''Following the disastrous events of Operation Waterfront where several Joes were taken prisoner by Cobra, General Hawk has tasked Chuckles to put together a team to find and rescue his men. Meanwhile, a new group of GI Joe recruits are tasked with finding out what Cobra’s new plan is.

Grease Monkey - Deluxe figure
Filecard by Charles Cushman (Raptor)
The idea for Grease Monkey started with
the name. Although the Joe team already has a few mechanics, none of
them have that as their main specialty. I wanted to create a character
that was an honest-to-gosh stay-at-base mechanic. I started with a cast
head that I had in my fodder box. Since his role was more civilian in
nature, I opted for very basic parts – a t-shirt with overalls and I
wanted to include lots of tools and accessories. For the colors, I
started with green overalls, but changed them to blue to set him apart
from his military colleagues.
