Breyerfest preparations are well under way, and new horses just keep getting released for the special event. Breyer notified via Facebook yesterday another horse release, and it would be a model made in 1990 (the same year that the first Breyerfest was celebrated). Here are the horses (posted today).
Another surprise guest horse has been announced...and Breyer has made a model to go with the likeness of the guest horse. Meet Novelisto D, a PRE Andalusian stallion who was chosen for the role of Athansor, a big white stallion in the new movie "Winters Tale," released on Valentines day.
The model portraying him is just as unique. I mix of both the Brishen mold, and Laredo.
Originally, Laredo was a spin off of Brishen, the same mold just without the wild hair, feathering, and the "icing" look. However, with Novelisto D, it seems like the top half of the new mold is Brishen, and the bottom half is of Laredo.
Laredo, 2013 Breyerfest horse.
Brishen, 2013 new release mold. I own the Gypsy Vanner in this mold.
I actually like the "new" mold out of the two other models. I love the Brishen mold, but Laredo looks a little "funky." I have never seen a Laredo in person before though, so I really wouldn't know.
Well, I just happened to think that maybe Breyer is doing this because of April Fools!
