    I've found a pic online, and have, as of yet, been unsuccessful in ID'ing it. Can ANYONE shed some light on this?

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts on this.

    My first guess is one of the k-mart exclusives. Name escapes me though.

    May be a custom

    I know the mold. And I've exhausted the TFU.info library, as well as TFWiki. And finally, if Google searches entitled a person to stock options, I'd OWN it now...

    I almost suspect a custom, but can't be sure.

    That's a knockoff version. Pretty much the same size as the original.

    A decent Minicon mold, IMO.

    It's not a deco that has received an official release (yet).

    It's either a KO, a custom, or a pending release of the toy.

    Shelfwarmercon, do you have a link showing it's a KO? I'd like to see what else is available with it.

    Thanks!

    I have a blue version of this. Will post a pic here when I get home later.

    The side windows of the cockpit aren't painted. That's a common feature for a lot of knockoff Minicons and Micromasters.

    I think it's a KO or a custom.

    Here's the pics of the knockoff. Different colored plastic, but with the same white "cloud camouflage" paint apps.

    Robot mode, with two legitimate Minicons for size comparison.
