They're not supposed to be ducks, unless someone was making an inside joke. They are tentactles that just happen to look like ducks.
I think I like the explanation someone else said earlier in the thread better than the ducks one, it looks like two tentacles fondle his nipples.

Because that's the most iconic part of him, plus all Pretender homages have been based off of the shell.
Except deluxe Bludgeon SG Bludgeon and SG Submarauder.
I believe you're talking about the ROTF repaint of Wreackage?
That doesn't refference the shell due to not being meant as an update of the original character, while the Voyager version was designed as a Classics version of the character.
SG Bludgeon is just a purpose of RID Bludgeon and ment as a nice nod to that incarnation of the character. I give you that on Submarauder though.
Also another reason why they homaged the shell with this one is the simple fact that, there is no toy that turns into a crab in any of the recent toy-lines, which they limited themselves to.
