Every year at BotCon, invariably there's an exclusive toy that really feels like somebody was saying, "hey, what's some cracked-out shit that Walky kid would like?" Well, this is this year's. This is Under-3.
Under-3 was a McDonald's Happy Meal toy way back in the early Beast Wars days. He wasn't part of the regular assortment, but a very simplified toy with minimal moving parts that was intended for children under the age of three. Hence the name. "Under-3" was printed on his baggy in the same space that the names for the other guys went. He was a lion head that flipped open like a clam to reveal a robot sculpted inside that looked kinda like Optimus Prime/Primal. That's it.
Bogglingly, a toy based on him is part of this year's BotCon offerings. He's a strait redeco of Combiner Wars Streetwise, meaning instead of transforming into just a head, now he can transform into just an arm or just a leg. And a yellow police car, but whatever. His name is "Unit-3" on his profile card because I don't know. The point is, that's just a callsign he uses, so his real name could easily be "Under-3." That's what really matters. Renaming Under-3 something else puts you on my shit list.
He's a very striking-looking toy, making him easily one of the best exclusive toys available this year -- and that's in the company of TM3 Megatron. He loses a little of the charm of the original toy (well, a lot of the original charm) by not transforming into a disembodied lion head, but I think being a new toy of that crazy-ass Happy Meal dude is its own separate charm. He's Under-3. For adults.
don't talk to me about the comic he appeared in just yet, there would only be swears
