you good luck with finding one!

I don't know why the attachment didn't go through the first time. Here it is again.  
 
I've seen the duck that the Ebay auction is on, it's not the same one. Trust me, I've tried everything from Ebay to Amazon to calling up shops I remember seeing this little guy at from NYC to DC.

PS: Once again the attachment didn't go despite the fact that when I go to edit the post it says that I do have an attachment included in my post. That being the case, here's a link to a picture of the duck in question:
