    made from a altered hftd hubcap.i'm trying to keep these guys all the same molds,but with slight differences.as per some members suggestions,i went and gave him a set of wheel well filling wheels,courtesy of a disney pixar cars "boost" vehicle.he also now sports a nifty ram air hood and a "whale tail" spoiler.alot of shaving had to be done to his thigh side panels and the backs of his heels in order to accomodate the new rear spoiler.
    the original micromasters bigdaddy and greaser shared the same "mold" tree",as in the main car parts on one bot were molded on the same tree as the inner bot parts for the other.
    i tried to emulate this by using the exact same colors for bigdaddy and greaser,just in opposite schemes.again,the windows,sunroof,tail lights,fireballs/flames and the top of the spoiler are all hand cut automotive 2mil. vinyl.
    all that's left now is to hand cut him a tiny autobot logo for his hood.he also sports a hole in his rear end for something fun later on.(i know,i know,it just sounds wrong!:p )

    bio= (from tfwiki)
    Greaser is the "muscle" of the hotrod patrol, and serves as bigdaddy's right-hand bot. He's the most skilled at vehicular combat, and with good reason. Banned from legit races by his criminal record during the "peacetime", Greaser turned to illegal races where the losers are likely to leave in a box to satisfy his need for speed. Numerous bouts against the likes of barricade and other future decepticons honed his skills and earned him his numerous vehicle-mode armaments, including his trademark oil slicks... but he found himself longing to get out. He eventually joined the Autobots, but his past still haunts him. He doesn't like to talk about it, and really doesn't like it when anyone else does.

    The pipes are moled into the toy. It would take way too much effort to remove them.

    really good job on this guy. I love the added parts! I own this guy because the alt mode rocks and the bot mode isn't bad, I do however hate the head sculpt but the way you painted it makes me feel like there's hope :D 

    Right now he's in my parts bin without a head until I find a good one and because of you I'm going to try to paint the stock head to see if I can flesh out something palatable. Great work and here's to hoping Hasbro can take a hint with a repaint we'd all love, cheers!
