My Personal Notes: Zap unfortunately is one of the few casualties in my path to keep my Joes over the years. I had him as a kid, but he did somehow become one of the few that got lost. I liked him, but had no special attachment for him in particular that I remember. He is a 2012 eBay acquisition.

My Personal Notes: As stated above, I had no particular love for Zap, but when I bought him, I used the pictures the seller had up for him as temporary placeholders. They are good and amusing in someways pictures, so I decided to not eliminate them from this page. They are below.
