Reissues Reissued

Another head’s up for those out of the loop: the much-talked-about BreyerFest Store Reissues have just made their reappearance - for sale, on the Breyer web site. They’re under the Traditional link, at a price slightly lower than they were in the store: $29.99, instead of $35.00.

The Huck’s already sold out, but the other four are still available, including the accessory-free Palomino Old Timer everyone was swooning over. (And yes, my chorus line of blinkerless Old Timers is now up to three! Huzzah!)

I kind of figured this would happen, though I thought it would happen a little closer to the holidays, maybe as a Black Friday Special.

More surprising still is that there were so few of the Huck Beys available; I don’t know if it’s because they produced fewer of them, if there was greater demand, or if they sold the bulk of them at BreyerFest.

Since they were still selling the Hucks on Sunday at BreyerFest, I’m sure it’s part of the equation somehow. On the other hand, they had - and still have - tons of Clydesdale Mares, too. More confirmation for my theory that there are/were several skids of Clyde Mare bodies loitering in the warehouse, mayhaps?

(Now imagining a huge army of Clydesdale Mare variations. Oddly, mostly in shades of Black. Ooh, now there's an idea: Black Horses for Black Friday! An entire family of Clydesdale in Solid Black with tan/brown hooves, like the original Special Run Family Arabians!)

(Wow, I'm way more tired than I thought. Rough day at work, but still...)

As far as the exact quantities, and purpose, that’s still a mystery. The next few days are going to be fairly hectic in my neck of the woods, so I’ll have to leave it to others to suss out that information.

Yes, thank you. I found out about these after Breyerfest. So, a pony for me, and a Christmas gift for my bestie.

Another thanks for the heads up. I am out of the loop so appreciate it. Had a bit of a time finding them as the shopatron link you have is defunct :)

Again, thanks!!

Yay! Thank you for the post! I was away for the weekend and I figured they would be long gone by now, but I was able to get the Old Timer and Clydesdale Mare. Lucky for me I'd already gotten the Huck at Breyerfest, but I missed the other two so I am now a very happy camper!
