Default Another BotCon toy? If so, who is it?

Found from one of the usual Asian sources, an oddly coloured Cybertron/Anniversary Beast Wars Megatron toy in a BotCon baggie.

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...rfaces-169928/

and here

http://www.seibertron.com/transforme...egatron/18848/

(I've posted both links for the discussion/guesses of what it is)

Is it a homage, or just a new character like last year's set had?

And if it is a homage to an existing character, who could possibly match those colours. A Gen2 version of a character that was never released in Gen2 perhaps?

It has such a hideous colour scheme, the character and story behind it had better be something awesome to make up for it.

It looks like homage to Beast-Bot from the Go-Bots line (the recent Hasbro one, not the old Tonka one).

I was going to say G2 Grimlock but then the other colours on that mystery figure throw that idea well out of the park.

Kinda pointless without the cold sparks... but a very likely answer as to who the toy will be.
