    It's a repaint of the G2 Air Raid Cyberjet. Looks hand-painted, as the yellow is chipping in parts to reveal a blackish green color (Air Raid was black, faded yellow over black is going to look green in color).

    IMO, looks like either a decent custom, or some cancelled toy from the first "Universe" line (you know, the original Universe line that had HORRID repaints of your favorite characters).

    EDIT: This looks eerily a lot like Delta Seeker from Takara-Tomy. the Autobot symbol, the way it's shaped and looks "faded" is nearly identical. May have been a "test shot" type of figure.

    It's not painted, you can't get paint to look the way the closeups of it's wings do. It's just dirty. Could be a test shot.

    Definitely not black plastic painted over yellow. That's yellow plastic!

    The few paint ops it has look like nothing any other version of the sculpt had before.

    Look inside the ball joint in the shoulder in the second picture, the black limb parts look painted anyway.

    Good eye. Still I checked our resources section and TFU and can't find a version of this mold with grey plastic shoulders either.

    Edit: The missiles looked molded in blue plastic and neither Delta Seeker, Skyjack, nor either Air Raid have blue missiles.

    High quality KO or test shot (though don't they usually not have tampographed faction symbols?)

    Maybe a store exclusive, part of a set?

    It's the lesser of the 3 Cyberjet molds, but I'd buy.
