An acquaintance of mine is trying to identify an unknown piece in his collection, which consists of figures from Armada, Energon, Cybertron, Animated, Prime, and all the movies.
He's taken a few pics of it with his phone, but they are pretty blurry (I've requested that he try taking some with a digital camera if he can):
He tried to draw the design seen in the piece if it would help:
After asking him more about the part, he gave the follow descriptions of it:
1. In normal lighting, "It's yellowish, but it looks like it's just photodegradation"
2. Physical dimension measurements: "about 5/8 in long, about 1 1/2 in wide"
3. Round vs. flat: " It's kind of round"
4. Regarding any connection ports/tabs/holes/etc. that it might have, "There are what look like two really small tabs on the back."
5. Structural material: "It's soft plastic over a hard plastic"
And, for further reference, he listed a good number of the figures he owns from Armada, Energon, Cybertron, and Animated:
Galaxy Force Optimus Prime (I mean the red and black one, not the Japanese one)
Liger Jack (Galaxy Force version)
Breakdown/Brakedown (whichever spelling is correct)
Dump truck Demolishor
Deluxe Two-Pack Earth Prime
Blackarachnia (from two-pack with Prime)
Earth Mode Megatron
Dinobots (all three)
Me and a few others are stumped as to what this thing could be, so I turned to a larger fan community for assistance.
