Deja Vu, All Over Again

Something quick and dirty today - more scheduling difficulties, again. I promise to make up for it by finishing all of those half-written blog posts I have sitting in my hard drive, including my latest flea market report (almost as awesome as last week), the swap meet analysis, and maybe even the Tenite and injection molding follow-up. (I think the Universe is trying to drop me a hint along those lines anyway: among the things I found at the flea market yesterday were some injection molding manuals. All the subtlety of a sledge hammer, yeesh!)

I just noticed something the other day - another possible case of mold updating/replacement. First, the much-anticipated BreyerFest Giselle/Gilen combo of Stage Mom and Child Star:


And, from the 1963 Breyer Dealer’s Catalog, here’s the Running Mare and Foal combo, Sugar & Spice:


Ooh, spooky!

I have no idea if this was intentional or not, but it sure seems like it, doesn’t it? Running mares, running foals, two distinct shades of gray/black, with cutesy alliterative names? Has someone at Reeves - gasp! - been doing their homework?

If so, good job guys - and this time around, don’t wimp out on the Buckskins. I think they’d look fantastic in that color. Though true Charcoals and Alabasters would be nice, too. (Gloss or matte - I’m not picky!)

Are Giselle and Gilen in plastic this time, or porcelain again?

ANDREA said...

Plastic this time - that's what's generating the excitement.

Ah. I apparently need to re-up my JAH subscription. Awesome. I thought they were cute the first time, but Conns are too expensive and I don't do porcelain, usually.

Am I nuts, or did they use a treble clef instead of an ampersand on 'Sugar & Spice' there? Ha!

And good eye, I never thought about it this way, but it does make sense!

They did! Ha ha!
