I was so happy this cartoon had a decent toyline and it was made by Playmates, who were at the time going gangbusters with the Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles action figure line.
I was lucky enough to pick these up before the prices on them shot up.
Launchpad Mcquack who everyone knows from DuckTales and was quite a strange choice for a crossover character. But he made the series. I just wonder who was flying for Scrooge while he was away...lol
Honker Muddlefoot was Goslin's tag along partner.
(sadly his glasses fell off and are in the bottom of the bubble)
Gosalyn...Darkwing's adopted daughter and secondary sidekick next to Launchpad.
These 2 villains are my least favorite of the series.
Tuskerninni...a film maker gone bad, with a camera that can bring movies to life. Not a bad idea, but I just couldn't find myself liking him at all. Would have been cool if they had packed in a couple of his penguin henchmen.
Steel Beak sadly was another villain I didn't care for. While I liked the idea of F.O.W.L...I just didn't care for him as a character.
Now these are 2 of my favorites of the set.
Dr. Bushroot was kind of like an evil/comedicly tragic Poison Ivy. All his crimes were plant based in nature.
Megavolt. Next to Nega Duck, he was my top evildoer from the cartoon. Just because he was so off balance and just a bit over they top crazy.
(Cardback for all figures are the same except for the profile card.)
But alas...I do not have the shows main character in action figure form....or at least not a carded figure of him. Oh no, he is the one figure I haven't run across yet.
I do have him in some form from the toyline.
This can only be described as MEGA DUCK! A full 12 inch figure with cloth cape and removable Fedora. The only thing I wish they would have included would have been his Gas Gun.
The box is a little worse for wear, but can you belive I picked him up on Clearance for only $2.90!!
Aside from the figures they also produced vehicles like the Rat Catcher motorcycle and the Thunderquack plane. They even produced a life sized replica of his Gas Gun....sadly I have never run across these in the wild.
There was a series 2 set that was supposed to be released, but for whatever reason it was not mean to be...and I have to say...it was one hell of a line up!
I would have loved to see some of these released.
And in keeping with the Disney Afternoon theme...Don Karnage...leader of the Pirates.
The only regular sized figure I have from the TailSpin toyline (I have a 12 inch Baloo figure), but he is one of my favorite characters from the show. This is a pretty decent depiction of him, and makes me want to hunt down the other figures, especially Wildcat (who was my second favorite character).
