    Can anyone help me identify this figure, please? Who made it? Has it ever been available commercially? I doubt it's still available, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Lovely figure. And annoyingly, the post that Andrew links to just describes it as a "very limited edition" with no indication of where it would have been available from.

    I appreciate the additional searching you did, Andrew. I followed your links and did a bit more exploring myself. I imagine this limited edition piece was snatched up pretty quickly. Too bad. It's a real gem. Have a great day, my friend.

    Not surprised to read it's an Asociacion Alabarda piece. They apparently release just one limited edition figure per year and it seems that some get snapped up more quickly than others.

    Zapatero is their go-to sculptor and the subjects are always Spanish explorers/statesmen and Spanish colonial wars. I have a couple of theirs from a few years back, "El Gran Capitan" (the Reconquista-era general Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba) and the conquistador Vasco Nunez de Balboa.

    From what I saw on the association's website, you did well to grab a couple of their figures while they were available, Steve. And I agree--Zapatero is a top tier sculptor.
