He had a Megavolt from Playmate's Darkwing Duck line that really took me back. Readers of this blog are probably a little confused as to why a figure like this caught my eye . . . I'll get to that. As soon as I saw that this was an item up for dibs I had to enquirer about it. I did, and about 4 days later it was at my house along with some other interesting goodies that was packed in the box for me!

Ok now for the story as to why I was so happy to get this figure. I had this figure when I was young. I loved Darkwing Duck and one of the reasons was because I loved Megavolt. Don't know why, but I really liked the character, he was zany and he dealt with electricity. The figure sparked, and I had never seen anything like that (I missed out on Blackstarr some how and didn't realize this was a feature of some of those figures until much later!) It was odd that it came with any accessories though because he couldn't actually hold them. . .
The figure became hard to find in stores after I had mine. And a friend had been looking for it but instead got a new Star Trek figure (laforge) which was new on the shelves at about the same time and it was a cool figure too. lots of accessories lots of stuff. I liked it a lot too, and my friend convinced me to trade him for Megavolt, and I regretted it as soon as the deal was done. Hind site is 20/20even when you are a kid and you JUST made the trade!
To be honest I hadn't thought about it a lot since I have been seriously collecting and such, but when I saw it at cool and collected I had to pick it up!
So, Thanks Brian, I am glad to add Megavolt back to my collection!
