Production has begun
A more upbeat ..update this time: Things are well + Production has begun. In fact, it should be well underway by now. I just finished signing, numbering and embossing about 1,500 Certificates of Authenticity, which will be packed out with each figurine. I have sent those off to the factory along with the box top label art; I'll request some pics from the factory so that hopefully my next update will be more interesting.
