Breyer released a brand new Web Special exclusive. His name is Coeur de Lion and he is the Classics Terrang mold which was sculpted by Maureen Love. His color was inspired by the Lionheart and he is a beautiful glossy dunalino color. I think he is quite dashing. Breyer is offering Coeur de Lion to Collector’s Club members first. Leftovers will be offered to the general public on November 16th, 2016. I personally don’t see him selling out early but you never know!
Here is what Breyer has to say about Coeur de Lion:
2016 Web Exclusive
Inspired by the popular limited edition Lionheart model, Coeur de Lion is ready to find a place of honor in your collection! We’ve painted up a favorite Classics sculpt in a rich dunalino with metallic accents. He also has primitive leg barring and a dorsal stripe all topped off with a spotted blanket and heavy gloss. Coeur de Lion is exclusively offered to Breyer Collectors Club members first!* 1/12 scale and comes in a mail order box.
*Early access to 712205 Coeur de Lion for current, valid Collector Club members in good standing until 11:59pm EST, 11/15/16, while supplies last. Any remaining models not sold after the early access period has ended will be offered for sale to the general public
Coeur de Lion seems to be in the same series as Cosette and Julien and Sophia. I have both of these horses available in my eBay Store. Cosette and Julien and Sophia are Classics Scale sculpts by Maureen Love. Their finishwork was designed by Thomas Bainbridge. As far as I know, Lionheart nor Coeur de Lion had their finish work designed by Tom. Please correct me if I am wrong!
I’m very pleased that Breyer is bringing back these beloved old Maureen Love molds!
Speaking of Maureen Love molds. We recently made a video highlighting the difference between the Old Mold and the New Mold Proud Arabian Mare. You can see it on our YouTube Channel Aidan’s Toy Trove. We would love to hear from you if you have ideas for future videos!

Meet Gideon, he is the second Breyer 2016 Collector’s Club Exclusive. He is the Smart Chic O’lena mold in a pretty bay or perhaps grulla pinto. He is available to purchase to 2016 Collector’s Club members. Breyer states that Gideon will be limited to 1,000 and will be available while supplies last. I wonder if there are more than 1,000 Collector’s Club members?? Gideon is priced at $65 + $14.50 domestic shipping. Will you be adding this handsome boy to your collection? We will definitely be ordering Gideon! Here is what Breyer has to say about Gideon: A Breyer Collector […]

Guess what? The Breyer 700119 Woodland Splendor Christmas horse AND Breyer 1771 Xavier are on the way. Woohoo! They should be here within the next couple of weeks. If there is enough demand, I will set up preorders for them. I’m silly excited over the release of these particular 2 horses. The Breyer 1783 Gold Valegro is not yet available yet. As stated before, we unfortunately will not be receiving any of the Breyer 1767 Gloriosos. Breyer Fall 2016 Releases – Glorioso & Xavier & Gold Valegro Save

Meet Yasmin, the 3rd release in the Breyer 2016 Premier Club. She is a brand new Shagya Arabian cross sculpted by one of my favorite artists, Brigitte Eberl! Her beautiful pinto color was designed by color expert Lesli Kathman. Yasmin will ship in November 2016. I’m so excited for this horse! She and Shannondell are my favorite Premier Club horses of 2016. To be honest, after Shannondell, I wasn’t expecting to like the 3rd Premier Club horse of the year. Thankfully, I couldn’t have been more wrong! Breyer’s Sneak Peak email for Yasmin reads as follows: Yasmin, the 3rd Model […]

For the first time we are running a Buy 2 and Get 1 At 20% Off Sale on everything in our eBay store. This applies to Fixed Price listings only. The wording eBay uses for this can be a bit confusing.

Breyer 2017 Premier Club
I have been a member of the Breyer Premier Club for the past several years. This year, Shannondell was my favorite model. The Breyer 2017 Premier Club is now open for renewal. Breyer posted a picture of the first 2017 Premier Club horse. His name is True north and he is sculpted by Morgen Kilbourn. Morgen was also the sculptor of Wyatt. True North was decorated by one of my favorite painters, Stephanie Michaud. His paint job definitely let’s Steph’s unique painting style show through! Just seeing these pictures of True North has convinced me to join the 2017 Premier Club. Will you be joining?

These have been a very long time coming but I finally finished posting all of the BreyerFest 2016 Stablemates to the website. The BreyerFest 2016 Single Day Stablemates were all number 711235. They came packed in colorful Stablemate sized boxes. We have all of the BreyerFest 2016 Stablemates in stock and available for immediate shipment. I do anticipate offering some for sale as a complete set but I haven’t gotten around to making a listing for that yet. Please inquire at email@example.com if you would like to purchase a set. There are links below to the individual horses.
Which Single Day Stablemate is your favorite?
I think the my personal favorites are Amapa and Bahia. But I am a big fan of the Spanish breeds and I am also naturally drawn to Para. Breyer did a great job on their Stablemate selection this year at BreyerFest!
I anticipated having problems acquiring the Breyer Mercado store Special Run 711248 Copacabana. But I think the brutal heat and humidity brought down the number of people willing to wait in line for him and I was able to snag some. It’s a bit hard to tell in the pictures but he is the G3 Mustang mold in a purple decorator with vibrant orange and red flames.

Can you guess what is coming in the mail today?! 4 Breyer Stablemate Diesels!!! They are coming via UPS and won’t be here until around 6pm PST, blargh! I sure which Breyer had shipped them Priority Mail. If you received a Diesel, did it come via USPS or UPS? What color did you receive? I had a lot of inquiries on my initial Diesel post which is linked at the bottom of this post.
I am not offering any presales on Diesel and I do not yet have pricing information. I’m a bit stumped as to how to offer them for sale as I have had so many private offers to purchase. I’m not sure if they will make it to public sale or not. Regardless, there will be pictures so you can see which colors I receive. And maybe even a video of Aidan opening them 🙂

Hey everyone! There is a momentary lull in the storm and the sun is actually shining—though through a minuscule gap in the clouds. So far today has shown us high winds, a tree down on a house, 30 foot waves crashing over the jetty into the harbor, and of course seagulls cowering together waiting for the storm to pass. Soon they will be out and ready to receive French fries tossed from car windows again!
Aidan even took time out of his busy schedule to show us just how many horses are in the house—but in truth that was only a fraction. Maybe next we will dive further into the depths of the garage to open mystery boxes labeled NIB! Bye for now while we try and enjoy the sunshine—while it lasts!
