    My current Greasebat lineup, excluding custom versions. It's almost complete, with a few glaring exceptions (that I know of) listed below.

    [​IMG]

    Missing at least 4 versions:
    1) Original unpainted red test pull
    2) Unpainted black (SDCC 2010)
    3) Unpainted baby blue head/pink body (Cotton Candy Machine)
    4) *GID head/espresso body (SDCC 2012)
    I realize it's not likely to happen, but I WOULD GLADLY BUY OR TRADE FOR ANY OF THESE!

    *Note regarding Missing #4: The Greasebat in the photo with similar colors (5th from the right) is a slightly different version that Chad brought to DesignerCon 2012. It has a GID head on a very dark, almost black, body.

    Nice lineup! There's also an unpainted version of the Aurora Mixed (only 5 of those), and there are two versions of the CCM, pink head and blue head. There are only 2 of the red test pulls, and Jeff and Walter have those, so good luck with that :). Jeff has a few unpainted versions that I haven't seen for sale, like Grey, Olive, and White. Angie Vtec has a clear pink one that I think is a 1/1.

    Are you sure about that #4? I think that's what you have. They made 7 of the GID/espresso mix for the toy awards at NYCC. That's the one they were calling "espresso" and it really is almost black. If there's another version that's a lighter brown, I haven't seen it.

    Also I have dibs on any available unpainted blacks, and death and destruction will rain down on any miscreants who get in the way of that.

    Thanks shank I wish I was better at cataloging my own stuff.
    I don't have either of the cotton candy releases. But I have everything else and some additional test paints, unpainteds etc.
    yeah the mixed parts brown/glow were all different at sdcc12 Maybe 3 and DTA 7 and dcon was a one off I think.

    The plot thickens! So there were three different glow/brown releases, with slightly different browns? My inner completist is totally pissed! I say we call it a run of 11 and move on with our lives. ;)

    I'll trade you my CCM for your unpainted black!

    I hope to add these to my collection as well. As always Jeff, love the way your drawings convert so well to toy form.

    So many excellent factors in this homage Jeff. The broken model aspect of the spaceship, his surprise look at being spotted trashing it, mini GB munching away in the corner.
