What are the best and worst 3rd party companies for you? Mine are: Best designs (original): Igear - best suited to my tastes as they are very cartoon accurate. Runners up: Fanstoys - Soundwave is great but they havent released a figure yet. Worst Designs: BTS - Sonicron and their cassettes (minus ratbat) Runner up: Fansproject - nice figures but i personally really dislike the manga style. Best Operation (QC, release schedule, teasing products etc.): Fansproject - don't tease months before any prototype is ready to be shown, QC is top notch, delays arent too frequent. Runner up: TFC - great customer service, QC can be iffy but they always fix issues. Worst Operation: Igear - way too much teasing without prototypes to back it up and delayed or canned products. Getting better tho. Runner Up: Xovergen - bad QC but few delays.
