Breyer Sanibel – New America the Beautiful Web Special Run

Breyer Sanibel 712254

Breyer released the next Web Special Run, Sanibel. He is product number 712254. Sanibel was on display in the Collector’s Club Tent at BreyerFest 2018 and in my opinion, looked better in person than he does in Breyer’s pictures. He is the Breyer Huckleberry Bey mold in a pearly white dapple grey. In person, the pearl to his coat was not at all overwhelming. The pearl seemed to be a bit much on the BreyerFest 2018 Tent Special Run Dead Heat in the palomino appaloosas color.  The Huckleberry Bey mold comes with the dreaded clear plastic disc stand which I highly recommend replacing with a resin stand. Sanibel is limited to 350 pieces and is priced at $135. I assume that the shipping cost will be $17.50.

The last horse released in the America Beautiful Series was Rialto. He was the Totilas mold in a gorgeous glossy black leopard appaloosa. I was lucky enough to be drawn for Rialto but haven’t had the chance to open him  yet, eek. Breyer really did a spectacular job on his finish work. I do still think that my favorite horse in the America the Beautiful Series was Rainier (which we do have 1 available of, I’m keeping the other!)

The Eighth Release in the America the Beautiful Series

In 2018, Breyer’s America the Beautiful Series celebrates special places of beauty and wonder – our National Parks & Forests! From deep, dry canyons to soaring snowcapped mountains, to rolling hills and plunging waterfalls, these beautiful horses honor our country’s diverse landscape. Varied like our nation’s scenery, the horses in this series will delight your imagination and encourage you to explore!

The J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is located on Florida’s Sanibel Island. This barrier island is home to many migratory birds and mangrove trees. Encompassing over 6,000 acres, visitors to the refuge can see Roseate spoonbills year-round. These wading birds have a stunning pink coloring that intensifies as they age. Sanibel Island is also known for its incredible shell-covered beaches.

Breyer’s Sanibel is a pearly dapple rose grey – a nod to the natural beauty found on the island. With his mane and tail blowing in the breeze, you can just imagine him prancing along the surf at sunset! Sanibel comes with a clear removable base, and his belly is marked “Sanibel 2018.”
