    Definitely not dialcone sludge.

    There are vintage KOs contemporaneous with g1 that all have crazy changes to them. I think there were kos of the kos too. They were called 'prehistory animals' and other similar names.

    Here's a link with a few of them:

    They've been on ebay lately too, they're really not worth a whole ton though contrary to the pitches some people write in the description area.

    I think it's a KO.
    Can't remember there beeing a Diaclone Dinobot with any mold differences (aside from Swoop's beak) from it's Transformers version.

    EDIT: beaten to the punch.

    It's a Chinese knockoff. Winged sludge! It goes for a decent amount $30 iirc, since it's a novelty.
