Breyer Dundee 2018 Premier Club Special Run
Meet Dundee, the second release in the Breyer 2018 Premier Club. He is a spectacular dunalino pinto Australian Stock Horse. He was sculpted by Nikki Button and what a magnificent job Nikki did for Breyer on her very first sculpt for them! Dundee is performance friendly and is sure to be a performance shower’s dream.
As with Breyers other Premier Club reveal pictures, these photos are of the original resin. The plastic version will undoubtedly have its differences as it will be mass produced. The Breyer Premier Club Duende caused quite a stir over what the prototype looked like and how the production piece turned out. You can see pictures of the prototype Duende in my original Duende Blog Post. I was admittedly disappointed with Breyer’s execution of Duende but Breyer absolutely blew it out of the park with Bristol. I have high hopes for Dundee (not to be confused with Duende, eck)!
I anticipate that Dundee will ship in August. While he is beautiful, I don’t envision myself keeping this one and my personal copy of Dundee will likely be for sale. None the less, I’m quite excited about Dundee’s impending release!

Breyer Jackpot & Woodford – BreyerFest 2018 Raffle Models
Breyer reposted the pictures of two of the BreyerFest 2018 Raffle models. Only 25 of each will be raffled off with 1 additional made for the auction. The first model is Woodford, the new Shire Gelding mold sculpted by Karen Gerhardt in a beautiful silver dapple pinto.
The second model is the brand new Breyer Premier Club Bristol mold in a spectacular chestnut leopard appaloosa. I just love this one (and Woodrow too!)
Here is what the BreyerFest Blog had to say about Woodford and Jackpot.
Over the last 28 years of BreyerFest, we have raised over $1,100,000 for charity! And it’s all thanks to our Breyer Fans!
The contributions came from the money raised in the Silent Auction, Live Auction, and the Breyer Benefit Raffles. Last year alone, more than $85,000 was donated to a wide variety of causes close to our heart.
As usual, we’re hoping for the biggest year ever. But we need your help!
There are several great ways you can contribute to our amazing beneficiaries!
Breyer Benefit Raffle
You’ve already met the Saturday and Sunday Benefit Raffles horses, Woodford and Jackpot. Each of the beautiful models is limited to 26 pieces (25 models for the Raffle and 1 model in the Live Auction). Our lucky winners will certainly be lucky to take home either of these handsome horses.

Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases
Here are the Breyer 2018 Mid Year Releases. I will try to write a separate blog post about each but these pictures should be enough to wet any Breyer collector’s appetite! The mini Alborozo has caused quite a stir and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t up our order so that I can have a chance at him too. We will not have Prism or Nevermore, sorry! The others will be available for preorder shortly including the Stablemate Mystery Surprise Unicorns as both singles and as a complete box. On to the eye candy, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them 🙂

Whip out your wallet Breyer Stablemate Club members, Sapporo is ready to order! He is a new Stablemate mold and is a miniature version of the Brishen mold. The current release on the Brishen mold is the Gypsy Vanner. Just look at how well this fellow translated to miniature!
What’s not to love about Breyer’s Brishen mold? Sure, he might not have the most realistic sculpting but goodness is he ever handsome! I am delighted that Breyer chose to add a Stablemate sized Brishen to the lineup! Speaking of, have you heard about the mini ALBOROZO mid year release? Can you hear me squealing? How about now?? Yes we will have these complete boxes of the Breyer 2018 Stablemates Mystery Unicorn for sale but we don’t yet have the exact price worked out. Helloooo Alborozo! Oh yes he will be mine…
The cost of Sapporo is $15 plus $5.59 for domestic shipping which includes a $5 credit for the Stablemate Club Membership fee. This brings the grand total for Sapporo to $35.59. If you are a current member of the Breyer 2018 Stablemate Club you can see Sapporo at this link. Here is what Breyer has to say about Sapporo:
The Third Release in the 2018 Stablemates Club
Sapporo embodies the joyful demeanor of the Gypsy Vanner! His coat is a warm shaded dapple grey that evokes the feeling of cool, snowy mountains. This is only the second time this miniature of Kathleen Moody’s Gypsy Vanner has been released, and it’s exclusively for Stablemates Club members! Sapporo comes in a miniature Traditional-style window box
