Sancho Update - The End is in Sight
Here's a quick update on the Sancho figure produced by Daniel and Johnny Monahan of Angels and Gringos. More than a year has passed since the two brothers began their journey to transform Daniel's Sancho sketches into a vinyl figure. The wait is about to pay off -- Sancho is expected to be released towards the end of the year.
After numerous delays and rounds of revisions with the initial factory, Sancho's production samples were of unacceptable quality. At this point, Daniel and Johnny made the difficult and costly decision to switch factories. Since the switch things have gone quickly and smoothly as you can see from these pics of production samples from the new factory. The brothers are extremely pleased with current progress and relieved that "all the nuance and balance designed into the original piece have been preserved". Look for regular updates on the home stretch of Sancho's journey to your shelf.

Yessss! I was a little concerned when I didn't see this in the SDCC coverage since I was thinking I'd heard it would be released at the con this year. Very glad to know this is still coming along.
I very happy to hear that this piece will still be coming out soon. I love what I seen so far of it and I can't wait for the black and gold version. Is still going to be a Toy Tokyo version?
Best of luck with the new factory, I hear some can be a real pain.
Oh yay! I have been pining for this fig, very excited to hear it's finally coming out.
I met the guys who created this figures at SDCC, they were humble and
had a good vibe. Nice figure Two thumbs UP!!
Been closely watching the development of this piece, and I'm so happy to hear that he's still on his way. Beautiful and I can't wait!
