GI Joe Resurgence II Day 6: Grease Monkey

''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. Little do they know that both missions will lead them to Gold Springs, a nice little town in the desert…''

From the desk of Oreobuilder:
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.

Head: Cast
Torso, arms, legs: Renegades Tunnel Rat
Accessories: Mighty World, Playmobil, Lego
