I saw one recently on eBay in a box of controllers. Outside of that, I've never heard or seen one before. (rare/uncommon)

Yup, it appears to be the first turbo controller Sega made for the Genesis/Mega Drive. I'm guessing MegaFire gets it's name from the Mega Drive. Interestingly enough, on the first arcade style joystick Sega made for the Genesis, they labeled the turbo fire options, Megafire as well.
