I saw this appear on Youtube, so I thought I'd let everyone else know... I wasn't even aware they did a third party panel. Starts with talking about how you make 3PT, then goes into questions, then slides of some upcoming products. Watch the two part videos below for the full view of the Charticon 2013 Third Party panel videos.
Thanks to Christopher Santiago who has posted some information about a problem with the TFC Toys Uranos F4 Phantom: "Just got my tfc uranos f4 phantom the other day. There seems to be a problem with the hip rachets because it just clicked a few times then eventually began to squeak now. I think the rachets are chewing the hip connections and the left tip of the wing on mine were it folds is misaligned thus not being able to fold completely compared to the right one. Hope you could address these issues as with what you did with hercules. I am a big fan of your products. More power. Thanks" Watch Christopher's video for the full details below.
