If this has not been done already, I would like to point out that this toy is Elite Guard Dion who is at the same level as Elite Guard Kup. This time period represents their younger more energetic selves. In th BotCon 2009 Comic, the Kup who was telling his story was the same Kup that we first saw in the 1986 movie. Millions of years before, Kup was in a different newer body as an Elite Guard member. This would help justify Elite Guard Dion having a different body than the G1 Dion we all know and love. Dion could have altered his body before the events in the cartoon and became a member of the Elite Guard in a similar way that Kup changed his form.
