    I found a pic of the G1 version and he was blue....But the universe version is a completely different coloring (duh). Can anyone help me understand the origin of this color of dropshot?

    Autobot Micromaster Battle Patrol. Why they didn't put Autobot insignia on him and call him Flak, I'll never know.

    I think they wanted to make him a Decepticon to keep some amount of evenness in the universe factions. I mean, if they made him an autobot then the factions for universe through wave 3 would be

    Autobots
    Prowl
    Sunstreaker
    Blades
    Blaster
    "flak"
    Powerglide
    Silverbolt
    Ironhide
    Sideswipe
    Bluestreak (Silverstreak)

    Decepticons:
    Octane
    Galvatron
    Acid Storm
    Onslaught
    Mixmaster (Heavy Load)

    By the looks of him it seems to me they were trying to go for a swamp camo look and just picked a name on the closest G1 homage.

    Ahhhh I see, Flak...I definitely see the resemblance. I shall put an autobot sticker on him and call him that. ;)
