    Hey all,

    Got this figure I can't identify for the life of me. Unfortunately, couldn't snap a pic of it but...

    Looks like a beastformer. It seems to be based off of this dinosaur:

    The head at least pretty much forms the fossil look of the above's head. Hands/Legs are red, Other parts are brown. Also has tan and amber wings. Lower beak is a translucent amber as are some other wing parts. Definitely modern as it's got great articulation.

    Skydive's a great figure. However I prefer his Beast Machines colours to the Universe ones.

    Ditto, the BM version of Skydive is probably my favorite flying beast TF of all time! (and people on this board IDed him for me too when I got him in a lot)

    Really? Maybe the pics on tfu.info don't do it justice.

    I love the Universe figure. Got him as a freebie throw-in in a lot I bought and was mystified by him. Now he kind of looks like a Swoop/Dinobot homage somewhat in the Universe colors.

    Fits in nicely with my G1-G1 homage-G1 pseudohomages (yea, sometimes I reach) collection
