    3Ps have been a thing for what, 12 years now? Whoaaaaa.

    Remember how there were a good 6 companies making Dinobots? Can you believe we have THREE Toywolf transforming toilets, complete with poop? And the Arcee kit that shall remain nameless?

    What were the weirdest moments in the history of 3Ps?

    Oh yeah, that was a thing.

    Crazy Devy add-on parts were pretty odd. The amount of money one could spend to make their G1 figures look ... ok .... was pretty crazy.

    Sonicron and his cassettes were weird looking back, but they were pretty fitting for the reimagination angle Classics had taken at that time.

    The bizarrely-colored, con-exclusive repaints of the humanoid casettes, however, were weird back then and are still weird now.

    Remember when 3rd party figures seemed expensive compared to Takara's reasonable prices?

    Sure seems weird now.

    When a third party company made a knockoff of their own toy in order to out-knockoff another knockoff

    When the pervs started feeling bold enough to make exaggeratedly sexualized versions of fembots and boob add-ons for Arcee.
