    Okay, maybe I'm missing something, but this looks really strange to me. Is this just some custom job or was it actually produced this way? Is this some weird proto-Diaclone version?

    Weird.

    Bot mode looks cool. No idea what it is or where it came from.

    EDIT: I bought it. Seems like it may be rare.

    I have this same one but with a red chest. I also have the Grimlock and Slag with horns that look like tree branches. All of them are knock-offs but the Grimlock and Sludge really look sweet

    I figured it was probably some strange old KO, but for $60, I was willing to give it a shot. He looks pretty cool, I think, and I've never heard of or seen these before!

    His bot mode looks like an angel or something.

    Ive seen this before. Out during G1. I think they were from Radio Shack or something. Other Dinobots existed too.

    Ah yes, the "Prehistory Beasts" :)  They came in Diaclone style boxes and there are LOTS of variations:

    Sludge:

    Normal
    Winged, red chest
    Winged, yellow chest
    and the very strange...extra set of legs on the tail section version

    Grimlock:

    Normal
    Blue Waist
    Red waist, horned dino head

    Slag:

    (I've seen most of the color variations with either standard shaped horns in either red plastic or gold chrome, or with the strange 3 pronged horns)

    Normal
    Blue chest
    Yellow chest
    Styracosaurus (More spikes on dinosaur neck crest)

    Snarl

    Black Chest
    Red Chest
    and a version with twin Dimetrodon like vanes on the tail instead of Stegosaurus and an elongated, more crockodile shaped dino head.

    I've usually seen them go in the $45 dollar range, so you didn't get a great deal, but you didn't get ripped off :)
