A look back of July 2010 of my first time meeting the gang of @newmedicinerock were only about 50 people showed up! They have now gone in different directions in life 🤘 So very happy for @jakerosemusic is making a name for himself with country music! He’s already been playing shows with the great @thetimmcgraw and @eliyoungband :) @ryanaguzman #showbox#seattle#goodtimes#darkwingduck @adelitasway #nofilter#show#concert#lounge @caitlin_hardee @creightontaylorbibbs @trestafford @dnd7_official @bieks1237 @nobleshark @kjwallen

I’ve always been more of a #donaldduck than a #mickeymouse ... I have a soft spot for characters with a short fuse when heckled. Also, the Donald Duck universe gave us #darkwingduck !!!
It’s strange to me that I’ve only had one request for #Minnie and one request for #sorcerersapprentice Mickey (Star fabric hood 🤩). But making Donald was super cute.
Funko | Disney Afternoon | Launchpad McQuack | 2018 "If it's got wings, I can crash it." I loved LP so much when I was a kid, that I never realized how much of a dangerous commodity he was. I always found his buffoonery charming, and as such he was so cool. I loved the old 40's flight gear, the bomber jacket. Despite being an uninsurable nightmare I'd still trust him to pilot us to our destination in one piece.
So does the figure do him justice? Well, first of all, it's been 30 years since the character debuted, so I'm happy to have him. But the figure itself is pretty nice.
He looks to be fairly on-model. The colors are perfect. Since most of the pieces are molded color there aren't too many deco mishaps. There is an unfortunate pin hole on the parting line of his right shoulder.
Articulation is decent. He has hinged ball jointed shoulders, bends at the elbows, waist swivel, his feet rotate at the tops of his boots and his head is in a ball joint. Again, I wished his hands rotated.
He fits in nicely with the Funko Darkwing Duck figure and he's about the same size as the @phatmojo LP.
Overall he's a fun and welcome addition to my Disney Afternoon collection. Now we need Goslin and some Darkwing Duck villains (Megavolt FTW!). I snagged this guy on @amazon but he should be hitting stores soon! 🌈
Funko | Disney Afternoon | Darkwing Duck | 2017
I am a huge Darkwing Duck fan; I loved the series. I bought the DVD collections and watched them with my kids and I still have my 90's @playmatestoys Darkwing. I'll admit, I was skeptical of these action figures. I wanted to wait to see if Funko would release more characters before committing. So once Launchpad and Gizmoduck were released I hit @amazon and picked him up.
And I'm really glad I did. The sculpt is superb and the colors are fantastic!
The articulation is a bit disappointing. While the shoulders are hinged ball joints, and the elbows bend, there isn't much else. I wish the head was on a ball joint, but it just has a swivel. The most frustrating part are the legs. There are swivel cuts, but these legs don't move at all. Maybe it's just mine, but it's a head scratcher. 🤷♂️ Articulation aside, I am glad I bought this figure. He looks so much better than my beloved Playmates fig. Check Amazon, he's still available for retail. 🌈
